Default Re: [256.25 7600GT agp] Unable to play xv video

Thanks for the NvAGP hint, kriko - I was finally able to reproduce this problem. As to advantages to using NvAGP, I think they'll chiefly be in the are of stability on some chipsets; on most, however, I would not really expect NvAGP to perform any better than NvAGP.

This should be fixed in 256.44.

Sorry to dig it from the grounds, but I have the issue with latest 260.19.36 nvidia drivers, under Debian Squeeze (2.6.32, Xorg 1.7.7, 7800GS). It's kind of a dilemma since NvAGP option is needed in order to have a working Suspend/Resume. In fact, without NvAGP option being set, I'm unable to restore my X session (KDE for instance).

Is this a regression or a new issue ?

lissyx, Could you also test with 256.44 to see if it was:

a) Fixed in 256.44, but regressed later.
b) Not fixed in 256.44 for you; i.e. you have a different problem.

If (a), if you could try all the drivers in between to find exactly where it regressed, that'd be useful. If (b), can you please supply an nvidia bug report using the latest driver.

Thanks.

Okay, I'll try to do it before friday, but it's gonna be hard : it's kinda long process, and I have my FOSDEM slides to prepare

Testing with 256.44, it looks good.

After retesting nVidia 260.19.36, I wasn't able to reproduce the issue. I thought it might be related to my KDE session, so I restarted it to re-test (I was launching an empty X and just running mplayer inside it), and still looking good.

The only change is that, in order to be able to test more rapidly, I set up "-a -q" parameters. Obviously, at the first run, I wasn't able to perform the install: installer complained that my kernel's GCC version was 4.3 and that I was using GCC 4.4. So I exported CC=gcc-4.3. And then, from this starting point, unable to reproduce the issue. I'm retesting to confirm that GCC version is the root of this.

Okay, that wasn't the root of the issue. Still, I'm unable to reproduce now. Sorry for the noise :/
