X hang after modifying XF86config-4
1 Attachment(s)
hi, after nvidia driver installation (and modifying XF86config-4) i get a black screen. (total hang)

when I change the device driver back to nv, X starts without any problems. I have tried NvAgp 0 (and 1) and pci=noacpi -> but i'm still not able to start X.

when I use nvidia as driver XFree86.0.log contains no information. I don't know what to do. I have this problem with kernel 2.4.18 and 2.6.0. the nvidia card doesn't share it's irq number with any other device (or at least I think so)


AXP 1800
Debian woody (unstable)
256 mb RAM
Mainboard: elitegroup k7s5a (maybe this is the problem?)
nvidia driver version: 5328

Model: GeForce3 Ti 200
IRQ: 5
Video BIOS: ??.??.??.??.??
Card Type: AGP

In your XF86Config don't load the dri module.

dri module is loaded
Section "Module"
Load "dbe"
Load "dri" <----
Load "extmod"
Load "glx"
Load "pex5"
Load "record"
Load "xie"

The nvidia instructions say not to load the dri module.

Quote /usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/README

In the Module section, make sure you have:

Load "glx"

You should also remove the following lines:

Load "dri"
Load "GLcore"

hi, thanks for your reply -> I unloaded the dri module but nothing changed

Please post an X log.

the problem is - there is no X log. when i start the x server with the nvidia driver no xfree86.0.log is created. when i start with the nv driver everything works all right.

i tried apm=off acpi=off vga=normal -> but no effects.
I run 2 os on my system (Suse 8.1 kernel 2.4.16 nvidia driver 3xxx)
(Debian woody 2.6.0 nvidia driver 4496)

In suse the nvidia driver works - but not on woody

maybe this is a problem with the agp device?

I loaded the module agpgart is this ok? i also set nvagp to 0 -> in order to turn agp support off.

Have you tried with 1.0-5336 on your 2.6 system?
