heh, i am starting to regret switching back to Linux now that Detonator 4 has hit BSD... i'll see how things go along though. until i hear of success stories with XSI|EXP working with Linux emulation under FreeBSD, i'll probably stay put on Gentoo

*AlphaChild sorta wishes he stuck with FreeBSD*

I'm running FreeBSD 5.1. I picked install everything from the setup menu when I installed FreeBSD, so I assumed that it would install the Kernel source. Am I wrong?
Seems like it...

try:
ls /usr/src/sys

to find out!

anyway, you can easily install the source on a live system without hassle, just run /stand/sysinstall and choose the options:

Distributions Install additional distribution sets

then:
src

etc.
or use cvsup!

Alrighty, well ill start off by saying the old drivers have worked on my, and my friends machine. Upon installing the new drivers, they seem to work fine, until reboot. I get this following messages right after it attempts to mount my root partition:

pid 84 (fsck_ufs), uid0: exited on signal 8
pid 85 (fsck_ufs), uid0: exited on signal 8

The system countinues to halt and i cannot access the machine, even in single user mode. My friend has had the same problem as me, and we thought it was user error upon installing the drivers, so he put FreeBSD on another computer and the new drivers worked fine.

The only thing i could notice that was simliar on both the machines that these drivers did not work on was the nforce chipsets, i have an nforce chipset, my friend has an nforce2 chipset.

Anyone have any ideas? Please? It would be nice to get these drivers working, or even know what the problem is. Thanks in advance.

Same thing happens here if I try to load the module from loader.conf.

Temporarily solved by loading it through an rc.local with kldload

my conf is

ASUS A7N266-VM MoBo (nforce)
K7 2000+ XP 512 Mb DDR RAM
I only have a 3com 10/100 Mbit ethernet card in the PCI Bus.

Default nvidia riva tnt2 m64

Hi! I have a RIVA TNT2 M64 graphics card and I have just updated to FreeBSD-4.8-STABLE, recompiled the kernel and the system, and then installed the last Nvidia freebsd drivers but it doesn't work.

My computer reboots when I try to run X.

I have the same problem with the latest 4365 driver. I tried to install from the ports and from the tar ball but each and everytime, the computer reboot. I have a 4.8 Stable with the latest X, compiled the kernel with USER_LDP. My card is an old GeForce 256 with 32 megs ram, (so nothing fancy nowadays) ASUS A7PRO mobo with a 800Mhz Duron and 512meg. The monitor is a ViewSonic E790. This is my XF86Config :

Default A "solution"

Hi,

Try with only:

Section "Device"
Option "NvAgp" "0"
Driver "nvidia"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

Something like that works with mine, but even after patch both files (see README) my KDE has crashes when closing some programs (as screensaver, shell...).

Goog luck!


bAz

PS/ I use gnome a little, no problems with it

I had that problem with the previous, beta drivers, but it was fixed by rebuilding KDE but first specifying:

WITHOUT_OPENGL= yes

as a make option.

This DOESN'T stop applications from working (quake2 still rips...)

Since I've been on the release drivers, I've not actually bothered to
uncomment that OPENGL option, so don't know if I would still have the problem you describe, but it seems that from your post, maybe it would.

Try the above, and you should hopefully find that screensavers and shells don't crash - and XMMS and OPERA don't go into infinite loops! worked for me!

cheers,
jamie

If you are experiencing stability problems, you should make sure that your kernel was built without optimizations or debug information; it's usually a good idea to try disabling AGP as well, as AGP related problems are not uncommon on Linux and FreeBSD. If you are using a VESA console, you should try disabling it as well: using two different, independent drivers for the same hardware is asking for trouble. In terms of the KDE segfaults, you need to build/install/boot the kernel after patching for the changes to take effect. The following FAQ has some general advice: http://www.soulwax.net/nvidia/faq.shtml.

Default And now it works... (?!)

Hi,

At the first my computer (4.8-STABLE) did not compile, so I decided to make an "makeworld" _

Then I upgrade the KDE3 metaport:

# portupgrade -rR kde

So my KDE 3.1.0 now is a 3.1.2

After it I use the patch (I tried it with 3.1.0, but it did not work) machdep.c.diff:

# cd /usr/src/sys/i386/i386/
# patch -p0 -i ~/NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-1.0-4365/doc/machdep.c.diff

And finally I re-build my kernel (becouse of a change of colors on my ttys)...

...and it works.

Oh, I have XFree86 4.3.0

Good luck!


bAz

PS/ I don't know if one ot those steps is not necesary. It's just a "recipe" that works with my machine

Well, the new version actually works with my card, however I have a problem. I'm getting the "restrictions on /dev/nvidiactl are too restrictive, see the README" type error. so I set the permissions and anything using OpenGL crashes the entire OS, when what I'm assuming is PAM resets the permissions. The linux readme doesn't really help, though, since PAM is different on FreeBSD, and has none of the files the readme mentions.

So, if anyone can tell me how I can stop it from resetting the permissions on the devices It'll be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Oh, and I don't mind disabling PAM completely if needed.
