not help, i got same error

Pity Confused

Sorry but... are you sure that devx and kernel header's versions match with kernel version?

Other, less elegant, solution could be to change Puppy flavor, you've chosen Slacko for any special reason ?

What about Precise Puppy?

Here http://shinobar.server-on.net/puppy/opt/pup5/precise/ you have a .sfs for your Nividia card.

Installing Puppy it's so easy that it's worth to try.

Hi. i select slacko because I think Will be less problem with drivers.
I got propper devx and kernel loaded on the fly and work if I want compile another nVidia drivers, just not work with that.

So, there must be something wrong with the file.
Can you check the md5sum of the file, mine it's:

21f6eb657e651a83ff4271438122b379 *NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.23-pkg1.run

just to discard that there's a mistake in the download.

Open a console in the folder where you have the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.23-pkg1.run
and type:

#md5sum NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.23-pkg1.run

it will give you a string of numbers and letters that must match exactly. If the file downloaded wrong, it's different and the string will not match.

It's just a sanity check.

[Edit] Beware that if our strings do match, that only means that we both have downloaded the same file (which may contain an error).

Galbi may have a point...its an older driver and a very new kernel on slacko... not to mention the release of xorg.

Since slacko is proving to be a problem with drivers then surely something older makes sense if it works....if you have a mx440 i assume the rest of the gear is not exactly this weeks machine.

By the way I have 2 MX4000 cards... newest I ever ran with was Slax 7 which was a pain in the butt and thats significantly older than slacko.

got same
md5sum NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.23-pkg1.run

Is not really totall over the time machine, I just put that mx 440 because I make another PC for my friend who use just email, youtube, facebook and card games like solitaire -from chrome store-

But I see later that sistem may work more smooth if will use proper drivers for nvidia.

Processor Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz
Memory 2073MB (242MB used)
Machine Type Physical machine
Operating System Slacko Puppy - 5.7.0
User Name root (root)
Date/Time Fri Aug 22 10:28:04 2014

So What is my best option, leave like it is, install puppy precise, or keep tryin Smile

Well you seem to be banging your head against a wall with slacko...I suggest something else.... there are proven pups like lucid and perhaps precise that work happily with the hardware you mention. Cutting edge gets a bit hit and miss with older hardware... I never bother with the latest distros as the chances are they will not like something I have...the hardware support window of linux is smaller than windows roughly speaking....and we are looking at 10 years+ here.

Well it does have good support here and reputation.... all pups are free to try out so testing for hardware compatibility is a pretty painless activity. I believe it has a wizard for adding the nvidia driver too... might be in quickpet.

Aha OK. thx.

I try find proper lucid puppy, are called exact lucid or name LUPU is same aswell ?


meanwhile I install puppy precise (FRUGAL) just for test, and install getnvidia, kernel and devx, than test if on precise will work.

And got same error like on slacko, than again I just tested with random linux 32 drivers I think this time for GT 8800 and again work like must.

So I think must be problem with that NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.23-pkg1.run file
EDIT: In fact I think all files for that videocard is or incompatible or corrupted, because I try even with older drivers for that card all from nividia direct, and allways got same result.


Bacause I want test again in LUCID and see where the hell is problem, you know is really depressed thing if you not shure if doin right way.

Thank you

if precise works for you then use it.
Lupu/lucid... yes sort of the same..I think the name evolved...there have been some recent updates too.

For any of those I fully expect there to be a prebuilt driver as a pet... I got one for Lucid.

The latest kernels are probably too unfriendly to build the older driver.... geeks would consider such support a waste of time.

mike

ps to save you searching here's the driver I use in lucid...

Yes right, waste of time, but Im a guy who will success or take a hammer and crush that PC Smile

Okay, on lucid I got installed like nothing, and all work, just diferent menu is problem now for me, but I think will convince my friend to migrate on lucid with sending to him link of this thread, to see what problem I got.


Ok. thank you all for support



EDIT: I cant find kernel for lucid, just to test if I can compile that famous driver here.

Sometimes the path of least resistance is the right one.....
http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet-packages-lucid/

the devx_525 seems to cover 528...no significant changes I believe and the sources for 2.6.33.2 are just above.
