Cool Re: 1.0-6629 x86/x86-64 and Linux 2.6.10

Hi all!

The original nvidia Geforce driver works well without patching :-). There is unresolved problem with motherboard nforce driver which do not want compile on 2.6.10 due to changed pci logic in new kernel :-(.

My hardware:
MB: Abit NF7-S v2.0 with current BIOS (chipset nforce2 Ultra 400, MCP-T, SI3112A)
proc: Athlon XP 2500+
mem: 2x 256MB DDR400 (Twinbank)
gfx: MSI Geforce FX5200
audio: nforce2 MCP-T SoundStorm
HDD: 80GB SATA

My software:
Linux: Mandrake 10.1 with all updates
Kernel: 2.6.10 from www.kernel.org
Driver: NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1.run (works well without patchng) :-)
Driver: NFORCE-Linux-x86-1.0-0292-pkg1.run (do not work, do not compile) :-(

Slackware 10
X Window System Version 6.8.1 (xorg)
2.6.9 with nvidia 6629 : OK
2.6.10 with nvidia 6629 : X FREEZES at the start
I've tryed to use every patch listed in here, I couldn't achieve to launch X with 2.6.10 kernel ...

How comes nvidia isn't following the kernel evolutions and releasing it's driver updated at the same time ? It's quite annoying to have to wait two or three months each time to be able to benefit from the latests kernel features ...

But nvidia is always there to improve their 3Dmark score under MS oses ...

Please do something, don't let people mess with your unworking patches.

Default NVIDIA driver fails with Fedora 2.6.10-1.1063-FC4.i686 kernel

I upgraded my Fedora 3 system to the latest
2.6.10-1.1063-FC4.i686 kernel. Now I find that the
NVIDIA-linux-x86-1.0 driver will no longer compile.
I am getting an error indicating an undefined structure
near line 2508 of the file nv.c

I also have a Fedora 1 system which is running the
2.6.10 kernel built from source obtained from
www.kernel.org. This system works fine with the
NVIDIA - 6629 driver. There seems to be some
changes made to the Fedora pre-built 2.6.10 kernel
that causes the NVIDIA installer to fail.

Try the latest version of my compatibility patches for 2.6.10 (kernel patch, not nvidia patch):
http://ck.kolivas.org/patches/2.6/2....29_compat.diff

It's designed to help 6111 and 6629 to build and hopefully even work.

Default Re: 1.0-6629 x86/x86-64 and Linux 2.6.10

Hi,

I recently bought a HP Pavilion zv5000 laptop, and installed a Debian Sid 64 bits (http://debian-amd64.alioth.debian.org) on it. I run a 2.6.10 kernel. I installed 1.0-6629 nvidia driver but XFree has a strange behaviour. The screen is splitted horizontally, and I get twice the desktop on it, like on this tiny ascii art representation :

+---------------------------+
|very flat desktop 1|
+---------------------------+
|very flat desktop 2|
+---------------------------+

The GPU is a GeForce4 440.
I applied the patch given above, but nothing appears to change.
http://www.thesard.org/~foo/XFree86.0.log
http://www.thesard.org/~foo/XF86Config-4

Thanks.

Well, now it works \o/.
I swapped to x.org and use an old driver : 1.0-6111 instead of 1.0-6629.
I also changed my kernel : back to 2.6.9.

That patch still doesn't work. At least not for me. Therefore, I have patched your patch and published it on the following page:
http://brcha.objectis.net/Projects/K...dia-brcha.diff

That kernel patch works for me for both 6111 and 6629 nvidia drivers and enables them to work with kernel 2.6.10 out of the box.

I have also built binary RPM of the kernel, but it is 12MB and I have a 56k modem connection I will try to find a better connection during the day and upload the binary rpm of the kernel to my web site (you will be informed of the location but it can't be too far from the patch url).

Best regards to all
Brcha

Aaah crap I see my mistake. Thanks. I'll have to post a better version for the next -ck. Your patch seems ideal.

Sigh this does not work either. When I start Doom3 the system just hangs and I have to hard reboot. After I applied your patch I looked through all my logs in /var/log and I didnt even see an entry for the time it crashed. Could someone PLEASE help me?

Thanks
