Default Missing symbols when loading nvidia_drv v6111

Hello all,

I am using Xorg 6.7.0 (gentoo) and when loading nvidia_drv
it complains about missing symbols "fbWinPrivateIndex" and
missing symbols "vgaHW..." from vgahw. The module
vgahw.so is loaded! (see the log)

The kernel module is loaded normally and the nvidia-glx is
installed after installing Xorg-x11.

The nv driver works fine with this setup.

Help would be appreciated!

(The log en conf file are attached to the thread)

Greetings Peter.

Check if the symbols are stripped from /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/linux/libfbdevhw.so. This can be done with the command 'file'. Anyway you can do the check on any of the drivers from X11.

Tnx Hans-Juergen,

But no they are not stripped (which is good I guess).

So why doesn't nvidia_drv see them, they are there.

Peter

Btw, some of them are in libfb.so, but loading that
one in xorg.conf doesn't help.

Well, I solved it on my own, its working now.

When emerging with gentoo portage I used the USE flag dlloader.
(dynamic loader). But I didn't read the description of this flag which
says "Use with GREAT care, gives a lot of unresolved symbols".

So I emerged it without this flag. And now all works perfectly.

Thanks for the replies.
