nvidea drivers on 2.4.18 Debian (3.0 woody)
is anyone out here who's using the nvidea XFree86 drivers with Debian 3.0 woody successfully?
I installed the modules from the .tar.gz files with "make install" as described in the README, but without much luck. If I run X manually with "xinit", I get an error message saying that the "nvidea" module could not be found. The bizarre part of the story is that the module *is* in fact in the proper place:
# ls /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.o
and even the kernel module is successfully running, as we see here:
# ls /proc/driver/nvidia/
agp cards version
# cat /proc/driver/nvidia/cards/0
Model: GeForce3 Ti 200
Video BIOS: ??.??.??.??
Card Type: AGP
# cat /proc/driver/nvidia/version
NVRM version: NVIDIA NVdriver Kernel Module 1.0-2960 Tue May 14 07:41:42 PDT 2002
GCC version: gcc version 2.95.4 20011002 (Debian prerelease)
# cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/host-bridge
Host Bridge: SiS 735
Fast Writes: Not Supported
AGP Rates: 4x 2x 1x
# ls /dev/nvidia*
/dev/nvidia0 /dev/nvidia1 /dev/nvidia2 /dev/nvidia3 /dev/nvidiactl
/var/log/messages gives no hint at all what could
be wrong with it:
Aug 10 22:51:33 skywise kernel: nvidia: loading NVIDIA NVdriver Kernel Module 1.0-2960
No other error or warning messages here, all I get is a message from X saying that it doesn't find the nvidea driver....
Does anyone have a smart idea what I could be
I just got it to work, although the problem I was having seems different from yours. See my reply to another post
have got the same problem, could you solve yours.
If, then pls help. I'm trying to get into X for 3 days now.
Thanks in advance.
