Re: F16,F15 & F14 Nvidia driver guides

hi. can anyone advise what i have to do to get any kind of display during bootup. i've just built a new server based on a minimal installation of fc16. i've installed the nvidia drivers (for a gt 430 card) from the rpmfusion repo and i simply get a blank screen following the grub menu.

kernels i've tested with :
kernel-3.2.1-3.fc16.x86_64
kernel-3.2.2-1.fc16.x86_64

the only plymouth packages installed are :
plymouth-core-libs-0.8.4-0.20110822.3.fc16.x86_64
plymouth-0.8.4-0.20110822.3.fc16.x86_64
plymouth-scripts-0.8.4-0.20110822.3.fc16.x86_64

i have tried :

1. recreating the initramfs files
2. setting the GRUB_GFXMODE and GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX parameters to various values (including "text"). running grub2-mkconfig after adding the entries to /etc/default/grub makes no difference to the resulting grub config file.
3. removing "rhgb" from the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX parameter and recreating the grub config file.

all to no avail. i'm aware of the issue in the previous post but this happens with older versions of systemd.

i don't mind if i have the full graphical splash, the progress bar, or full text during boot, i just want to see the luks prompt for my encrypted filesystems and then the login prompts on the ttys. cheers.

Can I just check you're running:

grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

Not just grub2-mkconfig?

Re: F16,F15 & F14 Nvidia driver guides

yeah, that is the command i am running. a new config file is being written, it just doesn't contain the statements i'd expect. i've been going through the scripts that generate the config and i can see that it's not running the functions that add/amend the gfx statements. i'm just trying to work out why at the moment, it seems to be something to do with the GRUB_TERMINAL_INPUT & GRUB_TERMINAL_OUTPUT variables not being set.

---------- Post added at 06:01 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:44 PM ----------

i've tried setting the :
set gfxpayload=
parameter manually in the grub config file, but this still makes no difference.

one thing that has just crossed my mind that i didn't originally state is that the server is connected to the monitor via dvi-d, not vga. not sure if this makes a difference. i can test using vga but ultimately i need it working via dvi-d.

Re: F16,F15 & F14 Nvidia driver guides

Hi guys,

Fedora 16, I'm following instructions line by line, and on errors I'm reviewing forums advices and use only what I think is appropriate.

After many tries and rollbacks, I'm now asking for your help.

Note that I also installed PAE because I have excatly 4GB ram, bios remapping enabled, but I still cannot get Fedora to see 4GB of ram, now changes rolled back and using normal kernel. I will fix this later, maybe.

Current active configuration (/root/xorg.conf.new, this is because Xorg -configure fails):
Code:
rpm -qa *\nvidia\*  *\kernel\*|sort;uname -r;lsmod |grep -e nvidia -e nouveau;cat /root/xorg.conf.new

Re: F16,F15 & F14 Nvidia driver guides

Rollback!

Code:
su
yum remove nvidia*
mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r)-nouveau.img /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img
dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)
# removed "rdblacklist=nouveau nouveau.modeset=0" from GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
reboot

Everything seems to work, but

As far I understand GRUB_GFXMODE and GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX are needed to restore the loading progress only, haven't use this yet.

As Carrot Crunch, I had the same issue with grub2-mkconfig not saving, did it twice and saved, reboot and was gone ... or just my imagination, not sure.

As as much I'd love to use proper drivers, I still prefer a error free installation.

Thanks in advance.

---------- Post added at 05:05 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:35 PM ----------

More details about my "not tray bar, no menus and no windows are able to display" comment.

It seems there is a layer hiding everything down, I can add a new default panel tray via right click (goes at the top), open a program (stays invisible), right click on the software panel tray place holder -> advanced -> keep above others.

The program now displays, but suddenly while working everything disappear again including new widgets, so I have to add the tray back to keep moving.

Upon reboot new widgets comes back but not the new tray.

Issue is created by installing nVidia drivers, but not sure if I'm on topic now or not.

Cheers

On the mean time I've installed easylife, exact same results for nvidia drivers, but at the end I've got it everything working.

If you have the same issue, an empty and apparently unusable desktop then:
add at least Task Manager and KDE menu widgets to teh desktop and use those two to work with.

Run Konsole, right click on the Konsole place holder in the Task Manager widget -> advanced -> keep above others.

Configure the monitor(s) and other settings with
Code:
sudo nvidia-settings
Save changes "merging" with current xorg.conf and reboot.

While looging off, KDE4 crashed, and when it comeback alive I had my desktop fully working!
Do you remember when I've tried to add a new panel and it never showed up?
Now they are all there! Delete them all, don't worry if KDE4 keep crashing crashing.

Somehow drivers are installed correctly, but it cause conflicts.

End of the story, get nvidia-settings to create xorg.conf for you.
A xorg restart or a reboot would probably pickup new settings, in my case it fixed it self when KDE4 crashed.

Hope it works for someone of you or shed some light to the issue.

Cheers

As far I understand GRUB_GFXMODE and GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX are needed to restore the loading progress only, haven't use this yet.

As Carrot Crunch, I had the same issue with grub2-mkconfig not saving, did it twice and saved, reboot and was gone ... or just my imagination, not sure.

As as much I'd love to use proper drivers, I still prefer a error free installation.

Thanks in advance.

More details about my "not tray bar, no menus and no windows are able to display" comment.

It seems there is a layer hiding everything down, I can add a new default panel tray via right click (goes at the top), open a program (stays invisible), right click on the software panel tray place holder -> advanced -> keep above others.

The program now displays, but suddenly while working everything disappear again including new widgets, so I have to add the tray back to keep moving.

Upon reboot new widgets comes back but not the new tray.

Issue is created by installing nVidia drivers, but not sure if I'm on topic now or not.

You final solution is senseless and pointless, why didn't you just add the paths to the files section?


Code:
[leigh@main_pc ~]$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-nvidia.conf 
#This file is provided by xorg-x11-drv-nvidia

Re: F16,F15 & F14 Nvidia driver guides

Just a quick note to let the owners of any Nvidia GeForce Go 7400 that the card only works correctly (as tested on opensuse 12.1) with the GeForce Fx module driver (fedora 15).

Re: F16,F15 & F14 Nvidia driver guides

Leigh, something weird I've noticed back then and still happening is that modifying /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d00-nvidia.conf doesn't really help here.

Code:
[marco@fedora ~]$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-nvidia.conf | awk '/Section "Files"/,/EndSection/'

It's clear that Xorg is not using any ModulePaths declared from within xorg.conf.d files, is it because I'm doing something wrong or should I report a bug (and to whom)?

Re: F16,F15 & F14 Nvidia driver guides

I don't have a GForce video card, I have an NVS 3100M. Does this guide still apply to me? How can I install my driver? thanks
