SuSE8.1 with upgraded kernel 2.4.19-174
my problem is the following - I anyone knows a solution....let me know.
I am working with SuSE Linux 8.1 - Kernel 2.4.19-4GB - want to get my old TNT2 Card working (again). Everything was fine with the kernel-version
that came with the distribution SuSE8.1 (k_deflt-2.4.19-74.i586.rpm).
I installed the precompiled NVidia-4191 Packages for SuSE8.1 - everything was working right .
Because of some bugs in the kernel-modules of the original kernel-package, which caused system failures (freezes),
I patched the kernel package with k_deflt-2.4.19-174.i586.patch.rpm from SuSE ftp-server.
Now the system is not freezing anymore but I NVidia-kernel is not working any longer ( NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.suse81.i586.rpm seems to be out of date now).
Two ways left:
I tried to compile the nvidia stuff with the tar.gz files for kernel and glx - 4191.
---- Yes - I also upgraded the sources of the kernel with kernel-source-2.4.19.SuSE-115.i586.patch.rpm - should be right....
I followed all the Instructions given in the installation-manual - I also erased all old versions of NVidia rpm-Packages....
Compilation gives some errors.....see compete log file...
/lib/modules/2.4.19-4GB/build/include/linux/highmem.h: In function `bh_kmap':
/lib/modules/2.4.19-4GB/build/include/linux/highmem.h:22: warning: pointer of type `void *' used in arithmetic
modprobe nvidia --- says:
Warning: loading /lib/modules/2.4.19-4GB/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o will taint the kernel: non-GPL license - NVIDIA
See http://www.tux.org/lkml/#export-tainted for information about tainted modules
Module nvidia loaded, with warnings
nvidia.o installed successfully.
---X does not start..screen only turns black and keeps black for more than 20 minutes.....system hangs up
---My XF86Config is o.k. - I am sure about that point ! - Remember it was working before !
---CTRL-ALT-DEL (or -Backspace) does not bring anything....
This goes to NVidia - would you please be so kind and build a NEW Package for the UPGRADED kernel of SuSE81 Distribution ??? - nobody is working with the old (bug)-kernel !!!!

Solution found !!!
I finally found the solution....you dont need to compile if you took the 2.4.19er Sources for compiling.....agpgart is not longer working with SuSE-Kernel-2.4.19-178...
Just Install both SuSE 4191 Packages...kernel-4191 od glx-4191 for SuSE8.1
change to the following:
in section "Device" of file /etc/X11/XF86Config
BoardName "RIVA TNT2" -- nevermind
Driver "nvidia" --important
#Option "NvAGP" "1" # use nvidia agp
#Option "NvAGP" "0" # disable agp
#Option "NvAGP" "3" # try 2 than 1
#Option "NvAGP" "2" # use agpgart
Option "NvAGP" "1" ---------------this line is important !!!
# Option "DigitalVibrance" "2"
# Option "CursorShadow" "1"
# Option "RenderAccel" "true"
and in file etc/modules.conf add somewhere
alias char-major-195 nvidia
options nvidia NVreg_ReqAGPRate=2 # force AGP Rate to 2x
options nvidia NVreg_ReqAGPRate=4 # force AGP Rate to 4x
Now it should work.....
