I'm running R6.02 and want to replace my 6200 with an 8400GS for VDPAU support.

I tried just replacing the card, but X won't start. It's stuck on the LinHES loading screen at 100%.

Do I need to upgrade video drivers?
I tried "sudo pacman -Sy nvidia", but get an error...

Code:
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
nvidia-utils: /usr/lib/libXvMCNVIDIA_dynamic.so.1 exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.


Is this the correct update method? Can I just delete this conflicting file?

You're already using that package if the nvidia-utils is giving errors. Dunno how to proceed for sure. I have some ideas, but I don't wanna roach your system worse, so unless you insist, I'll keep them to myself. Perhaps someone else will respond who knows.

Awsome Cecil!
Thank you.

I had some issues with stuttering playback with the "high quality VDPAU" playback profile. But I created my own with a different deinterlacing method.

Now I running about 10-15% cpu utilization during HD playback.

After some playing around, it seems that "VDPAU Slim" profile works great for me.

That was gonna be my suggestion, but using the force switch can be dangerous.

Quick question, after you do a pacman -Syf nvidia, what do you need to do to install VDPAU (assuming you have replaced your video card)?

I'm not sure if it was installed before (i.e. already installed) or after I ran this command. But all I had to do was enable one of the VDPAU playback profiles to get it to work.

UPDATE: see bottom for new information and fix.

Perhaps I should start a new thread, but my problem is nearly identical to this one. Unfortunately the solution here did not solve it.

When I try the pacman -Sfy nvidia I get:

Code:
:: nvidia-utils conflicts with nvidia-96xx-utils. Remove nvidia-96xx-utils? [Y/n] Y
:: nvidia conflicts with nvidia-96xx. Remove nvidia-96xx? [Y/n] Y
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: vdpinfo-96xx: requires nvidia-96xx-utils
:: vdpinfo-96xx: requires nvidia-96xx


I've tried answering both "Y" or "n" on different attempts, with no difference. Looking in the Xorg.0.log file I see this:

Code:
Failed to initialeze the NVIDIA graphics device PCI:1:0:0.
  Please see the COMMON PROBLEMS section of the README for
  additional information.
Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphhics device!
  *** Aborting ***
UnloadModule: "nvidia"
UnloadModule: "fb"
Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

Fatal server error:
no screen found.


If I put the old card back in, it works fine. Anyone have a clue on what I need to do in order to switch cards????
Is there a documented method for changing video cards??

Here are some details of the cards I'm trying to switching. 6600GT -> 8600
The rest of my system information is in my signature except for the fact that I upgraded it to 6.03.00 last week.

I've done about an hour of searching for a method of just upgrading the video card in LinHES in order to get VDPAU working and this thread is the closest thing to my situation. Any other threads out there that might be helpful?
Thanks in advance,


UPDATE

After searching through the forums, I found this thread:
http://knoppmyth.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.p ... c&start=30

In it, I found a post by "Too Many Secrets". He had a similar issue. His solution (and what worked for me) was this:
Quote:
OK, I did the below:
Code:
sudo pacman -Rd nvidia-96xx
sudo pacman -Rd nvidia-96xx-utils


and was then able to do the
Code:
sudo pacman -Sy libvdpau nvidia nvidia-utils


But I only did a "pacman -Sy nvidia" since I am already on R6.03.00. This will also pick up the nvidia-utils when it searches for dependancies.

That's it. After a reboot, it all worked.
As it's been said here many times, the best advice is to search the forum. And that's what eventually solved it for me. Just had to dig a little deeper.
