PostPosted: Tue 19 Aug 2014, 06:49    Post subject:  nvidia geforce mx 440 driver ?  

Hi. I try compile this drivers from nvidia page, use devx and kernel for my slacko 5.7.0 and all go ok. but on the end I got problem, got error some files missing.

Anyway is some allready compiled .pet files availible ?

Must do that because that compaq d500 or d505 is slow with onboard graphic, and that 3D video upgrade vizard not work, okay work but say is nothing new for you "something like that"

Thank you

well that suggests the kernel sources are not loaded for some reason .... they should be in /usr/src........ and links in /lib/modules/{version} should point there. Perhaps tell us what the sources are called to make sure they are correct.

Otherwise you may find floating around a prebuilt 96.xx.xx driver for that particular puppy anyway which makes life much easier...then you only have to fight with stopping the nouveau driver loading Very Happy

Hi. aha so better find premade pet or sfs than suffer my head Smile

I try with this driver http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/48996/en-us

I find this nvidia-96.43.19-k2.6.37.6-s.pet
and

nvidia-96.43.20-k3.1.10-slacko_4gx3-s.pet

I thin last must be ok ?

Must be allmost shure, because (I persuaded him) this guy who own that computer migrate to slacko just because viruses and worm's .etc from win xp

So Is not good for my reputation if he stuck on the first day LOL


Okay I will install this with teamviewer and how I can unload that noveau on the start ?

another thing, this guy use his big screen TV for monitor, and he say I allmost lost mouse pointer every time, So Is possible make mouse pointer bigger and change color too ?

Thank you.

3.10.32
this seems to be your kernel version so neither of those pets will work it seems.

You can add nice mouse pointers .... a forum search should bring some results..

On both issues someone else might come in with help too but you may find it better to make fresh posts for both in the 'beginners' section

I think must find another link for that driver, not from nvidia cuz that file must be fu**** I try DL few times and same happen every time.


I think (hope) that is my problem.

How are you downloading the problematic file?

Sometimes I've found that the browser's download manager may be problematic, so in those cases I open a console to use wget and paste the link to the file.

Saludos.
