Default Re: Linux on NForce 430 + GeForce 6150

Wooohaa,

there is a new driver out (1.0-0310) an it "Adds support for nForce 430/410 motherboards". So please, A8N-VM CSM owners, tell us if everything works fine with this driver.

Thank you!

1.0-8xxx is only for video support, right?
So 1.0-0310 should fix the Ethernet and sound problems?

btw, the download-link for the AMD64 version is currently wrong. There you go:
http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/n...-0310-pkg1.run

Hehe, I don't actually have the motherboard that is now supported by 1.0-0310! Just waiting.. patiently.. for video drivers and thought I'd chime in since new chipset drivers were released

In my experience (and some of my friends' too), local apic on uniprocessors support often causes some kernel modules to go bananas.

So, (I repeat: probably this isn't a solution, but you can try as well), maybe you can recompile your own test kernel without lapic support, or boot the system with the "noapic", or "nolapic" (or even both) parameter.

However, kernel support is getting better with each release, so that might be the reason that causes first release candidate of 2.6.15 to work better.

Sorry if this doesn't help,

1. Thank you very much Debian Pinguin! Never say sorry: I was able to play till the end my first MP3. I don't know if is a reliable solution but I will "stress" test it...

# cat /proc/interrupts
CPU0
0: 2753242 XT-PIC timer
1: 5635 XT-PIC i8042
2: 0 XT-PIC cascade
3: 100000 XT-PIC ehci_hcd:usb2
5: 294084 XT-PIC ohci1394, ohci1394, EMU10K1, eth0
7: 534411 XT-PIC ohci_hcd:usb1
8: 0 XT-PIC rtc
12: 59385 XT-PIC i8042
14: 25527 XT-PIC ide0
15: 24015 XT-PIC ide1
NMI: 0
LOC: 0
ERR: 0
MIS: 0

However as you can see the interupts are shared between net and sound... But is working with Gigabyte transfer and playing MP3. May I change the IRQ via module load parameters or just by swapping the PCI cards?

After >20G transfer and 5 mp3s still ok! THANKS MAN!

2. And hello NVidia, thanks for the new drivers but... the link http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/n...-0310-pkg1.run does NOT WORK. ... Now is working again... Hey sysadmin! :-)
And a question NVidia: does it work after a windows reboot? See 3 way I booted on my home computer the window first time after 2 years...

3. As for the beta 1.0-8xxx driver. I tried it with my 6150 / asus. I did the 16MB trick but NO LUCK. I am using SUSE 10.0 (with kernel 2.6.15-rc2) and I try to configure it with "SaX2 -m 0=nvidia". A beautiful 23'' black screen smiles to me. Am I doing something wrong? Did somebody succeeded with the "beta" driver AND a 6150 ??? There would be nice to have a new "beta" just to be sure to have a flawless end version... I would encourage you to adopt for linux as for windows the official betas. That will help everybody! Really!

So happy...

The solution is actually "reliable" (in the sense that it should continue working 'till you reactivate local io-apic), but it has its price: sometimes it will slow down the system responsiveness when doing something "multimedially intesive".
I don't actually know how much it would impact on a modern system, though. I had sort of a 10% difference in fps while playing divx movies on an old athlon-k6 350 with 64 Megs of ram (well, some of which were probably fried...) non 3d accelerated, without the apic interrupt emulation. On my AMD 3000+ laptop I can't see any difference at all.

Generally it should not be a problem to share interrupts, if you rely on a stable and well designed BIOS, so I guess it is not surprising that everything is working. After all now your interrupts are managed by ACPI instead of by an on-chip device often "customized" by motherboard or processors vendors. ACPI is not perfect, but it works in most of the cases.

Well, I'm not an expert, but I'd probably leave them as they are. However, often BIOS provides the necessary customizable IRQ mapping, or it can be changed through the setserial program. Even if the simplest solution wuold definitely be to swap the cards .


Best again,

Default Asus A8N-VM CSM sound is not nforce based

Just a note to A8N-VM CSM owners, because there seems to be some confusion on this point in this thread. This board does not use the nforce sound like you might assume (as I did), instead it has an ad1986a chip. I believe it's supported by the snd-hda-intel driver in the latest ALSA, but I haven't checked this out yet.

So you don't need any updates from nvidia to get sound

Default Re: Linux on NForce 430 + GeForce 6150

Here're some results of my test with my 6100/430-based board GIGABYTE GA-K8N51GMF-9 and the 1.0-0310 driver on FC4 - it has just the same behaviour like the old drivers had:
- module loads with modprobe
- dmesg shows
Nvsound: Nvidia Audio Init Module, 15:12:10 Nov 26 2005 version 1.0-7
- lspci shows the device
00:10.1 Class 0403: nVidia Corporation MCP51 High Definition Audio (rev a2)

nvmixer starts, but if I try to move the sliders I'll receive an error.

secondly I don't hear anything ...

Conclusion: the new drivers are not better than the old ones for my system :-(

Right you are.
The AD1986A chipset is the SoundMax made by Analog Devices. It uses the ALSA drivers. SoundMAX FAQ: Linux Drivers <http://forms.analog.com/Form_Pages/soundMax/soundMaxSupportFAQ.html>

Default Re: Asus A8N-VM CSM sound is not nforce based

could not find any support there,

ad1986a is not listed as a supported device,....
am I missing something ?
http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc...Analog_Devices

or is there a workaround ?

thanks, Robert Schultz

Default Re: Linux on NForce 430 + GeForce 6150

avant,
I've reproduced the problem you're seeing in FC4, and opened bug 200265. Can you please generate & attach an nforce-bug-report.log for review after you've run 'modprobe nvsound' just so that I can verify you're hitting the same issue as I have?

Thanks,
Lonni
