'/dev/nvidia0' Input/Output error... suggested fixes

Can anyone verify that the BIOS related suggestions work and are not coincidentally set (either automatically when changing the IRQ or turning off ACPI) while troubleshooting? I have found little information that confirms any of the suggestions would work. The file permissions thing seems to be completely unfounded and never works (as noted in the article) that I could find. It would probably be a good idea if we cleaned out items that have not been verified to work. For my setup I was having this error and none of the items in the wiki nor the many file permission search results worked. -- click, them so hard 19:16, 4 March 2012 (EST)

I've added an Accuracy template, please next time add it yourself so that discussions like this are more visible. -- Kynikos 05:40, 6 March 2012 (EST)

Run a test

There is confusing paragraph saying You can run a test to see if the Xorg server will function correctly without a configuration file.. IMHO, it should be clarified what kind of test the author has in mind, an exact command would be helpful. Currently, this suggestion is simply confusing, especially to less experienced users. --Mloskot (talk) 19:52, 26 November 2012 (UTC)

nvidia-xconfig

Several of the commands which are suggested to be run with nvidia-xconfig (such as nvidia-xconfig --twinview) don't work with the current nvidia packages in the repository. I just went through setting mine up so I intend to clean up the ones that I can from my experience. Some don't seem to have a 1:1 replacement (there is a --dynamic-twinview argument now; is that the same as --twinview was?). Teh (talk) 13:10, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

Automatic re-compilation of the NVIDIA module with every update of any kernel

Is this section also (for comfort) needed when installing nvidia driver if one is using the stock kernel? Or is it only needed when installing the driver for a custom kernel? The chapter layout of the Installation chapter is maybe misleading me. --Strubbl (talk) 21:14, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

Accuracy of driver selection

A thread on the forums revealed that nvidia is more conservative in their suggestion than needed and checking their website tells you to use an older driver (nvidia-340xx) while the latest 'nvidia' one will do just fine. Gusar suggested the removal of the second point in the 'Installing' section. Do we want to get rid of this potentially useful, although somewhat confusing info? -- Karol (talk) 02:52, 15 November 2014 (UTC)

Well, I've rewritten the second point to make it clearer, I hope I got it correctly. However steps 2 and 3 there should probably merged into one, because they deal with the same problem, i.e. finding the correct driver to install. Maybe we could use a table? (just brainstorming). -- Kynikos (talk) 03:47, 16 November 2014 (UTC)

Screen Tearing

There is currently no link to the section about how to fix screen tearing issues with nvidia cards in the main nvidia wiki article. It is included on the page for tips and tricks but this is a bit unclear and difficult to find as fixing an issue may not be seen as a "tip and trick". I would recommend that this Screen Tearing Issues section be moved to the main page or at least a link to it added there. TheChickenMan (talk) 21:42, 25 May 2016 (UTC)

Moved to NVIDIA/Troubleshooting, closing. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 10:08, 28 May 2016 (UTC)
