1.0.9629 reverting to legacy pci mode (?); no glxgears
I appeared to have installed 1.0.9629 successfully into Fedora Core 6 (126.96.36.199) using the nvidia installer. The card is a GeForce FX 5700LE installed on a DFI Lanparty NFII Ultra B motherboard with an Athlon 2500+ processor. I've read about similar issues here and experimented with the various suggestions to no avail.
Starting X initially causes a black screen, but switching to a virtual terminal and back (CTRL-ALT-F1, CTRL-ALT-F7) results in the X session becoming visible. Looking at the x log at this point indicates that the driver has encountered errors and reverted to legacy PCI mode. When attempting to run glxgears, it aborts without ever drawing anything.
- Same behaviour observed with version 1.0.8776
- Disabling selinux does not resolve the problem.
- Cannot switch between modes with CTRL-ALT-+
I have started x with the command startx -- -logverbose 6 and then generated an nvidia-bug-report.log, which is attached here.
