Default crazy colors! 100.14.09 with 8600m on macbook pro

Hi everyone!

The new 100.14.09 drivers work well for me, Xorg loads up... but when X loads, all of the colors are completly shifted and distorted.

I'm able to navigate around, but reading any text is impossible since the colors are so shifted.

Attached is my nvidia bug log.

I have a few questions:
0) Are you able to capture this problem in a screenshot?
1) If you remove 'quiet splash' from your GRUB configuration (and reboot), does that have any impact?
2) Does the problem persist if you disable the Composite extension in xorg.conf ?
3) Is this problem present with the 'nv' X driver as well?

Thanks,
Lonni

0: i'm not sure, since now X seems to be crashing randomly while it's doing this
1: no change
2: I believe it's disabled by default? I wrote my xorg.conf myself and didn't explicitly enabled it.
3: the 'nv' driver doesn't seem to load up for me:

Wow, that sure is crazy!

I'm afraid I don't have any suggestions right now for the nvidia driver, but as for the nv driver, I added LVDS support for GeForce 8 series chips just three days ago so I'm not surprised that it didn't work for you. If you have an external digital flat panel, you could try it with that. Otherwise you could give the current git version a try.

That warning is a little disconcerting, but is hopefully harmless.

nothing yet-
I'm planning on waiting for gutsy gibbon to firm up a bit more, then i was going to switch over to that to see if my problems cleared up.

FWIW, that is the same effect that I have been seeing in the Legacy 96xx drivers on my secondary twinview display since upgrading my FC6 kernel (via yum) to 2.6.20. Have had to revert to a patched 8776 driver to resolve (though alas no beryl under these drivers). Though the monitor displays these weird colors, taking a screenshot gives an accurate picture of what's supposed to be displayed.

I'm having similar problems with 100.14.09 on a 17" MacBook Pro with the hi-res option (1920x1200 display). The display shows a rainbow pattern at the GDM prompt (different than the one the original poster is seeing, though, mine's less symmetric) and the problems continue once I'm logged in. I get a similar effect when using a Dell 2405FPW plugged into the external DVI port.

I'm using Debian unstable for x86-64 and the 2.6.21 Debian kernel. I haven't tried the mactel patches yet, but I doubt they'll make any difference.

I've attached the output of nvidia-bug-report.sh. I've tried disabling all of the Device section options for the "nvidia" driver to no avail. I also tried explicitly disabling the Composite extension; same result.

Aaron, I built the nv driver from the git repository and tried that, too. With XAA enabled, if I use a hardware cursor, the cursor is drawn properly but the GDM prompt is corrupt. If I use a software cursor, the cursor is corrupt as well. With EXA enabled, the cursor is not visible (whether hardware or software), but the GDM prompt is rendered correctly until I begin typing my username and password; those glyphs are corrupt.

Once I'm logged in and my GNOME desktop is displayed, I get similar results whether I'm using XAA or EXA. The background and GNOME panel are rendered properly, including the menu header text on the panel, except for a slight "tearing" on the bottom of the GNOME panel. However, once the desktop icons are rendered, the rendering begins to decay: neither icons nor menus display properly. (The effect is hard to describe, but icons look like they're interlaced with each scan line shifted left or right by a few hundred pixels or so.) Interestingly enough, if I drag-highlight on the root window and then release the mouse button, the root window redraws (mostly) correctly.

I also tried the git nv driver with the Dell 2405FPW and got an exact mirror of the built-in display problems on the Dell.

I've attached the Xorg.0.log files for each of the "nv" configs I tried.

Hope this helps. I'd really like to get at least the "nv" driver working ASAP.

thanks!

I'm happy (but surprised) to report that both the proprietary 100.14.09 "nvidia" driver and the free latest-git "nv" driver are now working on my 17" MacBook Pro.

The only difference between now and when I last reported is that I upgraded from 2GB to 4GB yesterday, which I didn't expect to make any difference re: working video, obviously. In fact, I hadn't even bothered to boot into GNU/Linux since performing the upgrade. But after reading this thread:

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=93293

where the original poster is having problems with a 4GB machine, I wanted to see if I could reproduce his problems.

To my surprise, the X server started up just fine on the built-in display. I was using the git version of the "nv" driver, so I switched to "nvidia", restarted X and everything continued to work. Since then, I've cold-started the machine and the X server came up perfectly using the "nvidia" driver. I haven't tried yet with my external LCD display hooked up, but I will a bit later.

Here's my bug report log with the "nvidia" config, and the Xorg.0.log from the "nv" config. Hopefully these'll help you figure out what's going on with the 2GB machines.
