Well, I finally took the pinch and threw out those old PCI TNT2s for AGP GeForce4s (Asus brand, no less). Works like a charm now.

Running Slackware 10.1, customized 2.6.10 kernels and X.Org 6.8.1. Driver built without a hitch (I replaced the asm-i386 and linux folder in /usr/include with symlinks to their respective counterparts in /usr/src/linux-2.6.10/include, and also threw in a symlink to asm-generic).

Not a good thing to do, linking to the new kernel headers system wide will cause problems with compiling things if you don't recompile glibc to make use of those headers.

Hi All.
Untill patching the Nvidia driver, I had a freezed screen when nvidia module loads.
Now driver works well, but at unloading time the system is crashes.
What would I do?

Video: GeForce FX 5200,
Chipset:nForce 2
Kernel: Linux 2.6.10 from www.kernel.org, compiled for Athlon K7 processor with included agpart, and riva frame buffer as module,
Distributive: Mandrake Linux 10.0

Sorry I don't speek English well.

(короче по русски: Не патченные дрова компилируются, но при загрузке экран зависает. Патченные работают, но при перезагрузке виснет вся система)

I've been reading this forum every day and trying a million different ways to fix the weird "screen freeze" issues that I've been having. None of the solutions here worked for me. I had begun to give up hope.... then I installed xorg 682, and my problem went away! =) I'm running a Linux From Scratch system, 2.6.10 kernel, geforce 6800 pci express. I thought I was going to have to use the vesa driver forever....... *sigh* =) Oh happy day! Oh I forgot to mention that I am using the most recent patches from this thread as well... thanks to the authors!

/me runs to install open-croquet

Hi,

do you know if there are unsolved issues regarding PCI-e on a dual AMD64 (on the new dual PCI-e motherboard -Tyan). It seems that the guys at Xicomputrs cannot make PCI-e work on linux and I cannot order the workstation because of that.

thanks for your help,
-Massimo

The 1.0-6629 NVIDIA Linux driver release for Linux/x86 and Linux/x86-64 may not work correctly with Linux 2.6.10 out-of-the box, depending on your configuration. If you do not wish to wait for an updated NVIDIA driver release to address this problem, you can solve it by downloading the attached patch files and following the steps below:

# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-6629-pkg0.run --extract-only
# cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-6629-pkg0
# patch -p0 < /path/to/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-6629-1165235.diff.txt
# patch -p0 < /path/to/NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-6629-1171869.diff.txt
# ./nvidia-installer

Note that if you're using 1.0-6629 for Linux/x86, either one of the -pkg0 and -pkg1 packages can be used. If you use 1.0-6629 for Linux/x86-64, you will likely want to substitute -pkg2 in the instructions (-pkg2 includes the Linux/x86 32-bit compatibility libraries).

I'm getting an error: parse error before '*' token on usr/src/nv/os-agp.c:48 using the kernel of the day from SUSE which is currently 2.6.11rc5. I know that's not 2.6.10, but just wondered if anyone had a suggestion... maybe I'm missing something.

Gotta love it... apparently the drm agp tie in stuff was removed from the backend because somebody did a grep through the generic kernel and saw it wasn't used anywhere... so they yanked it!

Hee hee... this is fun.

@cjox: please see the 1.0-6629 for Linux x86/x86-64 updates thread for a patch that addresses this problem.

Sorry, I do not know. Perhaps they are just using the last available driver (Nov 2004) without any patch.
I did not buy the system yet because I am afraid that will not work with linux. The system is a dual Opteron on Tyan K8WE S2895A2NNRF Nvidia@Nforce Pro 2xPCIe SLI cap (wih two GeForce 6800 Ultra).

Are PCIe and GeForce 6800 Ultra supported with the current driver ? I know that SLI is not supported. I need this workstation to do reaserch at the university and I would appreciate if you could let me know if
it is safer to go for an AGPx8 instead (given that I use linux most of the time).

thanks
-Massimo

PCI-E is supported by the 1.0-6629 NVIDIA Linux driver release, but there are known stability problems on Linux/x86-64 (in part due to problems with specific kernel interfaces) that may reproduce more frequently on PCI-E systems. We hope to release an updated driver with improved Linux/x86-64 and improved PCI-E support (among other things), soon.
