@snaboofypop: judging from these Oops messages, the NVIDIA kernel module hasn't been loaded, yet, when the problem occurs.

Default Re: 1.0-7167 for Linux x86 released

zander: I would like to ask you a question. Can the fact that I am setting in my laptop BIOS the LCD as active device at boot or the CRT as active device at boot or both devices influence the stability of the driver? This experience made me ask this question.

Problem installing on Mandrake 2.6.8.1-24mdk kernel

Yes, kernel source 2.6.8.1-24 is installed.

Yes, I tried the "--kernel-source-path" command line option also.

I suspect it really isn't a problem with the kernel source not being found since it does seem to compile, but fails when trying to insert the module. Maybe there is a clue in the fact that it is complaining about agp symbols and the card is PCI... I don't know.

Hardware is a PCI TNT2. OS is Mandrake 10.1 w/ above stated kernel.

6691 driver does compile and install correctly, but does not work correctly.



Log output from the 7176 install attempt is below.

Any suggestions?



Code:
-> Kernel module compilation complete.
ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'.  This is most likely
       because the kernel module was built using the wrong kernel source files.
       Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your

       'kernel-source' rpm installed.  If you know the correct kernel source
       files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the
       '--kernel-source-path' commandline option.

It's more likely that it's because your kernel-source doesn't match excactly with your installed pre-compiled kernel.

@JimiQuakeKorne: you need to preload the AGPGART frontend module with `modprobe agpgart` (please see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...80&postcount=1 or http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-7167.html).

and with 2.6.12-rc1 it is unable to load the module because it claims itself unable to find kernel sources even if I give --with-kernel-sources option and if I have my sources in /usr/src/linux as before..


Please HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELP !!!

Why the hell I have to load a module I don't use?? I don't even have it compiled as a modules simply because I don't use it.

When I tryed out anyways, I found out nvidia and agpgart where both loaded, even if in xorg.conf file I specify to use nvidia's. The performance just suck with this new driver. What keeps be bothering is wheter from now on I will have to load both modules or not....Cause I think I'm gonna stick to previous dirvers cause they rock.

@Hammett: the dependency on agpgart.ko was introduced when AGPGART stopped exporting the "drm_agp" function pointer table via the now deprecated inter_module_* mechanism in Linux 2.6.11; please note that agpgart.ko is not required to be loaded if the target kernel was configured/built without AGPGART support (i.e. neither modular, nor static) and that it doesn't include backend functionality and thus doesn't interfere with NvAGP (in fact, the dependency on agpgart.ko exists, in part, to allow the NVIDIA driver to determine if it's safe to use NvAGP). There's a known performance problem when AGPGART is used, please see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=47405 for information on how to resolve it.

@xevilstar: please run `nvidia-bug-report.sh` after a failed attempt to start X on Linux 2.6.11.5 and attach the generated log file; please also attach /var/log/nvidia-installer.log from a failed installation attempt on Linux 2.6.12-rc1.

I just wanna say that for some reason using this driver let's me enable xcomposite (and run xcompmgr) and i can also play enemy territory with no noticeable slowdown. Before using this driver et would just cause X to crash if i had xcomposite enabled. As far as I'm concerned....great job nvidia!
