Help with issues regarding installation of Debian

MacbookPro4,1 Nvidia 8600M GT issues

Postby Sgt.Hiddlesworth » 2018-03-17 20:24

Hello all!

I have recently found an old MacbookPro4,1 in the basement and was hoping to breath new life into it. My goal is to have a single OS system running Debian only. So far I have tried both the official and unofficial-non-free versions of installs. I performed a clean install every time, but had the same issue. I can't get to the graphical login screen unless I force
Code: Select all
nomodeset xforcevesa
Once this is input, everything works groovy, except that (as expected) the graphics are under-par. I'm not looking for amazing, I'd just like the nvidia card to have it's proper drivers. I've tried installing the driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.106 that nvidia recommends from their website and blacklisting nouveau, but that didn't work. Then after another clean install, I tried installing the nvidia driver, blacklisting nouveau, uninstalling nouveau, and reinstalling gnome, and it would boot to the login, but soon as it got there, the GUI would encounter errors, and not let me get any farther. I've tried crawling over all kinds of forums, but most are for Ubuntu, and none have helped. Does anyone have any ideas what steps I should take? I'm not afraid to do a little more homework, just need some guidance on where to look and what to try. Thanks so much!

this would require a much mire detailed description.
did you follow the debian wiki (as you should)?
https://wiki.debian.org/NvidiaGraphicsDrivers

Then after another clean install, I tried installing the nvidia driver, blacklisting nouveau, uninstalling nouveau, and reinstalling gnome, and it would boot to the login, but soon as it got there, the GUI would encounter errors, and not let me get any farther.

what errors exactly, and define "not let me get any farther"?

debiman, Thank you for your time!

It's been a little while since I've tried, so I can't give you exact details on what I saw earlier, but I tried again just now with a clean install for you. Yes, I followed the wiki as my first course of action after booting into the desktop.

After installing the driver and the xorg configuration file, I rebooted and can no longer get into any graphical interface. When I try, the last errors to show on screen before halting are:
"Failed to start Light Display Manager"
"See 'systemctl status lightdm.service' for details."

Booting to text mode I found a couple lines in /var/log/kern.log stating:
"nvidia: loading out-of-tree module taints kernel."
"nvidia: module license 'NIVIDIA' taints kernel."
"Disabling lock debugging due to kernel taint"
"nvidia 0000:01:00.0: enabling device (0002 -> 0003)"

in /var/log/Xorg.0.log I found:
"Failed to initialize the NIVIDA GPU at PCI:1:0:0. Please check your system's kernel log for additional error messages and refer to Chapter 8: Common Problems in the README for additional information."
"Failed to initialize the NIVIDIA graphics device!"
"Failing initialization of X screen 0"
"Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration."
"Fatal server error: no screens found (EE)"

When I look up these errors, I see many suggestions on what to do (editing the grub, changing the lightdm configuration, reinstalling the GUI) but I think I'd prefer to wait on your recommendation before I mess anything else up. Please let me know if you'd like a specific file posted and I'll get it for you.

i think we would need to see that xorg.conf.

when you get to this point, do NOT reboot, but switch to another console with e.g. Ctrl-Alt-F2, login, and do what it says.
also look at the other logs you looked at in your previous posts.
also a general 'journalctl -b' might help.

OK, here's the requested info. However, the color coding got lost when I printed it to file, so here's what I saw:

The Forum wouldn't let me attach the files, so hopefully this is detailed enough for you? If you would like me to do this after a fresh install, I can do that too.

where is

???

where's that other output from?
i don't see anything pertaining to your nvidia card, maybe someone else does...

Maybe I looked it up wrong?

I booted up the computer and waited till it halted at "See 'systemctl status lightdm.service' for details." and then performed the Ctrl-Alt-F2 login. From there I output journalctl -b to text, copied that and the xorg.conf files to another computer and replied with the info from there. There is no other line in the journalctl output that mentions "lightdm".

Perhaps I need to look elsewhere?

Well that just makes a lot more sense. Sorry about that. I ran the command "systemctl --all" and these issues popped up:

of course, there were many more lines, but these ones were all the ones with marks next to them. Hope that helps!

no, it actually doesn't.
systemd tells you what to do first.
not promising it will solve hings, but it's the first step.
why don't you take it?

Ok, I'm sorry to try your patience. I'm trying to learn all this. Didn't think it'd be such a steep curve just to install.

Anyway, to revise my previous statement. I typed in
Code: Select all
systemctl status lightdm.service


and got

Code: Select all

That looks like a little more what I'm going for. I tried the "systemd" command, and it tells me that the startup finished in 113ms, but then halts. I get a blinking curser, and it doesn't do anything else.

ok, systemd didn't really help us with that one.
maybe lightdm has its own log, but i guess we're back to this:

in /var/log/Xorg.0.log I found:
Code: Select all
"Failed to initialize the NIVIDA GPU at PCI:1:0:0. Please check your system's kernel log for additional error messages and refer to Chapter 8: Common Problems in the README for additional information."
"Failed to initialize the NIVIDIA graphics device!"
"Failing initialization of X screen 0"
"Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration."
"Fatal server error: no screens found (EE)"



please post the complete Xorg.0.log (after a failed session of course).
you can also look at
Code: Select all
dmesg
lots of output! search for related (i.e. failure to initialize gpu driver) errors & warnings.

edit:
i just found this in an old askubuntu q:

> /var/log/lightdm/lightdm.log revealed that the X server exited with an error. /var/log/lightdm/x-0.org complained about different versions of the nvidia driver and the nvidia kernel module.

so more logs to look at.
i find it likely that you experience the same; in other words, something went wrong with installing the nvidia driver, maybe the wrong version, maybe you missed a step.
please retrace your steps from https://wiki.debian.org/NvidiaGraphicsDrivers

Funny story... I got a bit frustrated looking around, everyone has ideas, nothing seems to be working, so I re-installed debian to start fresh, and tried loading the current driver, in spite of it's warnings of incompatibility.

Guess what, it's working, and I have no idea why, but I ran
Code: Select all
lspci -k | grep -A 2 VGA
and it comes back as "Kernel module: nvidia"

dmesg brings up some fun warnings:

The current version of nvidia driver doesn't require an xorg.conf file according to the wiki, so I don't have one right now, but the "nvidia x server settings" app states I'm not using the nvidia X driver

Also, on a lark, I decided to try Kali on this system, because it's based off of Debian, and it boots up super easy, with no issues. It even loads up the wifi drivers and everything.

Is there something I can/should look at to make sure everything is running right?
