nvidia 8600gt "no decoder detected" problem
2 Attachment(s)
H1 all.

What I have at the moment :

ASUS GeForce 8600gt pci-e 256 mb
FreeBSD 6.3-Release i386 SMP
Intel DP35DP Motherboard

What I have done:

Have run different versions of freebsd distributives, such as 6.2-RELEASE, 6.3-RELEASE, 7.0-RELEASE, trying different versions of xorg and nvidia-driver (from ports & packages), and just no success, X server totally freezing the operating system, and only chance is to hard reboot. Xorg "nv" & "vesa" started as they should. But I wanna use 3d, cause videocard is very good to go.

campat5x is up and running

Re: nvidia 8600gt "no decoder detected" problem
As a first step, please install the 177.81 NVIDIA FreeBSD graphics driver release. If the problem persists, please generate/attach an nvidia-bug-report.log file.

at _http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html I only see 177.80 version, if 177.81 exist could you give the link to it ?

177.80 bug report attached.

Re: nvidia 8600gt "no decoder detected" problem
Also I can add that my videocard have 262144 kBytes BUT in xorg.log and bug report I see that driver sees 524288 kBytes. Its really odd.

Can anyone help me ? When a new driver (or fixed) will be released ?

So, finally released 177.82 driver for FreeBSD x86 systems, but the same "memory" problem persist. Can someone help to do a thing that can help this driver to "see" my videocard memory size ?

Xorg.0.log last message is "setting mode 1280x1024".
