Default Re: crazy colors! 100.14.09 with 8600m on macbook pro

So, if switching to nv driver and back to nvidia does not work for me, will the previously posted patch even work? I've had this problem for over a month now, sure would be nice to have an update...

Did you compile the latest nv driver from http://people.freedesktop.org/~aplattner/nv ?

aha! that does help unfortunately that patch wasn't working for me, got errors about "malformed patch" so i just wrote a simple script to swap drivers and restart X at boot, works simple enough.

Hi Everybody,
I have macbook pro with 17" HiRes 1920x1200, running FC6 kernel 2.6.21
and I have the same problem with the rainbow colors.
Can anybody who succesfuly run nvida driver with this macbook to send his xorg.conf file or to tell me what should I put there to solve this problem?

yes, but it does not really solve the problem its only a workaround.

1. compile and install the latest nv driver from the url I already posted
2. start the X server with the nv driver and then restart it with the nvidia driver

this works on my MBP

Hi and thanks for reply, I actualy tryied to compile the git-nv but I have had an error that the xorg is ver 1.1 and it needs 1.3, when I upgraded to 1.3 the same
error still there.
Bu I solved the problema as follows:
1. Extracted the NVidia driver
# sh NVidia....100.14.11.run -x
2. go to src dir in the extracted folder and edit the "nv.c" file
* changed this routine:
__nv_init_sp = sp;

return 0;
------------------------- with this one:

__nv_init_sp = sp;
{
for (i = 0; i < num_nv_devices; i++) {
printk("Macbook Hack\n");
struct pci_dev *dev = nv_linux_devices[i].dev;
#define NV_WR32(p,i,d) (__raw_writel((d), (void __iomem *)(p) + (i)))

unsigned long mmio_start;
__u32 mmio_len;

mmio_start = pci_resource_start(dev, 0);
mmio_len = pci_resource_len(dev, 0);
volatile u32 __iomem *REGS;

REGS = ioremap(mmio_start, mmio_len);

if(REGS) {
NV_WR32(REGS, 0x1708, 0);
NV_WR32(REGS, 0x1900, 0);
NV_WR32(REGS, 0x1901, 0);
NV_WR32(REGS, 0x1902, 0);
NV_WR32(REGS, 0x1903, 0);
NV_WR32(REGS, 0x1904, 0);
NV_WR32(REGS, 0x1905, 0);
NV_WR32(REGS, 0x1906, 0);
NV_WR32(REGS, 0x1907, 0);

iounmap(REGS);
} else {
printk("Error mapping memory\n");
}
}
}

return 0;
----------------------
3. I installed the nvidia driver:
#./nvidia-installer -aN

4. I started X and everything is OK, but with some lost extentions.

5. I loaded the extmod module in the xorg.conf in the Modules section, so the external extensions are available for X.

Section "Module"
Load "dbe"
Load "extmod"
Load "fbdevhw"
Load "glx"
Load "record"
Load "freetype"
Load "type1"
EndSection

and that's it.
