Nvidia x86 modules submitted for 3.8.13 kernel
« on: June 15, 2014, 10:56:29 PM »
Nvidia 319.49 driver modules for 3.8.13 kernel submitted.  Package comes complete with GLX modules and Nvidia-settings GUI in one package (46MB)

nvidia-modules-3.8.13-tinycore.tcz     for x86 only  (for now, am still fixing the glx install configuration for x86_64)

Preferably use Xorg-7.7 confless if your system allows,  then install "nvidia-modules-3.8.13-tinycore.tcz" onboot and reboot.   Xorg should use the nvidia driver.

Otherwise you'll need to boot with Xorg (either confless or with an /etc/X11/xorg.conf file) then load the nvidia modules extension and run nvidia-xconfig,  save /X11/xorg.conf to your backup and install "nvidia-modules-3.8.13-tinycore.tcz" onboot then reboot.

1. boot with Xorg-7.7
2. check /etc/X11 for an xorg.conf file
  a. if found make a backup in a safe location
  b. if not found make a blank file - /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    i. sudo mkdir -p /etc/X11
    ii. sudo touch /etc/X11/xorg.conf
3. tce-load -wi nvidia-modules-3.8.13-tinycore
4. sudo nvidia-xconfig
5. exit to prompt
6. startx
7 if successful add /etc/X11/xorg.conf to backup

8. you may fine tune the xorg.conf file by opening Nvidia server settings gui,
  a. select  X server Display Configuration
  b. Save to Configuration file
  c. save new /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to your tc backup

use glxgears and/or glxinfo from xdemos.tcz  for a basic test of GLX 3D
