I'm suffering from repeated crashes in my Eclipse IDE, which is java. Restarting
it is slow and losing work is never much fun anyway, but I thought I'd find a
solution until now.
I have 4 approaches to the problem:
- upgrade java (done that, now on the latest release of JDK 1.5, 1.5.0_16)
- upgrade Eclipse (worst approach, might require me to do a dev environment
- upgrade Etch to latest packages (done that)
- upgrade the nvidia driver (trying and failing).
I'm using "nv", so I thought I'd try the proprietary nvidia driver.
Following any of the methods on http://wiki.debian.org/NvidiaGraphicsDrivers
just leads me down the same path to the point where I find "nvidia.ko failed to
build" in the logs.
I'm using the stock kernel 2.6.26-bpo.1-686 from apt, and trying to get the
nvidia-glx-legacy nvidia-kernel-common nvidia-kernel-legacy-2.6-686 packages
from non-free to install, but using the instruction:
m-a auto-install nvidia
leads to the error "nvidia.ko failed build", as I mentioned above.
The other methods outlined on the wiki fail similarly.
The executable download directly from nvidia.com has the same problem.
Is this whole thing with the proprietary driver a bad idea or just something
that won't work until I get lenny?
