That's strange... Do I have it installed or not?
After beating this driver in every possible manner, I've finally got X to come back up.
I can run 'glxgears' and see them spinning. Without NVdriver being loaded.
Does the fact that I have a screen before NVdriver is loaded mean I'm still not actually getting my GeForce2's help? If so, how is GLX working?
I can modprobe it and it loads fine (a warning about tainting) but it seems odd that it doesn't load automatically. Or is it just required for installation?
It must be loaded when GLX loads (or maybe it's when the "nvidia" driver in XF86Config-4 loads...) in order to use your card's help.
I don't think it helps to load the module after X is running, but of course, I could be wrong as I've never tried it.
If you want to get it to load automatically, I've posted some decent instructions about 4 times now -- do a search for "[ -c /dev/.devfsd ]" (or "alias" and my username) and you should find at least two of them.
I've tried it.
I get errors. I asked for help but no one answered. :(
Trying to install the driver results in everything from an erro message to being totally unable to enter X and having to backtrack on the command like.
(II) NVIDIA(0): AGP 4X successfully initialized
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to allocate LUT context DMA
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***
Fatal server error:
AddScreen/ScreenInit failed for driver 0
A quick www.google.com/linux search found that in the nVidia readme, this specific problem is addressed:
and they are the same version:
imperito@sanchez:~> cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.4.18-64GB-SMP (root@SMP_X86.suse.de) (gcc version 2.95.3 20010315 (SuSE)) #1 SMP Wed May 29 15:37:15 UTC 2002
imperito@sanchez:~> gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i486-suse-linux/2.95.3/specs
gcc version 2.95.3 20010315 (SuSE)
OK, then does this help?
The guy sent a message to the Mandrake cooker list complaining of the same error as you're getting; it turned out to be the AGP driver he was using (well, a combination of that and which AGP mode his motherboard was able to do). Does using agpgart rather than NVAGP help? Or vice versa, using nVidia's AGP rather than agpgart?
If not, the contents of your X log would be helpful.
