Default My X server fails to start: Suse 10.0 on Shuttle SD31P + GeForce 6200

Hello,

After installing the Nvidia driver (8178-pkg2) for the GeForce 6200 TurboCache, I get this error:

(EE) NVIDIA(0): The NVIDIA kernel module does not appear to be receiving
(EE) NVIDIA(0): interrupts generated by the NVIDIA graphics device.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Please see the FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS section in the
(EE) NVIDIA(0): README for additional information.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA graphics device!
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***
(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

I tried to boot with those kernel parameters: pci=noacpi pci=biosirq noapic acpi=off
But no way, I can not get my X server working with the "nvidia" driver.

It "works" with the "vesa" driver but I can not enjoy glx...

Can the integrated 945G/P Graphics Port be at the origin of the IRQ conflicts?

How can I solve this error?

I attached the "nvidia-bug-report.log.zip" file.

Please let me know,

Thanks,

Jacques.

It looks like IRQ 129 might be the root of the problem:

NVRM: loading NVIDIA Linux x86_64 NVIDIA Kernel Module 1.0-8178 Wed Dec 14 16:58:07 PST 2005
irq 129: nobody cared (try booting with the "irqpoll" option)

Disabling IRQ #129

Based on your bug report, you have both USB and eth0 sharing IRQ 129.

Here are a few things that you can try, however this is likely a BIOS/kernel issue:
0) Change vga=0x31a to vga=normal (and reboot)
1) Upgrade to a much newer kernel (2.6.15.x)
2) Verify that you're using the latest BIOS for the motherboard
3) See if you can reassign IRQs in the BIOS for the NIC and/or USB controller(s).

Thanks,
Lonni

0) Does the file I have to modify is: /proc/cmdline?

Where can I find the "vga" parameter?
How can I modify it?

Thanks.

I added "irqpoll pci=noacpi pci=biosirq noapic" to my boot parameters modifying /boot/grub/menu.lst and it's now woking fine!

Thanks.
