Thumbs up 1.0-8756 x86_64

I'll be trying these out this afternoon when I get home. I'm glad that my 7900 GTs will now be put to use again, and the OpenGL with the composite extension as a default has me excited. Yes, excited.

* Added support for GeForce 7300, GeForce 7400, GeForce
7600 and GeForce 7900.

* Added support for running OpenGL applications while the
Composite X extension is enabled; see "The X Composite
Extension" appendix for details.

* Enabled hardware acceleration of the Render X extension
by default.

Anybody know if these fix the available AGP memory issue on the 6800 cards?

@siorai: yes, that problem should be resolved (please note, however, that it wasn't GeForce 6800 specific, it reproduced with all AGP GPUs and certain AGP aperture sizes).

Phoronix has provided their thoughts on the 1.0-8756 Linux display drivers: http://www.phoronix.com/vr.php?view=6261 with a couple Enemy Territory and Doom 3 benchmarks.

Well, woot!
Can't wait to try them out, especially seeing "Fixed interlaced modes on CRTs" among the highlights. Only my card has not arrived yet. It's due the week after next! I can hardly sit still

Thumbs up Re: 1.0-8756 x86_64

Also a thumb up from me - my favorite change is the ModeValidation option. With NoMaxPClkCheck, I get my GeForce 5600XT to work with my Dell 2405 FPW (1920x1200) over DVI again - and I'm no longer stuck with the 7174 driver. Thanks!

If the suspend to disk works, too, I'm even more happy

*** Apologies...just got here via the "Linux drivers" link on the front page...after going back to the forums I realise that I should have started a new thread for this problem...doing that now ***

*** New thread is here. ***

I'm having trouble getting suspend-to-disk working with these drivers. (The results were similar with 8178, so it doesn't seem to be a regression).

I'm running Fedora Core 5, with the suspend2 enabled 2.6.16-2080 kernel from atrpms.net and the associated suspend2 packages also from atrpms.
I've been using the serial console to watch the kernel messages during boot up.
I'm running this on an GF4MX integrated graphics (on a Soltek SL-7BA-F nForce 2 board).

With NvAGP enabled, the system locks up during the resume process - suspend2 starts (and possibly finishes) restoring the RAM image. Nothing further is written to the logs.
With NvAGP disabled, things get further. The resume appears to complete successfully, but the video doesn't come back. It does change from text mode back to graphics mode (and continues to output a signal, since the monitor powersaving doesn't kick in), but the screen stays black.
At the serial console, the resume appears to have finished, but the system seems to pause for a few seconds every 10 secs or so, and the following NVRM message is printed every time
"NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 8, Channel 0000001b"

A full syslog is attached, from initial bootup, through suspend, and then resume.


Enabling/disabling apic and lapic doesn't seem to have any effect.
I've also sanity checked by doing the suspend-to-disk from a text-mode console with the X server shutdown and the nvidia module unloaded --- this works fine.


Any suggestions on how to debug this problem further? If there's anything I can do - let me know.
Has anyone else had similar problems - should I submit a bug report?
I haven't had a chance yet to run the nvidia-bug-report script, but will do so later and attach the results.

Regards,
Ken
