[SOLVED] Nvidia 64-bit vs 32-bit driver conflict

Postby Canisaur » 2012-02-14 18:38

I asked this question on the WINE forums but they told me to ask here instead:

I'm trying to get EVE Online working on WINE in Debian Wheezy. I get the following error when I try to run eve.exe:

err:d3d:WineD3D_CreateFakeGLContext Can't find a suitable iPixelFormat

I believe I've traced the problem to needing the nvidia-glx-ia32 package. However, when I try to install it, I get:

# apt-get install nvidia-glx-ia32
...
The following packages will be REMOVED:
libgl1-nvidia-glx nvidia-glx xserver-xorg-video-nvidia

...

So how can I install the Nvidia 32-bit compat libraries without removing my Nvidia xorg drivers?

Sorry, but I wasn't able to try this (nor do I remember if I tried that package already and got the same xorg package conflict) because I switched to Xubuntu after days of fiddling with Debian. I realize I was using the Testing branch, so I'm not complaining that it didn't work, but since I couldn't get it working I switched to something that did work.

So yes, thank you for your suggestion, but it came too late for me. Hopefully it helps someone else who comes here with the same problem.

I successfully simulated installing "nvidia-glx-ia32" on wheezy.
Code: Select all

Quantum, your suggestion doesn't look correct if you want the latest available Nvidia drivers (like me):

Code: Select all
$ sudo apt-get install libgl1-nvidia-glx-ia32
[sudo] password:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
  libgl1-nvidia-alternatives-ia32 nvidia-kernel-2.6.32-5-amd64
Recommended packages:
  nvidia-kernel-195.36.31
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  libgl1-nvidia-glx nvidia-glx xserver-xorg-video-nvidia
The following NEW packages will be installed:
  libgl1-nvidia-alternatives-ia32 libgl1-nvidia-glx-ia32 nvidia-kernel-2.6.32-5-amd64
0 upgraded, 3 newly installed, 3 to remove and 1 not upgraded.
Need to get 10.6 MB of archives.
After this operation, 7,324 kB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue [Y/n]?


The thing is, the packages that this removes are required for nvidia-kernel-source version 280.13-really-275.36-1~bpo60+2. Instead, it wants to replace them with nvidia packages for version 195.36.31. That's a pretty old driver set that doesn't support my GTX550 very well. Any thoughts on how best to deal with this?

TIA

Edit: Forgot to note that this is on a squeeze install with squeeze backports enabled:

Code: Select all
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ stable main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ stable main contrib non-free #Added by software-properties

deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main contrib non-free #Added by software-properties

# squeeze-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ stable-updates main
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ stable-updates main

# backports for squeeze
deb http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports squeeze-backports main contrib non-free


Never mind. I forgot to include the backports, didn't I? Sigh.
sudo apt-get install -t squeeze-backports ...
