Sorry, probably should have mentioned I'm using FreeBSD 4.7, which uses linux PAM.

Hi all ,

I'm using a Geforce 3 Ti200 by Creative.

I've tried the new driver release.

I've a KT400 mobo , and if I compile Nvidia drivers with FreeBSD AGP when I use a game that have very big Textures (for example Enemy Territory at resolution of 1280x1024 + all 32bit + all effects max and Texture compression to NO ) after 30 seconds (about) of play the textures starts to flicker, and then the textures become of rainbow colors , and then (after all this ) about 2 minutes after I've started to play the VGA seems to load the wrong textures on the polygons (for example I find the texture of a barrel on the floor ) , after about a couple of seconds all start flicker , and the system freeze , if I reduce the dimension of the textures (for example by only enable texture compression) this problem disappear .

If I compile the driver with Nvidia AGP the problem disappears at all , but , Nvidia AGP supports KT400? In the readme it isn't in the list .

Thanks

Bye

It does; you can double-check by looking at the AGP configuration as reported by the nvidia sysctl interface after starting the X server.

I want to declare a bug.

Using Gnome + RenderAccell makes the button s (when opening a window ) all messed up . Disabling that all turns normal .

I have a Creative GF3Ti200

Bye

I'm having the same problems on my 5.1 machine,

on 5.1 I have found that disabling ACPI (you can boot without ACPI in the boot menu) will get rid of the errors, though unfortunately it also doesn't load the driver then, *but* at least you will be able to boot and fix the problems.

Does anyone have a proper fix, or better yet, an explanation for this problem?

Lightbulb how about wider support for the bsd-drivers??

Are you going to update the drivers anytime soon?? I'm really having problems getting my 5200fx to work. From what I understand it's one of the only chips that aren't supported by the bsd-driver yet... I keep checking in but never any news.

Default GF5200FX Ultra Not so ultra!

Hello,
I have been having problems with my 5200fx ultra card(just bought it). I have heard that this card is not supported by the driver (.4365). Is this true? If The Card is supported then my problem is when i load the driver successfully and try to run X i am getting crazy matrix like characters on the screen. X does not come up and the char's stay present until i reboot. I have been reading the postings but have been unsuccessfull with finding a solution. It seems like others are having simalar problems but i dont see any type of solution or if there is one for this card. It would be nice to be able to use the new card. I am using a SOYO KT333 Dragon Lite MB and I just reflashed my bios to the most recent version, still luck.

Default Problems with FreeBSD-AMD64?

When trying this with my AMD64 I get the following error:

===> module
ld -d -warn-common -r -d -o nvidia.kld NVIDIA.o nvidia_ctl.o nvidia_dev.o nvidia_linux.o nvidia_os.o nvidia_os_pci.o nvidia_os_registry.o nvidia_pci.o nvidia_subr.o nvidia_sysctl.o
ld: Relocatable linking with relocations from format elf32-i386-freebsd (NVIDIA.o) to format elf64-x86-64 (nvidia.kld) is not supported
*** Error code 1

Stop in /root/NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-1.0-4365/module.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /root/NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-1.0-4365.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

this was after I had to fix problems with inability of including vm86.h and linux.h


ACK! Not to mention that the Linux-AMD64 driver page didn't match the documentation with the downloadable files... oh well. Now it does, guess it's time to try Mandrake again...

I tried using the nvidia drivers on FreeBSD 4.9 with NVidia Riva Ultra Vanta TNT2 card. It works great otherwise but sometimes, usually after 1-2 hours of use (only 2D), the system suddenly reboots. The machine is very stable using the XFree86 nv driver. Has anyone else experienced this or even know how to fix it? Thanks!
