cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.8.1-24mdk

ll /usr/src/
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 19 Feb 27 18:49 linux -> linux-2.6.8.1-24mdk/
drwxr-xr-x 21 root root 4096 Mär 6 16:32 linux-2.6.8.1-24mdk/

So source does match kernel exactly. It must be a driverprob as older nvidia packages are still working to install.

Attached is nvidia-installer.log
maybe of interest for analysis

I got the same error when installing 7167 on linux 2.6.11 and like wise got unknown apg specific symbol errors in nvidia-installer.log.

I fixed the problem by recompiling the kernel without agpart support.

Thanks for info on patched 6111, but I need x86_64 version. Anyone know where to find that? Thanks.

Under the previous (6629) drivers, I got 7800FPS under GLX Gears. With the new 7167 driver I'm getting 5200FPS.

Sun Microsystems WS1100Z
AMD Opteron 150
1gb ECC Ram
NVidia 6600GT AGP
Ubuntu Hoary (Debian) GNU/Linux with Kernel 2.6.10-4-386 32-bit

That's interesting. I just tried Nvidia's AGP driver to see if I would get better frame rates on my Nforce 2 ultra board, and saw frame rates *below* what they were with the AGPGart module after the patch for that issue. Go figure...

My system still freezes. There is a bug in the driver since version 6111. The old 5336 works perfectly, but with newer versions my system freezes after some minutes.
This problem is discussed often like in this thread: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=47502

I hope on my new computer everything works.

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.
I am having the same issues with KDE. I was going through all the usual of recompiling cvs updates to KDE 3.4-cvs thinking it was something wrong with my compiling. That was done because Gnome worked fine, just selected kde apps broke down. Things like the ksplash, konqueror on some accounts and konsole. I had to go back to the 6629 drivers also. The kernel I am using is 2.6.11.3. I even disabled agpgart and still no luck.
If all is working across the board with other window managers maybe it's an issue with KDE. I've seen no bug reports on any of the KDE mailing lists, so I'm unaware if they know this issue exists.

Okay, Not too sure here what to say so ill try and get all this right,
I am running slackware 10.1 (current) on a Dell Inspiron 2650 laptop

Everything compiles fine as far as i can tell, it installs fine, etc.. looking at my links and such everything is in the right directorys as far as i can tell in the right spots.

When I go to start kde it basicly hangs the system completly I see no "EE" or "WW"'s in my xorg logs anywhere that I look that could give me a hint of some sort as to what is going on, I cant even shell in remotly its hung so badly, its that infamous black screen that ive read about a few times.

The most up to date combination of driver and kernel i can get this to work on is 2.6.8.1 and 6111, I cant seem to move to either a newer driver on the 2.6.8.1 or a newer kernel with the older drivers.

Since ive tried various combinations up to and including 2.6.11.2 for the kernel and this 7167 version of the driver, I am starting to wonder if I accidently checked something in my kernel i shouldnt of, any idea's here for me what to look for that might be screwing this up?

One thing i have not tried that I seem a bit lost on, is using NVagp to use this do i compile a new kernel with out a module for agpgart? and change the line in the config file to force it to use it for xorg? Or do i leave it running with the nvidia module also loaded from boot? I guess ill play with that today and see what happens.

No. It's never an application's fault if it crashes the kernel, the X-server, or the graphics card driver. Those are supposed to protect themselves from input that they can't digest. If they don't, it's a bug in the kernel/X-sever/driver.

I successfully installed the 1.0-7167 driver today. My box is:

Athlon XP2700
512 Mb Ram
GeForce 4 Ti 4600
kernel Mandrake 2.6.10-1mdk

I could not install from the installer as it could not find the sources.
I could not install with the '--add-this-kernel' option as it could not
find the sources.

Remedy:-

edit /etc/inittab - change init from 5 to 3 (single user mode)
reboot
log in as root
rmmod nvidia
modprobe -q agpart
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7167-pkg1.run -e

Accept the default settings except name the kernel sources as
/usr/src/linux(your kernel)

edit /etc/inittab - change init from 3 (single user mode) to 5 (gui mode)

reboot

A little bit messy but works fine

Je suis developpeur d'application openGL, j'ai installé le driver sur ma machine (mdk 10.1, xorg 6.8.1), compil, install sans problème.

J'ai testé la rotation, et la aussi, ça fonctionne bien.

Par contre j'ai constaté deux bugs en utilisation openGl

1/ la fonction glBlendColor fait planter l'appli (segfault)

2/ je n'ai plus aucune capacité au niveau langage de shading, plus aucune de mes application en Cg ou en glsl ne fonctionne, le driver raconte que la carte ne sait pas faire, or la carte est une FX5950, et jusque la ça marchait très bien, pour info j'utilise la dernière version de Cg (la 1.3)

est ce que c'est spécifique à mon install ?, d'autres qui ont installé ce driver arrivent à faire tourner des appli Cg (ou glsl) sur leur système ?

Merci
