Anyone got driver Version: 1.0-6106 to work with 2.6.3-9mdk?
 
I've read various threads about the problem with the latest driver and Mandrake10 (2.6.3-9mdk).....

http://archives.mandrakelinux.com/co...7/msg00001.php

I have also tried the following driver...

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

It compiles OK but fails to initialise the "nvidia" driver, so I have to revert back to "nv"

Tampering with the kernel would not be something I would be up for. I was wondering if anyone could offer any help with this?

Thanks.

I had what could be a similar problem. When I had Driver "nvidia", booting up the X system just gave a black screen freeze.
To sort it underneath the
Option "DPMS"
line I added
Option "NvAgp" "0"
I then had OpenGL support in KDE, BUT NO AGP !! I found this out with the command "dmesg" showed me this.
Given that I have a 741GX chipset NOT supported by the nVidia V61.06 drivers, this seems logical if unwanted.

Hope this helps

Forgot to mention, I'm using 2.6.3-7mdk, but this could be near enough to what you are using to be the same problem.

Change that to "NVAgp" "2" and it will use native Linux AGPGart and you will get AGP acceleration. I have an unsupported chipset as well, works just fine.

As to the original poster, I have had the 6106 driver working pefectly in Mdk 2.6.3-7 and 2.6.3-15 so I would assume -9 will function as well, post your XF86Config-4 (the module and device section).

Xbob,

I appreciate the idea, but I can see that my card is running in PCI mode & this happens with the Option "NvAgp" set to either "0" or "1". With it set to "2" or unset (i.e. defaults to "3", I get the black screen freeze.

If I'm right, this means that I have to stick to Windows if I want AGP support........ unless anyone can help.
