AVWizard Problem (Fresh Installation) [solved]

<< < (2/8) > >>

G.I.R.:
hgrmmmpfff,

sorry, i had the hilarious idea to do a hardware upgrade on my hybrid-core and broke my second networkadapter.
As soon as this is fixed i will post the dmesg output.
i have two partitions, one with the old installation and another with the new one.
i can take a look at the log-files by letting linuxmce mount the other partition when my core is back from the dead. :)

thanks for replying!

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.

so, today i finally could try some things.

this is the output of dmesg | grep -i nvidia on the fresh installation:

i tried using the nouveau driver to get into avwizard by edditing the driver part in xorg.conf and making nvidia-install.sh unusable by just writing "exit 0" into it. (recovery mode;mount -o remount,rw / )
i got then a xserver as it seems but no avwizard. it installed a few things writing in the well known red text but ended with a low resolution windows and a mousepointer.
I executed Rebootwithavwizard.sh for that.

i thought i also tried to use nvidia-375 for the new installation but will try that again.

as i read in the wiki (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Display_Drivers#The_AVWizard_crashes_X-windows) can it be that only the avwizard don`t like the graphic device / driver?

KDE seem to work okay after installation.

is it possible to just use some config-files from my other working partition of linuxmce?

how can i make avwizard run with the nouveau driver and defuse nvidia-install.sh?

In the installation that is failing, the nvidia driver is 384.xx and it doesn't create the system devices needed. 

Your working installation is loading nvidia 377.xx driver and it does create the system devices.

I would get to a terminal and edit the nvidia-install.sh file replacing any nvidia-384 reference to either nvidia-340 or nvidia-377 ...  save the changes and to force AVWIZARD to run, execute the following

/usr/pluto/bin/RebootWithAVWizard.sh

It should run the wizard after the reboot

Good luck
