Well I'm having problems with setting up twinview with this driver. I recently bought new comp: ASUS K8V, AMD64, nVidia GeForce4 MX440, Samsung 710N LCD

I have installed fresh FC2 x86_64 on this computer. By default, FC2 loaded generic nv driver. rivafb wasn't loaded at any time.

I connected my graphics card to LCD and to TV using TV-Out. Graphic card works fine when not in twinview mode, using only Samsung LCD. After I have added following lines to xorg.conf file:
Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce 4 MX440"
Option "TwinView" "1"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT, TV"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
Option "MetaModes" "CRT:1024x768,TV:NULL;CRT:NULL,TV:800x600"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "RightOf"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-G"
Option "TVOutFormat" "COMPOSITE"
EndSection

Now, after rebooting, there was no picture at all either on LCD and TV. On pressed CTRL,ALT,+ I get picture on TV, but none on LCD. On CTRL,ALT,- again no pictures at all. So first metamode is not working.

Without twinview I get excellent picture on LCD. GL works good.

Before this comp I had P4 with GeForce2 MX. With this configuration everything worked 100%.

Any ideas what could be wrong.

These drivers, give screen corruption and random video out lock ups (machine continues to run underneath, but get invalid modeline jittering on montior, or just a modeswitch and then a blank screen.) The X Logs look normal and the driver and system seem to think they are going fine. Have tried ignore edid's but no luck. And also specifying kernel include path at compilation... No Joy. The strange thing is that they worked fine the first time I built them (I had Vesafb compiled into kernel at first, but I had to pass video=vesafb=off (which then left a blank screen through startup) And they worked then. (Well The machine crashed, after 5 mins but I think it was unrelated).

I think this may be a problem with new agpgart functionality in the kernel, normally vesafb and the driver work together hapilly obviously not the case here.

Am Running latest rc4 2.6.8 kernel with mm patches. Going to rebuild kernel to try some things.

Tried installing this package. It doesn't work correctly on Debian unstable AMD64 port. It did manage to install the 2d driver, and I am using that with TwinView on two DVI LCDs. No problem there. But the GL libraries were not installed. The installer did, unfortunatley, manage to uninstall my old GL libraries, so now I just don't have any GL at all.

Hello Noid,

Not sure, but maybe this can help getting GL working (for Debian nVidia AMD64 install):

Default Re: 1.0-6111 for Linux X86-64 Released

I'm having difficulties getting two monitors working on a new computer I've just purchase. The system is running Fedora core 2 with full updates. The kernel is 2.6.8-1.521. The motherboard is an Asus KV8 Deluxe with an AMD64 chip. The graphics card is a GeForce FX 5200. My monitors are two identical BenQ 17" LCD's.

The problem is that I can attach 1 monitor and things work quite well. When I attach 2 (and modify the Xorg.conf file according to Appendix R), there is a bit of flashing of information on both screens (like the Nvidia splash screen), but the screens are blanked and nothing stays visible. I can see an "X" to indicate the cursor position on my left screen, while the right screen is black.

I've attached the xorg.conf and Xorg.0.log file with the hope that someone with a big brain out there can tell me what's going on.

I've tried backing down to the previous version of Nvidia drivers for this architecture, but it doesn't help.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Please ignore my post above. The problem turned out to be related to a bad monitor.'

Default Kernels newer than 2.6.8 need this patch to compile on AMD64

There is a Nvidia kernel module problem with kernels later than 2.6.8.1
it is easily fixed... It? a change in the PM_SAVE_STATE being removed or
functionality swallowed. From newer kernels. The nvidia installer uses
it for a little used power save. This is a quick dirty fix.

This is tested with 6111 and 6110 for amd64

Extract the nvidia.run package with -x option, then edit <nvidia
source>/usr/src/nv/nv.c

switch (state)
{
/* PM_SAVE_STATE is no longer defined in kernels > 2.6.8 needed
to compile nvidia module so we nuke it.
case PM_SAVE_STATE:
nv_printf(NV_DBG_INFO, "NVRM: ACPI: received standby
event\n");
status = rm_power_management(nv, 0, NV_PM_ACPI_STANDBY);
break; */


Kind regards

Default Re: 1.0-6111 for Linux X86-64 Released

I have a K8V with this video card:
"VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV11 [GeForce2 MX/MX 400] (rev 178)."

When I make the 6111 (or the 5332) x86_64 driver under linux 2.6.8.1, I always get this when trying to insmod nvidia.ko:

nvidia: Unknown symbol dma_map_sg
nvidia: Unknown symbol dma_unmap_sg

As far as I can tell, these symbols are in my System.map file for this kernel.

Any clues?

Exclamation Re: 1.0-6111 for Linux X86-64 Released

I think I might just run into same problem as you, but not yet.

I have same GeForce Card & OS as you but a GigaByte motherboard.

Just share some info with you:

Before FC2 I had RedHat9, and previous version of Nvidia driver x86-1.0-5336, and I managed to get TwinView going on properly. There were a lot of info I was able to find on web, I followed them and got things working.

These info included instructions to edit the xorg.conf file.

Now I have just reinstalled the RH9 to FC2-x86-32, but not yet the Nvidia driver & TwinView.

Currently I have another newer system in FC2-x86-64, but the GeForce card inside has no TwinView, it is FX5400, running 6111 driver OK. Except that I am looking for the same info which will tell me how to edit xorg.conf to get various resolution.

I also want to be able to turn off the nVidia Splash Screen which kept coming out full screen when I logout & change user login. This was avaliable in those old info which I read.



I re-edited my post here, because I think I found nVidia's doc, Right Here


I have the same warning message as given in This posting, no idea how to ensure Rivafb is not loaded, but I have no problem after using for nearly 1 week.

Hope some guy can post here on how to ensure RivaFB is not loaded. I checked FC2's services at runlevel 5, don't see anything called rivafb there.
