firstly, AlxMAX, stop being so damn impatient. if nobody has posted there is a reason for it, there is no sense in needlessly posting. people dont have to help here, they do so of their own free will and if you get bitchy, they just plain wont bother.

secondly, for some reason everything is broken in fedora. a quick search of the forums would have shown that fedora has many many problems with the nvidia drivers, showing problems that other distros dont have.

thirdly, my dell 8600 running a 5200 runs perfectly fine.

fourthly, the geforce2 is quite an old card, old cards dont like the new drivers that much. yet another thing that would have cropped up from a search of the forum.

yes, i'm in a bad mood.

mortalic: Sure. I've attached to this post. This should get you full resolution on your 17" display. BTW - I've commented out the synaptics driver as the touchpad scroll was driving me crazy.

AlxMAX: No, actually I haven't, good call. I can see drive activity, and evidenced by the mere fact I can CTL-ALT-DEL, the session is 'there', just not visible... Yes, I get back in with a startx. Guess I'll just stay in runlevel 5 until shutdown, or revised drivers. I have no other problem to speak of...

Same problem here. Dell Inspiron 5150 with a Geforce 5200 card. Hard lock on X shutdown. It happens intermittently, but when it does, it takes half my config files with it. One time I even had to blast the Xfs log to get the volume to mount. Obviously a VERY SERIOUS problem.

I've seen this problem on this laptop with Gentoo with a 2.6.9 series kernel, and with Debian sarge with a 2.4.27 kernel.

I haven't tried the disable local ACPI thing or the module options to force the right flat panel detection, tho.

Same problems, locking up on x.org start with 6629 and locking up on X exit with 6111. Dell Inspiron 2650, Gentoo kernel 2.6.10, etc. following thread with interest.

Default Re: nVidia Linux Driver support for video cards (Geforce* Go)...

hi,
iam using DELL system.it has Graphics card Nvidia GeFORCE FX5200 CARD

I started the Redhat linux 9.0 text installation (typing 'linux text' at the prompt). Otherwise, my sreen died.
2) I skipped the X configuration part of the setup
3) I downloaded nvdia driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run from nvidia site installed the driver with the sh NVIDIA..... command
4) I copied and (renamed as XF86Config) the nVidia supplied XF86Config-sample file to /etc/X11/

then i started the X server by startx command then it is giving error as foolw as
X10 fatal 10 error 104 ( connection reset by peer) an Xserver " :0,0" after 0 request (0 known Processed ) with 0 events remaining.

this above the error iam getting when iam starting Xserver
any one please help me


regards

chrismortimore: I didn't want to offend anyone, neither to ask for the NVidia developpers attention. All I wanted was to see whether I am the only one or there is really a problem with the Geforce* Go on Linux.

pinkyponky: Copying the sample offered by NVIDIA isn't the right way. The old XF86Config contains settings that are already working. You can reuse this file (make a backup copy first) by duplicating the section
Code:
Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Videocard0"
        Driver      "nv"
....
EndSection
then, in the new section, put Videocard1 instead of Videocard0 and nvidia instead of nv. Then, you may start the X server (aa, did I forget something? yes, all these must be done in console mode; actually, there are lots of posts telling how to boot in a console mode).

spankers: I tried these options too:
Code:
	Option		"NoPowerConnectorCheck" "true"
	Option		"NoBandWidthTest" "true"
but it hasn't worked. I haven't tried to put "BusID" "AGP..." because I didn't know there was such an option. Usually, there is "PCI:1:0:0".

You should probably use the "nv" driver instead of the vesa one if the "nvidia" binary one doesn't work. Also, new kernels require that modules be named "*.ko" whereas they used to be "*.o". The new nvidia driver knows this but the old one likely does not, all you have to do is make a symlink from nvidia.o to nvidia.ko for it to work (if you can get it to compile).
