Mandrake 9.2 and NVidia 1.0-5328
1 Attachment(s)
Ok, Im using Mandrake 9.2 with 2.4.22-10mdksmp, a Geforce4 MX 440 (64MB), ECS motherboard (L4VXA2) w/P4X400 North and VT8233A southbridge. 512 MB DDR. This is a clean install and works perfectly with the nv driver.

When I ran the Nvidia installer everything installed fine and the kernel moduals load fine. When I type startx the screen goes blank and seems to try to display the Nvidia splashscreen but stays black. There is a video signal being sent to the monitor because the power light stays green. ALT-Ctrl-Bcksp does not work. Neither does Alt-Ctrl-+/-. It seems from looking at the /var/log/XFree86 log that it might be something with the display but I'm not sure at this point. I am Attaching the log file, and my XF86 config file. Any help would be appreciated. Let me know if you need more info. I know the XFconfig file lists nv driver. That is so I could get here to post. I did change the nv to nvidia.

i had the same problem
you have to change this

Section "Device"
Identifier "device1"
VendorName "nVidia Corporation"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce4 (generic)"
Driver "nv"
Option "DPMS

to this

Section "Device"
Identifier "device1"
VendorName "nVidia Corporation"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce4 (generic)"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "NvAgp" "0"

that should fix ur problems

Confirmed, it works now!
I had exactly the same problem, and changing my old 4496's driver value (Nvagp "3") to "0", make 5328 drivers WORK!!! :D

Yes , you solve the problem with NvAGP "0" , but you get the AGP Disabled !!

I think that is better for you (and for me too) to revert to the previous version of the driver :)



Nowhere_Man 01-02-04 08:20 AM

Ok, I put the Option "NvAgp" "0" in and got the same thing. Should I remove the Option for DPMS? I noticed a thread where he put Option "ConnectMonitor" "DFP". What would mine be? "CRT"



fernandezm 01-02-04 10:35 AM

Mmmm... you're right, I did a 'cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status' and it shows disabled....
Then I tried with "Nvagp" "1" and I got the same error...
Tried with "Nvagp" "2" and it works... this is the agp status now:

[root@localhost marcelo]# cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status
Status: Enabled
Driver: AGPGART (inactive)
AGP Rate: 8x
Fast Writes: Disabled
SBA: Disabled
[root@localhost marcelo]#

But looking at /var/log/XFree86.0.log (~ line 472):

[24] -1 0 0x0000b400 - 0x0000b4ff (0x100) IX[b]

(WW) NVIDIA(0): Failed to verify AGP usage

(II) Loading extension NV-GLX
(II) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA 3D Acceleration Architecture Initialized
(II) NVIDIA(0): Using the NVIDIA 2D acceleration architecture
(**) NVIDIA(0): Option "BackingStore" "true"

So.... I don't know if I have AGP enabled or not... :D
What thing should I believe???:
