Default Fedora Core2 test1 and 1.0-5336

Everything builds fine. I have configured Xfree too, but every time i start X it starts the correct resolution and i can see the picture for 1 sec, then it resets to 640x480.
Ive cehcked the logs and no err message is written, it just says
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "640x480"

I have removed all 640x480 configs.
What am i doing wrong ?

Dual MP 2200 MHz
GF4 MX 440
MB with MPX chipset

Unfortunately I am having problems too under FC2test1. From what I gather on the fedora-test-list, this will run fine on the 2.6.1 kernel that FC2test2 "ships" with. But won't under 2.6.3 or higher. I've tried on 2.6.3-2.1.253.2.1 and 2.6.4-1.281 with no sucess. I've modified my XF86Config according to the readme and also changed the FontPath ( I'm using xorg now). But when I restart xfs and change to init 5 I just get a black screen. If you wish to talk about this further or have found a solution please post it or email me through this forum.

Btw, it also happens with the generic gf 4 driver too.
Im baffled, it sets resolution correct then drops back. No err message in log

ewltra:
Your problem could have many causes, please post the X config and log, perhaps you've missed something in reviewing them. I suggest you upgrade to the xorg-x11 releases as if you are using latest development updates to test1.

WayneSteenburg:
Kernels 2.6.3-2.1.253.2.1 and newer may have default options enabled which will 'break' the compatibility with the nVIDIA driver (and all other closed source drivers not corrected for it). These options are Kernel 4K stacks (rather than 8K stacks) and Register Parameters; either one enabled will cause problems with the driver. The FC2 test 2 kernel 'supposedly' will not have them enabled, but we'll know when it is actually built.

You can rebuild the kernel removing these options and likely will have no problems.. otherwise stick with an older development kernel that does not enable these.

# CONFIG_4KSTACKS is not set
CONFIG_4KSTACKS=y

# CONFIG_REGPARM is not set
CONFIG_REGPARM=y

FWIW, the 1.0-5336 driver release, as well as other versions patched for Linux 2.6 support (including 1.0-5341), should work just fine with CONFIG_REGPARM.

Thanks for the info. I'll first try it with an older kernel, if that doesn't work I guess it's time to roll my own
