Lonni,
I tried adding the 3 parameters that you mentioned and
didn't have much luck. I started "glxgears" and also started
Firefox and before I could even get a web page, everything
froze (i.e. can't move the mouse, can't type anything) so
I had to reboot.

Here is my grub file:
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
#
# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file
# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that
# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.
# root (hd0,0)
# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
# initrd /initrd-version.img
#boot=/dev/sda
default=0
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
hiddenmenu
title Fedora Core (2.6.16-1.2080_FC5)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.16-1.2080_FC5 ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet noapic acpi=off pci=conf1
initrd /initrd-2.6.16-1.2080_FC5.img

Lonni,
No luck at all using the combinations mentioned above. I am using an ASUS
A8R-MVP with BIOS version 0402. Do you have access to this model in your labs
there at Nvidia? If so, are you able to recreate the same problem?

I'm afraid that I do not have this motherboard here. It looks like a new BIOS (0503) was released a few days ago. Can you give that a try?

Thanks,
Lonni

Lonni,
As I expected, the new BIOS (0503) didn't improve anything. At this
time, I think I am going to continue using the default "nv" driver
that is supplied with Fedora Core 5. Although it doesn't support 3D,
it works. By the way, my PC is dual-bootable and the WindowsXP side works
flawlessly, so it's obviously a compatibility issue with my 7300GS and FC5.
Thanks for your help, but I'm going to stop. Maybe 6 months from now I'll give it another try, but I'm not very impressed with this nvidia driver and how it works with FC5.... :-(

I can throw some support behind the crashes too.

Asus K8V with AMD64 3200+ & 1GB RAM

GeForce 6200A with 256Mb RAM AGP card

X crashes the entire system every time it starts. I don't get the logo or anything. When using my old GeForce2 MX400 card, I'd get a white screen crash. The 6200A is a black screen crash. From my limited knowledge of the X logs, there isn't anything terribly interesting of note in there. There are some numeric entries in about nvidia, but I don't understand what the numbers mean.

I've done a clean install of the 8756 drivers on an updated Fedora Core 5 system. The installation came from the packaged nvidia RPM's available on the livna repository.

I read the stuff about updating BIOS, so I'm now on level 1007 for my motherboard. No joy.

Anyone know more about these types of crash?

The gutting this is that I only bought the 6200A yesterday as I thought the MX400 was too old to be supported by the drivers (despite being on the supported list).

Cheers

Duncan

Lonni,
I just noticed that you entered a bug 227803 associated with Nvidia 6200 and ATI RS480/482 chipset incompatibilities. Guess what? My motherboard has the ATIRS480 chipset. Notice the first entry after running /sbin/lspci on my
ASUS A8R-MVP motherboard:

[root@localhost sbin]# /sbin/lspci

[root@localhost sbin]# exit

Do you know how long it will take for this bug to get fixed?
I am able to use the default "nv" that comes with Fedora Core 5, but
I REALLY would like to have the 3D acceleration....

Regards,
Tony

I'm afraid that I can't provide a resolution timeframe right now.

Thanks,

You are using livna packages drives? his rpms do tweak the xorg.cong file. look at it (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and see if it not messed up with.
