5328 not working while 4496 were ok
 
1 Attachment(s)
hello,
whith the same config the 4496 were working quite well.

But the 5328'one don't work:
i have got a black screen after X starts and in the XFree*.log the error
(EE) No screen found

and even problem with the virtual console that don't scroll anymore when X is started. All is ok before.

Config:
debian woody 3.0r2 kernel 2.4.24 (ftp.kernel.org)
Atlhlon XP 1800+
Geforce 4 Mx 440 (0x0171)
MotherBoard: AsRock KTVT2 with via chipset
Screen:Acer 77e
no /dev/agpd
and no modeline in XFreeConfig but it is ok with 4496

So what are the big changes between 4496 and 5328 ???

so http://www.sh.nu/download/nvidia/linux-2.4/ seems to correct the problem.
i 'm gonna try that.

And i wonder if the output of lspci is ok with the unknown device or haven't I forgot to compile something in the kernel ?

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation: Unknown device 0171 (rev a3)

lspci uses a regular file to match PCI ids to product names; the man page should tell you where that file lives (/usr/share/misc/pci.ids on Debian GNU/Linux).

re
 
thx zander
i have updated my pci.ids
and lspci show a nice Geforce Mx 440 now.

(still not tried the www.sh.nu drivers)
