devices wont start automatically


Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I'm using nvidia driver 53.36 (latest)

I installed and it was running ok. And then with no reason mandrake do not starts X anymore. It says "could not found any screen". I checked /etc/X11/XFREE86-Config-4 file and everything is ok. What could be happening?


Im using mdk 10 Official


thanks for any help

I remember that when facing the same situation as described by aze I inserted nvidia in /etc/modprobe.preload and the problem was solved:

[william@poseidon william]$ cat /etc/modprobe.preload 
# /etc/modprobe.preload: kernel modules to load at boot time.
# This file should contain the names of kernel modules that are
# to be loaded at boot time, one per line.  Comments begin with
# a `#', and everything on the line after them are ignored.
# this file is for module-init-tools (kernel 2.5 and above) ONLY
# for old kernel use /etc/modules

I couldn't see any alias /dev/nvidia* nvidia in my /etc/modprobe.conf.

but the driver seems to be working properly:

[william@poseidon william]$ cat /etc/modprobe.conf
alias ieee1394-controller ohci1394
alias eth0 eepro100
alias sound-slot-0 snd-usb-audio
options snd-intel8x0 enable=1
options NVdriver NVreg_EnableAGPSBA=0 NVreg_EnableAGPFW=1
install scsi_hostadapter /sbin/modprobe usb-storage; /sbin/modprobe imm; /sbin/modprobe ppa; /bin/true
install snd-intel8x0 /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install snd-intel8x0 && { /sbin/modprobe snd-pcm-oss; /bin/true; }
install snd-usb-audio /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install snd-usb-audio && { /sbin/modprobe snd-pcm-oss; /bin/true; }
install usb-interface /sbin/modprobe usb-uhci; /sbin/modprobe ehci-hcd; /bin/true
remove snd-intel8x0 { /sbin/modprobe -r snd-pcm-oss; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --first-time --ignore-remove snd-intel8x0
remove snd-usb-audio { /sbin/modprobe -r snd-pcm-oss; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --first-time --ignore-remove snd-usb-audio

Legal esse avatar, aze!!

Hey guys!

Everytime I start my pc i have that X could not be started due to the issue above.

I added the line at /etc/modprobe.conf:


alias /dev/nvidia* nvidia
alias eth0 via-rhine
alias sound-slot-0 snd-emu10k1
install snd-emu10k1 /sbin/modprobe --first-time --ignore-install snd-emu10k1 && { /sbin/modprobe snd-pcm-oss; /bin/true; }
install usb-interface /sbin/modprobe usb-uhci; /sbin/modprobe ehci-hcd; /bin/true
remove snd-emu10k1 { /sbin/modprobe -r snd-pcm-oss; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --first-time --ignore-remove snd-emu10k1

but when I restart the computer the line alias /dev/nvidia* nvidia is removed from that conf file and the I need to make all the poccess manually.


Also, my eth0 has the same problem!!

what is going on?

It's a bad bug. I have the same problem everytime I do anything with MCC, including installing updateas! If you re-run the nvidia installer, it fixes that. I don't know about the ethernet.
