Default Re: Driver Installation - Fedore Core 6

I don't know what a freshrpm.net solution is, however if you're seeing similar problems in Windows, then it seems unlikely that this is an nvidia Linux driver bug. Its quite possible that Dell never intended for this system to use PCI-E graphics cards.

Default Re: Driver Installation - Fedore Core 6

Freshrpm.net is the solution mooninite gave earlier in the thread.
I think it is a bug with the newest nvidia drivers. Dell tells me that it is a driver problem if the main controller video output is automatically unactivate as the Quadro is detected by the motherboard. There are only PCI-X 64 free slots else and it is the only video card I found to plug in this machine.

Under Win, I had to downgrade the nvidia drivers in order to have the card running. I suppose , I should do the same under Linux but I can't compile the oldest driver version : 8756.
What can I do next ?
I really need to have this pc running OpenGL apps under Linux.

I use RPMs for two different machines.

You do not need the nVidia binary installer. The freshrpms.net RPM will work just fine. Make sure you uninstall the nVidia installer before trying the RPM.

You would have known if it is a driver problem sooner if you just followed my instructions.

Hello,

The rpm installation did not solve the problem and causes exactly the same crash. I've tried many manipulations with no success.
I'm trying to contact the video card vendor (PNY) to see if they have sucessfully ran the card with linux....

If anyone has another idea that could help me, he will be welcomed

Code:
(II) NVIDIA(GPU-1): Detected PCI Express Link width: 1X
That should read 16X... (its in a 16x slot right?)

This information is right : The motherboard does not have a PCI-X16 solt (as many newest server motherboards). I had to plug the video card in the only PCI-X 1 available slot.
This is the reason why I choosed the Quadro NVS-440. I would have chosen a Quadro FX 3500 if I had been able to plug it physically into the PC.

Question Re: Driver Installation - Fedore Core 6

I think I found it :

Code:
____________________________________________

/proc/driver/nvidia/cards/0
Model: 		 Quadro NVS 440
IRQ:   		 21
Video BIOS: 	 ??.??.??.??.??
Card Type: 	 PCI-E
DMA Size: 	 32 bits
DMA Mask: 	 0xffffffff

____________________________________________

/proc/driver/nvidia/cards/1
Model: 		 Quadro NVS 440
IRQ:   		 22
Video BIOS: 	 ??.??.??.??.??
Card Type: 	 PCI-E
DMA Size: 	 32 bits
DMA Mask: 	 0xffffffff

____________________________________________
Its seems that the nvidia driver detects two PCI-E cards. This is perharps due to the fact that I had to remove the NVS once and plugged it again.
I think it could be a part of my problem, no?
Does anyone know how to remove these cards and to setup a new one ??

No. The NVS440 has two GPUs, which are enumerated as you noted above.

I don't understand your question asking how to remove cards. Are you stating that the driver is detecting GPUs which are not physically present in the system?

Default Re: Driver Installation - Fedore Core 6

That's what I'm trying to determine.
I only have one card plugged in a PCI-X 1 slot. I saw in a previous thread an nvidia-bug-report giving only one GPU with the same card (Quadro NVS 440)....
The fact that the bios version of the GPU is not present is perharps a way to the solution too !

I've tried new test : nvidia-xconfig --query-gpu-info with (the default driver) => It makes the screen flash with all colors on screen and never gives back the hand...

Default Re: Driver Installation - Fedore Core 6

I've noticed that in the nvidia-bug-report.log, it was stopping on a line saying it was searching for a screen plugged on the second GPU. I've made some tests this afternoon => here is the latest log I have...

Default Re: Driver Installation - Fedore Core 6

OK. Sorry. I'll explain you the problem once again. It's the same from the beginning of the thread.

I have a Dell PE 840 that I can not plug in a PCI-E x16 video card because the motherboard does not have a PCI-E x16 slot. I want to "upgrade" the video card in this new PC. The only way I found is to buy a Quadro-NVS 440 that I can plug in the only available slot.
The PC is dual-boot and I've successfully installed the video driver in windows 2000. I am trying to setup Fedora Core 6 and to install the nvidia driver which is required by Open GL apps.
I've successufully installed the driver with the latest kernel src I've recompiled on the PC but when I switch to nvidia driver in the xorg.conf file and restart X , the screen switches off and never switch on again (the light becomes red). I have to reboot the PC to reinit the Fedora and get back to generic nv driver in order to have back a picture on screen.

I just want to see something on screen using the nvidia driver
