Default Problems installing 9746

Hi,

Running SuSE 10.2, previously had no problems with nvidia drivers, upgraded from 9631 to 9746 and when i enter command sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia i get an error about no screens available.

I have attached a nvidia bug report, but also the sax2 log, which complains of
(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module glx
(II) UnloadModule: "glx"
(EE) Failed to load module "glx" (module does not exist, 0)

Also commands

glxinfo | grep vendor

server glx vendor string: SGI
client glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
OpenGL vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation


glxinfo | grep render

direct rendering: No
OpenGL renderer string: GeForce 6800 GT/AGP/SSE/3DNOW!

have reverted back to 9631 - but still no direct rendering///

Any ideas?

If you're using SGI's glx, then the NVIDIA driver isn't correctly installed.

Um.. Cool.

So how would i go about installing the driver correctly?

Why does 9631 "install" and 9746 bomb out at sax2 configure?

Instructions for installing the driver are included with the driver README.

Yes. I am aware of that - that's how i installed the 9631 drivers. Using the same procedure doesn't allow me to install 9746 drivers.

Kinda why i have come, cap in hand, to ask for advice.

So - please. Does anyone have any idea as to why i cannot install 9746?

According to your bug report 1.0-9746 is installed successfully. However, its using a temporary xorg.conf:
(++) Using config file: "/tmp/sax2-26455/xorg.conf"

and isn't able to find the nvidia driver. This looks like your system is misconfigured, as I've not seen any other reports from people running SuSE-10.2 with this problem.

Hey,

I have the very same problem. The 3d effects in KDE works like a charm but the OpenGL Direct rendering isn't possible to activate so gaming through cedega or wine is out of the question.

I've installed the drivers both by using the included Readme (ofc), made a clean install and compiled the drivers manually and I also tried installing from a Suse 10.2 reposit.

This is pretty much what I get

server glx vendor string: SGI
client glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
OpenGL vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation


glxinfo | grep render

direct rendering: No

My system is
MSI 7950GT (512mb ddr3)
Intel P4 3.2ghz (Dual core) x64 Extreme edition (2mb cache)
Asus P5GD1 Pro Mainboard with 2.0gb Ram

And! I can't change to anything else than Vesa Framebuffer device in Sax2 config.

Anyone got any good "indian tricks" up their sleeves or any other tips for me to try?

The problem with mine was beryl etc....

The reason mine failed was following http://en.opensuse.org/Beryl "Beryl with Xgl" - and using the following command "gnome-xgl-switch --enable-xgl"

I then went on to remove beryl..... All crazy stuff happened.

I had to reinstall all beryl settings enter "gnome-xgl-switch --disable-xgl" then removed beryl, then followed the same web page BUT installed it following the "Beryl with nVidia drivers - no Xgl/AIGLX" route.

I was then able to install all NVIDIA drivers (making sure i adjusted the .conf file for xgl settings etc)

Hope this helped.
