Just updated to this latest driver and at the same time I did a kernel update. Just would like to report that everything works like a charm using 2.6.7-bk20! (twinview, tv-out, framebuffer (vesafb)). Thanks a lot Nvidia!

Default update from 5336 (debian)

Hi!

First it looked like everything was going fine: Having updated via "nvidia-installer --update" I restarted X and had no problems at all, the nvidia-settings GUI worked.
After rebooting though X could not be started anymore and I got the following:

Code:
(II) Module freetype: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
	compiled for 4.3.0.1, module version = 2.0.2
	Module class: XFree86 Font Renderer
	ABI class: XFree86 Font Renderer, version 0.4
(II) Loading font FreeType
(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so

   *** If unresolved symbols were reported above, they might not
   *** be the reason for the server aborting.

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 8.  Server aborting


When reporting a problem related to a server crash, please send
the full server output, not just the last messages.
This can be found in the log file "/var/log/XFree86.0.log".
Please report problems to submit@bugs.debian.org.
The XF86Config (with which it works fine with the old driver) is:

Code:
...
Section "Device"
	Identifier	"Generic Video Card"
	Driver		"nvidia"
	BusID		"PCI:1:0:0"
	Option		"NoDDC" "1"
	Option		"IgnoreEDID" "1"
	Option		"GenerateRTList" "0"
	Option		"OverridePolarity" "1"
	Option 		"NvAGP" "1"
	Option		"DigitalVibrance" "0"
EndSection
...
Did anybody have similar probs? Hope so
Thanks for reading!

@zander:
thanks a million!
Uninstalling 5336, then purging the directories
/usr/lib/tls /usr/lib/nvidida /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions
from anything 5336 related did the trick
After that 6106 installed fine.

again thanks a lot!

Default Re: 1.0-6106 for X86-32 thread

I'm cross-posting to this NVidia list in hopes that someone here can help...

I have been trying to get optimal picture in my mythtv setup using an NVidia GeForce 4 MX440 card for many months now. My problem is smooth playback...it seems to me that optimally, my picture in MythTV should be of comparable quality to my picture straight out of the cable box into the TV. However, I've been struggling w/ motion problems since I
first started working on this nine months ago.

I'm wondering if anyone can share some suggestions or configuration options
that might help. I've read many mails but it seems like there is no central
location for information regarding nvidia cards and tvout w/ MythTV. Some
people are using monitors, some people are using TVs, and there are many
different versions of the drivers. Some people are compiling from source, some
people are using ATRPMS. At this point I'm not quite sure where to turn for
help on this.

Currently this is my setup:

Software:
Fedore Core 1 - latest patches
kernel 2.4.22-1.2197.nptl_51.rhfc1.at (ATRPMS)
Nvidia 6106 - ATRPMS
MythTV 15.1 - ATRPMS
ivtv .9 - ATRPMS

Hardware:
Intel 845G Motherboard w/ Intel P4 2Gig CPU
flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca
cmov pat pse36 clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss ht tm
512 Meg Memory
Hauppauge PVR-250
NVidia GeForce4 MX 440 with AGP8X
Video BIOS: 04.18.20.13.14
Using SVIDEO output to Mitsubishi projection TV (not HDTV)
MAudio Delta DIO-2496

Myth Settings:
Recording profiles set to record at 720x480

X settings:
Tried both 800x600 and 640x480...currently 800x600
All other settings as suggested on wilsonnet setup FAQ

I have never since I started been able to get smooth playback w/o motion blur.
I experience the following problems: non-smooth playback during panning, motion
blur for even things as simple as someone turning their head quickly on the
screen, jumpy motion on stock tickers.

I have read many many things and tried many many different combinations of
options / drivers. I have tried the 4363 drivers w/ the experimental A/V sync,
deinterlacing, jitter reduction and although those things helped, the problem
did not completely go away. I've tried stock kernel, AT kernel, agpgart, nvidia
AGP, nothing seems to be optimal. Any more I think my eyes are bugging out and
my brain is fried trying to remember which combination was the best.

I know that a lot of this is MythTV related b/c watching DVDs in xine results in
MUCH better video performance...but there's still a *tiny* bit of motion blur.
I haven't actually tried to compare to mplayer recently.

Can anyone offer any advice? The only thing that I haven't tried yet is
compiling mythtv myself and using XvMC. No where have I read that this helps -
a lot of people have actually recommended turning it off, but I'm at my wits
end. :-(

Thanks in advance,
Brian

Default Alienware Laptopue Issue ALMOST Solved

I installed the latest drivers (1.0-6106) on my Alienware Area 51m laptop (3.2 Ghz, 1GB, GForce 5600 GO) with Linux. Under the old driver, I locked-up as soon as I tried to startx.. Now, startx, login and doing all X work is just fine.... HOWEVER, I still lockup when logging out.... If I restart or shutdown, no problem! The last error message I see is:

AUDIT: Mon Jul 12 23:17:30 2004: 6314 X: client 4 rejected from local host

The XFree86.0.log and XF86Config is attached...

Many Thanks,

Mike Saverino

Default Gforce 5650 glxgears slow

I have a GForce 5650 Go card with 128MB on a Pentium M 1.4Ghz laptop. I can play Unreal 2004 just find in windowsxp, but when I run it in Linux, it's much more laggy than in windows. Also, when I run Glxgears, my scores are around 230. Other people with the same card get much much higher than that score. My desktop resolution is 1920x1200 with color depth of 24bits. Does anyone know what is making it slow? Thanks in advance.

Default Re: 1.0-6106 for X86-32 thread (kernel 2.6.7)

Hi.

I'm still having problems getting the Nvidia drivers to work with a home made linux kernel.

As per the kernel instructions, here's what I've done:

uncompress sources in /usr/src
ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.6.7 /usr/src/linux
from /usr/src/linux
make O=/tmp/build/kernel2 menuconfig
make O=/tmp/build/kernel2
make O=/tmp/build/kernel2 modules_install install
reboot
setenv MAKEFLAGS "O=/tmp/build/kernel2"
/tmp/Nvidia.blah.blah.blah.run

At this point the installer comes back and says it can't determine the kernel version. Now, uname -a returns the right info, but I guess the installer is looking for /usr/src/linux/.config or something.

The make process comes strait out of the Kernel readme file, so I would assume it's correct. I posted a few messages before that said I tried copying various things back into the source tree and that got the installer to run, but never made a usable module. (bad magic numbers really)

Has anyone else done this and had it work? If so, please post your exact syntax.

Hi to all.. i've installed the new version 6106 of the driver and it's gone great!
I tried TUXRACER, TUXKART and other games and they gone great! The bad flipping screen i had sometimes with 5336 have disappeared and i was really happy. So i tried UNREAL TOURNAMENT 2004 DEMO that was going really great&fast with the old driver, and.... it's slow! Slow to start, slow with presentation and slow loading mission.... :-( what's wrong?!?! i don't know what to do!!! At this time i've uninstalled the 6106 and gone back to 5336.. and UT2004DEMO is fast again!

Here it's my configuration:
P4 3.06GHZ
512 MB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5100 126Mb
Suse 9.1
Kernel 2.6.4-52-smp

and here is the XF86Config Device Section:

Section "Device"
BoardName "GeForce FX Go5100"
BusID "1:0:0"
Driver "nvidia"
Identifier "Device[0]"
Option "NvAGP" "1"
Screen 0
Option "Rotate" "off"
VendorName "NVidia"
EndSection

With NvAGP equal to 2 or 3 my system hang up!!

Could anyone help me?!?!

Thx in advance to all!
Bye

Hi all,
installed the 6106 drivers a few days ago and they work great, but at random occasions KDE just freezes, no keyboard input, just the mouse cursor can be moved - but clicking around has no effect. I can connect through SSH, and top shows X takes about 100% CPU time. If I kill X, the system just hangs there with a blank screen, so it's reset time.

dumps from dmesg -- the last 4 lines seem to come after the freeze, and I only have a mouse connected through USB at that time:
agpgart: Found an AGP 2.0 compliant device at 0000:00:00.0.
agpgart: Putting AGP V2 device at 0000:00:00.0 into 4x mode
agpgart: Putting AGP V2 device at 0000:01:00.0 into 4x mode
agpgart: Found an AGP 2.0 compliant device at 0000:00:00.0.
agpgart: Putting AGP V2 device at 0000:00:00.0 into 4x mode
agpgart: Putting AGP V2 device at 0000:01:00.0 into 4x mode
PCI: Found IRQ 12 for device 0000:02:05.0
usb 1-1: USB disconnect, address 2
PocketPC PDA ttyUSB0: PocketPC PDA converter now disconnected from ttyUSB0
ipaq 1-1:1.0: device disconnected
spurious 8259A interrupt: IRQ7.

and the last dumps in Xorg.log:
SetClientVersion: 0 8
SetClientVersion: 0 8
SetGrabKeysState - disabled
SetGrabKeysState - enabled
SetClientVersion: 0 8
SetGrabKeysState - disabled
SetGrabKeysState - enabled
SetClientVersion: 0 8
SetGrabKeysState - disabled
SetGrabKeysState - enabled


The PC is P3, pretty old MSI MB, GeForce FX5200, Fedora Core 2, 2.6.5-1.358 kernel

Anyone has an idea what I can do?
Thanks in advance!
