Having a problem logging in? This option is best for users with hardware that is supported by the etch-and-a-half kernel but is not supported by the default etch installer. DKMS will build the nvidia module for your system, via the nvidia-kernel-dkms package. Debian Etch, black screen, problems with the ‘x’ server, and the other person is also using an nVidia For users that are finding the patching process to be too complex, I have prepared an alternate patch file that can be used instead and will not require you to manually edit any files.

A good practice is to make a backup of the file before you edit an existing one.

Install using current Debian lenny installer Beginning with Beta 2, the lenny etcch features an install kernel that is very similar to the etch-and-a-half kernel and has a compatibility mode for installing the etch release.

Trademarks are the property of their respective owners.

Automatic Install the nvidia-xconfig package, then run it with sudo. If you read its error output, you debin see that this is because it cannot find the nvidia kernel module. In any event, I don’t see a headers package with either name in the Debian repositories, nor even in snapshot. It’s not professionnal but it’s works. Damn ;- I don’t get any errors from the module compile as far as I can c but a lot of warning Where exactly did you get your Xen kernel?

I hope you know how the “patch” command works, because you’re going to need to do a bit of manual work. Debian This forum is for the discussion of Debian Linux.

This should make it easier to copy the files and post them here. We’ll go from there.

Starting from this release, there are now two methods for installing the 4. If you decide to switch to the proprietary driver, it is highly recommended to reboot because it is incompatible with nouveau, and unloading the latter is not easy and may lead to a blank console.

I tried the commands, and was locked out of root. Then look at the deiban s it tried to change, locate the parts that look most similar to the text that the patch command was looking for, and do the change manually yourself. Does the debian xen kernel package include the patch to export this symbol, or is this still a nidia step?

Script to install Nvidia driver in Debian Squeeze with one click

Version numbers Xorg version numbering has changed since xorg 7. Hmm, that is rather peculiar. Others might use xdmgdm3lightdm. Debian version number follows upstream convention. Out-of-tree kernel module source packages that were provided in etch are not guaranteed to function properly with the 2. I usually avoid proprietary graphics card. Type sudo apt-get install -f to jvidia all dependencies are installed 4.

See swriteboot 8 for more information.

If it’s not debiah the Debian package repositories, you won’t be able to get the right headers with apt-get. However, the help suggested there is way over my head. AT least htis will give you an x pixel screen.

Here’s the belated output from the xorg file: Getting lots of warnings during the compile is normal, as is the tainted kernel message. It is a binary-only Xorg driver requiring a Linux kernel module for its use. The kernel version in the package name would be 2. This update represents no change to the support of previously available packages.

It then redirects the output to a text file video.
