Default Sidux - Type1 not loaded

Hello,

I have a problem using the nvidia driver on my sidux computer. The card Geforce 4 440 Go did work with the kernel 2.6.27.07 before playing around with framebuffer images in TTY (fbi), but started making problems afterwards. With the kernel 2.6.27.10, everything works but the nvidia-driver.

I tried both, the actual driver 96.43.07 and the beta-driver -09, which give the same result. The screen is completely black. It does not even say that it is not working, it's just blank and black.
The last time I logged in, I also was able to hear the "Welcome"-sound, which is strange, because I had no chance to log in...?!?

What I did:
I started the xserver ("startx -- -logverbose 6") on TTY1, ran nvidia-bugreport.sh on TTY2 and after completition, killed the xserver again using ^c.

I think the problem is related to the what I wrote in the title: this is the only error I find in the Xorg.0.log.
Maybe also of interest: The first problems with the xserver appeared, after using framebuffer grafics like fbi. But I have no idea why this should have an influence on the xserver.

Btw, the community "nv"-driver works.

p.s. the logfile was too big, I split it.

Remove from your xorg.conf file the line:
Quote:
Load "type1"
Add to your xorg.conf device section:
Quote:
Option "RenderAccel" "0"

The answer sounds so cool, I was almost ready to write: 'Did the job'

But it failed, same problem, but no error in /var/log/Xorg.0.log :-(

I attached the new nvidia-report-log, this time smaller than the limit.

Hi sidux-user,

According to your log file, your GPU is not detecting any connected display devices. What monitor is connected, and how?

Also, if the log file is too big to attach, you can gzip it.

Strange error. It is a notebook (Samsung X10).
No idea of internal wiring...

Well, thanks for the answer.
But this was the idea of alienexplorer in the second post in this thread, by the way.

Happy Christmas

I had problems with the 96.43.07 driver and went with the 96.43.09 driver. Made the two changes mentioned in my original post and everything worked fine including compiz.
My xorg.conf looks like so:
Code:
terminator@terminator-desktop:~$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings:  version 1.0  (buildd@palmer)  Mon Nov  3 08:46:46 UTC 2008

Hmmm....

I tried your xorg.conf and the 09. beta, but the display stays black :-(

To me it seems it is one of these EDID-problems.

Unfortunately I wasnt able to check the md5 of my EDID, because running nvidia-settings did not give me the DFT-choice or however it was called.

I produced a new bug-report.
