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  ;))

hi after installing LinuxMCE-8.10-23154-i386 snapshot, before installing lmce,
in kubuntu i tried:
apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade,

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,

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:
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 ( 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

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?

i saw that the guys over at dianemo/cascade got the gt220 working, i hope when i get the time i get things working also....

maybe it also works if u do a install with only 1 monitor connected to the onboard video and the via webadmin set it to the gt220, or is that a stupid suggestion?

greets Raymond
