Talking Driver works in 5.0-RELEASE

All you have to do is change this in src/nv-freebsd.h:

#if __FreeBSD_version >= 500000
#error This driver does not support FreeBSD 5.0/-CURRENT!
#elif __FreeBSD_version < 470000
#error This driver requires FreeBSD 4.7 or later!
#endif

To this:
/*
#if __FreeBSD_version >= 500000
#error This driver does not support FreeBSD 5.0/-CURRENT!
#elif __FreeBSD_version < 470000
#error This driver requires FreeBSD 4.7 or later!
#endif
*/

Those who are C programmers will notice that it's merely commenting it out. Follow the regular instructions in doc/README, and happy fragging with the daemon unleased.

Default

I'm getting the crash/reboot problem too, both with FreeBSD 4.7-STABLE and FreeBSD 5.0-CURRENT (from yesterday) after running something OpenGL more than once or twice. I have no DRI in my XF86Config either....
I thought it was just random reboots, but now it appears that it's actually a panic so i'll have to learn how to setup a serial console i guess if I manage to get some output, what use would it be and where exactly would I have to report the problem and send the dump?
Has this issue been solved already?

Thanks
Markie

Andy/Anyone else,

When will the NVidia drivers *stably* support FreeBSD 5.0? I know that, with a bit of tweaking, they work at the moment, but when will the support be stable?

Tks,
-JediHobbes-

Default SiS Chipset and FreeBSD

I have an SiS (yes, I know, but it was either SiS or no system) chipset trying to get nVidia FreeBSD drivers to work. So far all I can get is the dreaded lines of varying colors, no matter what I try. I've followed all instructions to the letter, and have stumped everyone to whom I've presented the information. I've attached a textfile with all the information that I think is necessary. If anything else is needed, please drop me a line.

Default Lockup on FreeBSD 5.0-RELEASE

The driver compiled fine, and loads fine according to the dmesg.boot file.

However, when running X, the nvidia splash screen loads, and the default X background loads, but any painting to the screen seems to lock up the computer requiring a hard boot.

here's my XFree86Config:

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Layout0"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
EndSection

Section "Files"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
Option "Xinerama" "true"
EndSection

Section "Module"
Load "xie"
Load "pex5"
#Load "glx"
Load "dri"
Load "dbe"
Load "record"
Load "extmod"
Load "type1"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Buttons" "7"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
#Option "Emulate3Buttons"
Option "Device" "/dev/psm0"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Keyboard0"
Driver "keyboard"
Option "XkbModel" "pc101"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
HorizSync 31.5 - 79.0
VertRefresh 50.0 - 100.0
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Card0"
Driver "nv"
ChipSet "GeForce4 Ti 4200"
Card "NVidia GeForce4 Ti 4200"
VendorName "NVIDIA"
BoardName "NVidia GeForce4 Ti 4200"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Card0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024" "1152x864" "1024x768" "640x480"
EndSubSection
EndSection

Any ideas?

Section "Files"

EndSection

EndSection

Question

I am having trouble setting up my Dual head display with the FreeBSD drivers, I can't seem to get the second GeForce to initialise, everything works great with the 'nv' driver and Xinerama, But I'd like OpenGL support.

Athlon XP1500
Asus A7V266
Geforce3 Ti 200 (AGP)
GeForce4 MX 420 (PCI)

here are some logs and my XF86Config files, any ideas would be appreciated

from pciconf

nvidia0@pci1:0:0: class=0x030000 card=0x51051462 chip=0x020110de rev=0xa3 hdr=0x00
vendor = 'Nvidia Corporation'
device = 'GeForce3 Ti 200 [NV20DDR]'
class = display
subclass = VGA
none0@pci0:15:0: class=0x030000 card=0x000210b0 chip=0x017210de rev=0xa3 hdr=0x00
vendor = 'Nvidia Corporation'
device = 'GeForce4 MX 420 [NV17.3]'

Default FreeBSD 5.0

Well, I've managed to get the version of the driver in the ports tree to at least build the kernel module by changing directory into work and then the NVIDIA... driver folder and running make setup there.

However, when I boot, the device comes up

nvidia0: <GeForce4 Ti 4200> mem 0xd8000000-0xd807ffff,0xd0000000-0xd7ffffff,0xe4000000-0xe4ffffff irq 11 at device 0.0 on pci1
Bad malloc flags: 0

**note the bad malloc flags** Anyone know how to fix this?

X crashes when I try to run it anyway.

On a side not, does anyone know how to revert to the non-nvidia OpenGL? I would like to run GL apps (however slowly) until I can get the hardware wirking.

Default FreeBSD-5.0 current

I ahve had success on 5.0 by following the instructions on this page:

http://www.cs.queensu.ca/home/chene/...sd_nVidia.html

Also, I used the example XF86Config file there for the device settings.

Default what is dri and why it can't run with glx?

well in previous post many ppl said that glx and dri should not be used one with another. but as i saw some people could really get X working with Nvidia's graphics and both dri and glx enabled while i can't get it working any way. my problem is that on start it shows something like this:
(...bla bla nothing interesting bla bla ...)
(==) NVIDIA(0): Write-combining range (0xde601000,0x1000) was already clear
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVdriver kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***
(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
(II) UnloadModule: "vgahw"
(II) Unloading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libvgahw.a
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

Fatal server error:
no screens found

nvidia module is loaded in kernel.
this is when i disable dri and leave only glx. of course in Cards section of config file i am using nvidia instead of nv.
