 :( Unfortunately the nvidia installer version that i need (96.43.xx) isn't compatible with kernel>2.6. The possibility exists but I read other threads in wich users do not reccomend to proceed because the possibility to mess up the system is very high.

Indeed after installing kernel-src the nvidia continue to says error over error related to path of include *.h missing files...
So I decided to re-enable nouveau and put my soul in peace.

Hi bruraschi,
 Open Gslapt
 Click Edit, then select Preferences
 Click on the Excludes tab
 Select kernel-src to highlight it, then click the Remove button

Repeat for anything in the Excludes that you wish to be removed.
 Click OK button when finished

 I usualy restart Gslapt after that point, then update it. Then you may wish to search "kernel-src" and find the apropriate kernel source for your installed kernel.

What kernel version is installed? To answer this, you can open a terminal and command "uname -a". Type Exit to close terminal.

Hope this helps you to solve.

Hi, i have an old pc with a geforce 2 mx400 graphic card, i want to install the nvidia proprietary graphics for better "performance". I've already disable nouveau driver by comment out it as discovered in topic but now after relaunching the nvidia installer a new error appears: the kernel source is missing. In the slapt package manager all kernel source are marked as "excluded".

How can i solve to proceed with the installation of the nvidia driver?

How did you start the mysql daemon?  You should have chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.mysqld and then /etc/rc.d/rc.mysqld start

I finally am back to trying to get mysqld working.  I am in 7.2 STD B1.1 built on Dec-20-2016.
The data directory is /home/mysql which is owned by mysql.
root:# mysqld --user=mysql
[ERROR] Can't open the mysql.plugin table. Please run mysql_upgrade to create it.
[ERROR] Fatal error: Can't open and lock privilege tables: Table 'mysql.user' doesn't exist
2017-05-15T19:56:27.504478Z 0 [ERROR] Aborting
I can't run mysql_upgrade as mysqld isn't running!
I have googled mysql.user but the best I can find is to add a user.
Any suggestions?

I am new to vector linux, but not new to linux (mint, ubuntu based..).
I just installed a vector linux (latest release I found, probably ver 7). I can't make it work the printer canon PIXMA MG2950.
I tried to configure CUPS, I tried with the drivers for similar models (the ones included already in vector).. I get no error, just the printer is not starting or printing anything. In the print queue I can see that the document or text was printed (job completed) but the printer just doesn't move.
Could you pls help me? I don't need advanced features, just basic printing.
Thanks a lot

Thanks for the reply. VESA did nothing so I played around and managed to break it (touchpad and keyboard stopped responding). I'm too busy for the next few days so I'll come back to it in a while.
