Tector: please read http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...&threadid=9614 and start a new thread with your problem. There is a specific KT400 issue that is affecting some people. Your problem is different.

I believe this issue is also noted in the errata for the 4349 driver -- the errata is available on nVidia's FTP site, and I believe it's also linked from the driver download page.
I looked at the errata, but that can't be the problem, because I have NvAGP disabled! and it is still not working, plus: my GeForce2 MX400 is working only on 4x. I have set that in the BIOS.

can you help me?

Since we're talking about motherboards and chipsets, the problem machine here is;
Shuttle AV49N with VIA P4X400 and VT8235
GeForce 4 MX440 64MB.

The same drivers installed just fine on MDK9.1 on another machine; Athlon2400, Asus A7V333x, VIA KT333 & KT8235, GeForce4 MX 440 64MB.

Is there anything else I can try on the P4 box? Or am I best to use an older driver (4191?), which I guess will have to be compiled for the MDK9.1 kernel.

Thanks

Peter

on other machines with mdk9.1 it works just fine:
P4 (no idea about mobo) with GeForce 4 Ti420
Athlon XP 1800 with KT333 with GeForce2 MX 400
Athlon XP 2200 with KT400 with GeForce2 MX 400 DOES NOT WORK
all three uses 4x AGP and disabling does not work, using previous drivers does not work, even recompiling the src.rpm... exact same problem.

I guess I'll have to Quake3 on the NV driver... with maybe 5fps if I choose minima...

I really need those NVIDIA drivers, what could be the problem... will it help if I somehow enable 8x in the kernel? even though I can't use that anyway??? my card only has 4x...

The nvidia drivers still can't run X on this P4 box. It just goes black and freezes everything when I try to start X.

I tried options in /etc/X11/XFConfig-4
Option "NvAgp" "0"
and
Option "NvAgp" "1"
but it always gives the same result.

Also, I tried a different AGP setting in BIOS. The auto was DA, but EA was no different.

I am running Mandrake 9.1. Would it be worthwhile trying a different distro? eg Redhat or Debian. Would this likely make any difference?

TIA

Peter
