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

Hello,

Since i have bought a 6600GT card, i try to connect my TV through a composite connexion but the picture is into black and white ...

I've just installed the 8174 driver but it's still into black and white ...

When my computer is booting, the picture on the TV is good but when the driver has booted the picture is into black and white.

I tried to put Option "TVOutFormat" "COMPOSITE" in the xorg.conf but no picture on the TV !

My xorg.conf :

# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig

You're in France, right? I might be entirely lost here, but did you try using SÉCAM as TV-standard?

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.

The lastest driver works just great. Thanks

On the Debian I must just link libglx.so to the lib64 after each driver installation

Quote:
ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so /usr/X11R6/lib64/modules/extensions/libglx.so
ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so.1.0.8174 /usr/X11R6/lib64/modules/extensions/libglx.so.1.0.8174
And after first installation (if this links not exist):
Quote:
ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.o /usr/X11R6/lib64/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.o
ln -s /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.so /usr/X11R6/lib64/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.so
Before installation is also needed to remove debian packages which provides nvidia driver (nvidia-glx )


------


If you use chroot-32bit then is needed to download lastest 32bit driver, unpack (with the option -x) and copy :
Quote:
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8174-pkg1/usr/X11R6/lib/libXvMCNVIDIA.so.1.0.8174
to YOUR_CHROOT_DIR/usr/X11R6/lib/libXvMCNVIDIA.so.1.0.8174
You must also update links :
Quote:
cd YOUR_CHROOT_DIR/usr/X11R6/lib/
ln -s libXvMCNVIDIA.so.1.0.8174 libXvMCNVIDIA.so.1
ln -s libXvMCNVIDIA.so.1 libXvMCNVIDIA.so
And copy the rest:
Quote:
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8174-pkg1/usr/X11R6/lib/libXvMCNVIDIA.a
to YOUR_CHROOT_DIR/usr/X11R6/lib/libXvMCNVIDIA.a

NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8174-pkg1/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/*
to YOUR_CHROOT_DIR/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/.


NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8174-pkg1/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/*
to YOUR_CHROOT_DIR/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/.
After that I was able to start all 32bit games in 32bit chroot it is usefull if you need to use f.ex.: artsdsp

Works great with the latest stock kernels but when I run the installer against kernel 2.6.15-rc5-mm2 from www.kernel.org it builds ok but I get the following errors when I try to load the nvidia.ko module:

-> Kernel module load error: insmod: error inserting './usr/src/nv/nvidia.ko':
-1 Unknown symbol in module
-> Kernel messages:
nvidia: Unknown symbol pci_bus_read_config_byte
nvidia: Unknown symbol pci_enable_device
nvidia: Unknown symbol pci_dev_put
....

I did some searching and quite a few people seem to be having this problem though I haven't found a soluiton yet. Is there a patch for the new kernels or am I missing something in my build process? This is my first kernel build. The new kernel works fine with the exception of the nvidia driver incompatibility.

@fozner: recent -mm* kernels deliberately break compatibility with non-GPL licensed modules by applying a patch from Greg Kroah Hartmann that exports core PCI symbols to GPL-licensed modules, only. Please see recent LKML traffic for details.

Wow I just stepped into the crossfire. I'd better don my flak jacket! Here's to clinging to a naive hope that someday things like legal battles don't stand in the way of end users actually using hardware to play games and watch videos they bought.

Edit: Thanks for the timely and informative response, btw.

pm..

Don't know if it's too late to respond, and I don't think anyone else answered your question.

What you have reported is not an error. If you've got kernel-source (up-to-date), make, and gcc, you're all set.

Just press ok and the installer will compile the interface it seems to need.

At least that worked for me, installing under suse 32-bit and with the 64-bit version.

cheers!

Well, I just got a new 6600GT. I had an ATI card previously. Just want to say thanks to NVIDIA for such awesome Linux support. I am very pleased and will recommend you to all my friends/familly.

Hmm, that utterly sucks. Still better than ATI though, at least from a performance point of view.
