Is the only difference the driver statement? You don't have a completely different config file that may have different modelines or TwinView settings, etc?

Same here until yesterday. I then compiled in the AGP-gart support in linux kernel 2.4.19 (Abit KT7 motherboard with AMD Duron 750 and VIA KT133 chipset, Nvidia GeForce2 MX400) and let the nvidia drivers use that instead of nvidia's own AGP support. Now it's ok ... So far ... knock on wood.

For other users, just the opposite is the case. Go figure.

Really, read the bottom of the Nvidia driver's README about AGP and stability. There are several AGP BIOS settings that might be helpful as well, and a special section on AGP as implemented by the SIS chipset.

Yes exact same config. Just the drivers are being changed. Im not the only one experiancing this. Other upgraded 8100 owners are too. Even on the windows side, everything beyong the 2x.xx series drivers breaks our setup. So it is deffinatly something that was changed in the driver. To bad they weren't open, they would be fixed at this point.

Unhappy UT2003 Lockup

I'm trying to run UT2003 demo on Red Hat 7.3 with kernel 2.4.19 and 3123 drivers; it's a dual AMD system with GeForce 4. If I play the outdoor board in Linux, my machine locks up after a few seconds (screen locks, no input possible, but hardware is still alive for about a minute of me pounding the keys in frustration, then it locks up hard). I tried various NvAGP settings to no avail.

Under Windows 2000, I can usually last a few minutes before locking up. Strangely, the indoor board of UT2003 runs better.

I had the same problems with the previous driver release.

Also, Quake3 runs OK on one screen, but core dumps if I try to use the settings in the README to run it across both screens in a TwinView configuration.

Finally, on another topic, it would be nice to default the boot screen to the DVI port in a dualhead configuration.

Default 3d is all very nice... but....

Well the whole thing was working nicely until I updated to the -3123 glx and kernel module....

now 3d is fine, openGL is fine, but moving a window around is as ugly as sin and eats up all my CPU. Looks like I've lost 2d accelleration.

No errors in the logfiles, no changes to the XFConfigs... no changes to the X version... so I'm blaming the new -3123 drivers

I'm using Debian unstable and XFree4.2 experimental packages.

Exclamation Assorted Problems

Hi.

I just bought myself a shiny new eVga GeForce4 MX 420 AGP card today, as my 3dfx Voodoo3 card was acting up a bit. I was excited when I got home, because nVidia had Linux drivers available. Whee!

Anyway, I'm having several issues with this card and the drivers. Return to Castle Wolfenstein seems to have issues when the graphics settings are cranked up. It will play okay with the detail levels at the very lowest, but turn on things like dynamic lighting and frame sync, and X pukes with the Scroll and Caps Lock lights blinking once a second. (I had the same problem with a card I bought earlier today, but that one went so far as to reboot my system occasionally upon dying on things OpenGL, so I returned that nasty little thing.) So while 2D seems to be working fine (with the exception of X taking 18 seconds to initialize video), 3D is terribly iffy. Note: Tried everything under Windows. Works fine while testing RTCW. God, do those graphics look pretty.

I'm running Slackware 8.1 with XFree86 4.2.0, and the nVidia 1.0-3123 driver. The system is a PIII 500 with 512MB of RAM on an Intel SE440BX-2 motherboard.

My XF86Config

I'd much appreciate help on this matter! Thanks.

For starters, I had to configure this via the tarball method because I was using Mandrake-Linux 9.0. Also, once I changed the type of driver to "nvidia", KDE as root (and probably as user) will no longer work! You folks need to sharpen up on this! I'm using a GeForce4 MX 420.

I got my GeForce2 going using the source rpms. I hosed things first, then I read the README and things when quite smoothly. I guess I needed a little vi practice anyway

Unhappy It's locked up my computer a few times

I just got a brand new computer with my first GeForce 4 and I couldn't wait to see how great it was. However, whenever I would leave my computer alone for a while, when I would come back It was all locked up. I was using the stock RH 8.0 kernel. Oddly enough, before it died it left a nice message w/ a register dump in my log file. Here's the beginning of it:

Oct 1 10:02:16 hostess kernel: VM: refill_inactive, wrong page on list.
Oct 1 10:02:16 hostess kernel: VM: refill_inactive, wrong page on list.
Oct 1 10:02:16 hostess kernel: Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 00020205
Oct 1 10:02:16 hostess kernel: printing eip:
Oct 1 10:02:16 hostess kernel: c01368d6
Oct 1 10:02:16 hostess kernel: *pde = 00000000
Oct 1 10:02:16 hostess kernel: Oops: 0002
Oct 1 10:02:16 hostess kernel: sr_mod emu10k1 ac97_codec sound soundcore binfmt_misc NVdriver autofs 8139too
Oct 1 10:02:16 hostess kernel: CPU: 0
Oct 1 10:02:16 hostess kernel: EIP: 0010:[<c01368d6>] Tainted: P
Oct 1 10:02:16 hostess kernel: EFLAGS: 00010286

I originally thought it was a problem with the RH kernel, and I filed a bug with them for it. However the bug maintainer marked it as a duplicate of a dozen other bugs that had been filed against your binary driver stomping on kernel memory.

After learning this, I realized that it probably wasn't just a coincidence that this occurs only when I haven't been using the computer for a while. I set xscreensaver to just show a blank screen instead of whatever fancy things are on by default. I haven't had a crash since then.
