gui quite long to start
 
Hello, I have a dell laptop i5150 with a nVidia GeForce FX Go5200 (64Mo DDR) controller, and I installed the nvidia driver 26052004-NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run, with a rh9, kernel 2.4.20-8.
But gui is quite long to start, about 30 secondes.
Can I improve anything or is it normal ?

Thanks for your linux support, Xavier.

PS : I had an error message concerning the libdri extension not supported, so I removed this in my XF86Config file, and I have no more error message when I "startx".

The IgnoreDisplayDevices NVIDIA X driver option might help (see the README for additional information).

Thanks for your answer, I tried that once, using
Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "CRT, DFP, TV"
in Device section of the XF86Config file.
From now on, I did not remark much improvement, but I did not do precise tests. However, it still works. It may be the rh9 I have installed, uses to much applications when starting the gui ?
It is not then relied to the gforce controller. How can I manage these applications ? Ani idea ?

Regards, Xavier.

To clarify: are the 30 seconds measured from startx to the NVIDIA logo or to the fully loaded desktop environment?

No it is for the whole stuff. I use to boot in mode 3 (mode console, the reason of startx). And it takes for less than 15 seconds to see the logo. Is it ok ?


Another thing, I have the following messages using dmesg:

0: nvidia: loading NVIDIA Linux x86 NVIDIA Kernel Module 1.0-5336 Wed Jan 14 18:29:26 PST 2004
Linux agpgart interface v0.99 (c) Jeff Hartmann
agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory: 439M
agpgart: Detected Intel(R) 855PM chipset
agpgart: AGP aperture is 128M @ 0xe0000000

What does mean the last line 128M ? I have 64M of shared memory. Is it ok ? I only have 512MB of RAM. Would some RAM be wasted ?

xilopp.
