Default Geforce4 Ti 4200 Issues

I'm sure that this is nothing no one hasn't seen before, but i've read through the README (I could've missed something I suppose) and I'm still stuck.

My specs:
A7N8X mobo
Athlon 2600+ processor
Debian (Woody), apt-get upgrade has successfully been run, so 4.something is the version of XFree.
Using the latest nvidia-kernel-src/glx packages from debian

Download and such during installation went fine. Now when I'm trying to startx I get the

"No screens found"

Which seems like it has meant different things to different people. Yes, I do have a screens section in my XF86Config-4, with display sections and everything.

My lspci and XFree logs are attached. (lspci is after the xfree log)

Blackbox is installed and waiting on xdm, so there will be a window manager.

When I do startx, I get a couple flickers, and then the no screens found.

Only thing of note other than at the end (the no screens found) is the attempt (failed ) to load the APM module.


Thanks for the help.

Actually, no, you're not. Well, maybe you're using the latest ones that Debian has available for your installation of Debian, but according to your log file, that version is 1.0-2880. Which is about two years old, IIRC. And I see that your version of X is about two years old as well (version 4.1.0.1). That driver version has very little support (if any) for the GeForce4's, and none whatsoever for the AGP 8x ones.

Upgrade to 4363 -- and instead of using Debian packages, use the nVidia installer off the driver download page.

Cool Ha, it works!

Well, now it works. Thanks for the advice.

So, just for everyone else.

Changed my /etc/apt/sources.list to all testing instead of stable. Then I downloaded the unstable versions of the debian packages for nvidia-kernel-src, and glx. Then i followed the nonexistant readme (I have no idea why one wasn't installed with the package).

for those who care:
tar -xzvf the kernel tar that you got, in /usr/src
then make-kpkg modules_image in your source directory
then go find the .deb that was created with the modules_image in it, dpkg -i that.

reboot (sadly, this was important).

now, /usr/src/NVIDIA_glxwhatever
dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc

Then dpkg -i that (its in /usr/src)

when that fails, reboot! (I got some unmet dependancies, and did an apt-get -f install to one of them)

Then it worked.
