[i]It crashed for me too when I used version 4.2.0_2 of those packages. [/b]
Hmm I just finished the upgrade and it get's further but still crashes

It starts running my desktop and then hands the PC

I can still ping it, but userland is dead. I can't seem to get a panic, but I guess if I hook up a serial console I probably should be able to get some sort of back trace.

Time to break out the null modem cable

Ahah!
I added the VESA option to my kernel config and now it seems to work fine.

During my testing I noticed that a colour changed image of a movie I used to test Xv with appeared in the console, and then in the main display. Weird.. When I ran the player again (mplayer) the trash image disappeared.

Gah, sorry, you are right

I mistakenly looked at the XFree86 meta port version and assumed they were all the same

I have upgraded now, but it still doesn't work 100%.

(I have another post about it)

Nope... At least not in /var/log/messages. Is there somewhere else I should look?

I'm going to try upgrading to 4.7-STABLE (from release) now and see if that helps.

Please post a copy of your bootup messages (dmesg.boot); if your system is brought to its knees by kernel panics, the best way to catch them is via a serial console and ddb enabled; if this is not an option for you, you may want to try the steps outlined by the following two articles:

OK, I'm attaching dmesg.boot and the backtrace from gdb.

I got the panic by running glxinfo twice.

Default Problems with FreeBSD driver

Just upgraded to 4.7-S and upgrade X to latest. X loads just fine and runs -- very speedily at that. However, I'm getting some kind of artifact in the upper right hand corner, a square block of color that obsures any window behind it. It changes when windows are moved -- sometimes.

Cursors, however, overlay ontop of this box. glxgears runs fine.

Any ideas?

Tried the tips at http://www.thirteenandtwo.org/nvidia/faq.html ?

I had a machine doing weird things and I disabled MTRR's and AGP and now it works.

I haven't bothered seeing which thing actually fixed it yet, but I would suggest starting from an 'everything off' situation and adding things and seeing what breaks

Actually, looks like just using the OS's AGP driver has fixed it. I'll investigate a tweak later.

Thanks!

Default Zander, putte_xvi re:reboots on second glx usage

First of all, I can't get over how much I apreciate that nVidia has gone to great lengths to make their hardware FreeBSD compatible -- I just bought one of your boards and will buy them on all of my boxes from here on out.

The meat of my message is that I am encountering the same troubles that Zander has mentioned earlier: upon the second instantiaion of a glx process, either glxinfo or glxgears, the system crashes and reboots itself. I am running

FreeBSD barnesos.net 4.7-STABLE FreeBSD 4.7-STABLE #0: Sat Nov 9 13:31:57 MST 2002

and

XFree86 4.2.1

I've included my dmesg.boot (though it probably won't be terribly useful). I will investigate Zander's suggestion of serial console and ddb (as soon as I discover what they are) and I'll post any new info I find here.

Thanks to anyone who has any ideas as to how to solve this problem,

- Shooter

i was also pleasantly surprised to see the nvidia freebsd drivers finally released. they installed perfectly on my current system (Pentium II 350 on an Intel SR440BX m/b with a 16MB RIVA TNT built in, along with 512MB of SDRAM), but there is the problem with the startup of my X server. whenever i start up, the screen 'pauses' just previous to the nvidia logo and doesnt go into the server until i press Ctrl+Alt+Backspace at exactly the right time (i have a 1/3s window every 30s)

my guess is that this is either configured during driver installation or the XF86Config file. i'll post the parts of my config file that refer to the server flags and card config)

----- XF86Config -----

# ************************************************** ********************
# Module section -- this section is used to specify
# which dynamically loadable modules to load.
# ************************************************** ********************
#
Section "Module"

Load "bitmap"

# This loads the DBE extension module.

Load "dbe" # Double buffer extension

# This loads the miscellaneous extensions module, and disables
# initialisation of the XFree86-DGA extension within that module.
SubSection "extmod"
Option "omit xfree86-dga" # don't initialise the DGA extension
EndSubSection

# This loads the Type1 and FreeType font modules
Load "type1"
Load "freetype"

# This loads the GLX module
Load "glx"

EndSection


# ************************************************** ********************
# Server flags section.
# ************************************************** ********************

Section "ServerFlags"

Option "NvAgp" "1"

EndSection



# ************************************************** ********************
# Graphics device section
# ************************************************** ********************

Section "Device"
Identifier "NV AGP"
VendorName "nvidia"
Driver "nvidia"
# update this with the PCI id of your card. Consult the output
# of the 'lspci' command.
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

----- End of XF86Config -----

i have no idea what could be the problem. all in all, the server starts up with some effort, but if i could get it started without the hassle of 'fastest keyboard strokes wins', it would be a lot nicer

PS. i cvsuped just before i got the drivers. the latest XFree86 system was definitely installed:
XFree86-4.2.0_1,1
|\__ freetype2-2.1.2_1
|\__ imake-4.2.0_1
|\__ XFree86-libraries-4.2.1_3

|\__ XFree86-fontCyrillic-4.2.0_4

The nvidia drivers seems to work when i load them, X works fluent, and basically nothing seems to be wrong.

Exception: nothing that tries to use opengl manages it with success. Could it be me doing it wrong? or are there any settings/additional software i've totally missed?

Any suggestion/sollutions are welcome.

PS. I'm glad freebsd finally get some nvidia-love.

are you trying to load up a DRI module with X? that may be the problem. make sure that the only 3D module loading up is "glx". its the first thing to look for
