Installation issues / Re: AVWizard Problem (Fresh Installation)
« on: November 21, 2017, 09:51:36 pm »
I'm moving my server to a new location in my home and my system is apart now. I did a virtualbox install on a laptop and saw same behavior with VB driver. Before I took it apart I entered recovery and did lsmod. It showed nvidia module loaded and no nouveau. But that is in recovery and it is stable. When I can power it up again, what logs should I check?
dmesg log should indicate if loaded nvidia driver supports the video card installed.  In my case I  saw the nvidia driver indicate what particular driver to use with my card. 

I believe that using the nouveau driver still allowed the AVWizard to run.  It's been quite along time since I got my server set up on 14.04, but I believe the setup video did eventually run.

I am having the same issue with net-install. I get flash of Screen with mouse cursor and flash of black screen and flash of screen with 0 in top corner. I am unable to get to a console. My card is verified to work with nvidia-340. I have done all the driver workarounds in nvidia-install.sh and even removed it. I don't think it is a driver issue but i can't sign into a console because the screen with the 0 becomes a flash of the console too fast to sign into.
You can boot into recovery mode and investigate if nvidia driver is loading.

Hello,

the last "fresh" installation is some time ago and i am getting more RAM and more HD space for my core, so i thought to try a 64bit-installation.

I downloaded kubuntu 14.04.5 and executed the mce-install script.
After finishing i did a reboot.
But after rebooting again i am not able to see the calming screen of the avwizard.
It is stucked with trying to maybe start it and something else.

I tried different nvidia versions as mentioned here in the forum with manipulating nvidia-install.sh but without any success.

I was searching the log files for any hint.
One thing i found, which looks a little bit strange, was this, but i am not really an expert in this and not sure that it is of any relevance :)

AVWizard_Run....log is the first log after running mce-install script:
Code: [Select]
==) Log file: "/var/log/Xorg.1.log", Time: Tue Nov 14 16:11:45 2017

I put the whole log at this place:
http://paste.ubuntu.com/25967676/

My video-card is this:
VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation GF119 [GeForce GT 520] [10de:1040]

Kubuntu told me to use nvidia-384.

I divided my harddisk into two partitions. So my old installation (14.04) is running fine with the same hardware.

Does anybody has a helping advice what i can do or have to check?

All the best!
If you can get to a terminal, run 'dmesg | grep -i nvidia'  to determine if the nvidia driver is loading or failing... there might be hints there.

here you go Phenigma:

my CORE (that will only run driver up to version 304.135)
Code: [Select]
00:18:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation G71 [GeForce 7950 GT] [10de:0295] (rev a1)
my MD (that will only run driver up to version 340.102):
Code: [Select]
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation GF116 [GeForce GTX 550 Ti] [10de:1244] (rev a1)

I have quite a similiar experience....fresh install of 14.04. i tried the last image as well as net install. Its booting...displays 0 in the top left, goes blank, reboots. All of this continuously. The graphicscard in this case is a cheap gt710.
Along with modifying nvidia-install.sh, delete  /etc/X11/xorg.conf file AND in /etc/pluto.conf, change Firstboot = false to Firstboot = true...and then reboot

Strange indeed.  My core has older nvidia card that only works with 304 driver.  My MD in living room has a card that will only go as high as 340 driver.  Editing nvidia-install.sh has always worked for my situation..  trying other card may resolve your issue

Did you edit nvidis-install.sh?  Or temporarily rename it?  It's set to run automatically and can reinstall over the other nvidia driver.  You can also switch to another terminal and observe log messages...that is how I determined that my card was not supported by the drivers Tgat nvidia-instsll.sh was installing.

On 16.04, Web administration comes up as blank page...someone else noted somewhere that the mysql version in 16.04 has different requirement for root logo (or something like that)

One of the programmers would know that answer.  I know it gets called to run in certain conditions.

I made a mistake... it is actually nvidia 304.135 (not 302)

When my MD was doing this, I was watching the dmesg log (on my core) at the file  /usr/pluto/diskless/35/var/log and saw that there were messages stating that no NVIDIA card was found supported by the driver (340 and 352)
in nvidia-install.sh there is this
Code: [Select]
case " $Driver_Current_Supported " in *" $PCI_Id "*)
                case $(lsb_release -cs) in
                        precise)
                                echo "nvidia-340"       ;;
                        trusty)
                                echo "nvidia-352"       ;;
                        xenial)
                                echo "nvidia-361"       ;;
                esac
                return 1
and there is
Code: [Select]
        case $(lsb_release -cs) in
                precise)
                        echo "nvidia-340"
                        return 1
                        ;;
                trusty)
                        echo "nvidia-352"
                        return 1
                        ;;
                xenial)
                        echo "nvidia-361"
                        return 1
                        ;;
        esac
 

I changed them all to "nvidia-304" in the nvidia-install.sh that was in  /usr/pluto/diskless/35/usr/pluto/bin/ directory (for my media director device 35...yours may be different if MD).   You should also be able to edit this file on the core /usr/pluto/bin/nvidia-install.sh


If I remember, it wasnt until i modified /etc/pluto.conf and changed either 'firstboot' or 'avwizarddone' values (or both) to get it to re-install the correct nvidia-304 driver.

i did some minutes ago.

removed the nvidia drives (NVIDIA NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.102.run --uninstall), removed all nvidia drives (304, 375, etc), downloaded from pastebin, used and the result was the same, with 340. Changed to 304, and the result was the same.

From ssh i could see AVWizard installing 340. did not work. Could see installing 304. Did not work either.

Any driver your recomend?

This hardware configuration worked with 10.04 (well, i build it and used the HD with lmce 10.04).

TIA
Last I looked, in nvidia-install.sh, the selection of which nvidia driver version is based on the version of Ubuntu.  Even though I'm running 14.04, my graphics card only works with the 302 driver.  I edited nvidia-install.sh to only be able to install the 302 driver. 

You may have similar situation

Phenigma, in reply #6 you made mention of a 'manual setup' to do exotic NIC setup.  A while back I had queried about being able to configure a 'bridge' in the web administration network page. 

I know it isn't all that hard to set up the bridging, but getting the firewall configured for the bridged NICs is difficult for novices like me. 

If any reconfigure of the network setup pages is going to be done,  could the bridging aspect be re-visited?

Thanks,
Dennis
