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

I have the same problem, but this only happens when launching Doom3 native, CoD via cedega, or HL2 via cedega. I have no idea how to fix it if someone has figured out a way please post. Ive tried all the patches on this forum.

Well, I am about to give up wasting my time...and just wait for the next driver release.

Can't seem to get 6629 to work no matter how I fiddle with the patches.

System starts and when X tries to start - hang with black screen and I lose signal to the display. 2GB, Intel 925x chip, PCIe 6800

Using init3 boots fine and a manual modprobe nvidia proceeds without complaint. Trying to start X from there results in the same black screen hang.

The system is not accessible over the network and must be reset/power cycled.

It's all very funny because I have several other systems (different hardware) that work fine(!)

I have included my bug report file if anyone is interested.

I have installed correctly drivers applying the patches, but when initiating the X continue leaving the black screen. But under the black screen in a corner the pixels of the x are seen

I still get errors with GLX, I can't figure out, I've done all the install options and everything.

I am running Debian stable/testing and have a Geforce4 MX440. I plan to install the 2.6.10 stable kernel. Am I likely to need to patch the 6229 drivers in order for it to work?

Zander, I am using Slackware 10 and am getting the SIGSEGV abort during the module build. Can you point me in the right direction?

Thanks,

Zander,

Linux-GNU 2.6.10 on Intel P4 3.06GHz, TNT2 M64 32M, 6111, XFree86 4.4

I gave up on 6629 until a better driver/patch comes along so I've been using Luzbel's
patch for 6111 (on 12-27-04, above - many thanks to Luzbel for that).

The "new" 6111 now compiles smoothly and everything works OK, after a fashion:
In SINGLE processor mode the system works perfectly, BUT
as soon as I dare set up the kernel for SMP (as I should, with the above HT processor),
the video function goes awry.
If I as much as attempt a little stunt like just changing (in "Processor type and features")
"Symmetric multi-processing support" (CONFIG_SMP) from "not set" to YES,
with or without setting the associated
"SMT (Hyperthreading) scheduler support" (_SCHED_SMT),
I get into trouble.
Once I do the required recompile/reinstall of 6111 and as long as I stay "live"
the video keeps working fine.
OTOH, after ANY system reboot, on starting X, the machine always freezes solid
(somewhere before the "NVIDIA logo" step) forcing me to soft reboot and again
recompile/reinstall 6111.
To put it another way, in SMP, after any 6111 recompile, BEFORE a system reboot,
I can go - from the default level 3 - up and down with X, to and from graphics bliss,
to my heart's desire.
In SINGLE there's never any problem.

FWIW, here's an extract from a typical XFree86 log:
...
(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so
(II) Module glx: vendor="NVIDIA Corporation"
compiled for 4.0.2, module version = 1.0.6111
Module class: XFree86 Server Extension
ABI class: XFree86 Server Extension, version 0.1
(II) Loading extension GLX
...
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1024x768" ----- [the "SMP"-X dies here]
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(II) Loading extension NV-GLX --------------- [the "SINGLE"-X happily continues
all the way to a successful and rewarding completion]
...

PS - I tried to look for any nvidia file that might get "tainted" by the kernel during a run
so I can save/restore it at the proper times as a workaround, but taint none that looks
different before and after any run.

Please help, thanks.

Thank you. The X server no longer gags (black screen) on my Dell Inspiron 5150 after applying these patches.

One last minor problem remains. Upon bootup nvidia.ko is not being loaded. If I load it manually via 'insmod' everything works great. I checked both modprobe.conf and modules.dep and both look ok. Is an option required to load "TAINTED" modules at boot time?
Thanks.

Figured it out. It was a RedHat specific change to rc.sysinit (looked for ksyms). Everythings working great now. Thanks again for making those patches available so quickly.

Well, I didn't have the time to read all this thread, but I would like to mention that on a Fedora Core 2 with a 2.6.10 kernel (no patch other than Fedora's was necessary for the kernel), a Xorg 6.7.0 and a Geforce 2 GTS video board, the 6629 drivers are working like a charm (without any of the zander's patches)! Why don't they work like this on a Dell Inspiron 2650 and a Fedora Core 3 with the same kernel? I've told ya! It's the monitor detection that goes wrong!

Hi all,

Some of you may have FC4 or Fedora Dev, or Fedora Rawhide. In this case you failed to compil 6629 due to kernel 2.6.10 change. I hacked a very short patch for it. It work fine. Process is the same as zander tell. Apply his patch and this one in the same way. Envoy GNU Linux, envoy NVIDIA.
