Default Re: 1.0-6106 for X86-32 thread

hello, i'm running a Mandrake 10.0
I use the kernel 2.6.7-2 (kernel-2.6.7.2mdk-1-1mdk.i586.rpm and kernel-source-2.6.7-2mdk.i586.rpm)
I can't install the 1.0-6106 driver

here is the nvidia-installer.log :

@patbier: check the output of 'dmesg' after the failed installation attempt, chances are the module loader rejected the module due to a version magic mismatch.

I think the drivers are working fine.
I have some Problems in Fedrora Core 2 with Segfaults , but the Problems occure even with the standard nv-driver.

Posted it on bugzilla.

Default 6106 hangs X on blank screen with cpu usage maxed out.

I'm running Fedora 2, with offical kernel 2.6.6-1.435.2.3, xorg-x11-6.7.0-2. Got a Quadra 2 in a SIS650 mobo. Just tried to install the 1.0-6106 drivers. Grabbed the matching kernel-sourcecode package to build kernel interface.

When I start X, I get a quick flicker on the screen, then black. Can't switch to console (ctrl+alt+f1), however I can ssh in from another machine and kill X. If I run top, X is maxing out cpu time.

Kernel modules loads fine; no errors in dmesg and cat /proc/drivers/nvidia/agp/* dumps sensible stuff. Xorg.0.log contains no errors, gets as far as:-

(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1600x1200"

Couple of warnings:-
(WW) Open APM failed (/dev/apm_bios) (No such device)
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Failure reading EDID parameters for display device CRT-0

Have tried lower resolutions too and colour depths. Tried loosing the glx X module too (and no, I'm not loading GLcore or dri X modules).
Have tried different NvAGP options (although I think AGPGART is compiled into the kernel so couldn't use option 1). Even tried disabling AGP completely. Also tried disabling AGP fast writes:-

options nvidia NVreg_EnableAGPFW=0

Tried running the testgart app before running X, as someone mentioned early on this thread. Ran through tests fine, X still hung afterwards.

I'm at a complete loss of what to try next. The default 'nv' X driver works fine and the card runs fine under Windowz 2k.

My latest kernel is 459 (uniproc). If you run into trouble you may want to have a look on http://people.redhat.com/arjanv/2.6/ for a newer one. The latest SMP kernel I can see right now is kernel-smp-2.6.7-1.459.i686.rpm

and its not as if theres an easy way to change resolutions too much editing
not even worth my time

i guess u can tell am not happy about this
same here
also didnt saw any better performance, so i go back to previous driver

Default Re: 1.0-6106 for X86-32 thread

For me it is the same problem as Arthur's.

I've installed Fedora Core new with standard options. Updated the kernel to 2.6.6-435.2.3 and installed the new nvidia driver.

After updating the xorg.conf file and restarting the x server - no reaction - just a black screen and the monitor is not initiated.

In the log files everything is fine - it ends up with (II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1024x768"

The only error occured was during installation of the nvidia driver - i got a warning to rivafb module activated in the kernel. But even with a new compiled kernel without rivafb support the same picture.

I hope for a fast solution or have anybody solved this problem?

Hardware: NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti4600 NV25 with EIZO FlexScan L557 on a Athlon XP 2500+

I got the same prob as Arthur and MHeitmann62 with the 2.6.6-435.2.3 kernel. The drivers do work however on the 2.6.5-1.358 kernel.?? A quick solution would be great.
I am running NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti4800 SE, Asus A7N8X Deluxe, Athlon XP 2800+

What sound cards are the people experiencing lockup problems using? This doesn't apply to the one(s) not able to get X running at all, but this may help the others. I am running FC2 (fully updated) on a Tyan Thunder K7 (2.14 BIOS) with a pair of Athlon MP2800+, 1G Kingston CL2.5 and a Ti4600 (to an NEC MultiSync FE950+). I was seeing occasional lockups when exiting or changing settings in some OpenGL software. I upgraded from my older SB Live! 5.1 to an Audigy 2 ZS, and the problem has gone away. The kernel is still 2.6.6-1.435.2.3smp with the new driver Nvidia has provided. Something to think about, anyway.

Default 720x576 ?!

hi,

with the 6106 driver my custom mode for 720x576 is no longer accepted for TV Out - it worked with the previous one (5336). XFree86.log.0 tells me it's "Not a valid TV Mode" ... hell, it is !

this is of special interest for all people with DVB cards which have no hardware mpeg decoder - decoding the mpeg AND scaling it up to 800x600 and then letting it be re-downscaled to 720x576 by the chrontel/whatever is just wasting cpu/gpu cycles, with no benefit.

my card is a geforce II MX 200 with a chrontel 7007.

is there any known workaround to this 'uber intelligence' of the driver?

so long it's going to be 5336 for me again...

(**) NVIDIA(0): Validated modes for display device TV-0:
(**) NVIDIA(0): Default mode "800x600": 40.0 MHz, 37.9 kHz, 60.3 Hz
(**) NVIDIA(0): Default mode "640x480": 25.2 MHz, 31.5 kHz, 60.0 Hz
(II) NVIDIA(0): Virtual screen size determined to be 800 x 600

I got the same problem, WE WANT 1024X768 TVOUT!
I have also got the same problem with 6106 for X86 nvidia driver for GeForec 440 MX on Fedora Core 2 with latest official kernel 2.6.6-1.435.2.3.
We want this fixed from nvidia.Nvidia open your source code please.....
