Error with Nvida drivers installation ?

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -


I have installed the NVIDIA drivers manually and there is a minor problem as with the single click as everything works fine and I am getting the error whenever I run Picasa and the following error message after a reboot as dev.nvidia0 or /dev/nvidiact1 are not accessible and if these files are not accessible then Picasa will be crashed.

Any solution will be helpful.

Thank You.

dev/nvidia0 or /dev/nvidiadirect1 are not accessable, Picasa will crash if these files are not accessable. To fix this, as root, please run:

Chomd 666 dev/nvidia0 /dev/nvidiadirect1

And then restart this program.

First prepare the kernel Code:

  • cd /usr/src/linux
  • cp -rf include/generated/* include/linux/
When download your driver from NVIDIA:
Log out and run the following command Code:
  • sh nvidiafilenamer083rt

I think the screenshot you attached in your post is no longer available. I can’t see the attached image. Anyway, if this is the first time that this happens, try restarting your computer then try it again. See if you will get the same error with Picasa after rebooting. If this problem happened after installing Picasa then try reinstalling the program.

Uninstall Picasa then restart your computer when asked. After booting, check your computer for any possible errors. Use a disk utility application to check the system. For a much thorough diagnostic test on your system, use a disk utility application like Norton Utilities. Install the application again then see if this fixes the problem. You may also try reinstalling your NVIDIA graphics accelerator since the error has something to do with the video card. Update your video card’s drivers if it’s possible.
