NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9629 on GeForce4 MX Integrated GPU
 
OK, here's the problem...

Before this driver I used 8776 version, and everything was fine. But now I've upgraded to FC6 and wanted to try compiz. Since 8776 doesn't have GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap I've switched to 9629. Now I have compiz :)

All was well until I stared some of my favourite GL apps. They failed miserably. It looks to me as if the card doesn't load any images. The screen shoot shows that icons at the bottom only show outline but don't have associated images, the "land" is black but should be grass image...

Then I tried the beta driver 9742, but it seems "GeForce4 MX Integrated GPU" support is discontinued... :thumbdwn: Is it really? :( I hope this is just in beta version...

Anyway... Is it a problem in driver (since it works in 8776), or too little allocated memory 128MB, or something else? Can I fix that with some option in xorg.conf? Can I help you some more? (I didn't give you nvidia-bug-report since I don't think it'll help you much, but I might be wrong)

Any GPU older than NV30 (FX series) is not supported by 97xx drivers anymore. The 96xx drivers will be another (second, after 87xx) legacy branch with support for these pre-FX GPUs.
That "black-spot" bug that you're having is probably caused by "video memory exhaustion" bug, it occurs when you use compiz, it's known to nvidia devs and will be resolved in a future release. You can check if it repeats if you don't use compiz, just to make sure it's the bug I mentioned.

Thank you for reply...

I sure hope that there will be a few more 96xx releases :)

When I turn compiz off, and switch back to metacity the behaviour is still the same, so that's not it...

I googled for "video memory exhaustion" bug, but could only find your previous post... How can I see if that's the case? Were can I learn more about it?

Please generate and attach an nvidia-bug-report.log while this problem is present.

There will be additional driver releases from 1.0-96xx.

Thanks,
Lonni

Why are you setting "NoBandWidthTest" ?

Does this problem persist if you're not using Composite?

Because otherwise I cannot have greater resolution then 1024x768.

Even in 1024x768 there is no change on the GL programs loading images.

Also if I wasn't clear, GL apps that render 2D or 3D objects, but not mapping them with imagemaps, run fine. For example glxgears (test app) runs fine. So that should be a clue...

There is no change in rendering pixmaps in GL apps... I can't use compiz as a manager though, which needs composite extension

Thanks for your time...
