Default GeForce Fx 5959 Ultr and SuSe 9.0 lockup after install Nvidia drv. v1.0-5332 in AMD64

I have a problem with my Nvidia card GF.5950 and AMD64 and Suse 9 Pro. After installing the Nvidia drivers v5332 the screen is black and the computer cannot be shutdown even with ctrl+alt+del. No error has been reported at installation and Log file looks fine to me??? I have downloaded the newest kernel and source code and installed all uptades found online and no error was reported. Am using a MSI motherboard K8T Neo MS-6702 V1.x) ATX. I am enclosing my log files...

I hope someone can help me.

Thanks,

GabXF86Config XFree86.0.log

Did previous drivers work OK?

Not quite. I assume that you are referring to this thread: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=26575

People are having complete hard locks when installing any NVIDIA driver for 32-bit systems, regardless of distro. 5332 is targeted for x86_64 and locked X under SuSE 9.0-x86_64 for me, showing 99.9% CPU for X. In cases where I had a console open (usually remote) I was able to kill -9 the process and work on. I couldn't get X to work with the NVIDIA driver on this system. FC1-x86_64 did work and so does SuSE 9.1-x86_64. The i586 version is still a no go with current 5336 drivers.

Unhappy Re: GeForce Fx 5959 Ultr and SuSe 9.0 lockup after install Nvidia drv. v1.0-5332 in AMD64

My system is new (almost, had WinXP and WinMe stil installed and working) many parts were changed, the video card, motherboard, RAM, HD,case, PS.

Worse of all, I decided to get involved with Suse Linux 9 Pro. I am not familiar with this OS at all, this is almost like a new world to me so please would you explain what you mean by step 8 and 10, 2ndly this my first Linux bath.

I updated the BIOS of my K8T Neo FIS2R (MSI) to v1.4 after reading a lot in the posts. At least now my system uses the drivers v5332 without locking-up but still do not have 3D accel.

I don't know what to do next.

Can someone help?

Firstly, sorry to put people off... the 64 bit drivers have worked on 64 bit systems. It's only when you try 32 bit drivers instead you can run into grief.

If you don't have 3D accel it could be because you don't have the glx module loaded (in XF86Config). Type glxinfo while in an xterm for more debugging info.

its not only a 32 bit issue, i have problems with the 64 bit drivers as well and yes i do know how to config x for nvidia. Its just that i get a garbled screen when i use nvid 64 drivers and a hard lockup in suse 9.0 64 bit.
i have a stepping 0 3000+ which is the dreaded 32 bit driver lockup processor. It manages to lockup on 64 bit to :-)
