Nvidia Module/Kernel

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello, after updating my Mandriva 2008 to 2008.1, using urpmi --auto-select -auto, it updated many of the files, then crashed Xserver and then rebooted to a funky looking tty terminal mode. Logged back in, tried to restart Xserver, however I get the error message:

(EE) NVIDIA(0):Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0): ***Aborting***

Then the error that it can not find a Xserver to connect to and is giving up.

Is there a terminal command that would allow me to update the Nvidia module?
I have tried using urpmi to update, however it says "-bash: urpmi: command not found".

Need some help here.

Thanks

first of all, did you execute "urpmi.update -a" and "urpmi kernel"? If yes, and that did't help you can do the following:
a:
1. in terminal open links (or lynx, elinks), go tot nvidia.com and download the latest driver
2. install them as usually
b:
1. edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf to disable all compiz-related (if there are such) features
2. change the video driver from "nvidia" to "nv"
3. start your DE, go to nvidia.com...
