I own a HP Pavilion dv2025nr which has a NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 card. I installed Debian Wheezy which currently installs GNOME 3. I need to install nvidia-glx in order to use my card at full potential.
However, after installing the nvidia-glx, removing the xserver-xorg-video-nouveau package the X won't start. It keeps black, and if I manage to go to tty, I see several lines of "Kill proccess PID (name): Out of memory..."; that explains why the HDD led is constantly on.
According to http://www.nvidia.com/object/IO_32667.html my card is NOT a legacy card, so it should work.
My system is Debian Wheezy:
manu@pavla:~$ uname -a Linux pavla 3.0.0-1-686-pae #1 SMP Sat Aug 27 16:41:03 UTC 2011 i686 GNU/Linux
Installed NVIDIA related packages:
manu@pavla:~$ aptitude search ~i~dnvidia i A glx-alternative-nvidia i A libgl1-nvidia-alternatives i A libgl1-nvidia-glx i A libglx-nvidia-alternatives i libvdpau1 i nvidia-alternative i nvidia-detect i nvidia-glx i A nvidia-installer-cleanup i A nvidia-kernel-common i A nvidia-kernel-dkms i A nvidia-support i A nvidia-vdpau-driver i A xserver-xorg-video-nvidia
Best regards, Manuel.
