Bug Description

Please release nvidia packages with kernel modules compiled with gcc 4.2 (or whatever is required for kernel 2.6.24) for the amd64 arch

**********Original message**********
Yesterday I installed some fonts with

sudo aptitude install ttf-gentium ttf-dustin ttf-georgewilliams ttf-sjfonts sun-java6-fonts ttf-larabie-deco ttf-larabie-straight ttf-larabie-uncommon

I also installed an update for my system which was delivered via the update manager. I'm not sure what it was or how to check. It was some kind of library package.

Today I could not log into X. sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg fixes it . sudo nvidia-xconfig breaks it again.

Here's the Xorg log of the failed login.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Unfortunately we can't fix it, because your description does not yet have enough information.

Please include the following additional information:

1. Please include the output of the command "uname -a" in your next response. It should be one, long line of text which includes the exact kernel version you're running, as well as the CPU architecture.
2. Please run the command "dmesg > dmesg.log" after a fresh boot and attach the resulting file "dmesg.log" to this bug report.
3. Please attach your X server configuration file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.0.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments
4. Please run the command "dpkg -l "linux*2.6.24*" | grep ^ii > dpkg-l.log" and attach the resulting file "dpkg-l.log" to this bug report

I want to point out that when I remove the nvidia-glx-new package and run nvidia's proprietary installation it works with that xorg.conf file. I know it goes through a step where it builds the kernel module. If you want me to upload the kernel modules it built to check them out against the ones in the package I can.

From the last comment the package linux-restricted-modules doesn't seem to be installed.
Please check if linux-restricted-modules package for your kernel is installed and install it if it isn't.

If it still doesn't work, then switch to a console and run the commands :
sudo depmod -a
then
sudo modprobe nvidia
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start
or reboot

Post a comment to tell the result.

Yeah, I just tried that on my other amd64 system and it worked. Is there supposed to be a dependency between nvidia-glx-new and the linux-restricted-modules? If one could be added this would prevent further headache.

I'm glad it work. There's obviously a dependency issue here between nvidia-glx and kernel modules.

I'll open a new bug report and mark yours as a duplicate.

I have the problem where the Nvidia driver will not load and a get low-res screens only.

I had high res-screens and they vanished as I was working last week

The xorg.log contains crap like above, BTW why don't the designers of this blog
collapse long attachments into GUI tabs rather than forcing us to scroll through
all that crap? This is especially true when the kernel broke your high-res screens :-)

I got:

 $ sudo depmod -a

This problem occured for me on both Ubuntu 8.10 and 9.10 on the same system.

I cannot use nvidia-xconfig or the screen resolution GUI.

pcimodules sees the module.

I got high res from Windows Vista and from Knoppix 5.1.1 Live CD.

Reading the related bug where changes will not be made to restricted modules
it sounds like the card has become unsppported hardware. If so, I'll head for the
exit and uninstall Ubuntu. Until that fateful decision, any useful help would be
apprecated.
