StartX Crash with 2.6 Kernel - GLX Problem
 
I know this issue has been reported before on this forum, but I am stuck on this one again:

This is my software setup:
Slackware 10.2
2.6.14.4 Kernel
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8178(or 8174)-pkg1.run

When I go to 'StartX', it will not start. The log shows it to crash when it gets to 'GLX'.

When I was using Kernel 2.4.31, I could resolve this by either of the following:

Running the NVIDIA installation with the following command line addtiion:

Quote:

--force-tls=classic
or

doing the following:

Quote:

Moving or deleting the usr/lib/tls directory
Neither of these work with the 2.6 kernel. The only way that I can get Xorg to run is to 'comment out' the 'Load GLX' line in xorg.conf.

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Thank you.

That's strange because I run a slackware-current and I don't have to use the cheap tricks you use. I think that you use one module in the xorg.conf which is incompatible with nvidia GLX.
Try to comment all the modules you want, but GLX. Then try to add them, one by one, to try the onnoying one.

Thanks for that suggestion. I will try that.

Also, I have not read properly the advice given in the 'Sticky' in this forum. I should really have posted the 'log' files. I will do that as soon as I can then people can better assess what is happening.

what is your graphic card specification and what X11R6/X11R7 server are you using? X.Org or XFree86? and what versions?

When I activate GLX by uncommenting 'Load GLX' in xorg.conf and then startX with this command:

Quote:

startx -- -logverbose 5
the PC freezes leaving a blank screen with a blinking cursor in the top left.

If I then re-boot and do:

Quote:

run nvidia-bug-report.sh
the attahced 'nvidia-bug-report.log' is generated:

I would be pleased if someone could help me with this.

Thank you.

I see in your xorg.conf you do not have an `Option "NvAgp" '.

I don't know if you need one (i.e. it will use default), but try it anyway:

In Section Screen (just after 'Default Depth'), add:

Option "NvAGP" "3"

OK, so now I have found that I can run GLX if I do the following:

Quote:

rename the /lib/tls directory to /lib/tls-backup
Could someone please tell me what effect this is actually having and what I am missing in terms of performance if anything?.

Thank you.
