Hey guys and gals
Let me start by saying I am sort of comforted in knowing I am not alone on this one -- I tried bringing it up many times on the FedoraForums pages and LQ.org but no one really wanted to delve into so I had been doing it on my own, glad that I stumbled here finally..
anyway, my specs:
[root@xps-m1710 nvidia]# cat registry
[root@xps-m1710 nvidia]# lsmod | grep nvidia
nvidia 8849732 37
i2c_core 28865 3 v4l2_common,nvidia,i2c_i801
[root@xps-m1710 nvidia]# lspci | grep -i nvid
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GeForce Go 7950 GTX (rev a1)
You can see below, using the 169.09 driver, and I do get the dead Xid issues w/compiz etc ... narrowed it down as did someone on here to the clocking with 3D gphx but that just meant I either disabled compiz or booted with maxcpus=1 at times when I needed stability --- anyway long story short, those options don't register with the proc driver registry for nvidia on my system ... I tried both an options and a nvidia file with the options in them -- is there a way to verify the acceptance of the flags on the module?
[root@xps-m1710 nvidia]# grep NVRM /var/log/messages
