Hello folks...

I got my self a "new" laptop with finally some nice specs...

Its a ASUS U36S

I really like to run Lupu and/or Lupu plus

This has the 2.6.33.2 kernel... All works beutifully, apart that I can not get the Nvidia driver to get my flying... The Nvidia card inside is the GL 520M that also has this "optimus" technology

I think I need to drop to my knees here and ask for some advice on how to get this driver to work with the 1366x768 as I have tried the nvidia-glx-304.51.sfs , but there is no 1366x768 resolution to chose as i drop to xorgwizard and once done chosing the driver the laptop screen goes black and the driver is not picked up...

EDIT... The driver is now installed, but not chosen. Still i come to a black screen and no 1366 option... *END OF EDIT*

Anyone has a similar Nvidia card that can guide me?

I can live with just using 70% of the ram installed with Lupu, but I really want to have a snappy screen..

Another Edit...

I now got the proper resolution... But once i boot the machine i get this message from Nvidia that i should run xorgwizard... when i do that the screen goes black no matter what resolution i choose...

There is no choice for 1366 resolution there...

hope for some advice... But i am very happy just to get the right resolution

Here is my xorg.conf

Someone must correct me if I am wrong, but I believe a new 'xorg.conf' will automatically be built if you don't have one. I know that is the case with the big Mesa driver package, it will start the process by just restarting X. You can rename your existing xorg.conf, then restart X from the menu. Eventually, you can go to console by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Backspace. In the console, don't start 'xorgwizard', but try first to run 'xwin'. The process may then build a new 'xorg.conf', and start X. If not, run 'xorgwizard', then 'xwin'.

Is it possible for 'getnvidia' package to be altered to allow for choosing which nvidia driver to build?

example terminal codes:
getnvidia http://url/to/driver.run
getnvidia /path/to/driver.run

I am having difficulty understanding the code in the getnvidia script relating to downloading or what driver file to run.

There are 2 difficulties:
1. Getnvidia uses the binary program 'nvidia-installer' provided by Nvidia, which automatically chooses the most recent version driver.
2. I have not the hardware to test old version drivers.

I hope someone makes the script which supports old version drivers under your concept.

Hi

I wanted to create the 304.88 version of the nvidia driver for Precise 5.6 k3.2.44 as I apparently need that version for my desktop.

I downloaded NVIDIA-Linux-x86-304.88.run

I installed getnvidia 0.9 onto a pristine frugal install of Precise 5.6 (no savefile) with the devx and kernel sources loaded by load-sfs-on-the-fly

I had 3 problems:

1. getnvidia insisted on there being an internet connection even though I wanted it to use a file that I had already downloaded

2. the new xorg-wizard had chosen nouveau and getnvidia did not seem to want to create the nvidia sfs whilst nouveau was in use

3. the .run file was not recognised as valid:
Quote:
getnvidia 0.9
This program guides to make SFS of the NVIDIA driver.

Work space - OK
devx package - OK
Kernel source package - OK
No nouveau - NG
nvidia-installer - OK
Internet connection - OK
NVIDIA driver source file - NG

The 'nouveau' driver conflicts with the NVIDIA. You need to reboot PC to disable 'nouveau'.
Of course, you need to save your session.
'NVIDIA-Linux-x86-304.88.run' does not seem a valid NVIDIA driver source file.


So I'm currently stuck and would welcome suggestions on how to proceed.

Thanks
peebee

Hi peebee,
Please see my post in the 5.6 thread. You may wish to try that sfs. If however you wish to compile
your own driver you WILL need a savefile and you WILL need to first blacklist the Nouveau module.
So.....
1. Create a savefile and reboot.
2. Blacklist the Nouveau module and reboot.
3. Load the devx & kernel SFSs.
4. Drop to a command prompt in the same directory as you have the run file. (Check with ls when there)
5. Type sh ./first few letters of the name of the run file observing the case.
6. Press Tab key to complete the full name followed by enter.
