Default Re: 1.0-7167 for Linux x86 released

In search of my own problems with freezing x, I check what everyone els is doing.
That's when I got over this last post here, and tried the
cat /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status then I get
status: disabled

Could this be why X is freezing after it shows me the nvidia logo?

(Debian/sid/unstable) kernel: 2.6.11.2

@KillerGod2000: Fast Writes are better disabled (performance gain is minimal and the system might get unstable)

Kudos to NVIDIA!

My FC3 2.6.10-1.770_FC3smp system used to freeze / spontaneously reboot about 1/3 of the time with the 6629 driver. I upgraded to 7167 and so far it hasn't happened once! Not only that, but UT2004 seems to run with less lag, especially at the start of the level.

Nice job guys!

As I am no Linux expert myself and reading all these problems, I think I'd better ask a few things before installing this driver.

1. Is TwinView fixed? In 6229 and before whatever I did the tv-out always became my primary screen and my tft the secondary. Also the background image was stretched, which if I go by how twinview works on Windows, should not happen.
2. Can I attach my tv to my card while running X and will it be recognized perhaps by pressing a simple 'apply' button? Until now I had to restart X every time before I got any signal on my tv.

Thanks in advance.

(I had constant freezes, and Xid crap until I disabled fast wires and set agp to 2x on my crappy old VIA motherboard (Asus A7v133). Perhaps some could try this as well, might solve your prob )

ok, thx

but why use the driver AGPGART ?

I think the performance isn't as it should for my system ...

- AMD 2700+
- 1024 MB RAM
- 6800GT (Leadtek A400GT)
Code:
(~)$ glxgears
46318 frames in 5.0 seconds = 9263.600 FPS
52717 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10543.400 FPS
52481 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10496.200 FPS
52556 frames in 5.0 seconds = 10511.200 FPS

Hoi all!

Just installed 7167, and it still doesnt solve my problem, so I decided I finally register here, and ask help :>

So my problem is the following:

- with nvidia driver 5336 + 2.4.x kernel, quake3 ran fine.
- with 5336+ drivers under 2.4.x, quake3 was flickery.
- under 2.6.10, i can only install drivers 6629 or greater, and quake3 is flickery.

So either something is bad on my side, or nvidia made an extension that fcks up my system.

I've an 1.1 Ghz cpu and a Gef2 MX 400 [leet, yea :] . Still, quake3 is flickery and glxgears results EXTREMLY BAD results:
60 frames in 5.0 seconds = 12.000 FPS
71 frames in 5.0 seconds = 14.200 FPS
76 frames in 5.0 seconds = 15.200 FPS
64 frames in 5.0 seconds = 12.800 FPS
68 frames in 5.0 seconds = 13.600 FPS

... So what can be the problem? Driver is configured well in my opinion. xfree86 log shows the driver being loaded. libgl.so.1 and other files point to the good drivers. Quake3's "driver info" shows that it uses GLX, and it uses the nvidia driver... nvidia-settings show that glx and opengl is working . 4x AGP is enabled ... I'm out of ideas...

Any help is appreciated!
Thanx

hmm, using rotation makes my box freeze... The screen freezes after a few seconds and I can only move my mouse cursor. Solution? The resolution seems to be wrong, too. How can I change this? Just add 1024x1280 mode to my xorg.conf?
I'm using 2.6.10, latest nvidia drivers, xorg 6.8.2 and KDE 3.3.2. My card is a FX5900.

I use NVidia's AGP driver and my results are approx. 12000 FPS (P4 2.4GHz, 1792MB RAM, GF6800 Ultra - on AGP 4x only). I have worse perfomance with AGPGART.

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
That was weird... I just overclocked my GPU core a bump above stock and what do you know? My temps went back to normal (55C).. Of course, it didn't last long. I had a hard lock within 30 sec. A slightly older than latest CVS build of nvclock worked great under the 6629 drivers. I could overclock to my windows settings and game for hours that way. Interesting nonetheless...
