nvidia 8400m gs 256 mb
I installed the nvidia beta driver 180.xx . Then i installed mesa lib i.e libgl1-mesa-dev.deb . Everything worked and I got a simple opengl program working. Even glxgears was giving an output of 2000 fps.
i then wanted to install nvidia’s cuda development files. The driver version 185.18.08.
After I did that, my X crashed! On reboot it gave an option to run in ‘low graphics mode’.
I reconfigured the xorg.conf to use ‘nv’.
I reinstalled nvidia driver using envyng but ‘glxgears’ is not working!
Xlib: Extension “GLX” missing on display “:0.0”
GLX failure: couldn’t get an RGB, Double-buffered visual
i’m unable to compile opengl programs!
Next i tried the nvidia driver 185.18.04.
My X crashed again!
& suggest the most compatible version of ubuntu i must use for running cuda n mesa3d dev libraries.
