Exclamation Nvidia 7100GS weirdness


trying to get my brand new MSI NX7100GS-TD128E to work under linux

so I took out my old 6600LE (dual head working)

I put the 7100 in, adjust the settings (BusId)
I get one monitor working not the other


I'm using Xorg 7.1.1, nvidia-drivers 1.0.8774 on gentoo
I upgrade to nvidia-drivers 1.0.9746
now I can even get one monitor working

when I startx I get

glitch xorg-x11 # startx
xauth: creating new authority file /root/.serverauth.6312

X Window System Version 7.1.1
Release Date: 12 May 2006
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 7.1.1
Build Operating System: Linux i686
Current Operating System: Linux glitch #3 Tue Sep 12 02:49:35 Local time zone must be set--see zic manu i686
Build Date: 11 September 2006

to make sure that you have the latest version.

XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0"
after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

I uploaded the log file again

I noticed something

(--) NVIDIA(0): Memory: 524288 kBytes

but this video card has 128mb ?!?!?
this is the manufacturer's page

on the box
you can see that it says it has 128mb on board , but "Up to 512mb" ?!?!
this is very weird, it's not like it has expansion slots !
maybe it's using system memory .. but then free says all the ram is accounted for

glitch ~ # free
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 904784 74588 830196 0 6436 44708
-/+ buffers/cache: 23444 881340

has anyone else gotten that card to work under linux ?
thanks !

I suspect the problem was introduced with the update from 1.0-8776 to 1.0-9746, rather than with the graphics card upgrade. More specifically, I suspect the wrong libnvidia-tls.so library was installed (or is being picked up); how did you install the driver, using the .run installer or `emerge`? The amount of memory available to the GPU as reported by the X driver includes system memory on TurboCache GPUs.

hi there,

i use the same graka.
its an MSI NX7100GS.
this card works fine, but Xorg cant find the right device??

if i do lspci, my system only find this:
05:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Unknown device 016a (rev a1)

if i read the device lost to configure it in the xorg.conf file,
i dont find anything to configure it.
there is no board type.

my system is gentoo and i uses the x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-1.0.9746

I'm afraid that I don't see any problems in your bug report. X is running. What is the problem you're experiencing and how can it be reproduced?
