P.S. Say, did I read somewhere in this thread that the 4336 driver works with 2.6*
kernels? If so I may roll back (waaay back) to it. Tv-out worked marvelous in the
4*** series of drivers.

Yes it works with kernel 2.6, you can find it at http://www.minion.de

release 4620 works very well too, you find it at the same URL

If you get any feedback to your follow-up mail, can you please post it in here? I don't mind waiting another driver release as long as I've got some assurance that they're actually working on the issue. \
If I don't get that assurance, well.. I'll just... err... nothing much I can do . I will just be a little bit disappointed.

Default 6106 FC 2.90 (development) with GCC 2.4 and kernel 2.6.6 (vanilla) problems

Hi, I've just upgraded FC2 to FC2.90 development, 1484 packages yummed and with gcc 3.4 and kernel 2.6.6 the nvidia driver wont run giving insmod errors 'incorrect module format'

I'm just about to rebuild my kernel using gcc 3.4 and I'll try and re-run the installer once done.

--- Fix found

Rebuilt my kernel with gcc 3.4, got kernel panics caused by;
Processor type and features
[ ] Allocate 3rd-level pagetables from highmem

switched that off and rebuilt, re-installed the nvidia driver all works fine.

Hello,

since I've installe the new kernel update 2.6.5-7.95 (kernel parameter vidio=rivafbff)
I can not longer use the nvidia driver (modeprobe nvidia is o.k.!). After startx I get a
"black screen". I can neither kill the X-Server nor shutdown the system!!!
This are the messages from /var/log/warn:
kernel: nvidia: no version for "struct_module" found: kernel tainted.
kernel: nvidia: unsupported module, tainting kernel.
kernel: nvidia: module license 'NVIDIA' taints kernel.
kernel: NVRM: loading NVIDIA Linux x86 NVIDIA Kernel Module 1.0-6106

Hello!
I was able to investigate and to solve the problem! First I booted the system with
"FAILSAVE" option and configured the XF86config as described (thanks to zot71!!!).
It was no problem to start the X server. After booting the system with "normal"
kernel parmaters - same behavior as bevor!
All you need is a simple "acpi=off"
Best greetings
Mathias

You have to understand that Nvidia people have to adapt permanently to these evolutions instaed of fine tunig a frozen system.

And I don't work for Nvidia nor for Gates.

Right, on your advice I tried 4620. It doesn't fix my problems either. The console is STILL garbled which I find very annoying. This even happens when not using TwinView or anything uncommon.

I just tried it on another machine(GF4 MX 440) with a fresh Mandrakelinux 10.0 Official installation, and both 6106 and 4620 do not work properly.

Yup I get that too. Haven't had time to investigate. I reinstalled 5336 instead since 6106 apparently has problems with 1024x768 (tv/out) as well.

Default Re: 1.0-6106 for X86-32 thread

All in all, thanks to NVIDIA for getting this one out :-)

I am, however having some issues compiling my GL apps against the new libGL.so library. I haven't seen any posts about this, but if it's already been brought up then I do apologise (and ask that someone could point me to where it has been mentioned ;-) When I try to link, I get a bunch of errors of this form:

/usr/lib/libglut.so: undefined reference to 'glBegin@LIBGL'

This also happens with a bunch of other libraries on my system that have been compiled against GL (for example, the GL components of wxWidgets).

I've tried copying the latest GL headers from /usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/include and reocmpiling GLUT, but it doesn't seem to help: I still get linking errors from GLUT.

It looks kinda like a name mangling issue of sorts, but I have no idea how to fix it. Here's some dump-data from nm and objdump though:

Old driver (53.36):
carl@cyclops:/tmp$ nm -D /usr/lib/libGL.so
00000000 A LIBGL
U XAddToExtensionList
U XCloseDisplay
U XCreateGC
U XCreatePixmap
U XDrawString16
U XEHeadOfExtensionList
U XFillRectangle
U XFindOnExtensionList
U XFlush
U XFree
...

New driver (61.06)
carl@cyclops:/tmp$ nm -D /usr/lib/libGL.so
U XAddToExtensionList
U XCloseDisplay
U XCreateGC
U XCreatePixmap
U XDrawString16
U XEHeadOfExtensionList
U XFillRectangle
U XFindOnExtensionList
U XFlush
U XFree
...

notice that the "A" symbol ("LIBGL") that was present in the old driver is now missing in the new one.

If I use objdump, I get a similar kind-of read-out:

Old driver (53.36):
carl@cyclops:/tmp$ objdump --dynamic-syms /usr/lib/libGL.so

000623bc g DF .writetext 00000000 Base glTexSubImage3D

Notice, here, the lines for glTexSubImage3D: the old library also has a "LIBGL" entry on that line, whilst the new driver has a "Base" entry. I have no idea what these refer to though; I haven't been able to find any good docs describing what the objdump output really means!

If anyone has any good ideas on why this is happening & how I can fix it, please let me know. Until then, I've got to use 53.36 for the sake of compiling my apps (which I do all the time as part of my livelihood!)

For the record, I'm using GCC3.3. Please let me know if any other info is needed.

Cheers!

Carl

Default Re: 1.0-6106 for X86-32 thread

Can one of the nvidia folks recommend a good set of settings (XF86Config as well as nvidia-settings) for playing of live TV (or DVD) to TVOut? Currently it is difficult to get a smooth output without motion blur. Even using mplayer or xine, I see some motion blur although my main concern is MythTv.

Hardware: P4 2Gig (Intel 845G), NVidia GeForce4 MX 440 w/ 8xAGP
Fedora Core 1, 6106 Drivers

Thanks much!
Brian
