    Question NVIDIA Graphics Driver Extraction failed

    Hi,

    I have a 86x64 architecture and opensuse 13.1, I have downloaded NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86_64 343.22, but the sh extraction command failed with this message:


    sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-343.22.run
    Verifying archive integrity... OK
    Uncompressing NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86_64 343.22........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................Extraction failed.

    Signal caught, cleaning up


    How can I fix it ?

    Ok Why not get it from the repositories??

    Also are you sure that you have
    1) A NVIDIA card. If so which one
    2) that the system is not an Optimus (Intel+NVIDIA GPU)
    3) you have the other things needed to actually install this way this would include the kernel source and the gcc complier
    4) you run the files as root??

    Maybe just use the one click install

    My system is:

    Architecture x86-64
    OS Opensuse 13.1, kernel version is 3.11
    processor 4xIntel(R) Core(TM) i7-4500U CPU @ 1.80GHz
    graphics card Intel VGA compatible controller
    graphics card nVidia 3D controller


    It seems to be an Optimus (Intel+NVIDIA GPU).

    My trouble is with FreeCAD if I launch it, my machine gives this output:

    studio@linux:/opt/FreeCAD/bin> ls
    FreeCAD FreeCADCmd
    studio@linux:/opt/FreeCAD/bin> FreeCAD
    FreeCAD 0.15, Libs: 0.15R3793 (Git)

    ok You have an optimus based graphic system Intel+NVIDIA. you can not use the regular NVIDA driver on such a system please first uninstall any NVIDA drivers you may have installed then go here and follow the instructions exactly!!!!

    https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_Bumblebee

    This will install bumblebee and also a special version of the NVIDIA driver. this should correct your problems.

    That happened to me, last year. It turned out to be because there was not enough free space in "/tmp"
    openSUSE Leap 15.1; KDE Plasma 5;

    How can I increase free space in /tmp ?

    I have launched df -h and the output is:

    df -h
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda3 20G 18G 315M 99% /
    devtmpfs 5,9G 16K 5,9G 1% /dev
    tmpfs 5,9G 88K 5,9G 1% /dev/shm
    tmpfs 5,9G 5,5M 5,9G 1% /run
    tmpfs 5,9G 0 5,9G 0% /sys/fs/cgroup
    tmpfs 5,9G 5,5M 5,9G 1% /var/run
    tmpfs 5,9G 5,5M 5,9G 1% /var/lock

    Well /tmp should be cleared with a reboot. If not you can clear it by booting to a live media and deleting all in /tmp

    Note it is not exactly clear the /tmp it where the problem is. It maybe that you have accumulated large log files. If you have errors that you don't attend to this can build up to take a lot of space. Unless you have installed every Linux program you run into or are using large databases 20 gig should be plenty of space (the size of root as reported)

    So look in /var/log and /var/tmp and /run/log and see if you have any huge log files hanging around. Note if you do you should investigate what they ssay since it indicates a recuring problem. Use less filename.log to view since the files are usually too big to view in an editor.

    I have checked and I don't have large log files.

    How can I increase space in the partition where /tmp is ?

    My partitions are:

    linux:/usr/local/man # fdisk -l

    Disk /dev/sda: 750.2 GB, 750156374016 bytes, 1465149168 sectors
    Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 4096 bytes
    I/O size (minimum/optimal): 4096 bytes / 4096 bytes
    Disk label type: dos
    Disk identifier: 0x85db5f28

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sda1 * 2048 206847 102400 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
    /dev/sda2 206848 512002047 255897600 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
    /dev/sda3 512002048 552962047 20480000 6 FAT16

    Well a problem is I don't see one Linux file system listed in that list. Is there another drive? Where exactly is Linux installed?
