Default Re: 1.0-6113 for FreeBSD thread

Heya!

Of course can you use FreeBSD 5.2.1 with your NVidia card on amd64. The only drawback is, that the available drivers (i tested vesa and nv from X.org 6.8) are *not* hardware-accelerated, which means you wouldn't be able to play p.e. quake3 with an acceptable framerate. My suggestion is to wait for FreeBSD 5.3, which will "hit stores" on about 10th October 2004. I think when 5.3's out, NVidia will released amd64 drivers soon.
(If you think you can do it, try cvsupping the RELENG_5 branch which will allow you to use a Beta version of 5.3. These betas are already in a nearly-stable state imho; use it if you want to have a look at 5.3)

regards,

kpanic

Hey zander, I have a similar config to hishnik.

Here is what happens:

I can set it to use NvAgp, or no AGP, and either way the sysctls and the xorg.log file both don't have anything about AGP getting enabled, other than the fact that the NvAgp option was set to use nvidia's internal agp support. Other than the fact that AGP isn't getting enabled, Everything works fine. Just a little slower than I'd expect for a couple of games (significantly slower than windows, but still accelerated).

When I try to use FreeBSD's AGP, and set all the options to match, I can see in the log (upon reboot) that AGP was enabled in the xorg.log, but the machine hangs hard... I can't even ssh to the machine to reboot it. I tried using FreeBSD's AGP with acpi and apic disabled, and with just acpi, and with just apic, and no matter what the result is the same.

I've just been running without AGP for the time being, but I think that the driver just doesn't have support for my AGP chipset yet.

I have a GeForce FX 5900, Athlon 64 3200+ (running in FreeBSD/i386, 32-bit), 1GB of Corsair RAM, asus k8v deluxe mobo. This uses the Via k8t800 chipset I believe (I might have that wrong, but it's the via chipset that's meant for socket 754 athlon 64's).

Anyway, any idea if the driver will support this chipset on its next release?

Yes, K8T800 support is planned for a future driver release.

I get the following message whenever X starts:
"NVRM: Detected agp.ko, aborting NVidia AGP setup!".

I have been unable to get the video out working through the CRT port in my laptop as well. In the last drivers it worked perfectly with a similar (if not the same) configuration in the Xconfig file:
Quote:
Section "Device"
Identifier "Card0"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "NoLogo" "1"
Option "TwinView"
Option "MetaModes" "DFP-0:1400x1050,CRT-0:1024x768@1400x1050"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP-0,CRT-0"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30.0-120.0"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "50.0-120"
EndSection
I am using FreeBSD 5.3 Beta1 (I know I should update but I haven't had time. I've planned to do it once 5.3R comes out).
My computer is a toshiba 5205- s503 satellite laptop, and it has TV-OUT and CRT-OUT ports.
I've also tried to get a Nvidia 2 MX 400 working in a desktop computer but it just turns the screen off when starting X. Am I doing something wrong? is it the Beta?

(BTW I disabled the SMP kernel options because otherwise both machines would freeze when starting X)


Thanks in advance

I tried this driver on another machine, with a GeForce4 MX 440 with AGP8X and the intel 845G (supposed to be supported by the nvidia driver's internal agp). I think there may be a bug here because I'm seeing this in the sysctl:

kaoru:~:> dmesg | grep nvidia
nvidia0: <GeForce4 MX 440 with AGP8X> mem 0xf0000000-0xf7ffffff,0xfc000000-0xfcffffff irq 16 at device 0.0 on pci1
nvidia0: [GIANT-LOCKED]
kculver@kaoru:~:> sysctl | grep nvidia

I don't have agp compiled into the kernel nor do I have agp.ko loaded. The driver also doesn't complain about any trouble initializing the agp. IT just doesn't work. Any ideas?

Default Re: 1.0-6113 for FreeBSD thread

Anyone knows, if/when support for something like the "windows powermizer" is planned ifor FreeBSD? (I have FreeBSD 5.2, nvidia1.0.6113 and nvidia-settings installed).

All I found so far is that powermizer does clock down the card, and (explicitly/implicitly) puts it in low voltage. So maybe its less a dirver more an application issue. In which case anyone an idea, if something like this exists, or what would need to be done?

3165 frames in 5.0 seconds = 633.000 FPS
3175 frames in 5.0 seconds = 635.000 FPS
3150 frames in 5.0 seconds = 630.000 FPS

i have no idea why i getting that so bad performance ,(on linux whit the same pc i get around 1800-2000fps)

pd: with the nvidia agp module the performance is equaly bad

Try using one of the other configurator programs. xf86cfg is the graphical program that gives some people problems. There is a text based program that will create a config file for you, but I cant remember the name. I'm running xorg and the name is different.

Hi guys, I need help with installing these drivers. I am a bsd n00bie so i am sure this problem is pretty easy to solve for you guys.

Ok, I extracted the drivers, did make install.

But the next time I boot into kde, I get the KDE crash info thingy, which says something like...

kcminit
signal 11
SIGSEGV crashed

and then my system would hang up and I have to do hard reboot.

Any help would be apperciated

thx in advance
