Default Linux 2.6.11 + Riva TNT2 + 6629 drivers

It`s a lot of problems with it.
I can compile 6629 drivers with patches for this kernel, but it don`t work correctly with Riva. Is it a pacth already present for 6629 for riva?
Or maybe someone know, how to compile 6111 drivers for linux-2.6.11 ?

The old tnt cards are not working with version 6629. You can use 6111!
vanilla 2.6.11 + ck kernel patch + nVidia 6111 + nvidia 6111 vga patch by matott.
This works for me!

It don`t work.
I apply the patch o the driver. And use it with not patched kernel(applyed some additional patches, to let it compile) it starts, but halt system when KDE trying to show his Splash screen.
After it i apply this patch to klear driver and patch to klear 2.6.11 kernel from kernel.org.
And the result are the same

Use a vanilla Kernel with the ck patches. Download the orginal Nvidia Display Driver 1.0-6111. Extract the source using the -x option. Apply the patch, run the installer (./nividia-installer). That's it!

There is a section in the README file that is specific to Riva TNT cards. It is a short section that mentions that these cards sometimes report the wrong kind of memory. It specifies a file to edit. When I followed the directions in the README concerning this, the 6111.jp3 driver loaded properly for me.

Once you run sh NV....run --extract-only and enter the folder it is the file usr/src/nv/os-registry.c. I specified SDRAM with the appropriate flag and then set the flag at the end of the file that tells the driver to look at the flag. The other option was SGRAM.

Please note that the NVreg_VideoMemoryTypeOverride kernel option is specific to TNT's with bad VBIOS's, it doesn't apply to TNT2 graphics cards. Please fall back to 1.0-6111 or use the Xorg/XFree86 nv driver until an updated driver has been released.

I understand, but it`s a problem with 6111 driver and Linux-2.6.11 with TNT2 Ultra.
Maybe i should try to fall back to more earlyer driver?
Does anybody know, which version will work with 2.6.11 kernel?

Oh I see; I don't think older drivers would help. Did you try the unpatched version of 1.0-6111 with a Linux 2.6.11 kernel patched for backwards compatibility (e.g. with http://ck.kolivas.org/patches/2.6/2....9_compat2.diff)?
