Default Re: 1.0-7167 for Linux x86-64 released

"ioctl32(doom.x86:6747): Unknown cmd fd(16) cmd(c0384642){00}
arg(ffffc75c) on /dev/nvidiactl"

does that also fix:

"ioctl32(wine:12895): Unknown cmd fd(20) cmd(c0384642){00} arg(55d625a0) on /dev/nvidiactl"

can't seem to install em right now, using ubuntu on amd64 ( http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=19789 ), I could download everything and fix it manually but I'd like to use the ubuntu system to stay with updates and such easily.

So I'm not gonna bother unless it'll help

@mrn: yes, the current release fixes all NVIDIA driver related ioctl32() error messages of the form "ioctl32(<name>:<PID>): Unknown cmd fd(<fd>) cmd(c0384642){00} arg(<address>) on /dev/nvidiactl"; as to the installation problem, it seems you're trying to install the Linux/x86 version of the driver on Linux/x86-64.

Issues with this release.

nvidia-settings doesn't work any more:

[alistair] 15:05 [~] nvidia-settings
Segmentation fault

Nor does xdriinfo:

[alistair] 15:05 [~] xdriinfo
Segmentation fault

XRANDR works barely but with RenderAccel enabled we're back to the old days of horrible 100% CPU X server lockups (I reported this THREE TIMES already, it seems to have regressed!). It doesn't scale to the correct resolution, even if I add 1024x1280 to my modelines.

GL performance is marginally better, but altogether I think this is quite a buggy release. Just waiting on more issues.

[quote=SiliconSlick]On my R3000Z running FC2 currently using 7167
I put the following in /etc/modprobe.conf

options nvidia NVreg_Mobile=0

YES! Thank you! That did it.

Should I just buy a new graphics card to avoid the "screen frozen, but mouse pointer moves" bug?
for more infos to that see this thread:
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=47502

anyone here have a clue whats the problem? or a workaround?

Default Re: 1.0-7167 for Linux x86-64 released

I've just run some tests with off-screen rendering (via Java3D), and compared to the last release, performance seems to have dropped badly. Anyone else suffered from this?
Kit: dual opteron, GeForce Quadro FX 700 (AGP - think it's a 700 model! 128Mb RAM on board)

e.g. tri-stripped dataset (approx. 950k triangles, ~2k nodes in scenegraph) was 35.8 mtri/sec, is now 11.8 mtri/sec!!!
Other egs: 500kpoly dataset (~22k nodes in scenegraph) was giving 3.2 mtri/sec, now 2.7 mtri/sec

Odd! :-(

On the other hand, the old RIVA TNT cards now work again :-)

Any other x86-64 users getting kernel hangs with fc3, 2.6.11, 7167, and the new enemy-territory 2.60?

About once an hour I get a system hang, the screen goes black, and after a few
seconds the LCD panel goes into sleep mode (i.e. no video signal).

Anyone else?

I noticed a significant slow down down with the ("old") Enemy Terrirtory.

My FPS dropped from an average of 60 with the 6629 driver to about an
average of 15 FPS with the 7167 driver.

I went back to 6629.

This is on a Compaq 3000Z laptop with a AMD64 3000+ and
a 64MB Geforce4 440 Go.

At some point I'll study this more using the benchmark
described here:
