96.43.13 & GeForce2 Integrated GPU
 
Hi,

I have a box with a GeForce2 MX/MX400 onboard on an nForce-chipset and
want to use the binary nVidia-driver with it. I have to use the legacy
driver (96.43.13). It installs without problems, and the GPU gets
detected properly:

nvidia0: <GeForce2 Integrated GPU> on vgapci0
vgapci0: child nvidia0 requested pci_enable_busmaster
vgapci0: child nvidia0 requested pci_enable_io
nvidia0: [GIANT-LOCKED]
nvidia0: [ITHREAD]

However, if I start X, strange things happen. The video is shown, but
there are many artifacts and all looks kind of strange - it is
unusable. I can see the following from the nVidia-driver in dmesg
after X started:

NVRM: Xid (0002:00): 13, 0000 01014a00 0000004a 00000104 00000003

The README of the driver says that Xid-errors occor when the card gets
wrong instructions from the driver and/or vice-versa, but that doesn't
help me much getting to the root of the problem.

What I've done so far to track this down:

- Tried the driver from ports (atm in version 96.43.11) and the one
from the website (96.43.13).
- installed compat5x (The nVidia page claims this is necessary).
- I tried with agp-support from the nVidia-driver and with agp-support
from the FreeBSD kernel.

All that did not changed the observed beharviour. I would be more than
happy if someone could provide me with a hint...

The Xorg.0.log doesn't provide meaningful informations, except the
Xid-errors shown above. xorg.conf attached. I'm running FreeBSD 7.2-STABLE with xorg-server-1.6.1.

Thanks,
Frank

Does the problem persist if you disable AGP by setting the NvAGP X configuration file option to 0?

Yes, the problem persists even if I set NvAGP to 0. :-(

Has your setup worked with earlier NVIDIA FreeBSD graphics driver releases? Does e.g. 71.86.xx work?

Sorry, I can't tell. I got this box as a replacement for my old workstation, so it's the first time I try. What I can tell is that I had no problems under Windows, though...

Thanks,
Frank
