It is not completely due to Nvidia drivers, but to your use of them. Again don't specify a vga option at boot and your console will be there. Since you tell that you don't really need console, you don't need the vga option. This works for me with releases 4620 and earlier and for the last 6106 release. I've to accept the fact that between 4620 and 6106 a problem arise which seems to be solved in my two boxes.

It dont say on the box about Linux so dont EXPECT it to work in Linux, besides nvidia designed the CPU not the card, moan to the manufacturer.

I don't want the console during usage of my computer, but I do want framebuffer to work at boot-up for bootsplash...

Nope. It doesn't say Windows either. My box says:
Quote:
System Requirements
Intel/AMD/Other Compatible CPUs
One available AGP slot
64MB System Memory
CD-ROM drive
I've got all that. And I've got Linux installed. But it doesn't say anywhere I shoulnd't have that.

And besides, it doesn't make any sense to work on increasing performance and user friendliness as long as there still are some major problems which cause instability on a lot of systems, now does it?

And like I said before, I am not demanding any immediate fix for this. I've been waiting for quite some time, I can wait some more time. What I would like is some word about this from anyone working on the Linux drivers. What exactly the problem is, if they're working on it at all, what the progress is, stuff like that.
Information now and then can keep the customer satisfied...

Unhappy Still experiencing a black bar in non-native modes, as in the whole 5xxx series

Secondary video modes still don't work properly on my notebook Toshiba 1410-303, equipped with a GeForce4 Go.
As I stated many tames elsewhere on this forum, the problem is as follow: my panel is one of those providing wrong edid values. Workarouns such as "Ignore EDID" and those edid-related module options used to work for all the 4xxx series. They are broken since 5xxx and still are, but *only* for non-native modes (that is, non-1024x768 modes in my case).
Come on, it used to work: it shouldn't be so difficult to restore the previous behaviour...

Allright, this is my first post here so hi to everyone and long live nvidia!

In fact I just got this GFFX 5700 Ultra that I won at a LAN party and believe it or not it's my first *EVER* nvidia card. I was glad I won the card because I've heard so many good thing about the quality of nvidia *linux* driver. So, of course, I proceeded immediately by removing the 9600 pro out of my linux box along with the excuse of a driver that came with it. (seriously it was really *that* bad) Put in the 5700 Ultra, install driver, runs like a charm!! I even have a control panel that actually works!! (wut!) Anyhow I'm runing some sort of slackware 9.1 (with a bunch of 10.0 packages) with xfree86 4.3.3 and a custom compiled 2.6.7 kernel (the vanilla one from kernel.org) on an intel 875p board. All my games work perfectly and DO NOT CRASH! (unlike the previous ATi BS) my only concern is that in quake3 when I walk up to a mirror or some teleportation door (like the one in the first DM level) my frame rates drop from around 300 to a ridiculous 30 or 20... wtf mate? does anybody have the same problem? Also if this was already brought up and answered I'm sorry for the repost... but this thread is just too long for me to bother reading it in it's entirety!

Default Re: 1.0-6106 for X86-32 thread Lost NVAGP support

I had 5336 running under Fedora Core 2 custom (8k stack) 2.6.7 kernel.
I installed 6106, up2dated the kernel to Fedora supplied 2.6.6 and up2dated xorg.
Ut2004 became unplayable. I couldn't figure out the problem until I did cat/proc/drivers/nvidia/agp/status and saw it was disabled. I looked at xorg.conf and I had option nvagp set to 1 to use nvidia agp. I had this setup for a long time.
I commented out the line and restarted X and ut2004 runs fine! glxgears went from 6000 (with agp disabled) to 8900
My feedback to NVIDIA is to mention looking for agp problems more prominently in the readme and maybe to put in the nvidia-settings display info on agp.
I wonder why the ability to use internal nvagp stopped working?

It even gets worse. I just tried to play a DVD-movie on my TV-out and the whole machine freezes. I tried other DVD's and they all had the same problem.
I can only play DVD's on my CRT-monitor with twinview disabled... How annoying

@olddoc: NvAGP won't initialize when Linux AGPGART is present (i.e. when it was built into the kernel or when agpgart.ko is loaded).

cant get nvidia 1.0-6106 going with linux 2.6.7, i get the same effect every time i start X. I got this same behaviour with the prior driver on anything after 2.6.6-mm1. Tryed disable regparm and 4stacks, tryed to load nvagp up on my config and still cant do.

I get rubbish random chars on black console and the machine freezes right there
i notice X is running and not a single ERROR line gets announced on xlog

running on slack-current right now with a fx5200 and amd1400

yep the same here... I dont want to PAN on the TV 'cause I have 1280x1024 screen and 1024x768 CRT. (now even worse 800x600)

Even that I have correct metamodes set when I try to switch them with
Ctrl/Alt/+ Ctrl/Alt/- this has no effect on the CRT (twinview)

I have 15 nvidia cards on my machines... some are servers... if there is
other card that support good TV-out probably my next buy will be it..

Does someone know how ATI behaves under linux.?

I dont play games under linux so I dont care about the about the GL so much.. probably after 1-2 years when there is more RTS-es.
What I need is stable 2d and good tv-out support...

my experience with the closed source ati drivers is rea;;y bad... 2d, 3d and tv-out However the open source drivers for cards like r100 and r200 should work but I don't think tv-out is that good (I'm not even sure if it is supported...). I advice you to stick with nvidia at least till ati begins to support linux for real. But right now nvidia is the best choise for linux users...
