Default Re: 1.0-8174 for Linux x86-64 released

The latest FC4 kernel is roughly on par with 2.6.14.3

Thanks,
Lonni

Default Re: 1.0-8174 for Linux x86-64 released

Maybe I'm being a complete noob here, but I can't get the installer to work. I've installed nvidia drivers on a variety of linux systems before, just not very many x86_64 systems.

I installed a fresh copy of Mandriva 2006 Free tonight, installed the kernel source RPM for 2.6.12-12mdk, downloaded the 8174 driver, and then ran "sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8174-pkg2.run" from the directory I downloaded the driver to (as root).

It fails doing it that way - as well as extracting the files and trying from the directory, fails if I do --kernel-source-path=/usr/src/linux/, etc.

I'm happy to try whatever and then post log files if need be. Attached is the install log file that I get with the standard "sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-8174-pkg2.run".

Thanks in advance for any help.

Thank you for NOT fixing the important issues, yes I am very glad that now you support the latest xxy8676FGxxyy cards from out of space. But I would also like to see that you fix some real problems like this Xid and broken fb console.
On my system(which is PCI Express) I get no Xid errors, although if I remember correctly the Xid errors effected AGP systems. Anyway I remember reading awhile back that the reason people are getting these errors is because of some error in X.org, nvidia helped the X.org team patch it and it should be fixed in X.org 7.0 which comes out next week.

I would just like to say Thank You!

For the first time in MANY versions, my laptop's GF 4MX does not freeze when I enable RenderAccel.

@crz, netllama Thanks for the hints, tested it, but unfortunately it doesn't work with the 2.6.14-1.1644_FC4 kernel.

Thank you so much guys!
I've been waiting for a stable Linux/x86-64 driver since kernel 2.6.11.
Greetings from Germany, keep up the good work,

I was very excited to see "Rotate" given as a feature in this driver release, however unfortunately it's still broken for the high-end stuff.

For DVI or Analog 1280x1024 flatpanels, "Rotate" works great.

For DVI or Analog 1600x1200 flatpanels, "Rotate" causes a kernel panic.

This is on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Update 6 on single, dual and dual dual-core Opteron systems with an NVS-280 AGP video card. [these are the workstations I support at work]

Has anybody else seen this? Any ideas?

@skaven: if you find a problem like this, please create a new thread with a detailed description of the problem (including reproduction steps, if possible), as well as the Oops output and a nvidia-bug-report.log file (please also see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=46678). We need this information in order to be able to investigate the problem.

I need some 430/6100 help - Suse 10 32/64. I can not install any nVidia drivers since I have no Internet connection (Linux) as yet. Downloading the 8174 driver gives me a "Noprecompiled kernal interface..." error message when attempting to install. How do I get this thing installed - any help is appreciated.

pm..

I reinstalled the 7676 drivers and still the problems remain. So, I have an unstable system now, I can have an unstable system with MicroShaft Windows, this is unacceptable in the UNIX world.

What is Nvidia doing if anything to rectify the problem?
maybe you guys have just flaky hardware?
I never had Xid errors with my 5200 and had not one so far with my 6600.

Gigabyte Nforce3 (GA-K8NSC-939), AMD 64 3000+, OCZ Premium 2-2-2-5 (2 x 512), MSI 5900 XT, Maxtor SATA 2 x 80 gig, Antec True Power 2.0 480w, Dell 20" W 2005fpw. Except the video card all the parts are no older than three months. Fedora Core 4. Running Linux on my desktop since 1997, this is the first time I've had problems with Nvidia's drivers. The only thing I can do now is format and reinstall Fedora and NOT install the 8xxx series drivers. I've already gone through by hand and removed all references of the drivers and reinstalled the 7676 drivers, but the problem still remains. Perhaps someone from Nvidia could shed some light on the subject.

Hi,

Antec is known for bad PSU's.
Look at anandtech - they had the news some days before, that many tyan boards don't work with Antec, because of bad voltages.
So buy a good one, like Enermax.
The board could be the culprit, or the video card too.
