Installation issues / UPDATE: NVidia GT220, no AVWizard
« on: August 02, 2010, 10:27:24 am »
hi all,

just wanted to give a update,

sadly my core died, i wanted to swap the gt220 for a ati-card wich i had somewhere laying around,
the ati-card slipped through my fingers and landed on my mainboard and broke it.

the good news is, now i have to get another mainboard  ;)
i will get one without onboard graphics  ;D

i was going to get another mainboard anyway because after roughfly 6 weeks of trying,
dispite all the good suggestions and help from you all,
i wasn't able to get it working (wich was very frustrating),

a big thanks to everyone who posted their suggestions and helped me!
(i learned a lot from it)

i will post my new setup when i get it up and running
if someone has a suggestions for a good AM3 mainboard, please let me know.

Installation issues / updating xorg-server/nvidia drivers
« on: July 23, 2010, 09:31:14 pm »
having much trouble installing my nvidia gt220 with the onboard ati X200 gave me an idea.
i thought others may want to do this for their own purpose so i made a new topic.

is there a way to update the xorg-server and the nvidia-driver to the latest and greatest?

if yes could someone please discribe in detail (i'm fairly new to this  ;))

New Update!

with lsmod i saw the modules ati_agp and agpgart loaded so blacklisted them;
after this i tried via the webadmin to configure the onscreen orbiter;
i tried DVI, HDMI, HDMI1,... no luck
also the AVWizard could not be used.

so i tried a new install;
after the kubuntu install, before i did anything, i blacklisted the above and yhen tried the 195 driver from nvidia,... still no luck
but strangly if i change driver back to "vesa" in the xorg.conf i get picture...

at the end of the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file there is this message:
"Saw signal 11.  Server aborting."

i have been seeking a solution for this for about 3 weeks.....
anybody any ideas?

hi all, i wanna give u an update as to how far i came along:

first i tried to manually change the xorg.conf file, but without of luck, somehow it automaticly changed back to default (could be because i was trying to enter AVWizard).

then with the gt220 still in the system i tried to blacklist the onboard card, but wasn't shure wat to blacklist "ATI", "fglrx", "vesa" or something else; btw do u have to type with or without capital letter?;
still no luck.

yesterday i took out the gt220 and installed the 810 snaphot 23154;
and voila i got myself a working 810 core, no problem, with UI1;
so as MANDINGO suggested i put the gt220 back in but sadly that didn't work, i got the boot screen but the orbiter doesn't get displayed;
i get at tty1 the status updates: orbiter generation started etc....;
i can log in at tty1-tty4;
at ctrl+alt+7 i get a blank screen with cursor flashing;
at ctrl+alt+8 i get to see some data i think about the launch manager.

on the sunny side i got the new weborbiter 2.0 working and i am loving it, super work!
and i can log into the webadmin.

since i wanna connect through DVI,
it tried via the webadmin the following settings, without luck (i also get this resolution in the orbiter):
Connector = DVI
Audio Settings = S
Video Settings = 1280 1024/60
Architecture = i386
Extra Parameters = 0
TV Standard = 1280x1024
Release = 810
Video Card = Standard Video
Sound Card= Standard Sound Card
Hardware Acceleration = xv

but i noticed that the fields "IP" and "MAC" are empty, will this matter?
how to get "IP" and "MAC" of my core?

does anyone have any suggestions?

thanks alot,

br,
Raymond

thanks kyfalcon,

i have an onboard ati wich i need to get out of my way  ;)

1. Remove the add-on graphics card and boot into your ubuntu install as normal.

2. Open terminal and enter the following without quotes:

"sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist"

3. Add the following two entries without quotes to the end of the file:

"blacklist agpgart"
"blacklist intel_agp"

4. Shutdown the pc and reinstall the add-on graphics card.

5. Connect monitor to add-on card and boot pc.

i wanna use the dvi connector on the add-on card, i'm having a few questions:

wil i use the same commands?
what is blacklist?
do u first install linuxmce without the add-on card?
what exactly do these commands do?

thanks up front

Hi Andrew,

when i read ur approach of Touch Orbiter it made me think about another project i read about on the net:
www.OpenRemote.org
they also have a controler/client setup, however they have a very easy way of designing ur own remote.
maybe this is a feature wich could be implemented in your Touch Orbiter.

just wanted to share the idea

Ok thanks,

If i do this right after the install, before i connect any md, do i still have to do this on the core and the md?

All the best

hi Andrew,

first up many thanks for such super work, looks amazing,
when i get my core/hybrid up and running (http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=10414.0) i will look into it.
looks stunning!

but the url u posted misses a "L" at the end, therefore it doesn't point to the right site.

All the best
Raymond

I know that dianemo/cascade uses GT220 successfully with 0810. As I already wrote I tried both ways - existing and new installations but without luck. Andrew told me that GT220 has different output numeration then integrated cards. HDMI output of GT220 will be HDMI2 (DVI - HDMI1) but for integrated cards both DVI and HDMI point to HDMI1. Maybe this is a trick. I didn't have a time to experiment with it during World Cup  Hope now I have.

hi nite_man,
could u explain more about output numeration?
do u mean the 'Option "ConnectedMonitor" "XXX"' part in the xorg.conf file?
and how exactly is it meant to be used?
