NVIDIA disappearing

Recommended Posts

I wonder why sometimes, straight out of the blue, my NVIDIA driver gets lost. Say, I'm in text console and then I run startx, it runs fine, I exit the session, do something on the console again, then run startx....and sometimesit won't start, it only reports erorrs about NVIDIA module. Once it helped to get rid of the <dri> lines in etc/security/blahblahblah.perm file but now the /dev/nvidia* files are missing. It helps every time if I reinstall the driver. But it's then happening again after some time. What's wrong?

 

I'm running MDK 10.0

For some weirdo reason, some people need to modprobe nvidia at every bootup, i.e. wherever-mdk-stores-what-to-modprobe-at-bootup scripts don't seem to work properly on a number of MDK10.0 CR systems. I have the problem myself, and it only went away when I re-compiled the kernel myself, then the NVIDIA module. No problems since.

I can confirm that this happens to me as well. It was working fine until I did an urpmi --auto-select to do a cooker update a few days ago. Since then I have to modprobe the driver at each boot.

 

Doh!
