Default stereo doesn't work with NVIDIA Quadro NVS 285, FC6 and Linux drivers 9746

I am trying to get quad-buffered stereo to work on a FC6_x86_64 system using the latest Linux drivers with a Quadro NVS 285 board. I have followed the guidelines posted on this forum (except a full system update) but so far stereo does not work. I need to use Stereo option "1" because of the hardware. At this point, I don't know what else to try. I thought that quad-buffered stereo was supported on all Nvidia Quadro boards but maybe I am mistaken ?

I am using a Quadro4 380 XGL with FC4 on another machine and always worked OK from the start...

Any help is appreciated!

What does "stereo does not work" mean exactly? How can this problem be reproduced?

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

Thanks,
Lonni

"Stereo does not work" means I cannot visualize in stereo under exact same conditions which work on a different machine with a different Nvidia Quadro board (Quadro4 380 XGL with FC4 ).

Application pulsar ( http://viz.aset.psu.edu/ga5in/dist/pulsar.c ):
./pulsar -s produces the following:
freeglut (./pulsar): ERROR: Internal error <Visual with necessary capabilities not found> in function fgOpenWindow
X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
Major opcode of failed request: 4 (X_DestroyWindow)
Resource id in failed request: 0x0
Serial number of failed request: 13
Current serial number in output stream: 16


Application dino ( http://www.dino3d.org):
./dino -stereo produces the following:
Welcome to dino v0.8.5-snapshot (http://www.dino3d.org)

No stereo visual found, using mono
Graphics Subsystem ID: NVIDIA Corporation Quadro NVS 285/PCI/SSE2
OpenGL Version 2.1



I am attaching a zipped nvidia-bug-report.log (after running pulsar -s) as requested.

Thanks for any help on this matter,

Pedro.

In your bug report I see:
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Stereo is only available on Quadro cards
(II) NVIDIA(0): Disabling stereo.

Maybe, but I believe you´re missing the whole picture:

% cat > text
Quadro
stereo

% grep -F -f text nvidia-bug-report.log

BoardName "NVIDIA Quadro 4"

So, we bought this QUADRO card for stereo and now the drivers don't recognize it as such ? That's a major bug, don't you think ?

I'm afraid that NVS cards are not treated the same as other non-NVS Quadro cards. You'll need a non-NVS Quadro card if you wish to use Stereo (and other Quadro specific) functionality.

Thanks,
