Default Re: 1.0-7667 for Linux x86-64 released

Hi,

yesterday I upgraded from an old version (7174 I think) to 7667 on a 64bit fedora core 3 system.

Amongst others the installer removed /usr/lib/libGL.* and /usr/lib64/libGL.*.
But it only installed /usr/lib64/libGL.* while /usr/lib/libGL.* remained deleted. Since cedega is 32-bit only, I got strange errors telling me that some DLLs are missing, x11drv could not be loaded etc.

Now I forced a reinstallation of xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL (i386) and cedega starts again, but shows a black screen, yeah.

Is there any way to tell the nvidia-installer to install 32bit GL libraries, too, and not just remove existant ones?

Weird... the install should ask you if you want to install the 32bit compat libraries.
You sure you didn't type N by mistake?

It did not ask that question. All it asked was "license agreement" and "no precompiled binaries found, download them?".
Now I removed all nvidia stuff (by using --uninstall and then deleting all orphan files), re-installed xorg-x11-Mesa-libGL (both i386 and x86_64) and ran the nvidia installer again. Same problem: /usr/lib/libGL.* is removed, /usr/lib64/libGL.* is replaced.

edit: I downloaded NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-7667-pkg2.run now and hooray, it asked me whether or not to install 32bit libraries. Before I had NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-7667-pkg1.run from the same folder.

gilboa:

I don't think its heat related. I have consistently cleaned out the dust, use a
solid copper gamer heatsink, and like I said, this problem did not happen
under FC3, at least a couple of kernel revs back.

Thanks for trying my lock up method on your system.

Since it also does not happen on my other FC4 systems running identical software,
it must be something specific to this motherboard. At the suggestion of DaveJ, setting
randomize_va_space to 0 helped, but did not fix it.

If it's indeed a randomize_va_space problem, then I doubt that nVidia has anything to do with this problem.

I also have lockups under FC4. The system freezes after 1 or 2 minutes of Wolfenstein : Enemy Territory.
I can play for hours on the same PC using a mandriva LE 2005 with no lockup.
I tried several kernels (official ones, 2.6.12.3 and 2.6.13-rc4), on both Mandriva and FC4, with the same kernel config, and the system always freezes under fedora.

I'd suggest you post a bug report to bugzilla.redhat.com.
BTW does FC3 lock your machine?

I didn't try with FC3.
I experienced the same issues under an ubuntu hoary with the default kernel.
I will try with an older driver to see if the lockup also occurs.
Maybe it's a compiler related problem ?

As far as I remember Ubuntu is 3.2/3 based.
Sounds more like a kernel problem to me.

Cheers,

Just for the record, on my new SUSE 9.3 64bit with a 6600GT.. I get lockups with this driver. I played UT2004 for probably more than 30 minutes though before the lockup. I believe it is kernel related as well.. because the machine hard locks (no network.. no nothing).

Btw, using SUSE 9.2 32bit on the SAME platform... everything was VERY stable. Platform is a Sun w2100z.

Hello All,

So if the Nvidia developers need any more encouragement to fix the problem with Opteron SMP system freezes, in the display driver (tried multiple versions, upto 7676), please consider this as much encouragement as is possible to send, coming straight at you from Dallas, TX.

I truly appreciate the full-featured driver for linux even with a relatively small linux user base (currently!), but the latest hardware is no fun sans a stable driver and is causing atleast my ulcers to act up something fierce.

My system has dual Opteron 246's running on an Asus K8N-DL board with 6600GT PCI-E graphics. I am seeing complete system freezes 3secs to 10 minutes into a graphical session (GNOME). no ssh access and no mouse pointer movement. I do NOT see this problem with the open-source "nv" driver.

I am working on getting a null-modem connection to my other machine to dump kernel output thro' the serial console. I am also trying different settings for the driver. Any other suggestions anybody?

Thanks very much.

Kannan

On my A7M266D (Dual AthlonMP) I switched from a GF5900 to a 6600GT and the machines, that was rock solid up to the upgrade, started Xid'ing every 5 minutes.
When I switched back to GF5900, the machine returned to normal.
I installed the GF6600GT card on a normal Athlon XP machine running FC3, and the machine remained stable.

My current development machines, Dual Opteron + GF6800GT, only Xid once on me since I built it. (Knock wood)

In short, If you can get a GF6800 card, give it a try. Seems that the 6600GT doesn't play well with some hardware combinations.

Cheers,
