hello, i have a problem with 310.44 driver on my ASUS laptop, with GT335M.
i installed 310.44 32-bit driver on centos 6.4 (32-bit). here are my steps:
[…@root]$ yum install -y kernel-devel gcc make binutils
to prepare minimal soft requirements(these softs are the minimal requirements from the README.txt from 310.44 driver).
after install basic soft, download the 310.44 driver(linux 32-bit) and save it in /home/
blacklist the nouveau driver, modify /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf ,add “blacklist nouveau”
rebuild initramfs image, by command:
[…@root] mv /boot/initramfs-(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-(uname -r).img.bak [..@root] dracut -v /boot/initramfs-(uname -r).img (uname -r)
modify /etc/inittab, change the contents “id:5:initdefault” into “id:3:initdefault” to start centos in character mode.
after start centos in character mode, use command:
[…@root]$ lsmod | grep mouveau
to confirm that nouveau is not running.
use command :
[…@root] chmod 751 nvidia*.run [..@root] ./nvidia*.run -kernel-source-path=/usr/src/kernels/(…i can’t remember it…)/
and i install it without any problems.
i use the default .conf file created by the installing program. and the installing program save my old .conf file as well.
reboot centos, and i still get into the character mode. i use command :
[…@root] lsmod | grep nouveau without any output, which means the nouveau driver is not working, and it's correct. then, i use command: [..@root] lsmod | grep nvidia
with output that shows there are nvidia driver running(i can’t remember the outputs, but it can be sure that outputs contains the key words “nvidia”)
then, i use command:
[…@root]$ init 5
and then centos can’t open the graphic mode…the screen is black without any responds.
i force to restart centos, and use “linux single” to log in centos, then ,i found:
Fatal: no screens found
in Xorg.0.log file!!!
besides, the xorg.conf file generated by installing program contains 10 screens in .xonf file…
how can i install nvidia offical driver on centos 6.3/6.4 (32-bit)?
thanks for your patient!!!
