@olivn: thank you for your report; please see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...27&postcount=4 for a patch that resolves the kernel BUG(). As to your first problem, does it persist if you disable AGP or use NvAGP, instead of AGPGART (see http://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/L...ppendix-f.html).

I've followed the directions at http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...1&postcount=98 and now I finally have 1.0-8174 working on my laptop. The good news is that both bugs, the DPMS and corrupted console, are gone. On top of that, I have the clear impression the my computer is faster and uses much less memory, even with all the bells and whistles.

Thank you, Lonni.

It seems that my old motherboard does not support AGP X4 correctly but AGP X2 works.
Thanks for your help.

It doesn't bother me much, but I've just noticed tons of the following message on my logs:

NVRM: memory caching type 0x2 not supported for memory space 3!

Should I be worried?

@wschutzer: if everything works fine, these messages aren't necessarily a problem. Normally, however, you shouldn't be seeing these messages; please generate and attach an nvidia-bug-report.log file.

I have the same problem. Using 7174 seems to be the only working solution currently.

I have the very same problem with DPMS. It seems that the backlight won't come back unless I did CTRL-F1 followed by CTRL-F7.

Anybody else out there with the same problems?
I have the same problem on my Dell Latitude D800 and FX 4200 Go. For the screwed text consoles, I got a tip that works at least for me, although it's a manual thing :

get vbetool and type : vbetool vbemode set 3 in a shell. That will restore the consoles.

For the rest I don't know yet.

As I mentioned in a previous post, switching to 1.0-8174 finally fixed the garbled consoles and the DPMS bugs all together. See my post http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...458#post768458. To get 1.0-8174 working with my NV17 [GeForce4 420 Go] (rev a3) I simply followed the instructions at http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...1&postcount=98. It is important to make sure that all the old stuff is completely removed. For that, I found usefull to first run the nvidia-installer --uninstall which comes with the old driver and then run the new nvidia-installer.

Also, vbetool is known not to work on some laptops and it certainly does not work on mine. I have a Toshiba Satellite 1415-S173.

Zander: As to the strange log messages, I am attaching a bug report herein as you asked.

Dec 12 07:41:50 hal kernel: NVRM: loading NVIDIA Linux x86 NVIDIA Kernel Module 1.0-8174 Tue Nov 22 17:48:37 PST 2005

Dec 12 07:41:50 hal kernel: NVRM: Aborting, due to PAT already being configured


@wschutzer: do you get these messages after fresh reboots or only when the NVIDIA kernel module is reloaded without a reboot in between (it shouldn't happen either way, but I'd like to get a better sense for when this is happening)?

Zander,

I might have to run some tests to determine more precely when those messages occur. I rebooted my computer a few hours ago (on account of a yum update) and just now I went through a suspend/resume cycle but so far everything seem to be allright. Perhaps it has to do with some specific program I was running at that time, so I will just keep doing my normal work for a while. I will give you some feedback as soon as possible.

I've been looking, and I don't see it yet, so I'm going to ask.

I can get the 1.0-8174 to compile on 2.6.15-rc5 and 2.6.15-rc5-git1, but not on 2.6.15-rc5-mm1 or 2.6.15-rc5-mm2. Neither could I get 1.0-7676 to compile on the two most recent -mm releases. Does anybody have clues as to what in the mess of -mm changes is busting the nvidia driver since moving to -rc5? Has anybody gotten success here? Duplicated my failure? It doesn't get to uninstalling the old driver; it just goes from 30% to 100% module compile and throws a failure message.

Still working on it - more in a few, incl. logs.

I tried out 1.0-8174, but I wasn't too amazed as it messed up my second display totally. I'm using twinview on geforce 5700 le and no xinerama, xorg-x11-7.0.0-rc3 and Enlightenment DR17 latest cvs build on gentoo, all libs and apps always up to date.

On the second display every program that uses gtk+ got b0rked, text went missing and resizing the app created horizontal lines of random coloured noise. In Firefox (1.0.7 and 1.5 deerpark tested) for example the text in the address type-in disappeared upon page load and most of the links and normal text was invisible. In gmediaplayerclient most entries in playlist were invisible. I tried many combinations of different versions of apps, gtk+, x-libs etc. but only thing that helped was to downgrade nvidia-kernel&glx to 1.0-7676.

I'd do a bug report, but I've no time to upgrade the driver and play with it rite now.
