Default Black screen with [GeForce 6200] on Mandriva 2006

Hi,

I have installed Linux Mandriva 2006 on my AMD64 (3200+) PC with nForce4 chipset (Assus motherboard) and GeForce 6200 on PCI express.

Xorg works fine with default "nv" driver.
If was well working with the old nvidia driver version (7*** something) on 1024*768.

If have patched my kernel with 2.6.12-14 version.
If have downloaded nvidia 8176 driver and patched it with "8178-U011106".

Everything is ok : compilation, loading module, no error, no warning.

I got "load glx" in xorg.cong and also "nvidia" for the driver.

When I launch X with 1024*768 resolution, I got a black screen and no error message from X or the kernel, but it works with 800*600... !!!

I notice that compare to before, the NVIDIA logo does not appear at X statup ...

BUT : my screen configuration is ok because I change only "nvidia" by "nv", I works fine on 1024 *768 ...

I don't know what to do to be with nvidia driver with 1024*768 resolution ????

I've tried to change the screen frequencies, but nothing works ...

Thanks for your help.

Please start X with the following command:
startx -- - logverbose 5

and then generate and provide a bug report.

Thanks,
Lonni

What you posted is not a bug report, its an X log. However, that X log indicates that you're using the 'nv' X driver, and not the nvidia X driver.

If you're having a problem with the nvidia X driver, please provide the bug report that I requested.

Thanks,
Lonni

Oops :-)

The log is wrong because it has been overwritten when I launch X with nv driver to be able to post ;-)

Here is the new : Xorg.0.log

Where is the verbose result with your command : I got nothing ?

Here is the result of nvidia-bug-report.sh : report.zip

Regards.

According to the X log you just posted, X is running at 1024x768. Why do you believe that its not?

Also, your bug report is still against the 'nv' X driver.

The new bug report doesn't have the verbose X log that I requested, however it still shows that X is running at 1024x768. Why do you believe that its not?

Thanks for your help, but it is my problem : it is configured for 1024*768, X works, I obtain a black screen

The configuration in the files above works with 800*600 only !!

With the SAME configuration but with driver "nv" instead of driver "nvidia", it works in 1024*768.

Where is the result of "startx -- -logverbose 5", I don't understand.

Thanks for your help.

The result of "startx -- -logverbose 5" is in the X log, which is captured in a bug report.

According to your X log, the size of the display isn't in the EDID. Have you tried adding the DisplaySize parameter to the Monitor section of your xorg.conf?

Also, have you tried adding an explicit mode to the Screen section of your xorg.conf?

Thanks,
Lonni

So, here is the result with verbose : Xorg.0.log

I have'nt try with DisplaySize because I don't know what it is...

I think it is something DPI*1024/100 and DPI*768/100 ?

Regards.
