Default Delay bug

I have the delay bug. Easily reproducible; here is my setup:
Slackware 8.1
Default kernel: 2.4.18
XFree86: 4.2.0
nVidia drivers: 1.0-3123 kernel and GLX portions both built from source .tar.gz
Motherboard: Asus A7N266
Video: Integrated GeForce 2 (with 32MB DDR allocated)
Processor: Athlon XP 2100+
RAM: 768MB DDR

Each time XFree86 is invoked with `startx` it takes at least 30 seconds and more often in the 1 minute range... Once in, however, everything seems to run fine...

Default Texture Segfaults

Thanks to Joseph Kain at nVidia, my problem was fixed. /dev/zero required write permissions for libGLcore.so to work. He says he'll add a check for proper permissions into the libGLcore.so.

This shouldn't effect anyone with vanilla distros, but I built my system from scratch.

Default DRIVERS WORK WITH G4 using REDHAT 8.0

Drivers work fine on my new Sytem, using RedHat 8.0

Systtem spec:
AMD Athlon-XP 2000+
VIA KT400 pro (MSI) Main board
256MB @ 333MHz
80GB HD with 8MB cache
so on and so on

works well with the G4 Ti4600 64MB

CFLAGS added in to the Make file, -m3dnow -march=athlon-xp

The AGP was disabled, but i did not allow the NVAGP Option, as yet.

I have noticed those stripes before, using the 2960 driver, they apeared for one or two seconds and then the X screen would kick in.

Does anyone have any clue on how to fix this?
The only fix (for my configuration) is downgrading to 1.0-2313.

Well, hopefully you have also
SiS 650 based systems for test,
PNY GeForce4 MX 420 PCI

Linux: SuSE 8.0, kernel 2.4.18-SuSE, Shuttle SS50/P4 1.6a, 1GB DDR, IBM GXP, only SS50 related kernel with
- APIC, ACPI, OHCI, Lucent FW, Linksys WPM11 wiless lan, SiS 315 AGP graphics

- PNY GeForce in PCI: 0:12:0 or 0:11:0, only two PCI slots. IRQ 5 with PIC and IRQ > 16 with APIC on

- XFree 4.2.0: XFree86 NV driver works OK!
Clear and sharp picture, works also in dual display mode with SiS 315

- XFree 4.2.0: NVidia 3125 kernel module rebuild and installed, loaded
GLX from binary RPM
- kdm can not find NVdriver
- XFree86 probe successfull
- startx: XFree up and running, KDE 3.0.x loading does not finish. Mouse works, no keyboard, graphics garbled, no access to console, hang
- VGA console on PNY works OK
- 2xxx series driver does not work

Hint: 40.72, 41.03 XP drivers do not work. 2D desktop garbled, if window moved around. DirectX 3D (7.x, 8.1 tests) no show. Direct draw works.

Nvidia driver options:
- NvAgp 0
- display mode 1600x1200 16bpp
- nvidia only display adapter initialized

Modules: glx, extmod and fonts
Hang whether int10 loaded or not.

Hang whether NVidia initialized VGA (PCI fist) or secondary adapter (AGP first, bios).

The update driver does not have any improvement as the total color depth screen i can select is still max of 24-bit since I have a 32MB nVidia TNT2???

Also if I change the screen resolution to 1280x1024, the refresh rate is low, picture movement is stale and broken, sounds like moving cartoons with paper.

Any help?

I did "cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status" and get this:

Status: Enabled
Driver: AGPGART
AGP Rate: 4x
Fast Writes: Disabled
SBA: Disabled

and when I vi the card file, i found that Fast Writes is not supported. Is that a 32MB VGA is slow bad???

Any help folks...? the only thing i felt changed is my Tux Racer works better but still have some delay picture motion.

Additional info:

System: Pentium III 733
RAM: 256MB SDRAM
Video: RivaTNT2 32MB
Linux: Redhat 8 with kernel 2.4.18-17.8.0

24 is right. The other 8 bits are reserved for alpha channeling.

Double check the HorizSync and VertRefresh settings in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4.

And finally, you might need to recompile the nVidia modules and enable EnableAGPFW and EnableAGPSBA. I think the best way to do that is just to manually edit the os-registry.c file in your nVidia kernel module directory.

Where is the file? You meant after I modofied the file then run another run of the installation steps...?

Default strange compile error with nvidia_kernel sources

Hi

Im trying to compile the nvidia_kernel drivers from tar.gz source on a Mandrake 9 System

The kernel-headers-2-4-18, kernel-sources-2.4.19 and gcc3.2 are installed. I used the rpm files that were on the Mandrake cds. the kernel-header are 2.4.18 insted of 2.4.19 but there are no 2.4.19 kernel-header. is this normal?

/usr/src/linux point to the correct kernel

whenever i type 'make install' as root, the error
'/usr/src/linux/autoconf.h not found' or something like this and the compilation aborts.

as far as i know should the autoconf.h be included in the kernel-sources.
i tried 'find / -name autoconf.h' but it showed nothing.

so what is the problem?

Default Question about monitor under these drivers

Thanks to help in this group, I got these drivers to work with a Quadro4 750 under RH7.3. Thanks for the great help.

Noticed that the monitor seems to be driven quite a bit differently than it is in W2K (it's a dual boot system). All text has a 'shiny' shadow next to it - like either the refresh rate is wrong or the intensity is bad. But with the monitor at the same settings, the screen looks perfect under W2K.

Is this a Linux monigor settings problem (more or less a newbie there) or possibly a driver issue? Thanks. The monitor is a iiyama Visionmaster Pro 512 and it isn't recognized by RedHat but I did put the monitor info in the XF86 config. (Curious that the refresh rate seems to be independent of resolution in X- maybe that's where I need to put in more info.) Can I tell if the card is using the monitor's EDID? Or do I need to enable that? It seems that it should default to that.
