same problem - same card - 4 minute startup
I am having the same problem. 4 minute X start time.
At first I thought it was a total hardware lockup, but this post inspired me to wait on it. I noticed that the load average goes up to around 6.3 (this can be seen with 'uptime' after X starts)
I have *exactly* same card. Even same video bios.
I'm running RH9 with the kernel update: 2.4.20-9
the last line of XFree86.0.log is peculiar... something I've never seen:
"AUDIT: Sun May 11 22:00:32 2003: 2283 X: client 4 rejected from local host"
This looks like something possibly network related. This could explain the timeout period waiting for X to come up.
- video card = PNY GeForce 3 Ti 500
- driver version = 1.0-4363
- distribution = RedHat 9
- video bios revision = 03.20.00.19.08
- processor = AMD Athlon XP 1500+
- motherboard model = Abit KG7
- 512MB DDR
I have 7 of these machines that have been running fine on RedHat 7.3 with older NVidia RPM versions of the drivers for over a year now. Only the OS and driver upgrade has caused this problem.
I have attached "logverbose 5" XFree86.0.log
