Post Overscan troubles and 4496

Hi folks,
I've got a Geforce FX5200 (not Ultra) for some video editing purposes and I needed TV out (SVIDEO to be more precise). With new 4496 drivers TV Overscan doesn't work anymore, even though with 4363 release everything works fine. Please note. No other performances issues.

Any hints for this issue ?

Well, i finally got the drivers working, i had to use the .kbuild and modify it slightly...

Anyway, THANX FOR ALL SUPPORT NVIDIA!!!! (no support here, no support anywhere)

I will remember that next time i upgrade...

Oh joy, now winex 3.1 does not work at all, the new drivers are killing my setup...

Not even Rune works as well as it does with a year old drivers... is this the kind of bs us Linux users can expect, we know we don't matter, but ffs... don't pretend like you have good drivers for us if you don't...

I don't know, but if THESE are the best drivers nvidia can produce, then i can hack out better drivers and get better performance on my five year old S3...

Of course, i am not your "usual" linux standardized user, but WHO is? Andy Mecham?

Default Toshiba Pro 6100

Configuration: RH7.3 kernel 2.4.20

Hi,
Thanks for the new driver version, but with my laptop Toshiba Pro 6100 (Nvidia 420 Go 32Mb), the version 4363 works fine with some trouble in twinview (as specified in README file).

I've just installed the last version to get twinview, and Linux freezes (!!!) when the X server restart ! (no CTRL-ALT F1, must cold reboot with power button)

Any ideas ?

Not uncommon at all IME...

Call nvidia, you bought the card using money right, make them earn their money...

Default Xinerama and OpenGL

I have heared and readed that Xinerama and OpenGL (together) is not available.

I need to know that is it possible?

For a great number of people, getting the driver to work in 2d is impossible, or near impossible if you don't use specific patches, none of them can be posted as the drivers are not GPL...

Maybe around version 12.21 you will get the performance you could expect out of the product you payed good money for? Though i seriously doubt it...

I see this issue as a reason why Nvidia will never succeed in the pro 3d market, that and the outrageous prices they charge for cards that can perform nearly half as good as other cards that cost 2/3:s as much... (the Wildcat)

And eventually, as the market for Linux/BSD continues to grow, they will be lost completely...

Dose your RH kernel have compiled support for 4GB of System RAM, or is it only for 2GB ?

it says that i need to recompile kernel or something like this...

What the trouble ?
What should i do ?

Please don't answer like - "Do what it said to you "
Yep, Slackware as you know dose not support RPMS. That is because they only use *.tar.gz compression.

This is good, as you no longer have a RPM data base to contend with when you need to install/update unsupported program/s.

RPMS are for everyday end users that like to double click on Window.exe files with the mouse.

Tar files are for "real" men and woman with a good Idea of what's going on with there system etc...

Now If you run the command:
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run --extract-only

Then change dir
cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2/usr/src/nv/precompiled/
You will find only RPMS.

In the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2/usr/src/nv/ you will find the NVIDIA Source files which you need for your Slackware system, because there is no RPMS for Slackware.

The Nvidia installer will compile the Nvidia driver for your system kernel, and then install the GLX and device nodes.

To answer your other question. If the installer says it needs to compile a new kernel driver, you can say OK becuase of the above reasons.

Hope this helps : )

GTK2+2.2.2 has changed some things around since GTK2+2.2.1, and so some GTK+ apps may not work any better anyway.

You might find some patches aound from the developers that develop GTK+ apps that fix those problems.

Yes, to the perosn with the slackware question.

Me and my friends exclusivly use slackware with diffrent setups, but we all use nvidia cards for our linux boxes.

THe only thing is to make sure you have a compiled kernel with source, then run the installer and it works flawlessly on all of our systems.
