4191 GLUT + modules.conf problems
I have two separate problems with the new drivers.
Most annoyingly, the nvidia module does not load automatically on boot. This has always worked fine before, and works when I revert back to the older drivers. When 4191 is installed I have the following in my modules.conf
alias char-major-195 nvidia
This is the same as how the old drivers use it except obviously the driver name is NVdriver. I don't even know how to start looking for problems here. Does anyone have a link on how modules.conf actually works? I mean what makes the system know it should load the module 'nvidia'? I know I can just add an insmod somewhere in my boot, but I'd like to know how to do it properly :)
My other problem is with GLUT. After installing 4191 some apps, like celestia and billards-gl failed with a 'GLXBadRenderRequest'. The apps are linked to libGLU.so.1 which on my system is from a package named xlibmesa3. The same package and apps work fine with the older drivers though.
So I'm having to use 3123 at the moment, which seems a little slower (the new 2D work seems to go quite well on mine).
I do not know why it doesn't work for you (would need more details), but you can try to load the module at boot time by adding the line:
to the file "/etc/modules". You might need to also add the line:
before nvidia if you compiled the agpgart driver as a module.
My agpgart is built as a module although I was trying to use the built in nvagp. I'll try again and see if I can solve it now.
