Thumbs down UPGRADE to kernel 2.4.24 and no more 3d accell!

Hello guys!

Everything was beaty on this world, till that day, when I'd decided to upgrade my kernel from 2.4.22 to 2.4.24, after ugrading my kde 3.1 to 3.2 too.

Results: no 3d accel to my video!

So, as I used to think, let's install nvidia driver again.
Poor man: the results are the same. I can install and even the splash screen pops up!
But soon I realize that the driver is not working by trying to run a openGL screen saver.

What should I do?





Thank u!

Type glxinfo to see what's going on, check if XF86Config has been modified, and look at the files in /proc/driver/nvidia.

You can cat those zero-length files in /proc - they may reveal something. Your glxinfo looks ok so check your X log.

Ok, I can't post it here (X log) till saturday,
because now I'm not home.
(once again, sorry 4 make u waiting)
I rememer that in the last time I saw it, after the upgrades, there was already a error message related to nvidia.

but what do you mean with "cat those zero-length files in /proc"?
