Beta2 screwed up the video on all of my MDs
« on: December 03, 2009, 03:48:14 am »
When I upgraded, I got an error that the MD could not initialize opengl. I went ahead and did a clean install, and now during the video setup, any video res over 640x480 is screwed up. When the MD comes up I still get the openGL error.

 I have the Nvidia 7200 low profile cards.

Is the Nvidia 7200 no longer supported with beta2? Anyone have a clue what I could try, I have been working on it for days. My whole system is useless right now.

Try running

#dkms status

make sure you have nvidia 195.22 installed.
then run nvidia-xconfig and reboot.

THANK YOU!!! It works perfectly. I punched myself in the face for not thinking of it.

Beta2 is beautiful!

Currently on my Fresh Beta 2 install I have UI1 and 640x480, I'm not able to go to the "Video Res & Audio Setup" either from the boot or from the Advanced tab.

I tried to upgrade the nvidia driver before and screwed up my installation, I want to upgrade my nvidia driver now, here's what I did before:

1) Disable X Server
2) wget http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/195.22/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-195.22-pkg1.run
3) sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-195.22-pkg1.run

Did I miss anything here !!!

Yes,  if you use that method, the nvidia drivers wont get updated properly when the kernel updates, the beta2 install should install 195.22.  If for some reason you don't have 195.22, use  apt.

sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-195

to be exact.

I had some trouble with this, the AVwizard kept starting up defaulting to 50hz which none of my plasmas supported. I changed my XORG file to use the settings returned from EDID and then added "exit 0" to second line of /usr/pluto/bin/XConfigure.sh to stop linuxmce from changing my xorg.conf. After that every thing was fine.

Get to terminal and run sudo /usr/pluto/bin/RebootWithAVWizard.sh

then press the keys for connector type.

or try 5 seems to always work for me with 640x480 defaults.

After few days of debugging I didn't go any where, I decided to reinstall Beta 2 again from scratch, this time I captured all the console output to a file at the same time I monitored the output on the screen, amazing no errors from the installation, and when  I run the postinstall script it installed nvidia latest driver, and everything came up without any issues.

I suggest for new installation to capture the installation log, and check if there is any signifcant errors, if yes, restart the installation process over again maybe in a day or 2, possible some servers are down.
