Default Mandriva 2005 LE causes restarts with Geforce 6600gt PCI-Express

Since isntalling 2005LE and installing the latest nvidia drivers, everytime a full screen opengl app tries to work, the computer restarts.

Any clues? This a PCI-Express card on mandriva 2005le....geforce 6600 gt

I have tried both of the 7xxx releases of drivers and both yield same result.

Actually, it's not always opengl, but playing videos sometimes too. I'm fine if doing ANYTHING else.

But it always restarts...sometimes it takes about 30 seconds, sometimes instantly. But it will happen on Enemy Territory, screen savers and some videos I'll play.

Any help or pointers to previous threads will be great!!!

Thanks guys, you've always been helpful. I was die-hard 3dfx until you bought them and have followed you since.

I have the same problem.If you have a 64 bit cpu, in th boot kernel (lilo or grub, add the order: swiotlb 32768 (see a previous thread)
Has someone got a solution for 32bit cpu?

Thank for any answer

Same problem here. Just running glgears causes it to nuke my machine. The screen goes all wacky (like random data is being written to the video buffer) and then after a while a reboot. this is with renderAccell on and off, no difference.

Ok--if you have the following line in your xorg.conf, comment it out (use the "#" before it)

Quote:
Load "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.a"
It gave me about an hour each time to play and then it restarts...so I now have more to work with...unfortunately i no longer get errors on my xorg.0.log so I can't really troubleshoot myself much more...

Hi,

I've got a similar problem, probably the same bug. glxgears causes Xid errors and another app can trigger a system reset.

- vaio fs115m with 6200Go TC graphics (PCI-Express)
- Mandriva installation with included nvidia 7174 drivers
- Mandriva default kernel 2.6.11.6
- same behaviour with Mandrake 10.1 and updated kernel (2.6.11.x)

// I am able to provoke a system reset by loading lots of 3D textures. Haven't checked where the limit is, but when using less textures the bug doesn't show up.

Holy Zander, we all are waiting for a fix!

I've been trying whith an ati radeon 9600 pro ( in a machine where i have an FX5500) for a couple of days and ..... performance sucks.. but I havent got any restart. So it looks like a nvidia driver stuff....

Anyone can turn on a lighter in this dark night??

I would like to use the unprecedent high performance Quadro FX1400.... which costed near 700

I hope that follows helps


A solution

my hardware:
- Mandriva installation with included nvidia 7174 drivers
- Mandriva default kernel 2.6.11.6
- same behaviour with Mandrake 10.1 and updated kernel (2.6.11.x) (for me too )
-Geforce 4 440 GO

THE SOLUTION !!: Put explicitly in Xorg.conf (or XF86config) file the options
Option "IgnoreEDID" "1"
Option "RenderAccel" "0"

Three tries and no reboot
More of 6 hours of UT2004 without reboot YEPEEEEEE

Good luck for everybody
