Verify that you have no shell environment variables set to control it (you most likely would have done this yourself; an installer should not have). The variable that controls FSAA is:
__GL_FSAA_MODE

With the new settings control its not necessary, but I've had this in my bashrc for some time.

__GL_FSAA_MODE=0


The correct values for your GeForce 2 card are:

__GL_FSAA_MODE GeForce, GeForce2, Quadro, and Quadro2 Pro
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
0 FSAA disabled
1 FSAA disabled
2 FSAA disabled
3 1.5 x 1.5 Supersampling
4 2 x 2 Supersampling
5 FSAA disabled
6 FSAA disabled
7 FSAA disabled

FSAA on a Geforce2 MX400, you must be joking, I remember FSAA being rather bad on that card never mind newer games now.

My bashrc doesn't have that entry either, so I'm safe there too. It's weird cause like I said before, with the driver I currently use (53.36) I do not have that problem but when I revert to the 46.20 it give me that problem, can it be my kernel? Cause at some point I've already use that driver on old kernel (2.6.0 and 2.6.1) and it was working good.

Thanks guys for the feedback

@SuLinUX: don't worry I'm not trying to use it, I'm trying to get rid of it when I use the 46.20 driver, it seems to get on by itself and don't know where to shut it off, look at my earlier post with the link and take a look at the link you'll see what I mean.

Damn the 4620 driver dont work with this 2.6.4 rpm, the 5336 is pretty poor compared to the 4620.

No, to use the 46.20 with a 2.6.x kernel you would have to patch it. See www.minion.de. The patched version built for me on 2.6.3, but I can't speak to 2.6.4.

Thats what I'm saying, the 4620 driver worked fine with 2.6.3 but this 2.6.4 it just dont compile Like I said above.

Probably stupid question, but do you have modules enabled in kernel konfig?

There can be no way that modules are disabled because the 5336 compiles fine, also other modules load up fine as well and without that option other devices would fail.

Just tried to install 46.20 @ Gentoo development-sources 2.6.4 - only one problem - the nvidia.ko was placed in kernel/video but not in video. After placing it where it should be - no problems at all.

I've used http://www.sh.nu/download/nvidia/lin...-4620-pkg0.run installer.

Some benchmarks (GF5900XT):
Code:
                                      53.36                                        46.20
ut2004 demo            90avg moving/ 120 not moving                     100+ m / 200 n.m
quake 3  four demo              263.3 avg                                  276.1 avg
glxgears                         6200 avg                                        6620 avg
Status: Enabled
Driver: AGPGART
AGP Rate: 8x
Fast Writes: Enabled
SBA: Enabled

PS. Differences with 46.20 in quake3 6 in-a-row tests were smaller than with 5336. Only drawbacks for 46.20 are that card is identified as NV35 and the feeling that glxinfo gives less information ( may be less features - which should be considered normal ). I'm seeng benefits in WineX too, so for now will be using 46.20.

Regards.

So it could be that it compiles the driver but does not load the nvidia module. I using a experimental SuSE rpm and the 2.6.3 rpm worked fine with the 4620.

Nope- IMHO you failed to compile module at all according to your log. What I've meant is that nvidia.ko was placed in /lib/modules/2.6.4/kernel/drivers/video instead in /lib/modules/2.6.4/video which leads to : X loads wrong nvidia.ko ( 53.36 in my case ) and of course X didn't start at all. I'm assuming that you're rebuilding rpm from src.rpm, which seems to be broken for your case. Try with installer - it should remove rpms, compile module ( which you should check where is placed, and place it to the right place if needed ). If needed check files and remove 53.36 remains manualy.

Regards.
