Default install problem for linux Nvidia 3400 on dual Xeon EMT64 machine


I just got a Dell precision 470 (Intel dual Xenon 64EMT) with a Nvidia FX 3400 and I installed the 64bit version of Suse 9.1 on it. The installation was successful and Suse is running fine. However, it could not recognise my graphics card and installed a VESA driver instead. I then downloaded the Nvidia driver amd64 (1.0-6629) and installed it without error message. If I now run sax2 in "init 3" without parameter I have the chance to chose the graphics card but my 3400 is not in the list.

I want to use this PC to run stereo on one and/or two Monitors, but the problem is that without a correct driver the 3D application will not work. Simply running something like 3Ddiag gets allready in trouble:

# 3Ddiag
3Ddiag version 0.716
Verifying 3D configuration:
Using 3dinfo
************************************************** **********

================================================== ==============
No 3D capable graphic chipset found!
================================================== ==============

Checking GL/GLU/glut runtime configuration:
GL/GLU ... done (package XFree86-Mesa)
glut ... done (package freeglut)

Please find attached my nvidia-bug-report and it would be great if you can give me any advise on how I can get stereo on my system running.

Thank you

Default Re: install problem for linux Nvidia 3400 on dual Xeon EMT64 machine

as root run:

sax2 -m 0=nvidia (the number not the letter)

I don't think that the Quadro FX 3400 will be on the list of graphics card but it is supported. In that case just choose the Quadro FX 3000 DH or accept whatever they suggest.

After running this program you should have 3d accelerate working properly. To configure stereo try adding these lines at the end of your /etc/X11/XF86Config file:

Option "Overlay" "TRUE"
Option "UseEdidFreqs" "TRUE"
# Option "IgnoreEDID" "TRUE"
Option "Stereo" "3"
Option "NvAGP" "1"
Option "NoFlip" "FALSE"
Option "UBB" "TRUE"
Option "RenderAccel" "TRUE"

Specifically in the part that begins like this:

Section "Device"
BoardName "Quadro FX 3000 DH"
VendorName "NVidia"

(add those lines here)


And that's it.
