I have a geoforce2 board as well

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=436081#436081

I was able to get the NVIDIA-96.43.16_lupu500-k2.6.33.2.pet
to work on Lucid puppy.

The only suggestion I can give is to read the tips page very carefully
http://www.lhpup.org/tips-lhp.htm
then try to install a proprietory driver that Tazoc has
prepared. But it probably won't work.

http://lhpup.org/sfs/%3C%3C-PET/503/System/



If I knew more about compiling I would make a NVIDIA-96.43.16
driver. That's a project for the future Laughing

EDIT: I see that Tazoc has a nvidia 96 driver compiled
http://lhpup.org/pet/5/NVIDIA-96.43.16-k2.6.33.2-xserver-1.7.7.pet

But it says LHP version 502. No mention of 503???
I'll test it and see if it works in 503.

You could try it as well.

After a few tries,the xorg NVdia96 driver works for LHP5.0.3!
don570, you make me so happy,can't thank you enough. Of course,I salute Tarzoc for his driver.
I'm raring to go,but must calm myself down and ask you:Will it work for my other Puppies,eg Wary 511 or 522, Puppy 431(Brunopup actually), and possibly for older puppies/kernels such as Classic Pup 214X-TOP9 as well as Legacy OS 2 based on kernel 2.6.18.1? Hope I'm not asking for too much.
To be exact,I use this one http://lhpup.org/pet/5/NVIDIA-96.43.16-k2.6.33.2-xserver-1.7.7.pet, not the the one for lupu. Aren't they the same?

As an aside,my other problem remains,unrelated to this issue as it was there before when using xvesa,i.e my LHP5.0.3 randomly freezes; I've just created a new pupsave and it's still happening. Memtest ran with no error,shouldn't be overheating problem as Wary 511 runs fine for hours. Sorry,this could be an issue for another thread.Just trying my luck here.Ignore me if I'm being impolite. Still in cloud nine after getting xorg NVidia driver to work for my notebook.Now,got to run FlSynclient to try and configure my touchpad tapping to work.
With people like you all in the Puppy Linux community, the computer world is so much more fun and meaningful, as well as benefiting the world at large.

It will not work, the driver must be compiled for each kernel source used.

@don570 You can compile your own driver as follows:

1. Download the devx and kernel source sfs files and place them in /mnt/home.

2. Run the boot manager in the setup wizard to have them loaded on the next reboot, then reboot.

3. Download the proprietary driver for your graphics card here.

4. Logout to the prompt and switch to the directory that the driver
was downloaded to and execute
Code:
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-270.41.19.run
(substitute your downloaded driver)

5. When it's finished compiling run xorgwizard and choose the nvidia
driver and set the resolution, back at the prompt enter "xwin" to get
back to the desktop.

NOTE: If your distribution has the nouveau driver, it must be removed, otherwise your compile will fail.

Thanks Jim1911 for your prompt reply or I'd have plunged in with disastrous consequences,perhaps.
Much as I appreciate it,I'm afraid I'm not up to the task, being still quite a noob. Btw,my notebook uses the NV11 Geforce 2 Go chipset for all those puppies I multi-boot. Sigh.
One more thing,does it matter that I'm using an external LCD panel in place of my faulty notebook screen? Any synchronization problem?

Do a search for NVIDIA drivers using Puppy Google Search. There is a good chance that someone has already prepared a pet or sfs for the kernel that you are using.

I have no first hand experience using an external LCD panel but it should work fine as long as it's set for the proper resolution.

Thanks Jim. Only managed to find one Nvidia-96.43.13-k2.6.30.5-1.pet that works for my Puppy 431 and very happy with that.

As for Wary 522 and Quickset Wary511, I decided to try my hand at installing the nvidia driver using your method but kept running into "Verifying archive integrity...Error in check sums..." despite having double-checked the checksums to be matching after downloading the devx and source files. Actually,I use an md5sum utility in windows to compare the checksums in Windows as I'm more confident with it than using the Puppy gtkhash calculator to do a visual check.

For Wary 522, I used these files : devx_wary_5.2.2.sfs, kernel_src_2.6.32-uni-45-patched-sfs, and the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.20-pkg1.run.
First, I copied all 3 files to /mnt/home.
Then, run bootconfig manager to load the devx and source files at bootup and reboot.
Next,exited to prompt, cd /mnt/home.
Followed by, sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.20-pkg1.run
And got the error message.

The steps were the same for Quickset Wary511 but I wasn't 100% sure I got the correct files, namely, wary_devx_511.sfs, kernel_src-2.6.32.28-patched.sfs. I based them on what I got from uname -a except that quickset wary uses the small iso without language packs.

Hoped to receive your further guidance or welcome response from anyone for a noob who was gung-ho to plunge into the deep end albeit a failed maiden attempt.
Edit: Just did another checksum to make sure ,this time using puppy's gtkhash and found no discrepancy.

I tried Tazoc's http://lhpup.org/pet/5/NVIDIA-96.43.16-k2.6.33.2-xserver-1.7.7.pet

on Lighthouse 503g and it didn't work for me. There must be a reason
why it's listed for Lighthouse 502 only Crying or Very sad

That's good advice. I've never compiled a video driver. I recently tracked
down a good page on the forum that describes the procedure as well.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=49384

I see that a guy has been collection nvidia drivers but not for Lighthouse.

Make sure you make a copy of your pupsave file!!
If there is any future corruption, that backup fle will allow
you to quickly set up again.

Sorry, I cannot duplicate your error. I did not have Wary 5.2.2 so I installed it and compiled the driver using the same files mentioned above with no errors. Although I used driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86-290.10.run which is the latest version for my card. You must have a bad download of the source or devx file. Also, you may need to download a different driver for your video card.

You could try shinobar's sfs files that he has for Wary. His files are usually very reliable.

Any further discussion should be on the Wary thread or an Nvidia thread. We don't want to hijack this thread.

Solved: Sorry,it turned out to be a faulty Nvidia96.43.20 download,there being no md5sum to check. Sincerely appreciate don and Jim for their kind responses. Success tastes sweet. Very Happy

Subject description: Some menu icons disappeared
 

I noticed a few of the menu icons disappeared with labels remaining, eg under Utilities. Can't recall exactly what I did before that happened but it occurred to both PCs using radeon graphics cards, one Radeon9550 on the built-in radeon driver while the other ,Radeon HD5450, used the ati-catalyst-10.6 driver from Lighthouse Update. 'Refresh menus' or 'fixmenus' in console failed to fix it.

For the HD5450, I tried updating the driver to ati-catalyst-11-12 manually using the ati-driver-installer with the requisite LHP devx and kernel source files successfully but the disappearing-icons problem remains.

Also tried switching from JWM to ICEWM, stil the same, but switching to XFCE restores it to original state, so I don't think it's caused by the radeon driver

How do I restore the icons in JWM and ICEWM? Any guidance appreciated. TIA.

Added: Another strange,probably related,problem, clicking on the desktop causes the wbar to disappear.

I am not a Puppy Linux developer, but I thinik for compilers to work you MAY need the DEVX SFS for 5.03G in order for desired results.

Other community members may provide better answers to this need.

Hope this helps
