10.04 - Help, my NVIDIA drivers are completely broken

23

  • Yang

    I'm on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and everything was fine up till about two hours ago, since when I've spent all my time trying to make things work again. I was trying to install the latest drivers from the NVIDIA website, v285.05.09 (since I'm currently using the latest drivers available in Ubuntu, nvidia-current v195.36.24, yet WebGL doesn't work in either Chrome or Firefox, and they always suggest that I try the latest driver versions).

    But after installing this and rebooting, X starts with an error, prompting me to run in reduced graphics mode and/or restore my graphics settings. When I checked /var/log/kern.log I saw:

    NVRM: API mismatch: the client has the version 285.05.09, but
    NVRM: this kernel module has the version 195.36.24.  Please
    NVRM: make sure that this kernel module and all NVIDIA driver
    NVRM: components have the same version.
    

    My questions has two parts:

    1. How do I actually make these latest NVIDIA drivers work?

    2. If I try this out and it doesn't work...how do I roll back what I had before? Here's what I tried, all to no avail:

      • picking the restore graphics settings option in the initial error prompt from X

      • under Administration > Hardware Drivers, I see that the "NVIDIA (current)" option is already chosen/active, so I can't do anything here

      • ran sudo dpkg-reconfigure nvidia-current

    Update 1: Some additional info:

    Update 2: Gyaaah! I tried uninstalling my current drivers, rebooting, and installing the new drivers, but the drivers still aren't working. I still have to run X in reduced graphics mode, though now my resolution is no longer ridiculously low. Checking /var/log/kern.log for any lines mentioning "nouveau" or "NV":

    I tried uninstalling xserver-xorg-video-nouveau (and hence xserver-xorg-video-all), but that didn't do anything.

    Here's all I have left installed:

    You needed to deactivate the drivers under additional drivers prior to instal the new ones. Go to the additional drivers application, deactivate the nvidia current drivers, reboot and install the drivers from the nvidia site as you did before.

    Have you tried sudo nvidia-xconfig?

    Note: This isn't working for me on a fresh 11.04 install. I'm having the problem discussed at this Ubuntu Forum post It's not clear to me if you're having the same problem.
