Dissapointed again, the 1007 BIOS made no difference. Exactly what are we meant to do? I've been waiting 2 months now for a fix from either Asus or Nvidia without. You are all in the same boat but probably not as long as me

If I change mainboards to an MSI board I will be losing features and stability. Is it worth the wait?

Yeah =(
No difference i am also pulling my hairs out i want my 3D support also.
But i will wait, cause i have a bad experience with the MSI boards.
I would recommend just to wait for the new Nvidia Drivers.

While it is a bit testy I will wait. I agree with your comments on MSI hardware. I even emailed Asus about this but they didn't want to know as per usual; great hardware, bad support

Default Re: 32bit drivers on Asus K8V

i just got my new hardware two days ago, and played ut2004 just fine with it. but then i made the mistake of upgrading my bios to be able to use the 'Cool'n'Quiet' feature with cpudyn in linux.

after the bios upgrade, modprobe nvidia locked up my system.

i'm thinking of flashing my bios with old bioses now and modprobe with each of them and see if it works.

*update* flashing my bios to 1.1 did the trick - nvidia works fine, though now i no longer can use cool'n'quiet with cpudyn, but that's a trade i'm willing to make.

1.1? All the version are 4 digits. What BIOS version are you referring to and is this relating to the Asus K8V or another board?

Just a quick "me too" here. Machine hard locks right after inserting the nvidia module. My specs:

Motherboard ASUS K8V

BTW, for the time being I can live with the free nv driver from
XFree86, but I really hope that Nvidia will sort this out soon.

Default Re: 32bit drivers on Asus K8V

Hmm got a similar problem.
I had the nVidia 5336 drivers working without any problems running on my K8V SE Deluxe (AMD64 3200+, Debian unstable, nVidia card FX5700 256 MB) on Debian patched kernel 2.6.6, gcc 3.3.3)

Yesterday the main-board was replaced (because somehow, after flashing this bord with ASUSUpdate, under Windoze, yes It's stupid I know, the bios flashing completly-crashed ).
I also had the memory upgraded to 1 Gbyte.

So board replaced and memory upgraded to 1 Gbyte and booting the exact same kernel now freezes at the moment the nVidia driver. (or X11/nVidia) is loaded

To solve this I tried:
- To re-install the nVidia drivers with the nVidia install script => system locks up just after compiling and inserting the nvidia kernel driver (before the glx part).
- using the Debian nVidia install (hmm very nice install, why didn't I use this before)
- recompiling the kernel
- looking for bios settings
- compiling a 2.6.5 kernel + nvidia drivers
- many reboots, and lock-ups (at the moment the nvidia kernel module loads), very frustrating for a Linux user...

Just for checking I booted my Windoze XP partition, no problems at all (nice for Bill, but I want to play ut2004 on Linux !!)
Still, after rethinking, only the mainboard and memory are replaced so it should be something to do with the main-board or bios version.
When I find the solution I w'll post it, but for now if someone has any tip's ?

Can you show us whats in your /proc/cpuinfo. If its something to do with BIOS I could downgrade it to see whats happening but I suspect you've got an older CPU with a newer BIOS now. Thanks in advance

Default Re: 32bit drivers on Asus K8V

I don't know how you got it going in the first place, very odd. If the memory and mainboard were replaced and its still using a 1001 bios then could it be the RAM or maybe revision of the mainboard?

Could you please tell us the revision of your mainboard, found close to where the Asus logo is printed on the board between the PCI slots. Mine for example is Rev 1.12. Can you also remove the extra memory and see if that does anything. If there is a workaround I wanna know what it is!

Now that I've had some time to read the total story, I understand it could be CPU/memory/nvidia drivers related (the CPU's tested with stepping 10 will not work with the current Linux nvidia drivers).

What I don't understand is that (as far as I know) the processor has not been replaced only the mainboard and the memory (and the nvidia drivers did work on the old board, with this CPU)
But ... with other memory, sorry did forget to mention, the 512 Mbyte on the old board was replaced because of (minor) memory errors found with a memory test.
Hmm still looks CPU/memory/nvidia related.....

ok, will try tomorrow (I'm on a europian timezone %) I'm thinking about removing one of the 512 Mb memory banks.
Oh the revision of the ASUS K8V SE Deluxe MB is 1.12 ...
What the hack I'll ripp it out now, can't sleep anyway if I don't have tried it

Default Re: 32bit drivers on Asus K8V

close but no ..
I tested my 2.6.6 kernel with the 5336 nvidia drivers (start up in single user mode and run the standard nvidia install script) all tests did lock-up my system at the moment the nvidia kernel-module was inserted (before the glx part).
The following memory configurations I have tested:
- 1 Gbyte: bank 2 and 3
- 512 MB: bank 1
- 512 MB: bank 2
- 1 Gbyte: bank 1 and 2
(memory: CORSAIR Value Select VS512MB400)

So I'm wondering what the old Mainboard revision was, will phone the computerstore tomorrow (maybe they still have that old board).
