Default Re: 1.0.9629 reverting to legacy pci mode (?); no glxgears

As I mentioned above, I'm up and running now, but I looked into a few of your questions in case it can be of use to someone:

>It looks like you're hitting two different problems. Here is the first:
>(WW) NVIDIA(GPU-0): Unable to read EDID for display device CRT-0
>0) Were these problems not present with older NVIDIA drivers, or FC5 ?

This error is present on this exact system using 8776 in FC5 as well as on my other FC5 system (Asus M2N32-SLI/Athlon64 X2, Asus 7600GT graphics) using 8776, but has never seemed to be a problem. I noticed in another thread that you asked if someone's monitor was connected directly to the graphics card; in my case it is not, it is routed through an Iogear 2-port KVM switch; I'll try a direct connection later and see what happens.

>(II) NVIDIA(0): Unable to get display device enabled on this X screen; not
>(II) NVIDIA(0): allocating video overlay
>0) Were these problems not present with older NVIDIA drivers, or FC5 ?

This error is present on this exact system using 8776 in FC5 where it was also corrected by your suggestion to set the NvAGP option. The error is not present on the other FC5 system (Asus M2N32-SLI/Athlon64 X2, Asus 7600GT graphics) where it works without the NvAGP setting.

>1) Does the 2nd problem also exist with an official FC6 kernel?

I had installed an official FC6 kernel with the appropriate version-matched nvidia module from livna. X came up, so I think the error is not there, but the session was otherwise poorly behaved, primarily an unresponsive mouse, so I went back to my home-grown kernel and your installer script. I neglected to check if glx was working.

>2) Have you verified that you're using the latest BIOS for the motherboard?

The BIOS is not the latest.

>3) If you set NvAGP to 0 in xorg.conf, does that have any impact?

This fixed the problem in FC5 for both the current and a previous version of the driver.

Thanks again.
