I have been struggling with this issue for the last 2 nites :
I own a Macbook Pro embedding a GT330M nvidia graphics card, on which I installed a dual boot MacOSX/Linux Debian. Everything worked flawlessly till I had to upgrade my MacOSX to Maverick …
Upgrading MacOS X forced me to upgrade my kernel to a more recent version (more than 3.3) or else the new EFI firmware would cause the kernel to stall at bootup. I did that, and then obviously, I had to re-install the nvidia driver … which I thought would be as straightforward as it has been for me the last 8 years … (on other systems as well).
I downloaded and installed the 331.38 x86_64 version, and I ran into a few issues :
- First I was unable to build with CUDA support (not a big deal for me, so I simply deactivated it),
- Second after installation, and Xorg restart, I get a Kernel Oops, and a black screen (my machine still respond to the network, so luckily I could debug it from another machine via ssh).
I tried several kernel versions :
- 3.4.77 : after installation, the graphics card is not detected by the nvidia driver => no luck
- 3.12.1 : kernel oops, black screen, can’t make it work
- 3.12.8 : kernel oops, black screen, can’t make it work either
nouveau is blacklisted off course, (that was the first thing I checked).
Here is the stack trace printed in my message log

This is the first time in a very very long while I have no idea of how to make it work … I googled almost any keyword I could think of, and read this forum as well, but I could not quite get anything close to what I am experiencing today.
I had to revert temporary to the nouveau driver, since I have no solution at the moment, and this is quite a big problem for me, as this part of my job involves 3D work … For now, it will have to wait for next week, but still, I have absolutely no lead here, if anybody could give me a pointer or a workaround to make it work, I would be more than happy.
