Unhappy More FC5 problems

Hi,

I just upgraded from FC4 to FC5, and I am trying to make it work with my GT 6800, but nvidia driver refuses to work.

8756 driver installation went by just fine, and "modprobe nvidia" does work, but judging from X logs, it seems that it is trying to load its own glx module, and not nvidia's:

...
(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so
(II) Module glx: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
compiled for 7.0.0, module version = 1.0.0
ABI class: X.Org Server Extension, version 0.2

Also, it tries to load GLCore, even though I removed it from /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

(II) Loading sub module "GLcore"
(II) LoadModule: "GLcore"
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module GLcore
(II) UnloadModule: "GLcore"
(II) UnloadModule: "glx"

Could it be that X11 7.0 looks for modules at a different location than the one the driver installer used?

nvidia-bug-report.log is attached. Any help will be much appreciated.

TIA

Andre

BTW: the same glx module loading problem happens if I rollback to 8178 (patched) on FC5, so it does seem like Xorg 7.0.0 changed something the installer isn't aware of.

... OTOH I wouldn't be the only one experiencing this if the cause is simply an installation screw up. Could it be due to the way I am installing the driver? (./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8756-pkg1.run.bin -aqn)

TIA

Andre

I had a similar issue.
The NVIDIA installer was putting the modules in /usr/X11R6/lib, but xorg was looking for them in /usr/lib/xorg/modules

There's an installer option to specify where the modules should go, I can't remember it exactly, but run ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8756-pkg1.run.bin -A and it will list all the options.

Use /usr/lib/xorg/modules as the modules directory.

Talking Re: More FC5 problems [SOLVED]

Nice, you just solved my problem =) _Now_ I feel I am running FC5 =) The option we want is:

--x-module-path=/usr/lib/xorg/modules

Attention NVIDIA folks: you'd better put this tip somewhere until a patch comes out, it will save users (and you ;-)) some headaches...

Thks a lot for the help,

Andre

Installing the xorg-server-x11-sdk RPM before installing the driver would eliminate the need to install the driver without any additional options. Note that this has been discussed in other threads on this forum.

Thanks,
Lonni

Hi Lonni,

sorry for the late reply, I overlooked your message. Indeed, I didn't know about xorg-server-x11-sdk RPM. Will it help if I install it now? (I mean, the way it is today I still have to provide --x-module-path everytime I upgrade the kernel)

TIA

Andre

Obviously you didn't read the sticky netllama put up:

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=68681

It clearly says to install the sdk package. The package contains xorg-server.pc, which tells the nvidia-installer where to put the driver files.
