Default Re: 1.0-7667 for Linux x86 released

[quote=kennyz]I cannot get the kernel module (either 7667 or 7174) to load on my system, with kernel 2.6.12.1 and a GeForce3 Ti500.

Both 7667 and 7174 compiled and loaded on kernel 2.6.11.11 with the GeForce3 Ti500, but after upgrading to kernel 2.6.12.1, neither module will load (although the compilation works fine - with a few warnings).

Also interesting to note is that 7667 DOES compile and load on my main system, which is running 2.6.12.1 with a GeForce 6600GT.

Therefore, it seems that some combination of kernel 2.6.12.1 with the older GeForce3 Ti500 is causing the module (either 7174 or 7667) to fail loading.

Note that I assured that rivafb is not included in the kernel.

The log message is:
Jun 23 11:25:09 jupiter kernel: [ 395.915932] NVRM: The NVIDIA probe routine was not called for 1 device(s).
Jun 23 11:25:09 jupiter kernel: [ 395.916045] NVRM: This can occur when a driver such as rivafb or rivatv was

I've got the same problem with kernel 2.6.12.4 and a geforce 2 MX400, have you find a solution ?

@Marsdu13: make sure that your kernel doesn't include nvidiafb support.

Default Re: 1.0-7667 for Linux x86 released

Just to report an observation:

Dual Xeon workstations with PNY Quadro FX 3000 card (we use stereo).

Have had Fedora Core 1 installed and nvidia 5336. The kernel was vanilla 2.4.25,
since in 2004/Feb the FC1 kernel-smp was still too jerky/queer. No problemos.

Now I dropped CentOS 4.1 with kernel-smp-2.6.9-11.106.unsupported
(we have reiserfs partition on those machines), and nvidia 7667 on the systems.

Guess what? Slower OpenGL and random polygons render with apparently
without any lighting computed.

On a whim I did revert on one system to 6629 driver, which to my amazement
installed fine, and the performance is possibly better than either on FC1/5336
or CentOS4/7667. No drawing artefacts.


PS. the driver complains about the 'rivafb' being part of the kernel, but hey
I do not use that. Is that separate from 'nvidiafb'?

Thanks, Vic 20. At last I've found out about the driver problem. The problem was me (of course :-).....)
I did an kernel upgrade, on my fedora. Then I discovered in a read me file that the nvidia-driver had to be re-installed after an upgrade.
Now it running perfect. Also a small program to configure the display settings was included. Is now placed in my system tools menu. Great.....

By the way, I used the Mesa-6.3 driver.
