Unhappy Direct Rendering: No with mandriva LE 2005

Hello !

I have already read a lot of things about this problem, but I can't resolve it...

I installed the Nvidia Drivers (8178) with a script, and it seems to work fine, but when I type
[code][glxinfo | grep "direct rendering" /CODE]
I have this:
Code:
direct rendering: No
In my xorg.conf file, I have this:
Code:
   1.
      Section "Module"
         Load "glx" # 3D layer
         Load "dri"
         Load "dbe" # Double-Buffering Extension
         Load "v4l" # Video for Linux
         Load "extmod"
         Load "type1"
         Load "freetype"
      EndSection
and

Code:
   1.
      Section "Device"
         Identifier "device1"
         VendorName "nVidia Corp."
         BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce FX (generic)"
         Driver "nvidia"
         Option "DPMS"
         Option "NoLogo" "1"
         Option "RenderAccel" "1"
         Option "NvAGP" "3"
         Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "1"
      EndSection
when I type
Code:
grep -i AGP /boot/config
in the console, I obtain this:
Code:
      [philippe@localhost ~]$ grep -i AGP /boot/config
      CONFIG_AGP=m
      CONFIG_AGP_ALI=m
      CONFIG_AGP_ATI=m
      CONFIG_AGP_AMD=m
      CONFIG_AGP_AMD64=m
      CONFIG_AGP_INTEL=m
      CONFIG_AGP_INTEL_MCH=m
      CONFIG_AGP_NVIDIA=m
      CONFIG_AGP_SIS=m
      CONFIG_AGP_SWORKS=m
      CONFIG_AGP_VIA=m
      CONFIG_AGP_EFFICEON=m
I added the line nvidia-agp in modprobe.preload, because I obtain this:
Code:
      [root@localhost philippe]# modprobe -lt char | grep agp
      /lib/modules/2.6.11-6mdksmp/kernel/drivers/char/agp/via-agp.ko.gz
      /lib/modules/2.6.11-6mdksmp/kernel/drivers/char/agp/sworks-agp.ko.gz
      /lib/modules/2.6.11-6mdksmp/kernel/drivers/char/agp/sis-agp.ko.gz
      /lib/modules/2.6.11-6mdksmp/kernel/drivers/char/agp/nvidia-agp.ko.gz
      /lib/modules/2.6.11-6mdksmp/kernel/drivers/char/agp/intel-agp.ko.gz
      /lib/modules/2.6.11-6mdksmp/kernel/drivers/char/agp/intel-mch-agp.ko.gz
      /lib/modules/2.6.11-6mdksmp/kernel/drivers/char/agp/ati-agp.ko.gz
      /lib/modules/2.6.11-6mdksmp/kernel/drivers/char/agp/amd64-agp.ko.gz
      /lib/modules/2.6.11-6mdksmp/kernel/drivers/char/agp/efficeon-agp.ko.gz
      /lib/modules/2.6.11-6mdksmp/kernel/drivers/char/agp/ali-agp.ko.gz
      /lib/modules/2.6.11-6mdksmp/kernel/drivers/char/agp/agpgart.ko.gz
      /lib/modules/2.6.11-6mdksmp/kernel/drivers/char/agp/amd-k7-agp.ko.gz
I commented the other lines, so I have only nvidia-agp line in my modprobe.preload file...

I added this line too:
alias /dev/nvidia* nvidia in /etc/modprobe.conf

so, I don't know what to do... I still have "Direct Rendering: No" and games are not smooth...

Thanks

Philippe

PS: Sorry for my english... (Only 18, so it's not perfect... loooool)

Code:
   1.
      Section "Module"
         Load "glx" # 3D layer
         Load "dri"
         Load "dbe" # Double-Buffering Extension
         Load "v4l" # Video for Linux
         Load "extmod"
         Load "type1"
         Load "freetype"
      EndSection
nvidia's drivers don't use the DRI infrastructure for 3d
you should comment out the 'Load "dri" '-line

Hope that helps

Cheers

I can't send you a log file, because there isn't any problem, except that I don't have direct rendering, and that 3D performances are bad...

If you don't have direct rendering then you do have a problem. If you'd like further assistance with this issue, please generate the bug report that was requested. Without the bug report, there's nothing further than anyone can do to assist you.

Thanks,
Lonni

I don't see anything in the bug report that indicates a problem. If you install 1.0-8178, does the problem persist?

Thanks,
Lonni
