Problems with fedora and 5336 drivers
 
Hi

I'm using kernel-2.4.22-1.2188.nptl, installed nvidia drivers, only it refuses to work
new kernel module was compiled and driver install was a success.. except when I tried editing XFree86 config file it messed things up..
removed Load "dri"
added Load "glx"
replaced Driver "nv" with driver "nvidia"

log is here: http://tfc-eesti.inkblue.net/XFree86.0.log
might be something to do with this:
(WW) (1792x1344,Monitor0) mode clock 204.8MHz exceeds DDC maximum 200MHz
and
(EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (NVIDIA XFree86 driver not found)

Thanks in advance and tell me if I forgot something, new to linux =P

You are not using the nvidia driver, but the nv driver: editing your XF86Config should do the trick.

Can you post another XFree86 log?

You or XFree is not using the nvidia driver. From your log:

Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nv_drv.o

It tried the XFree nv driver to load. Post your config or edit it to the nvidia driver. Maybe there are more entries.

...and delete the all the trash modelines
II) NV(0): Modeline "320x240" 15.75 320 328 360 420 240 240 242 250 doublescan -hsync -vsync

No need to for you.

been bit busy so had no time to check on forums but here it is..
http://tfc-eesti.inkblue.net/XF86Config

From your XF86Config:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nv"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce FX (generic)"
EndSection

Change the line about the driver, so that it reads:

Driver "nvidia"

You do not have any modelines, by the way, maybe you have deleted them too enthusiastically. ;-) I take it you are running some sort of RedHat derivative, so before you change anything either copy the modelines from a backup XF86Config, or run 'system-config-display' or 'redhat-config-display' to recreate the XF86Config (including modelines), then change the driver like described above.

hmmh, there werent any of those modelines, and I tried changing it to "nvidia" as I pointed out in my first post >_<
then it couldnt start X system at all so it already recreated default config

Re: Problems with fedora and 5336 drivers
 
You mean the configuration program was started automatically? After running that you will probably always have to edit XF86Config by hand, I don't think the utility knows about the nvidia driver.

Anyway, are things working then or are you still having trouble?

configuration program started automatically after it failed to start X window system, guess it didnt recognise the driver
and failure was because I already changed Driver "nv" to "nvidia" :/

I'm using the same config... wut is your primary display? try doing this man... backopy your old XF86Config file to somwhere then do this.... in a terminal somewhere... type # init 3
then type in... # XFree86 -configure it will build you a XFree86config.new ... now copy the text it shows you and run it with the new settings... if it works copy it to /etc/XF86Config to have it use the new config file that should work and if that doesnt try deleteing /etc/XF86Config before u run the configure process... to get back to graphical mode type in #init 5 but you should prolly reboot as the x system doesnt start right all the time...
