v2.6.0, 53.36, unable to map framebuffer. (Solved!)
Just installed the 53.36 drivers. Install went just fine. (--no-rpms option selected) modprobe nvidia works with both nvidia and agpgart loaded without a problem.
However, when I try to start X, it fails with an "Failed to map framebuffer memory" error. And in the kernel log I get two errors:
"0: NVRM: AGPGART: unable to retrieve symbol table"
"0: NVRM: couldn't find pre-allocated memory!" (agp mmap fails?!?!?)
The machine worked just fine with the same kernel configuration using the minion.de patched 44.96 drivers.
Machine: Dual Athlon MP 2400, 1GB, SCSI RAID, GF5900/256MB.
OS: RedHat 9, Hand built 2.6.0 kernel (I'll upgrade to 2.6.1 later this week).
I've attached the XFree log file.
