I can't get my FX5600XT to work with 5332

Hello,

I have tryed the 5332 with a GF FX5600XT, but when I activate 3D-acceleration and restart X, my monitor stays black and my computer reacts on nothing but reset-button.

With my old GF 2 MX200 the driver runs without problems.
How can I get the FX5600XT to work?

I am running a Asus K8VDeluxe mainboard with a Athlon64 3200+, GB RAM.
I am using Suse 9.0 for Athlon 64. My video bios revision is 4.31.20.66.05 .

Any ideas ?

Thanks
Christian

Hello,

I added Option "NvAGP" "1" into my XF86Config.
Now the driver runs, but I get the entry

Jan 24 10:05:16 linux kernel: 0: nvidia: loading NVIDIA Linux x86_64 NVIDIA Kernel Module 1.0-5332 Fri Jan 9 12:42:32 PST$
Jan 24 10:05:18 linux kernel: 0: NVRM: not using NVAGP, AGPGART is loaded!!

into my /var/log/warn .

In my /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status I have

Status: Disabled

so I think the driver runs without agp-support.

Does anyone know how to get it to run with agp-support

Thanks
Christian

rename it
 
quit out of X
search for agpgart.o
and rename it to agpgart.old

that what i did !

Hold up. You *need* AGPGART on AMD64. NVAGP isn't an option.

It sounds like AGPGART might have a problem with the Via KT800 chipset, given that X starts with AGP disabled.

Problem solved
 
Hello,

I have updated to Kernel 2.6.1 and use the patched driver from

http://www.sh.nu/download/nvidia/linux-2.6 .

Now the driver runs in AGP8x mode.

...but I got a new problem with Alsa.

I got into that same trouble: the 2.6.1 alsa sound modules were broke. So I just used the oss drivers.

Athlon 64
Suse 9.0 for AMD64
Creative 5.1 Live sound

Hello whig,

I tried to use the oss drivers by editing the settings in my /etc/modprobe.conf :

alias sound-slot-0 via82cxxx_audio
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias snd-card-0 snd-via82xx
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-11 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss

but I could not get any sound.
How did you do it?

I am using a Asus K8VDeluxe Mainboard with sound onboard.

Sound came on with a manual modprobe emu10k1. modprobe snd-emu10k1 didn't do anything; it didn't even say it had failed. Also dmesg gave nothing new.

I'm still not sure what's the best method to load modules at boot with Suse AMD64. Mandrake 64 is much better in this respect.
