Default getting closer

i did some experimenting with resolutions and stuff like that, thinking that was the problem, but seeing as how glxgears will not run, and that direct rendering is disabled, i think my solution can be found with the above/recent information.
any ideas?
thanks!

The /usr/X11R6/lib/tls libraries are installed by the XFree86-Mesa-libGL package, and should really be removed prior to installing the nVidia driver and openGL libraries. If you do so, this conflict is dealt with, however you can also rename or move the files so that they cannot be found. Doing so will make sure they are not loaded, but the nVidia libs will be loaded instead.

Either remove Mesa, (rpm --nodeps -e XFree86-Mesa-libGL) or move / unlink the files inside the tls directory. You are simply naming them anything but what they are now, append an -mesainmyway to it or something.

Default fixed it!

yea, there were two files in the directory, one with a little check mark (i figured that meant it was the one in us). one was labeled as 1.0 and the other as 1.0.2, so i just removed the 1.0, and everything seemed to be running fine, and ET ran like a charm.
thanks! maybe this will also solve some other peoples problems.

Default WORKS GREAT!

Works great for me...
The install is the same, but I get the nice panel that I can use...

I checked my FPS before and after.
Before I had: 220-250FPS
Now I have: 280-320FPS

Running SuSE 9.0 with Gefore2 MX 100/200 AMD Athalon 1800+


This is so cool...

Hello,
I have been following this thread because I am going to build a new system next year with an ASUS A7N8X-Deluxe, XP 2500+, 512 and FX5600 vcard. I saw Eugenes post for FPS I assume in glxgears. This seems slow. Current system:

ABIT KT7A 1g
384

video card info via nvclock -i:

-- General info --
Card: nVidia Geforce 2 MX 100/200
PCI id: 0x111
GPU speed: 119.913 MHz
Bustype: AGP

-- Memory info --
Amount: 64 MB
Type: 128 bit SDR
Speed: 119.913 MHz

-- AGP info --
Status: Enabled
Rate: 4X
AGP rates: 1X 2X 4X
Fast Writes: Disabled
SBA: Unsupported

gears output, smallest screen:
1104 frames in 5.0 seconds = 220.800 FPS
1233 frames in 5.0 seconds = 246.600 FPS
1263 frames in 5.0 seconds = 252.600 FPS
1276 frames in 5.0 seconds = 255.200 FPS
1275 frames in 5.0 seconds = 255.000 FPS
1301 frames in 5.0 seconds = 260.200 FPS

How much will the FPS increase with my new system and the current driver 4620? My current driver is 3123 that came with mdk9.0. Am I missing something, or are my stats correct?

TIA

Your FPS will drastically increase. With my Geforce4 Ti4200 card and 2600+ AthlonXP (barton core) CPU running at 3200+ speed, I get about 3500fps with glxgears. I think an 5600 will get even more.

Default Does latest beta support 'rotate'?

Just got a new Dell 19" LCD that is 'rotatable' to portrait mode. Unfortunately, apparantly, the current nvidia release driver does not support the X11 rotate feature.

Anybody know if 'rotate' is supported in the beta?

You mean the alpha? the release is a beta...

It was regarding recommending beta to beginners, i know every noob like yourself think he is 1337 h4x0r but the reality is that unless you are developing or contributing to it you should leave it alone...

AND i have apologized to his post as i mistook it for a recommendation instead of an instruction...

I'm sorry, but i have no pity for fools...

bye...

for the record I can tell you floam is quite the opposite

Default Kernel header files error

Hello,

I recently upgraded Redhat AS 2.1 kernel to the latest kernel. After that I reinstalled the nvidia driver and I got this error message:

'Unable to find the kernel header files for the currently running kernel. Please make sure you have installed the kernel header files for your kernel, on the Redhat systems, for example, be sure you have the 'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct kernel header files installed, you may specify the kernel include path with the '--kernel-include-path' commandline option.

Please assist. Thank you in advance.

Usually on RH there's a couple of ways to have things not linked up or installed right.

** be sure you're running the kernel you think:

$uname -r

will tell you.

Here's what the *nv*.run install file is probably looking for:
1) /lib/modules/{current kernel version}/build (which is a symlink to /usr/src/{current kernel source).
or
2) /usr/src/linux{`uname -r`} (just the path to your kernel source)

Here's a few things to try:
1) make sure you've got what you should have installed. I think there could be seperate kernel packages in RH so do this:
"$rpm -qa | grep kernel"
and see that kernel-source is one and kernel-headers is possibly another. Maybe only source is needed because RH has strange ways at times. At least one is needed.
2) If the symlink in /lib/modules/{kernel version} is wrong, then fix it.
"$cd /lib/modules/{kernel version}"
"$ls -l build" and it should probably look like this
build -> /usr/src/linux{kernel-version} and kernel-version has to be the same as the running kernel
if it's not then
"rm build"
"ln -s /usr/src/linux{kernel-version} ./build


And if that all sounds insane just try the parts where you show the info and ask questions about it. g/l

Default version number??

What is with the version number?
Why is it 4620> I thought this was an older driver.Shouldn't the numbers go up instead of down.


Works great and I did the normal XF86Config tweaking easily in a minute.
The new driver 5328 I couldn't get to work after about 2 days.

280,000 fps in full screen with gkxgears???
can this be right?
