Default Neeeed help :o Newbie question about Suse 8.2 and newest nvidia drivers ( 5336 )

Hello all

Little problem with nvidia drivers: after completing installation 3ddiag still says i use the dummy nvidia drivers that were installed with suse. Also when i try to play a random 3d game, i wont get more fps than 1 or 2... which means something is wrong

As i said in the subject im a linux newbie, bit fed up by windows etc and i wanted to try linux ( suse ).

Is there anyone that can help me, i appreciate any kind of help

thanks

Lightbulb Maybe a solution (kinda)

I just fixed this problem with my SuSE 8.2 install today. The problem is fixed for the short term, you may have to do something different if you are using SuSE other than 8.2

You need to check out the README file for the nvidia driver. If you have installed the driver it should be in this folder: /usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/ or you can get it off the nvidia website. First check out appendix A and get the number for your chipset, then tell Sax2 that you have an nvidia chip and the number. Next, check out Appendix C of the README file. Here's a copy of the section that helped me out:

Problems will arise if applications use the wrong version of a library.
This can be the case if there are either old libGL libraries or stale
symlinks left lying around. If you think there may be something awry
in your installation, check that the following files are in place
(these are all the files of the NVIDIA Accelerated Linux Driver Set,
plus their symlinks):

/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.o

/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so.x.y.z
/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so -> libglx.so.x.y.z

/usr/lib/libGL.so.x.y.z
/usr/lib/libGL.so.x -> libGL.so.x.y.z
/usr/lib/libGL.so -> libGL.so.x

/usr/lib/libGLcore.so.x.y.z
/usr/lib/libGLcore.so.x -> libGLcore.so.x.y.z

/lib/modules/`uname -r`/video/nvidia.o, or
/lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o

Installation will also create the /dev files:

crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 195, 0 Feb 15 17:21 nvidia0
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 195, 1 Feb 15 17:21 nvidia1
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 195, 2 Feb 15 17:21 nvidia2
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 195, 3 Feb 15 17:21 nvidia3
crw-rw-rw- 1 root root 195, 255 Feb 15 17:21 nvidiactl

If there are other libraries whose "soname" conflicts with that of
the NVIDIA libraries, ldconfig may create the wrong symlinks. It is
recommended that you manually remove or rename conflicting libraries
(be sure to rename clashing libraries to something that ldconfig will
not look at -- we have found that prepending "XXX" to a library name
generally does the trick), rerun 'ldconfig', and check that the correct
symlinks were made. Some libraries that often create conflicts are
"/usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so*" and "/usr/X11R6/lib/libGLcore.so*".


Some of the symlinks above were not made correctly. This one: /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so -> libglx.so.x.y.z
was not made at all, these ones:
/usr/lib/libGL.so.x.y.z
/usr/lib/libGL.so.x -> libGL.so.x.y.z
/usr/lib/libGL.so -> libGL.so.x
didn't point at the right files. Do what it says about changing the names of the files the symlinks are pointing to and re-run ldconfig. I switched to runlevel 3 to kill the X server before doing this, and you'll have to log in as root to change the file names of the libraries. I had to give it the directory /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/ as an argument to ldconfig because it doesn't check the library in there by default. After this check to see if all the correct symlinks are there and restart the X server. Your 3D stuff should work properly, and you don't need to enable 3D acceleration in Sax2.

However, if you run YaST2 it will screw up what you have done, recreating the symlinks that were there before. I believe it is because the SuSEconfig linker is running a script called switchtomesa and I don't know how to stop it. So, if you need to change/update something with YaST2 afterwords everything will stop working in X, so change back to runlevel 3 and run ldconfig again to fix it again.

Hope this helps/makes sense.

Oh! I know the answer to that one.

In /etc/sysconfig/3ddiag, set SCRIPT_3D="no". That tells SuSEconfig not to run any link fixing scripts such as switch2mesasoft.

Those scripts look like trouble.

switch2nvidia does nothing but patch XF86config to say "nvidia" instead of "nv", but switch2nv also runs switch2mesasoft.

I think the nvidia installer should get the links right (?), but then you don't want to run any more scripts.
