Re: Latest Kernel Update

Yup, looks like the latest nVidia files have a problem - I got the kernel update OK first thing Saturday (14th) and it rebooted fine with the akmods nVidia kernel module. At the end of the day I got the following updates just before shutting down

... and on booting this morning I got the "Oops! Something's gone wrong" message rather than the login prompt. I had to rip out the nVidia drivers and revert to nouveau to get a login even in Gome Fallback mode. Looks like Gnome Shell was core-dumping

Re: Latest Kernel Update

Hmmm.

Everything is still working well here after updates.

Code:
$ uname -r
3.3.1-5.fc16.x86_64

$ lspci -s 01:00.0
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G92 [GeForce GTS 250] (rev a2)
Looks like it may be a card-specific kind of a problem.

Re: Latest Kernel Update

I'm unable to login, tried to boot previous kernels using grub menu list but it didnt help, is there a way to bypass GUI login screen and boot on the terminal instead? or to use default graphics driver- revert back to nouveau. Thanks

Re: Latest Kernel Update

Try booting to runlevel 3 and then using startx to go to GUI.

I like your thinking, Yellowman, but unfortunately it didn't help.

I agree, Dan - must be card-specific otherwise the forum would be clogged with "me too's"!

To get back to nouveau, I did:

Code:
vi /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf:
    # RPM Fusion blacklist for nouveau driver - you need to run as root:
    # dracut -f /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)
    # if nouveau is loaded despite this file.
    #blacklist nouveau
    blacklist nvidia

vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf:
    # RPM Fusion - nvidia-xorg.conf
    # 
    Section "Device"
    	Identifier  "Videocard0"
    	Driver      "nouveau"
    EndSection

vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-nvidia.conf:
    #This file is provided by xorg-x11-drv-nvidia
    #Do not edit

    Section "Files"
    #	ModulePath   "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia"
    	ModulePath   "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules"
    EndSection

cd /boot
dracut -f
reboot
Remember if the GUI fails to start, you should be able to get to a console by pressing <Alt><Ctrl><F3> (in fact, any function key up to <F7> has a console, <F1> is the GUI by default, <F2> is where the GUI moves if it restarts).

Re: Latest Kernel Update

Here is what I did.

I used a Fedora Live CD to got to the NVIDIA Linux site to get their 295.40 driver file "NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-295.40.run" at http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux-d...40-driver.html which I download to the /tmp folder on my computer.

Then I rebooted the computer to boot from hard drive. After the gnome login failed with "Oops! Something's gone wrong", I hit control-alt-F2 to get to a console login prompt and logged in from there.

Next I killed the running X server with "sudo init 3" and logged in again.

Go to the /tmp folder and find the "NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-295.40.run" file that was downloaded. This file itself won't repair the problem because the 295.40 driver is the problem. NVIDIA must know that even though the still have the file up as the latest download, but you run the file with the "update" option it will down load the previous version and install that. So, run it the following way:

First make sure it's executable:

"chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-295.40.run"

Then:

"sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-295.40.run --update"

You will see that it connects to the NVIDIA ftp site and downloads the 295.33 version of the driver and installs that.

This worked for me. Thanks.

Seems this broke all my installed kernel versions and created quite the mess. I'm running Fedora 16 on an older laptop with old GeForce Go 7150M graphics chip, so strange NVIDIA introduced a bug to trash my install.

Re: Latest Kernel Update

I will stick to the default graphics driver this time, and not to worry about any kernel updates.. going to proprietary drivers will just messed up everything during updates... I just need a working desktop for now

Re: Latest Kernel Update

I also have a problem after the latest kernel and nvidia update giving me the "Oops" thing. In my case, the mb has a built in geforce 7000 graphics card. At the kernel boot screen, press "e", this gets one to the boot up script in command line. At the end of "Linux" line, insert "3", then press F10. It should boot you into command line. Login as root. Then I followed GoinEasy9's post in this thread: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=235775 (I substituted "akmod" for "kmod" as that's what I've used). Then reboot.
Although the bootup process still uses the nvidia style, it brings up the xfce graphical interface (I use that instead of gnome 3). It seem seems to work so far.

Please do not use 295.40 or the security patch with GeForce 6, 7 or 8800GTX/GTS cards

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=178460


Quote:
We have been made aware of an interaction problem between the fix contained in the newest release any any card with a chip older than G80, inclusive. This includes the full GeForce 6 and 7 series as well as GeForce 8800GTX and first-gen 8800GTS. We are actively working on resolving this issue and will provide an update as soon as possible.

The symptoms can include graphical corruption, performance issues, crashes and temporary hangs.

The release should be perfectly safe to use with more recent cards than that; I'll update this thread ASAP.

Thanks,
- Pierre-Loup
