Default kernel 2.6.3 - driver 5336 BIG PROBLEMS

Hi there,

I recently upgraded to 2.6.3 kernel and attempted to install the new 5336 driver. After compiling a new interface it installed fine. BUT

Logging into and then out of KDE through GDM and back in (same user) causes the system to HALT no mouse (pointer on screen) and no chance of recovering from this error except trun off at wall and reboot. It can be reproduced flawlessly do the same procudeure as above and CRASH..


Any help would be appreciated.

When I first log in and load proggys it is fine... it only crashes when I log out and back in????

xf86 config represents the FOSS driver details, the only thing I change is nv to nvidia.

Thanks

Can you use the keyboard or switch init modes?, I'd try different nvagp modes if I was you.

Hi there,

I am not too sure what you mean by changing nvagp modes... I have compiled the agpgart support and Nvidia nforce/nforce2 chipset support directly into the kernel.

I have also put agpgart support for the AMD irongate built into the kernel, could this be causing conflicts????

as for the nvagp,
"NvAGP" "integer"
Configure AGP support. Integer argument can be one of:
0 : disable agp
1 : use NVIDIA's internal AGP support, if possible
2 : use AGPGART, if possible
3 : use any agp support (try AGPGART, then NVIDIA's AGP)
Please note that NVIDIA's internal AGP support cannot
work if AGPGART is either statically compiled into your
kernel or is built as a module, but loaded into your
kernel (some distributions load AGPGART into the kernel
at boot up). Default: 3 (the default was 1 until after
1.0-1251).

It is not set as the modes wouldn't change anything seein as the agpgart is loaded into the kernel (statically). Is this the problem straight up, the support for agpgart instead of nvidias internal agp ????

Any help would be appreciated

1. You will not be able to load the nvidia kernel module. You need to make the agpgart support as a module that way that module will unload and the nvidia kernel moudle can get loaded in its place.
