Default RH9, Dual Xeon, Quadro4 900XGL, DVI + 4349 = Hangs!

Hi,

I have recently installed Redhat9 - and the latest NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4349.run drivers.

Installation went fine (installer downloaded latest kernel binary for 2.4.20-9smp kernel)

I have 2 flat panel monitors - and previously, running under nv, only the right one was working (I hadnt enabled twinview at this stage - but still it was odd that it was the right monitor rather than the left that was displaying)

When I run X, there is a flicker - and then my left platpanel shows no input signal and the right one goes black.

After a while, the cooling fans start to get stronger - indicating CPU loaded - ie it has hung.

Any clues?

This is a known bug with SMP -> DVI systems. The current workarounds are to use an analog cable, use a UP kernel, or fall back to 1.0-4191. Unfortunately, only 1.0-4349 works with RedHat 9 due to glibc and kernel changes. We hope to have a fix out for this soon.

I apologize for the inconvenience...

I tried running the UP kernel (do I need to reinstall?) - but failed:

Yes - when you change kernels, you need to reinstall the NVIDIA driver.

Yep. 100%.

I re-installed the 4349 drivers with the UP kernel and all works fine (even TwinView)

Thanks.

Not to be a PITA - but how soon are we talking? Hours, days, Weeks?

Just want to know whether I should bother going back to 4191 so I can get my 2nd processor + hyperthreading back...

When it's ready!

I hope it will be quite soon, but I don't have an exact ETA, and I probably shouldn't speculate on a date. I'm sorry I can't be more precise - as soon as I can be, you'll see it announced here.
