Default Linux-x86-1.0-9746 oddity

Hello,

I am running debian on an ASUS motherboard with a integrated Nvidia GeForce2 MX graphics system. Currently, I am running xorg (7.1.0) with Nvidia 8776 driver. When I saw there was a new driver (9746). The compatibilty/supported list shows

GeForce2 Go 0x0112
GeForce2 Integrated GPU 0x01A0
GeForce2 MX 100/200 0x0111
GeForce2 MX/MX 400 0x0110

I downloaded it and tried installing the same. But, the installer complains that the chipset/card on my mobo is not supported by this particular version and I should try the legacy driver.

Am I missing something here? Can someone give some pointers.

Regards.

1.0-9631 is the latest driver from the 1.0-96xx legacy branch which supports your GPU.

Thanks,
Lonni

Thanks. I downloaded and tried installing that. Compiling : Did not face any problems. but, at the end it fails with the message

'libnvidia-tls.so.1.0.9631' (expected:

conflicting OpenGL libraries are installed in a location not inspected
by `nvidia-installer`. Please be sure you have uninstalled any
third-party OpenGL and/or third-party graphics driver packages.

on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
driver download page at www.nvidia.com.
I could still start X. But, it was a complete mess. The window movements are sluggish; screen does not get refreshed. Text display, etc. completely gone or messed up :-(

So, it is back to 8776 for me which works. But, I would like to know whether this problem has been reported and/or solved.

Am attaching the log file.

Saw that. As I am compiling and using the driver, obviously the dependencies/requirements are satisfied.

Was 1.0-8776 installed from the official NVIDIA driver package or a 3rd party package?

Official. This is the file: NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8776-pkg1.run. A patch was supplied on this forum itself (http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...=81532&page=2).

In your bug report, I see:
(WW) NVIDIA(0): The NVIDIA X driver has encountered too many errors. Falling
(WW) NVIDIA(0): back to legacy PCI mode.

Is X running ok, or are you still experiencing problems?

Sort of. X comes up, but as mentioned before screen is not refreshed correctly. Starts from the login window itself. Half the screen will be a single colour, the other half will be from gdm (which I use) theme. After logging in, if I move the windows, I can see the trails, which are not refreshed. Within a short time, all things become sort of invisible (because the screen is not refreshed), and I have to kill the xserver.

Regards,

If you set NvAGP to 0 in xorg.conf (and restart X), does that help?

Did not help. I am attaching a screen grab. I had to type blindly to get the image (thanks to imagemagick :-) )
