MX440 on Fedora Core 1
1 Attachment(s)
I have a serious performance problem, this card can easily pull Quake 3 Arena off at 60fps. Yet it can't even do Tux racing at 5fps. So I thought maybe red hat launched fedora with some old drivers. I went and did everything that everyone has said to do to install these drivers. I have now done it 10 different times all on fresh installs of fedora and the same error message comes up each time:

(EE) NVIDIA(0): no HorizSync values remaining
(EE) NVIDIA(0): No modes remaing for display device CRT-0
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none havea usable configuration.

If this error has to do with my monitor I don't know what to say cause its a 17" monitor that can do 1600x1200 at 60hz and 1024x768 at 85hz.

Other then that I'll post the xf86config file. This is before I make any changes.

well in the XF86Config
you need to replace "nv" with "nvidia"

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce 4 MX (generic)"

and delete Load "dri" from Module section

Section "Module"
Load "dbe"
Load "extmod"
Load "fbdevhw"
Load "glx"
Load "record"
Load "freetype"
Load "type1"

I have done that. That is why I am now asking this question here.

I attached the original xf86config file just so everyon would see the untampered file.

Can some one please tell me what is wrong with my system. And why it keeps giving me this error?

mariuz 02-20-04 05:19 AM

oops the nvidia kernel module isn't loaded

(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (module does not exist, 0)
try to run the setup again

Ok reinstalled it and changed things again and the same thing is happening, here is what I'm doing:

1. Download file

2. su

3. sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run

4. hit enter on ok for user aggrement
goes through installation of files
hit enter on ok after telling me installation was successful and where the readme file is

5. go back to command line change these settings in XF86Config:
remove line Load "dri"
change 'nv' to 'nvidia'

6. :wq

7. on command line type reboot and wait for system to boot back up

8. Once system boots back up I login and then type startx and that is when I get this message :(

I'm posting the new logs in a minute.

You could try setting the IgnoreEDID option in your XFree86 configuration file (make sure the VertRefresh and HorizSync values are those of your monitor).
