1.0-7167 for Linux x86 released

* Improved OpenGL workstation performance.

* Added support for XRandR rotation; see Appendix W in the text README.

* Added ExactModeTimingsDVI X config option to give explicit control
over the mode timings used on FlatPanels.

* Added Xorg dlloader support.

* Changed driver behavior such that PAT (Page Attribute Table)
is used where possible instead of MTRRs.

* Added a workaround for an X server bug with PCI-E GeForce 6800
and GeForce 6600; a fix has been provided to XFree86 and XOrg.

* Fixed stability problems on x86_64 PCI-E systems.

* Documented change_page_attr problems with x86_64 2.6 kernels;
please see the known issue "The X86-64 platform (AMD64/EM64T)
and 2.6 kernels" in the text README here:


* Fixed 2D rendering corruption on certain older GPUs.

* Improved compatibility with Linux 2.6 kernels.

* Fixed compatibility problems with some SWIOTLB em64t systems.

* Fixed a bug that triggered error messages of the form:

"ioctl32(doom.x86:6747): Unknown cmd fd(16) cmd(c0384642){00}
arg(ffffc75c) on /dev/nvidiactl"

* Fixed NvAGP incompatibility with recent Linux 2.6 kernels.

* Improved interaction with the udev filesystem.

* Improved performance of PCI cards on Linux 2.6 systems.

* Support for TurboCache GPUs.
The 1.0-7167 NVIDIA Accelerated Linux Graphics Driver Set for Linux/x86 is available for download via HTTP and FTP.

Please note: If you're using a Linux 2.6 system, you may need to preload the AGPGART frontend module, agpgart.ko, prior to executing the NVIDIA .run installer:
# modprobe -q agpgart
# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg0.run

"Added support for XRandR rotation"

I'm honestly shocked. I never thought it was going to happen.

I'm really shocked too!!! thanx nvidia AGAIN!!! really impressive changelog! Hopefully the driver will hit portage soon so I can try it...

Re: 1.0-7167 for Linux x86 released
Any patch out there which makes it work with current bk kernel?

Re: 1.0-7167 for Linux x86 released
Here is an ebuild set based off the latest one with the patches removed. It worked for me, but I can't make any promises and this is for you who can't wait like me.


You rock nvidia. The 6200 Go does too!

Very nice! Thank you guys!
It's nice to see, that the desires of the community are heard (-> ROTATE)
Hope it is in portage soon.

@PrakashKC: 1.0-7167 shouldn't require patching for current -bk kernels.

Re: 1.0-7167 for Linux x86 released
Hi. How can I extract the DVI timings for the flat panel of my laptop? Is xvidtune enough?

AlxMAX 03-11-05 10:04 AM

Re: 1.0-7167 for Linux x86 released
@zander: you should modify the title of the other thread and change from 6167 to 7167.

Re: 1.0-7167 for Linux x86 released

Well, I get this:


/var/tmp/portage/nvidia-kernel-1.0.7167/work/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg0/usr/src/nv/nv.c: In function `nv_agp_init':
/var/tmp/portage/nvidia-kernel-1.0.7167/work/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg0/usr/src/nv/nv.c:3075: Fehler: »agp_bridges« nicht deklariert (erste Benutzung in dieser Funktion)
/var/tmp/portage/nvidia-kernel-1.0.7167/work/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg0/usr/src/nv/nv.c:3075: Fehler: (Jeder nicht deklarierte Bezeichner wird nur einmal aufgeführt
/var/tmp/portage/nvidia-kernel-1.0.7167/work/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg0/usr/src/nv/nv.c:3075: Fehler: für jede Funktion in der er auftritt.)

I hacked an ebuild together and tried it. As I could't find the variable agp_bridges anywhere declared I wonder whether my ebuild is incorrect or there has been something changed in later bk kernels.

Unfortunately I don't know which gentoo patch fixes it with 6111 driver. I jst suspected in 6629 it is NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-6629-agp_bridge_data.patch, but it doesn't apply to new driver and comparing driver and patch it seems the driver handles some stuff like the previous one. (IE, the patch might be needed, but I am rather clueless...)

If you want I can try to install the driver manually w/o ebuild, if you thinkt he ebuild does something wrong.

@AlxMAX: good point, thanks.

Re: 1.0-7167 for Linux x86 released
@PrakashKC: you're right, this looks like a very recent change that's. I'll take a look.
