Default Re: 1.0-6113 for FreeBSD thread

I updated my kernel and world as of 2004/08/14 00:00 UTC and installed, then built the driver, but it locks my machine up solid when starting.

I have a Fx 5200 Go in an Inspiron 8600.

The 4365 drivers work fine.. I am going to try twiddling with AGP settings next..

@Maxlor: the problem is documented in the README (vm.old_msync).

@samu: the PCIR_HDRTYPE change isn't needed on supported -CURRENT kernels.

Ah yes. Setting vm.old_msync does fix it. Thanks! I must say though, that particular FAQ entry is somewhat unintuitive.

Well, I'm using 5.1-release and the build hanged with it. It got fixed when I added the line.

FreeBSD 5.2.1 or later are supported; the KLD build should've bailed upon detecting the lower version, but didn't due to a typo in nv-freebsd.h.

I tried FreeBSD's AGP and disabling AGP, both of those result in a spontaneous reboot.

nVidia's AGP still results in a solid wedge

Yep, I get the reboot too. I'm running -CURRENT (from a few days ago). I've tried both FreeBSD & Nvidia AGP, similar results. To complicate live I've got an MX4000 (AGP) and 2x MX440(PCI) in the box. Under the previous version the MX440s would work but with multicards were unstable and would reboot after a couple of mplayer runs. I've rebuild X (4.4) but to no avail. Next I'll try it with only a sinly 440 card and see hos that goes. I'd like the box to be able to handle 3 TV outs, plus a fourth console screen (4 cards) but thats a big ask. With a AMD2500+ 2 movies playing is about the limit. If Nvidia would produce an AMD64 version I could prob. get 3 playing.

Please send detailed bug reports to freebsd-gfx-bugs@nvidia.com, i.e. include as much information as you can about the installed hardware and software, as well as any relevant log files. If you have the necessary equipment to setup a serial console, it would also be very helpful if you could obtain a call trace via kdb.

zander - I just did that (captured a trace via firewire), hopefully it can be sorted out soon

Hi!

I have constant headache because of the new driver. I installed recently a base FreeBSD 4.10 Release (nothing custom cvsup..). Downloaded NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-1.0-6113.tar.gz unzipped to /tmp and "make install".
It compiled and installed flawlessly. Editing X config nv->nvidia, removing comment from GLX (DRI was commented out) and starting X. It works, for a second the nvidia splash-screen is visible.
I installed from package-system a game, bzflag (maybe it is the problem/old version?). It runs perfectly for the first time! (nice graphic and fast, so uses hardware accleleration correctly). BUT! Running it second time its very slow, seems to me not using hardware opengl at all. After quitting it says about already freed something, and coredumps usually. (mainly if loaded the EMU10K1 module for sound). Sometimes it even reboots the machine after 3-4 second when i quit.

I watched the README file, is says about msync bug. I set vm.old_msync to 1 just before starting x. Or should i set it at boot-time? At the loader's OK prompr i type: set vm.old_msync=1 but after login sysctl says its 0. Putting the line vm.old_msync="1" into /boot/loader.conf results the same.

I have AMD 2000+ MSI Gef4200, MSI KT3Ultra2 (VIA KT333) and SB-Live.
Did nvidia simply forget to include VIA KT333 at supported AGP chipsets in linux-readme, or it inst supported and i have to use FreeBSD's agp.ko?
(in GENERIC kernel agp.ko is built-in, and nvidia driver detects it if i start x)

Thanx for any help, i really want 3D opengl on my machine.

I forgot to tell:

Installed Tuxracer from packages, and it doesnt start, complaining about missing opengl-support. (GLX module loaded properly, as bzflag can run for the first time).
I heard about glxgears, how can i install it? linux module loads at boot time. Is it enough to play quake2/3 on FreeBSD?
