Nvidia upgrade 304.84 breaks tty
« on: 2013/03/16, 00:02:21 »
After upgrade to 304.84 CTRL+ALT+F1 drops to a black tty with no cursor.

Maybe things aren't all that bad as CTRL+ALT+F7 returns the desktop just as it should.

A bug has been filed so perhaps its best to hold off the driver upgrade until the issue is resolved.

Why not just use 313.18 ?
Code: [Select]
Graphics:  Card: NVIDIA GF106 [GeForce GTS 450] X.Org: 1.12.4 driver: nvidia Resolution: 1920x1200@60.0hz

I personally dont't have, but I know of:

experiencing siduction runs better than my gentoo makes me know I know nothing

piper: I'm not really concerned with my driver problems. This page is for warning others not for describing individual issues.

A bug has been filed to NVIDIA #1253579

I wonder how you could upgrade to 304.84 *tree days earlier* than me although I (on 32 bit) did d-u tree times a day during the last days?

And the  i386 304.84-1 which did come in the last hours, is it still the buggy one?
Ok, you can't code, but you still might be able to write a bug report for Debian's sake

Maybe it isnt the right place to ask

304.84 is listed in here:
http://www.nvidia.de/Download/Find.aspx?lang=de

313.18 is not listed. (Yeah, I know it is in experimental)
But why is a "non nvidia" version there?

Hm?

Btw, 313.26-0.siduction.2 works for me without issues.

But heads up when you have a Geforce 6 or 7.

When updating to the experimental driver (here only the Debian/experimental driver available, not the above mentioned one from siduction) libxvmcnvidia1 will be removed. Which does not seem to be a good idea:

... NVIDIA binary XvMC library
 These binary library provides the NVIDIA XvMC implementation which supports
 GeForce 6 series and GeForce 7 series graphics cards.
 See /usr/share/doc/libgl1-nvidia-glx/README.txt.gz
 for instructions how to enable XvMC acceleration.

Hm?
The driver from experimental does not work for cards < GeForce 8xxx, so there is no need for this lib anymore.

Thanks for making this clear to us.

But this also means, that users with Geforce 6 or 7 should stick with the driver from testing (as the unstable driver has the here mentioned bug)?

I think, it only means, that XvMC is without the lib not available, i can test it on a 6xxx system later.
313.26 works for me with 2xx GTX

Ich dachte, dass da mit der Bezeichnung 313.26 was nicht stimmt, weil ich den Treiber auf der Seite nicht gefunden habe. Ist aber hier zu finden: ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/
von daher: mein versehen.

Ganz allgemein reden wir hier eigentlich nie über treiber von ftp://download.nvidia.com/$, sondern nur über welche aus Debian oder siduction repos.

Für 313.26 mußt du natürlich das Debian/*experimental* repo bemühen (siehe weiter oben).



Generally we don't speak here about drivers from ftp://download.nvidia.com/$. Instead we use Debian or siduction repos.

You may find 313.26 in Debian/*experimental* (see above).

313.26-1 from experimental does NOT work with my 6xxx
modprobe says:
ERROR: could not insert nvidia: No such device

OT:
Ja michaa, ich weiß. Ich habe meine auch aus dem Experimental. Ich schaue nur ab und an mal kurz drüber, was die Version "neues" bringt. Als es dann die Version 313.26 auf http://www.nvidia.de/Download/Find.aspx?lang=de nicht gab, war ich kurz verwirrt und dachte, dass da vll Debian eine falsche Versionnummer "angegeben" hat, hab dann aber die Version auf dem FTP gefunden, von daher hatte sich das erledigt.
