ubuntu nvidia 驱动安装

显卡是nvidia geforce 8400M G, ubuntu 论坛上说的方法是装nvidia-glx, 我看了看源里, 除了这个包还有个nvidia-glx-new, 但是看说明,似乎太老了, 不认geforce8。 事实确实如此。

于是上nvidia官网下了个驱动, 叫做NVIDIA-Linux-x86-100.14.11-pkg1.run,但是装了不能用, X的错误信息说nvidia kernel interface版本不匹配, 而这个应该是ubuntu的linux-restricted-modules包提供的, 问题可能在这里.

后来在nvidia论坛上证实了这一点, 在http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?s=5e6ef2b1d1fb97772f6b738b135f220b&t=72490说道

If you wish to install the NVIDIA Linux graphics driver on a Debian GNU/Linux or Ubuntu system that ships with Xorg 7.x, please ensure that your system meets the following requirements:

* development tools like make and gcc are installed
* the linux-headers package matching the installed Linux kernel is installed
* the pkg-config and xserver-xorg-dev packages are installed
* the nvidia-glx package has been uninstalled with the --purge option and the files /etc/init.d/nvidia-glx and /etc/init.d/nvidia-kernel do not exist

If you use Ubuntu, please also ensure that the linux-restricted-modules or linux-restricted-modules-common packages have been uninstalled. Alternatively, you can edit the /etc/default/linux-restricted-modules or /etc/default/linux-restricted-modules-common configuration file and disable the NVIDIA linux-restricted kernel modules (nvidia, nvidia_legacy) via:

DISABLED_MODULES="nv nvidia_new"

Additionally, delete the following file if it exists:

/lib/linux-restricted-modules/.nvidia_new_installed

Please note: unfortunately, it has become difficult to keep track of the pre-/post-installation steps required for [K]Ubuntu, and the above instructions may be incomplete. If in doubt, it is recommended that you use your distributor's NVIDIA Linux graphics driver packages, exclusively.

其实我更愿意用配置文件的方法禁掉nvidia-glx, 但是后来想了想, 还是把这个包删了。

这时再装一遍, 重启gdm, 哈哈, 出现了nvidia的logo, 成功了。 如果不想要logo, 在xorg.conf适当位置加入Option "NoLogo" "1"就行了

另外xserver-xorg-dev似乎不是必需的, 至少我这里没装这个也能成功安装驱动。
