What does modprobe NVdriver as root tell you? Anything? If not, try to start X again.

I`ve got same problem last time my X doesn`t load.
My `modeprobe` says that module can taint kernel but when I
load lsmod after that NVdriver is unused. I type startx and my X server and system are halted black screen or unidentified symbols.

If you go back to 2960 (kernel and GLX) does that help? Or are you doing that already?

Using the 3123 GLX with the 2960 kernel driver might give the errors you've said you're getting.

I have allready done that(2960 kernel and GLX). I have just upgraded to Mandrake 9.0 and the 3123 drivers still hang my PC. should i downgrade to a even lower version than 2960(Since i have a relatively old card)? Input on this would be much apreciated.

I'm having exactly the same issues. I'm trying to turn an Nforce PC into an Xterminal, booting off the network. When I boot off the local disk, everything works fine:

(**) NVIDIA(0): Ignoring EDIDs
(--) NVIDIA(0): Linear framebuffer at 0xF0000000
(--) NVIDIA(0): MMIO registers at 0xEC000000
(--) NVIDIA(0): VideoRAM: 32768 kBytes


but when I boot off the network, with the same XF86Config, etc. I get errors at the same point where the driver reads the available video memory:

(**) NVIDIA(0): Ignoring EDIDs
(--) NVIDIA(0): Linear framebuffer at 0xF0000000
(--) NVIDIA(0): MMIO registers at 0xEC000000
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVdriver kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***


Who knows?

I meant to add that the NVdriver modules loads without any issues, just when it is initialized by XFree86 is where the problems happen.

When you boot off the network, are you using the same /etc/modules.conf file? You should be...

Also, when you boot off the network, are you using the same init scripts (is everything in /etc/rc.d/init.d the same)? Are you passing the same options on the kernel command line from your bootloader? (I'm actually not quite sure how "booting off the network" works, but I would assume there's a way to pass options to your kernel, right?)

I found the problem. I didn't create all the devices. I had created nvidia1 through 7, but didn't make nvidia0. It works fine now.

So for c00lr4c3r, I would suggest he rerun the NVIDIA_kernel make install again as root and make sure everything completes. There is a shell script that is supposed to execute in make install that creates all the /dev/nvidia* files.

As far as booting off the network, I used pxelinux, tftp, and dhcp services. Pxelinux gets the kernel and a small filesystem with initrd. I have been fooling around with this project for a long time, and getting the Nforce modules to work was easy in comparison to the rest! javascript:smilie(%27%27)

Thanx to all for helping me out. I'm happy to say that i've solved the problem now that i have upgraded to Mandrake 9. I'm running the 2960 drivers naw without any problems but could use more optimized drivers Guess i have to wait for the next driver release...

How do you manually make those dev's or how do you run the script?? I have the same problem with My NVidia driver and amm hoping that may fix it....
