NVidia driver stopped working. Why? And how to re-enable?

Asked by Jem on 2007-05-27

Yesterday I installed some fonts with

sudo aptitude install ttf-gentium ttf-dustin ttf-georgewilliams ttf-sjfonts sun-java6-fonts ttf-larabie-deco ttf-larabie-straight ttf-larabie-uncommon

I also installed an update for my system which was delivered via the update manager. I'm not sure what it was or how to check. It was some kind of library package.

Today I could not log into X. sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg fixes it . sudo nvidia-xconfig breaks it again.

Here's the Xorg log of the failed login.

Hello,

It has nothing to do with the fonts.
Yesterday there was a kernel update.
If you installed the nvidia driver coming with ubuntu then the nvidia driver would have been updated at the same time.

try to paste this in a terminal:
sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx

more information here:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/Nvidia

Jem (jem-mawson) said : #2

Thank you. Unfortunately this did not help. Here's what I tried:

sudo aptitude purge nvidia-glx && sudo aptitude clean nvidia-glx; then
sudo aptitude install nvidia-glx && sudo nvidia-xconfig --> problem returned
sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg --> problem went away
Restricted Drivers Manager / enable NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver / reboot --> problem returns
sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg --> problem went away again

... I have just noticed that driver under device is listed as "nv". Will change to "nvidia" and try again....

Hanusz leszek (leszek-skynet) said : #3

can you paste the result of :
cat /proc/version
apt-cache policy nvidia-glx

Best Hanusz leszek (leszek-skynet) said : #5

you can try to install this kernel:
linux-image-2.6.20-15-generic linux-restricted-modules-2.6.20-15-generic

If it still don't work, you can try to install nvidia-glx-new instead of nvidia-glx

Jem (jem-mawson) said : #6

Thanks Hanusz leszek, that solved my question.

Jem (jem-mawson) said : #7

I didn't know how to change the kernel, so I went with option 2 and installed nvidia-glx-new

Thanks!

hsnart (hsnart) said : #8

I think i have the same problem.
nvidia driver fails to load following kernel update.

Is this a known issue with this kernel update (or nvidia-glx)? i'm ok on the NV driver for a bit if its being worked on.

Vertago1 (vertago1) said : #9

The two different kernels use different versions of gcc for compiling kernel modules, so if the nvidia module for the package was compiled for the older kernel then it will not work with the newer kernel. I found a work around to get the nvidia drivers to work with the newer kernel using the driver release from nvidia's website but then I got stuck on the white screen issue with nvidia's driver while using xserver-xgl. So I am using just the normal xserver-xorg with nvidia's driver and the newer kernel.

I have a forum post about this at: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=773707

I found this page trying to confirm that the issue with the nvidia packages were related to the kernel.
