hi Sorry I forgot to mention, I also tried this http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=62021 and it did not work.

I cannot work out why I could "Never!!" install this driver no matter which kernel or distro I tried.
Any Ideas??

Peter.

ptrbee1,
The last installer log you posted contained errors that are usually present when the patch hasn't been applied. If you've already applied the cumulative patch, please post an updated installer log.

Thanks,
Lonni

You've attached an installer log which shows 1.0-8178 was successfully installed.

Hi lonni, I'm trying not to be rude here but have you read any of my post???
The driver installs, I said the driver installs okay. but unless you can suggest a method for me to use my notebook with a BLACK as in blank as in no display on the screen then the driver IS NOT DOING WHAT IT IS MEANT TO DO!!! Everyone else that latched onto any of my orriginal post with the same problem say the same thing

Peter,
You stated that with 1.0-7676 everything works, yet with 1.0-817x, it does not work. I requested a bug report against 1.0-7676 to compare the working versus the non-working setups. Can you point me to where you've posted the bug report from 1.0-7676?

Thanks,
Lonni

Question Re: 81.78 driver system hard locks on reboot 8xxxseries driver

Hi Loni,

Any luck since i posted the 7676 bug report??? I reinstalled fc5 on my spare drive again in case you needed info from there. Also someon in another forum suggested i try this
Quote:
Theres an option you can put in the driver section of xorg.conf I cant remember what it is so you will have to look in the documentation something like NVAGP=0/1, I set it to 0 (no AGP) and it now says PCI (which the laptop uses) and the drivers work real good.. (I am not at that computer at the moment so cant lookup the file).
i tried options (0,1,2, & 3) no joy

You attached the 1.0-7676 installer log, not the bug report. I'll need you to generate an nvidia-bug-report.log.

Thanks,
Lonni

1.0-8756 has been officially released:
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=67864

If this problem persists with 1.0-8756, please post the bug report that I requested from 1.0-7676.

Thanks

Hi Loni,

Th problem persist i have attached the bug report for 7676 & 2.6.15 kernel. Do you also want the bug report for 7676 patched & 2.6.16 kernel? I also tried to ssh with 8756 installed to generat a bugreport for you but the script starts & just sits there.

Peter
