    4. One more note:

      Nov 29 18:34:40 JanekFedora setroubleshoot: SELinux is preventing /opt/google/chrome/chrome from execmod access on the file /opt/google/chrome/libffmpegsumo.so. For complete SELinux messages. run sealert -l bcd08908-bbc5-4522-a776-d1635b92f64c

      also appears everytime i have a fresh installation of Linux. Then all i have to do is open selinux and copy in commands that they give to prevent the “error”. I am not sure what it does.

      Reply
      • Hi Janek,

        And thanks for your logs. :)

        Looks like that the NVIDIA libGL (/usr/lib/nvidia/libGL.so.1) cause an instant crash. Try to start Google Chrome with mesa libGL using following command on command line:

        
        LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libGL.so.1 google-chrome
        

        Is it working then? :)

        And for SELinux problem you can try create and install SELinux local policy module, with following commands (as root):

        
        grep chrome /var/log/audit/audit.log | audit2allow -M chrome-libffmpegsumo
        
        semodule -i chrome-libffmpegsumo.pp
        

        Or alternatively you can try to run restrecon command whole /opt directory (as root):

        
        restorecon -R -v /opt

        • WOW! Yes it does! That is very impressive bug-tracking :) Thank You! Also could you show me which line pointed you to the solution? That would be a very good lesson as i like to program for linux too :)
          And the selinux wasn’t a problem – it just used to pop up when the google chrome was started but it pointed me to a solution. Thank You again I will surely follow your upcoming tutorials :)

          Reply
          • Avesome! :) Thanks! :) You are welcome! :)

            Things which pointed to the solution:
            1. You did know exactly that the problem exists just with the nVidia drivers and not the nouveau drivers
            2. Process killed by signal 11 (SIGSEGV) refers normally some glibc problems
            3. Your dmesg output rows revealed reason finally

            
            chrome[3272]: segfault at 48ad6315 ip 0034bdb4 sp b288cbe0 error 6 in ld-2.14.90.so[33f000+21000]
            

            Red Hat Bugzilla is also good tool to find some reusable information… :)

            Btw. if you want make this way to start Google Chrome more permanent, then you could do custom launcher for Google Chrome…

            First create example gchrome file under /usr/bin (as root):

            
            touch /usr/bin/gchrome
            chmod 755 /usr/bin/gchrome
            

            Open /usr/bin/gchrome file with your favorite editor and paste following content to file (as root):

            
            ## Paste following content to file ##
            #!/bin/sh
            export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libGL.so.1
             
            /usr/bin/google-chrome $*
            

            Then when you run gchrome instead of google-chrome your browser should start normally…

            Then you could also create gchrome.desktop launcher to get graphical launcher also.

            Create /usr/share/applications/gchrome.desktop file with your favorite editor and paste following content to it (as root):

            
            [Desktop Entry]
            Name=Google Chrome
            GenericName=Web Browser
            Comment=Working Google Chrome
            Exec=/usr/bin/gchrome
            Terminal=false
            Icon=google-chrome
            Type=Application
            Categories=Network;WebBrowser;
            MimeType=text/html;text/xml;application/xhtml_xml;x-scheme-handler/http;x-scheme-handler/https;x-scheme-handler/ftp;
            

            This should also work after Google Chrome updates. I have not tested these, but I guess these might work… :D Please let me know, if these not work?

            • Yeah the script you sent works and it creates a working shortcut in my menu but everytime I run google chrome, it asks if I want to set it as default. I click default but after closing the browser it still does that. Do you know how to force it to be the default. Thanks for all your help by the way :)

                • Sorry i think i forgot to write that i use KDE therefore i can’t even locate activities. I went to Launcher > System settings > Default Applications > Web Browser > and chose google chrome but that still doesn’t achieve the goal.

                  Reply
                  • Ok, then try following:
                    1. Set chrome to be Default browser in “Default applications” (as you did)
                    2. Ignore Google Chrome question for setting default browser (click “Don’t ask again” if this comes up).
                    3. Go to System settings -> Select Advanced tab -> Select File associations, find HTML and move Google Chrome to top of the list.

    5. My Asus N53SV-XV1 boots with nouveau driver. Resolution is okay at 1920×1080 LVSD1. However, I’d prefer if nvidia drivers worked. They don’t. First I tried “yum install kmod-nvidia”. It installed along with the other three dependencies. On reboot, the balloon appeared, the fedora symbol appeared in the balloon, and then I was dumped into text mode where I could start a terminal session. I checked /etc/modprobe.d to make sure nouveau was blacklisted. It was. “lsmod | grep nouveau” yielded nothing. I verified that the revision level of the kernel matched that of the newly-installed kmod-nvidia.

      lsmod | grep nvidia yielded two lines:
      nvidia 12112133 0
      i2c_core 25728 7
      nvidia,videodev,i2c_i801,i915,drm_kms_helper,drm,i2c_algo_bit

      Looking in /var/log/Xorg.0.log, one sees that no screens are found.

      I tried installing akmod-nvidia on top of the kmod-nvidia install, and it failed. Then I tried removing both (10 files total), and installing just akmod-nvidia. It failed as well.

      It looks like my Asus machine does not like the nVidia drivers. What else should I try?

      • With old version of bumblebee, optimus in fedora 16 64 bit is ok.
        My notebook is asus N53SV with nvidia 540M
        1) Download old version bumblebee from https://github.com/MrMEEE/bumblebee/commits/master
        2)install VirtualGl 2.2.90 rpm from:
        http://www.virtualgl.org/Downloads/VirtualGL
        3) blacklist nouveau in /etc/blacklist.conf
        4) move old initramfs
        mv /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r)-nouveau.img
        5) recreate initramfs without nouveau
        dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)
        6) restart pc
        7) install bumblebee
        Now optimus is ok
        $ glxgears
        301 frames in 5.0 seconds = 60.058 FPS
        $ optirun64 glxgears

          • Hi JR, for suspend/hibernate with bumblebee in Fedora 16 a quick workaround to this issue I used to do, is to add a pm-utils file that kills the daemon at suspend/hibernate and reenables it at wakeup with nvidia module:

            For example /etc/pm/sleep.d/10_bumblebee

            
            #!/bin/sh
            
            case "$1" in
              hibernate|suspend)
                systemctl stop bumblebee.service
                rmmod nvidia
                ;;
              thaw|resume)
                modprobe nvidia
                systemctl start bumblebee.service
                ;;
              *) exit
                 ;;
            esac
            

            And don’t forget to give execution permission to that file.

      When I saw two VGA lines, I modified nvidia-xorg.conf and xorg.conf to add a line in the device section:
      BusID “PCI:01:00:0”
      When that didn’t work, I changed the final colon to dot. That did not work, either.

      • If your computer uses NVIDIA Optimus Technology and Intel Card cannot be totally disabled, then nVidia drivers it might be very hard to get working.

        On this page you can find some discussion about NVIDIA Optimus here and same discussion continues here. I’m not sure did Antoine get this working, but I can recommend you too to try VGA Switcheroo or Bumblebee Project. I have heard some success stories with those.

        More info about VGA Switcheroo found here:
        Fedora – VGA Switcheroo
        Gentoo Wiki – VGA Switcheroo
        Ubuntu – VGA Switcheroo

        More info about Bumblebee Project found from here. Bumblebee Project try to achieve something similar, as the nVidia hybrid drivers for Windows.

        Please, let me know if you could get it working? :)

          So any older version of the driver can be used with Kernel 3.1.x ?

          And I had already tried that method, but setup fails, it tells me to check /var/log/nvidia-installer.log,

          Can I get a rpm for 173 version anywhere?

            • Thanks, so this is what I should do:-

              1. No need to update kernel, rpmfusion repo is already added in my list.

              2. Execute the rpm file.

              3. Disable nouveau drivers from kernel initramfs (like you mentioned here).

              4. Reboot.

              Correct?

      but i need to get an nvidia driver working for a 3d package im using.

      Running the NVidia installation shell script for 96.43.2? resulted in the same problem.

      • Hi Steve,

        I don’t know is nVidia legacy drivers (96.43.xx) really compatible with 3.1 kernel and can’t find any RPM builds for PAE-kernel. Some builds for i386 and x86_64 kernels found here, but I don’t have any idea is those working at all.

        Reply
        • Hey JR, Thanks for the lead. Im willing to give this a shot before reverting to an older os. But I could use a bit of a walk through if you don’t mind.

          The instructions there suggest:

          nvidia-graphics-legacy-96xx Install Howto

          1. Download the latest atrpms-repo rpm from

          http://dl.atrpms.net/f16-i386/atrpms/stable/

          – This one looks about right? Are there others there i need?
          nvidia-graphics96.43.20-kmdl-3.1.4-1.fc16.i686.PAE-96.43.20-106.fc16.i686.rpm

          – what do i do with it when i download it?

          2. Install atrpms-repo rpm:

          # rpm -Uvh atrpms-repo*rpm

          3. Install nvidia-graphics-legacy-96xx rpm package:

          # yum install nvidia-graphics-legacy-96xx

          – do i just need to run the above two commands as is?

          Reply
          • Hello again Steve,

            Yes your method looks good.

    12. I tried to follow your guild and I was able to install the driver on my computer (Lenovo Y470, GeForce 550M) on the latest Fedora16. However, once I reboot the machine, I’ve got error with the XServer and since then, I can’t start the Xserver anymore.

      I have try other methods:
      e.g. install kernel-devel and then point the path /usr/src/kernel/xxxxx.fc16 to the official driver installer

      still, the same result appear. Will you have any idea? Thank you very much, I have been working on it for days now and it’s kinda frustrating…

It helped me to install the latest nVidia driver, however, I can’t start the X server after the installation. Reboot doesn’t help either. Below is the log that I’ve got from the command startx

            Could you post output of following command:

            
            lspci |grep -i VGA

              The output of that command is
              VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)

              VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Device 0df6

              • You could also check that is it possible to turn Intel Graphics / Optimus off in the BIOS under video on your Lenovo Y470?

                If not (or if you want use both cards) then use Viger guides, for Bumblebee. :)

            Hi Sam, the problem is Xorg . This reload intel video driver. Delete xorg.conf in /etc/X11 and Xserver return ok (but no acceleration with nvidia driver). I had this error “no screen found”, but the solution,
            for fedora 16 with optimus tecnology and geforce 540M, was bumblebee (old version, not bumblebee-project). View above procedure that I wrote maybe you can help.

            • Hi, Viger,

              By deleting the xorg.conf file, I can start up the Xserver again. Thank you very much. I will see what will happen after I install the bumblebee.

              Reply
            • Thanks again Viger, you have very valuable knowledge! :)

              If you have time, could you post your Bumblebee guide to If Not True Then False forums? Best place is under Fedora / CentOS / Red Hat (RHEL) board. I instruct all of the NVIDIA Optimus users to use your guide and add link to this post of course. :)

              On forums you could easily modify your guide later, format your command line commands with tags, like [code=bash]yum install something[/code], add links and so on. :)

            • Dear Viger,

              By doing what you posted above, with that bumblebee I was able to install the driver without any problems. A big thanks to you!!

    13. I have an old pci FX5500, and can’t get this, or any of the other instructions I’ve found on the web to work. It continues to load the vesa driver. If I change xorg-conf file, it hangs on bootup.

      • Hello Dennis,

        290.xx is not compatible with your GeForce FX 5500 card, that’s why this guide is not working. Only way to get it work is use older 173.14.xx nVidia drivers.

        For more info about 173.14.xx nVidia drivers on Fedora 16 check this discussion, this comment and .

    14. Thanks JR. I have successfully installed the nVidia driver for my 9600mgs with this guide. The method to uninstall it is also effective. By the way, do you mind if I translate it into a Chinese version ?

      • Hi Arthur,

        You’re welcome! Nice to hear that you got it working! :)

        Feel free to translate this into Chinese…and if you want, you could of course link back to this post. :)

        Reply
        • Now the Chinese version has been published, you can see it here. :)
