Default Re: Gentoo, nvidia-drivers 9631 - X fatal server error

Thanks for the quick reply, and trying to help me out

I am using MYTHTV (which is a opensource PVR software www.mythtv.org, I think it uses a combination of mplayer and it's own internal movie player) The content I am trying to watch is UK DTT recordings (normally 704x576,using MPEG2 codec saved as Program Streams)

In the orginal first post nvidia-debug-log shows the following

(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so
(II) Module glx: vendor="NVIDIA Corporation"
compiled for 4.0.2, module version = 1.0.9631
Module class: X.Org Server Extension
ABI class: X.Org Server Extension, version 0.1
(II) Loading extension GLX


But this crashed the xorg before it started, soon after the initialisation (again you can see that in the log)

Removing the loading of the nvidia GLX module from the xorg.conf (seems to fixed the xorg crashing but it now loads a different GLX module, I assume this is the default GLX module which is the fallback if my configuration does not load one. perhaps you know why this is loaded, even though the /root/xorg.conf does not load the glx module.

NB I followed the gentoo nvidia installation guide (http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/nvidia-guide.xml)

including the
eselect opengl set nvidia


Thanks in advance

Until you can start X with the nvidia glx module successfully loaded, you do not have the NVIDIA X driver installed correctly.

Thanks again for sticking with me.

Attached is the lastest debug log for you.

You can see I have uncommented the GLX module, which then references the nvidia GLX module. ((II) LoadModule: "nvidia"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.so
(II) Module nvidia: vendor="NVIDIA Corporation"
compiled for 4.0.2, module version = 1.0.9631
Module class: X.Org Video Driver)


BUT This causes...

(II) Initializing extension GLX

Backtrace:
0: X(xf86SigHandler+0x88) [0x80c6cd8]

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11. Server aborting


Some other interesting debug lines

(II) Loading extension NV-GLX
(II) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA 3D Acceleration Architecture Initialized
(II) NVIDIA(0): Visuals set up
(II) NVIDIA(0): Pixmap depths set up
(II) NVIDIA(0): GLX visuals set up
(II) NVIDIA(0): Framebuffer set up
(II) NVIDIA(0): Using the NVIDIA 2D acceleration architecture
(==) NVIDIA(0): Backing store disabled
(==) NVIDIA(0): Silken mouse enabled
(II) NVIDIA(0): Default colormap initialized.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Palette loaded

For installation I've have been using the gentoo command
emerge nvidia-drivers

can you help
Thanks for help in advance

This looks like a known Gentoo bug in their packaging of the NVIDIA driver. Does this problem persist if you install the official NVIDIA driver package?

Default Re: Gentoo, nvidia-drivers 9631 - X fatal server error

OK so i attempted what you suggested but the nvidia install seems to have left my system in a worse state to be honest but it still has the same problems

Here is what I did
removed the current gentoo packaged drivers with

emerge --unmerge nvidia-drivers

then

rmmod nvidia

rebooted

tried the latest nvidia packaged drivers (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9746-pkg1.run )

but these would not install giving the error

NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 4000 GPU installed in this system is
supported through the NVIDIA 1.0-96xx legacy Linux graphics
drivers. Please visit http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html for
more information. The 1.0-9746 NVIDIA Linux graphics driver will
ignore this GPU.


Although your web site does not list my graphics card in the legacy list...

anyway I tried the legacy driver packag from your web site (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7184-pkg1.run)

This installed and I was able to

modprobe nvidia

but
I was not able to run eselect opengl set nvidia

Anyway when I uncommented the GLX module load line the same error occured.

You mentioned a known issue with the gentoo drivers... is it possible you could provide more details of this so I can manually check the files I have on my system


anyway new log attached

You need to use the latest 1.0-96xx legacy driver, which is currently 1.0-9631.

Thanks,

can you let me know when I can download these from
the nvidia web site (http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html) only shows 7184 as the latest legacy drivers

Thanks in advance

Default Re: Gentoo, nvidia-drivers 9631 - X fatal server error

sorry found the drivers under the archive page.


Installed using the nvidia installer.

new bug log attached

but exactly the same problem.

nb when the xorg crash happens with these drivers instead of exiting to a command line the video just show a black screen with a flashing cursor at the top. I doubt that will help but it might.


any more ideas?

If you comment out the glx module in xorg.conf, does X no longer crash?

According to the bug report, you're getting the 'classic' TLS OpenGL libraries:
-> Installing classic TLS OpenGL libraries.

If you reinstall the driver to request the new libraries instead, does that help?

Thanks,
Lonni

Hi, I've been hunting down the same error with a nVidia 6600GT on Gentoo. There are a few threads on the Gentoo forums about the problem. I've tried two different driver versions with no success.

I'd be interested to see this bug report for the packaging.

EDIT: I tried the nVidia binary package. It does exactly the same thing, except that I get most of the screen covered in blue bars instead of all black.

@netlama

"If you comment out the glx module in xorg.conf, does X no longer crash?"

- This is correct X starts up fine.


"According to the bug report, you're getting the 'classic' TLS OpenGL libraries:
-> Installing classic TLS OpenGL libraries."

- Interesting.. but how do I request new libraries (can you give me some steps to do this for you)?

OK I think I have found the correct switch on the installer

So I performed
sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9631-pkg1.run --force-tls=new
reboot
startx -- -logverbose 5

But this has the same problem

now the install log in the debug says
"Installing both new and classic TLS OpenGL libraries"

Does this help you anymore?

New debug attached
