Default Re: Official FreeBSD drivers!

Can anyone shed light on this? I upgraded to a Asus P4P800e Deluxe / 3.0ghz Prescott / 1024 DDR400 / Gforce FX5900XT. I am on 5.2.1 Release P8. Now when I am in X, the system pauses every second or so. This affects audio playback, mouse movement etc... I am running latest nvidia driver, gnome2.6, X11 (current ports). The issue only occurs in X... system works fine when I am not in X. Anyone have a FX5900 running? I am running with nvidia agp, not FreeBSD. I have reverted to the standard "nv" driver and things are running well. Of coarse I am missing GL and extensions. Unless someone has a solution, I am waiting patiently for an updated driver....


Thx



Code:
nvidia0: <Unknown> mem 0xe8000000-0xefffffff,0xfd000000-0xfdffffff irq 10 at device 0.0 on pci1

nvidia: agp_find_device failed, chipset unsupported?

<i>
FreeBSD Graphics Driver Download

Version: 1.0-4365
File Size: 4.4 MB
Release Date: July 1, 2003
</i>

what a PITA, 1 year after the last release, freebsd users were left on dust from nvidia lack of support
I wonder how much does cost to pay a bsd developer to apply the lastest patchs from lunix drivers for this plataform, and release them officially for the BSD everyday bigger comunity

Even yesterday, i was playing urbanterror on some european server, i get almost half the lag/pings and twice fps in linux than on freebsd. Same game version, same patches same everything. Well, you can say video drivers, cant change lag or so, but since i run on a builtin nvidia relcrap if_net card, and knowing BSD ipstack that can explains all

argh to be true theresnt official freebsd nforce drivers despite some aussie hacker work, that does it, pretty well. So perhaps my complain must be wider.

But the true is this lack of support is drilling my nerves..
hey perhaps im the problem for spending my precious money on this wanna-be "professional->home costumers" companies!

Need help please...

I downloaded the latest NVidia drivers for my GeForce MX card, and attempted to compile the driver.

I am getting the following errors:

ELF binary type "3" not known.
/compat/linux/sbin/ldconfig: 1: Syntax error: "(" unexpected *** Error code 2

Stop in /root/NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-1.0-4365/lib/compat *** Error code 1

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


Any ideas???


Thanks...

I would strongly recommend upgrading your ports tree with cvsup (see the handbook) and using the port
cd /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver
make install clean

After that you just have to edit your XF86Config file to use the nvidia driver (vs the nv one) and you should be set.

I would say he means nVidia Riva128.

Note that the Windows drivers for Rivas are different to TNT/GeForce (NV4+) so it's not very suprising.

The XFree86 drivers support Rivas, doubt they do 3d though.

Thanks, but I still get the same error when I try to compile the src.

Any ideas??

Can you paste the last 20 lines of output when you are building the port please?

Hello,

I'm having some issues with the nvidia driver for freebsd. I install the driver trough the ports system .

phobos# cd /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver/
phobos# make install

Eveything install fine except the make setup that seems to be broken.

phobos# pkg_info | grep nvidia
nvidia-driver-1.0.4365_2 NVidia graphics card binary drivers for hardware OpenGL ren
phobos# cd work/NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-1.0-4365
phobos# make setup
===> module
"Makefile", line 17: Malformed conditional (${OSVERSION} > 500011)
"Makefile", line 17: Need an operator
"Makefile", line 19: if-less endif
"Makefile", line 19: Need an operator
make: fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver/work/NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86-1.0-4365.

Bu the make setup is option i think.

phobos# kldload nvidia
Jul 18 07:03:17 phobos kernel: nvidia0: <GeForce2 MX/MX 400> mem 0xd0000000-0xd7ffffff,0xde000000-0xdeffffff irq 4 at device 0.0 on pci1
# kldstat
Id Refs Address Size Name
1 3 0xc0400000 65a558 kernel
2 1 0xc4711000 187000 nvidia.ko
phobos# kldunload nvidia
Jul 18 07:04:09 phobos kernel: nvidia0: detached
phobos# kldstat
Id Refs Address Size Name
1 1 0xc0400000 65a558 kernel
phobos#

All fine till here (except for the make setup).
I setup X and gnome and it works fine with the default nv driver. When I switch to the nvidia driver my XFreeConfig is equal to the default one, I only change the nv driver to nvidia and i take out dri, record and xtrap from the Secton "Module".
Here is the sections:
Section "Module"
Load "dbe"
Load "extmod"
Load "glx"
Load "speedo"
Load "freetype"
Load "type1"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Option "NvAGP" "1"
Identifier "Card0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "nVidia Corporation"
BoardName "NV11 [GeForce2 MX/MX 400]"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

The rest of the config is the default.
When I startx I don't see any output it just leads me to a screen full of crazy characters and symbols and I can't get out (Ctrl^c, ctrl+alt+backspace) until it shuts down the machine. It seems like there is some sort of problem somewhere and I can't find it. I had this machine as my freebsd desktop with freebsd 5.2.1-releasep9 for almost a month and it worked just fine with nvidia driver but then i had to reinstall everything coz i only had 6GB space for freebsd and I installed everything in a new disk. I have more than one freebsd desktop and they all run with nvidia driver, never had a problem and now this is bugging me like hell!

If anyone knows anything on this please post.

System info:

phobos# uname -a
FreeBSD phobos 5.2.1-RELEASE-p9 FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE-p9 #0: Sun Jul 18 05:43:12 GMT 2004 alex@phobos:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/phobos i386

unknown: <PNP0f13> can't assign resources (irq)

Graphic card:

AGP Geforce MX 400 64MB SDRAM
It has an onboard card but it's not being used.

Thanks for your help and thanks for reading my thread!

cheers

PS: For the sake of hard trying I edited the Makefile from the modules area and fixed the condition. But the problem still persists!
