Default nVidia FX5200, blank screen at X startup

Okay, I'm so lazy now that I paste here exactly the same message at Ubuntuforums.org;

Okayy.. I'm getting a little pissed off.. I had an Ati card before. Couldn't get the drivers working. Then I decided to buy an nVidia card, and ended up to XFX FX5200.

Everything works fine at "nv" driver, except 3d-accel (I think that's normal) and Xorg.0.log gives me few errors:

Code:
jhokkanen@vvivur:~$ sudo grep "(EE)" /var/log/Xorg.0.log 
(WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown. 
(EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found) (EE) xf86OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/wacom 
(EE) xf86OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/wacom 
(EE) xf86OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/wacom 
(EE) xf86OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/wacom 
(EE) xf86OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/wacom 
(EE) xf86OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/wacom

Well, all the errors disappear when I change to Dapper's own driver or the nVidia's one. Sounds fine to this point, right? Everything starts up normally to the point where KDM should start. I get only blank screen, and the monitor goes to suspend mode (or similiar..). I have tried with four different monitors, so the monitor is not probably broken.
It sounds like the computer is doing something, but I can't do anything. When I move the mouse, the mouse's light starts up, so it's recognized. I can also put numlock, caps lock etc. on, but can't siwtch to other tty's.
So only thing how to fix this is to go to safe mode and do a dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg. I have to also view the Xorg.0.log at this point, so I don't know does there come some errors to it while starting X.

Did I forget something important... Guess not.

Here are my specs:
Athlon Xp 2800+
XFX FX5200
512mb
Kubuntu Dapper 6.06 with k7 kernel

Please generate and post an nvidia-bug-report.log.

Thanks,

According to your bug report, you're using the 'nv' X driver, and not the 'nvidia' X driver.

No, it's the "nvidia" driver what I used when I did this bug report.
See this part of the log at xorg.conf:
Quote:
Section "Device"
Identifier "NVIDIA Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5200]"
Driver "nvidia"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection
But I used the fast way and used Dapper's own "nvidia" driver, not the one you can get from nVidia's website, because everytime I install it, it does exactly the same thing that Dapper's own, and I have to reinstall the kernel I'm using with nVidia's own driver.

But if you need, I can install the nVidia's own driver and create the bug report with it.

The X log in the bug report shows the 'nv' driver is in use, not the nvidia X driver. I'll need you to provide a bug report which captures the problem you're reporting.

Thanks,
Lonni

How the hell do I do that if it won't change the driver even if I change it from xorg.conf?
And why does it freeze with the log I provided if it still uses the "nv" driver that does not freeze?

Okay, I installed the nVidia's own driver and booted with it and made a bug report log. It's on the attachment.

Thanks, here is the problem:
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Unable to get display device CRT-0's EDID; cannot compute DPI
(WW) NVIDIA(0): from EDID.
(WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (2, 3, 0x8000, 0x00000694, 0x00000d4c, 0)

A few things that you can try are:
0) Set NvAGP to 0 in your xorg.conf
1) Verify that you're using the latest BIOS
2) Test with a newer kernel
3) Try booting with the noapic and/or acpi=off kernel parameters

Thanks,
Lonni

THANK YOU, LONNI! Thank you.. <3
The NvAGP 0 option worked! Everything (3d too) seems to be working nice, except when I enter command glxinfo it gives me long list of something weird.. Is it normal? Direct rendering seems to be yes, at least..

Default Re: nVidia FX5200, blank screen at X startup

Yes, that is the expected output from glxinfo.

If setting NvAGP to 0 fixes this, then you're hitting an agp driver bug. You can try experimenting with different values for NvAGP to see if another value (1,2 or 3) might work as well. You can also try to reduce the AGP rate in the BIOS instead of setting NvAGP, if possible, or set a lower rate within the driver (see the README for instructions).

Thanks,
Lonni

Okay, glad to hear that it's normal. I just got scared because at my old Ati card it gave about five lines, not fifty.

Could be there any advantages by using different numbers at NvAGP or by changing AGP setting from BIOS compared to NvAGP 0 setting?
