Default Cannot start X due to Interrupt Request problem

Hello,

I am running kernel 2.6.11 (on debian-based system), and due to it being a custom kernel, I'm having to try and compile the drivers manually as modules..

Here's what I've done:
* disabled riva_fb in config
* make-kpkg clean
* make-kpkg kernel_image
* make-kpkg modules
* dpkg -i kernel-image-2.6.11...
* dpkg -i nvidia-module...

Linux boots fine, it gets right up to GDM start, and then blank screen for 5 seconds, then back to dmesg, then back to black screen, and eventually it gives up and gives me the log.

Hope somebody can help... it's confusing me now I have attatched the log here

Kind regards,
James

Default Re: Cannot start X due to Interrupt Request problem

Sorry, note of my hardware config:

AMD64 3200 cpu
1gb ram
nvidia GeForce fx5700

Also note that on the 2.6.10 kernel, the nvidia drivers worked, but that was a stock debian kernel, so the modules built fine. However, this new custom kernel doesn't!

And I'm using the amd64 architechture, not x86 (32-bit)

Hi,

well, from the log it is very obvious, that you have not read the README and FAQ, or failed to do, what was written there.

You are loading a couple of things you should not load.

For your problem, do you have 'assign vga interrupt' (or something looking like this in your bios)? If yes, set it to 'yes' and try again.

Default Re: Cannot start X due to Interrupt Request problem

Hi,

and this says the readme:
Q: My X server fails to start, and my X log file contains the error:

"(EE) NVIDIA(0): The NVIDIA kernel module does not appear to be receiving
(EE) NVIDIA(0): interrupts generated by the NVIDIA graphics device.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Please see the FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS section in the
(EE) NVIDIA(0): README for additional information."

A: This can be caused by a variety of problems, such as PCI IRQ routing
errors, I/O APIC problems or conflicts with other devices sharing
the IRQ (or their drivers).

If possible, configure your system such that your graphics card does
not share its IRQ with other devices (try moving the graphics card
to another slot (if applicable), unload/disable the driver(s) for the
device(s) sharing the card's IRQ, or remove/disable the device(s)).

Depending on the nature of the problem, one of (or a combination of)
these kernel parameters might also help:

pci=noacpi (don't use ACPI for PCI IRQ routing)
pci=biosirq (use PCI BIOS calls to retrieve the IRQ routing table)
noapic (don't use I/O APICs present in the system)
acpi=off (disable ACPI)
