twinview bug ?
 
I've seen a couple of postings on the subj. but nobody suggesteda working solution so far.

It's interesting that I had twinview working - before upgrading to RH8 and installing latest
nvidia drivers.

The porblem : when I run X with option "Twinview" it freezes. If I run it on a second display (in parallel with my regular X session)
it reezes right away. If I boot into runlevel 3 (without X) and than run X -screen "Screen AGP TwinView" it starts and even seems to work but still freezes after I exit from X!

I thought about downgrading the driver, but it would force me to downgrade gcc since the older driver was compiled with gcc 2...


Any suggestions ?

My configuration :

nVidia Corporation NV11 [GeForce2 MX] (rev b2)
driver 1.0 revision 4191
2.4.20

Wrongo. ;) In fact, 3123 is the only release that will work for me with gcc 3.2. If I try any other version, libGLcore.so can't find __divdi3 (a compiler-internal function that should be statically linked into it).

Code:

[bilbo@beta fceu]$ gcc -dumpversion
3.2
[bilbo@beta fceu]$ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/version
NVRM version: NVIDIA Linux x86 NVdriver Kernel Module  1.0-3123  Tue Aug 27 15:56:48 PDT 2002
GCC version:  gcc version 3.2
[bilbo@beta fceu]$
