nvidia driver not working after equo install

Postby gabrielmenini » Mon Jan 28, 2008 3:06

Hello, fora!

Last night I was installing the binary version of VirtualBox using equo:
Code: Select all
# equo install app-emulation/virtualbox-bin-1.5.2 app-emulation/virtualbox-modules-1.5.2-r1


A lot of packages were downloaded, including the sources for the 2.5.23 kernel....
I was able to start VirtualBox binary ed. with USB support, until I restarted X :x

Apparently, the nVIDIA driver version equo installed isn't compatible with the one I was using, look at my dmesg:
Code: Select all
dmesg:

[   34.208656] NVRM: loading NVIDIA UNIX x86_64 Kernel Module  100.14.19  Wed Sep 12 14:08:38 PDT 2007

[   61.674245] NVRM: API mismatch: the client has the version 169.07, but
[   61.674247] NVRM: this kernel module has the version 100.14.19.  Please
[   61.674249] NVRM: make sure that this kernel module and all NVIDIA driver
[   61.674251] NVRM: components have the same version.


Apparently the 'client' (user space, maybe?) driver was updated but it has API inconsistencies with the one loaded by the kernel... I thought the driver was going to be rebuilded or something like that, but no...

Do I have to build it?
Do I have to recompile my kernel for that driver v. 169.07 to work?

I really would prefer to keep using the 100.14.19 driver. It was stable for me ...and I had X !!!

Here I copy some extra info:

I see you have 2 nvidia-driver versions installed:

The question is.... using emerge (portage) or equo (entrophy)? :roll:

you may want to install the 100.14* driver and not the newest 169.07 driver if you run a Nvidia GForce Go 6150M (the stock mobile/laptop nvidia graphics card). The newest driver causes a world of hurt with that chipset (read: kdm/gdm boots into a black void of death that you can't even ssh into).

My box is a desktop with nVIDIA chipset and I hardly remember which one is... but doesn't seem to be a 6150M.

Will check it later :alien:

I suggest you to uninstall both and reinstall the latest driver.


The question is.... using emerge (portage) or equo (entrophy)? :roll:


Don't know, never used equo. What I can say is that with portage it works, but probably with equo also. Just try! :D
