No patches, just the latest 2.6.11.2 vanilla kernel... Runs great so far.

i'll wait til GPU Temperature-related Power Management (assumed) problems go away before upgrading my drivers :-\

Yeah, unfortunately that's one negative thing I noticed. My GPU temps are about 10-12C higher.. not sure if that's the actual temp or just a bug. Been hearing the guys running windows w/ some of the later beta drivers have this problem too...

yep, been reading about that for a long while now in the windows forums. I do not have the bug, though I think it is a 6800GT-only bug isnt it? I have a 6800NU.

I dont think the temp is accurate. If the temp is 71 in Linux and i boot to windows its 60. There is no way it cools down 10 degrees in 30 seconds.

actually it can.. i've seen mine cool down VERY VERY quickly right after playing a game.. like 10C in almost 20secs or less...

Default Re: 1.0-7167 for Linux x86 released

from all of the posts ive read about this, it appears to me that it is a driver bug in which the driver spins down the fan too much during normal operation, thus higher core temperatures. As some windows users noticed, a work-around was to OC the core by 1mhz so the driver would boost the fan speed or something... I'm not sure this is the case, but it's what I gather from a majority of the posts. hehe

... Rumor has it (as posted in the forceware forum) that all new driver builds after some recent date will not have this bug. I could have been on mushrooms when I read that though

Has nothing to do with the fan. I have a 6800GT with a zalman vf700 and the fan is connected to the mobo NOT the fan header on the graphcs card.
An apart from all the other ailments commented above, it is also about 10 degrees C higher than normal.
<rant>I got it to work but doom3 and quake3 cause hardlock's. funny tho ut2004 and enemy territory work fine</rant>
Changed back to 6629 since 7167 does not offer any feature that I was missing.

For those whose X freezes at the KDE splash screen: same here & the funny thing is, that it's *exactly* ksplash which makes X freeze. The rest of KDE seems to work. You can edit $KDEDIR/bin/startkde so that it doesn't start ksplash, and KDE will boot up normally. But then, every attempt to use COMPOSITE will instantly freeze the machine again. Even opening one website in konqueror froze it. This release is much too unreliable for me, if it can be brought down by a trivial application like ksplash. I can't trust it. Back to 6629.

Question Re: 1.0-7167 for Linux x86 released

@zander

I have tried 2 different brand 6600GTs. PNY and XFX. Both have dual DVI outputs.

After playing something 3d, but it could happen in 2d (takes a much longer time), both my screens go blank.

Screens display "No signal, check cable"
Machine in hardlocked. Cannot ssh into it, etc.

in /var/log/messages I get msgs like this:
Code:

I tried 6629 & 7167, 6600GT is supported in only those 2 versions.

I went as far as measuring my power usage with a multimeter, disconnecting all unnecessary devices and I still get the error, thinking maybe it was power related. My motherboard specs claim it has all the supporting features.

Giga-Byte: GA-7DPXDW-P motherboard

450watt PSU
dual amd 2800+
1xPNY 6600GT AGP
2xSATA WD raptor drives
2xATA/133 maxtor drives
1xSony DVD+/-RW
1xPCI/66 intel gigabit ethernet
1xPCI/66 promise SATA
1xPCI sound blaster audigy
1xPCI via usb2 card
1xPCI hauppauge tv tuner

My calculations were: 121.0 volts from wall socket * ~3.0 amps under load == 363watts, 121.0 * ~2.6 amps idle == 320watts

In the readme, there is another Gigabyte board listed with AGP problems. Not sure if mine is the same...

On a side note, I have been running with a Leadtek 6800 since august 13, 2004 with not one lockup. I wanted to switch for the dual DVI, as I now have 2 LCD displays...

According the multimeter reading, the 6800 and 6600 seem to draw about the same amount of power both idle and under load, within a few watts.

What I basically would like from someone like zander, is their thoughts whether it is hardware or software (driver) related, so I know whether or not to keep the card.

I have also tried an updated BIOS from http://www.mvktech.net, but with the updated BIOS, only one DVI port works, so i had to go back to the factory BIOS.

thanks so much. you time is appreciated.

cheers,
joe

@legalos: ouuu, I had those Xids on my Inno3D GeForce 6800 Ultra. Now I have 7167 driver and I haven't had any Xid yet.

any idea why the driver still uses AGPGART ? (I use the patch from zander)

and another question, why isn't "Fast Writes" enabled ?

thx
