What does the nvidia drivers or the linux kernel after 7 minutes after power on?
Hi.
when you say that you 'press RESET', do you mean that the keyboard is not operational as well ?

If so, I can not help ! : (

But if the keyboard is working. Try to get into (what I call) the back terminal, useing Ctrl-Alt-F2.
type the command "top" (without the qoutes).
Look for the X 'PID', and kill that process.
X should then restart on its own. (because of the exe file in RAM)

I write this, because I hate touching the reset button on my PC. (no need)
And of course other pepole might find this hint handy as well.

NO PUN INTENDED !

Default Performance lags

I've got an Athlon XP 1800+ on a Via KT133 MB and a GeForce2 GTS.

I found that the 3123 driver gave me ~27fps more in glxgears but game performance was worse.

Specifically, RtCW ran fine, but UT and any games played under winex 2.1 were sluggish. Backing down to 2960 resolved the speed issue. I'm sticking with the old driver for now.

It's not exactly doubleclick/next type of thing. I'll post the complete wine installation and configuration tutorial here soon.

Default Rebot when X starts?

I'm running a fully updated "null" (Red Hat's most recent Beta), and when I installed the nVidia drivers, starting X causes the system to instantly reboot. (Or lock). This is not "X crashes, xdm goes nuts", this is "Wow, look. The BIOS post screen. Where did that come from?"

I installed the GLX .i386.rpm, and rebuild the .src.rpm file. The module appeared to build and load fine (2 warnings about doing pointer arithmatic with void*). But starting X didn't. Yes, I did update the XF86Config to change the drvier from nv to nvidia. I did not change anything else in it. (I have since commented out "dri", which did not help. GLcore was never in the file, and glx always was)

Earlier in the RH beta cycle, I was running the 2960 drivers successfully, although X crashed randomly (after a day or so). I have not tried 2960 with this kernel.

Suggestions?

Doug

Hmm , Beta OS, running unrated drivers for a beta demo... sounds like fun! Hey this is what may help you. Since the kernel version of the drivers in question vary you may want to d/l the Nvidia kernel source (or rpm) and compile it for the source file be sure to do a "make; make install" as root or you wont get very far. For the rpm it may whine about dependancy errors, no idea if it'll work.. give that a shot and see what happens, be sure to have the kernel module auto-load with the line

alias char-major-195 NVdriver


in /etc/modules.conf

As with anything you're milage may vary, good luck

Yep. That's the point.

I did download the .src.rpm for NVIDIA_kernel. I did not for _GLX. (in progress). I don't think I've ever used the prebuilt .rpm files for the kernel part, actually.

Looking up, utiel put a stock kernel in place instead of the Red Hat hacked, .. "modified" one. While a highly tempting solution, I've got an complex LVM setup here, and would prefer to be able to stick with official Red Hat kernels.

The GLX "source" rpm basically just unpackes the GLX tarball and installes it into a tree for rpmbuild to pick up and turn into an rpm. No compiling goes on, so recompiling it shouldn't affect anything.

Any other suggestions?

Doug

Talking These drivers are great!

At last, I can now fullscreen with the nVidia drivers. I upgraded to 1.0-3213 and glibc 2.2.4. Now I can do fullscreen with both Quake 2 and Quake 3 Arena in threaded mode.
