Default Epox 8rda3+ and Nvidia problem

Hello,

I am kinda new here, just installed gentoo for the first time a week ago, got everything working for now on, except for the nvidia driver.
When I start X I get a black screen and pc just hangs, I have an xp2000+ with an epox8rda3+ nforce2 based mobo, pc2100 ram and a hd etc like everyone.

I allready tried a thousand things, different kernel versions, etc, different options.
I will post my config here, maybe someone can help me finally.

I searched lots of forums and it seems I should patch the kernel with a *.diff file to get agpgart support for my nforce2 mobo, I tried that no luck

when I disable the driver, everythings works fine.

Now currently running the ac-sources 2.4.21-r6 ac1 and they have agpgart included, but it still does not work, but when I do a dmesg the agp bridge is detected!

It seems it detects the nVidia card just fine!

My Xfree config file looks like this, when I try to start it and it goes blank.

# This loads the GLX module
Load "glx"
# This loads the DRI module
# Load "dri"

# Chipset "generic"

# The Driver line must be present. When using run-time loadable driver
# modules, this line instructs the server to load the specified driver
# module. Even when not using loadable driver modules, this line
# indicates which driver should interpret the information in this section.

Driver "vga"
# The BusID line is used to specify which of possibly multiple devices
# this section is intended for. When this line isn't present, a device
# section can only match up with the primary video device. For PCI
# devices a line like the following could be used. This line should not
# normally be included unless there is more than one video device
# intalled.

BusID "PCI:0:9:0"

# VideoRam 256

# Clocks 25.2 28.3

EndSection

# Device configured by xf86config:

Section "Device"
Identifier "NVIDIA GeForce"
#Driver "nv"
Driver "nvidia"
#VideoRam 65536
# Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate
Option "NvAGP" "2"
EndSection

I also tried option 0 1 with the NvAGP setting, no succes.

I have disabled dri in the kernel, agpgart is compiled as normal, not as a module.

I also tried patched kernel 2.4.20 gentoo-sources, patched with the agpgart patch, no luck either :/

I upgraded my bios to latest version, etc etc etc and I am really desperate now, can someone please help me?

A big thanks for trying to solve my problem

Umm... then your NvAGP settings had no effect (well, 0 might have, I'm not sure). You NEED agpgart support to either not be compiled at all, or compiled as a module, in order for "NvAGP" "1" to actually do anything.

However, I think that that may not even help... with the previous Epox nForce2 boards (the 8RDA+ ones), the BIOS update is what caused the problem in the first place. Epox supposedly knew about it and they were going to release a fixed BIOS at some point, but I don't know if they ever did or not. But you've tried a BIOS upgrade already, so that's probably irrelevant anyway.

Hmm.... I can't think of anything else that it might be...

I will try this tonight bwkaz, am at work now, however, I think I allready tried something like that :/

On your question about the previous nforce 2 board from epox, a bios upgrade did solve the problem there, but for the new board it does not seem to work ...

Hopefully I did something wrong.

Bartosz, are you claiming that if I don't have an onboard graphics adaptor, I don't need the agpgart to be included in the kernel?

You think the nvidia drivers will work without agpgart?

sorry i didn't notice that you have geforce in apg port, i thought that you installed the driver becouse of nforce2 chipset and that u have in agp slot some other griphic card which is not supportet by the driver

i found this in your dmseg:
"PCI: No IRQ known for interrupt pin A of device 00:02.0. Please try using pci=bi
osirq." i don't now what that mean but it look strange for me.

have u been trying to unplug some devices or maybe switch something in bios on/off? u can always change your distro it sometimes hepls.

Hey, bahamot! Good to know that they did actually fix it, thanks.

Bartosz -- unfortunately, I get that message too. It doesn't seem to be affecting anything (I get it for my KT333 IDE controllers, though -- and I'm not positive what device is involved here, looks like the USB controller -- hey, maybe if you turn on "assing IRQ to USB" in the BIOS?). However, there still is a chance that looking at this message might help, so don't discount it.

infernator -- Hope it works for you today. Keep us posted. Something else that someone else has posted, too: you might attempt adding an Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "DFP, TV" line to your Device section (this is assuming that you have a monitor connected on the 15-pin VGA port, of course -- set the option to "CRT, TV" if you are using the DVI port). It might be that the display is initializing on the wrong head, or it's just taking forever.

I tried a bit further, added the ingnoredisplay devices like u said, no luck.

added pci=irqbios to kernel boot-up no luck either, but it did solve the problem bartosz was talking about.

I will try tonight with another card or so, still have an older geforce 2 lying around, maybe that helps or so, although I doubt it.

I managed to solve my problem, I mailed epox and they delivered me the latest beta bios version. I installed it, in xfree config put Option "NvAGP" "4" (drivers chooses his own interface) in the Nvidia options and disabled dri and agpgart in the kernel and compiled again.

I emerge nvidia again and bingo the thing is working

Getting 3111 fps in glxgears now

What can I say, I am happy

A BIOS update fixed the same problems for me with the epox8rda+ board.

I have wasted some complete days to find that out (i have checked everything and that **** windows update tool didnt updated my BIOS to the current one).

Also check if your BIOS is really updated to the newest date if you have the same problem (take the time and write it down somewhere).

Ok now i have my 8700 FPS in glxgears.

Umm... Windows Update (as in http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com) won't upgrade your BIOS. It's a software-only thing -- it only updates your Windows installation.

Unless you're talking about something else? I know MSI has an online BIOS update for their video cards (and I'd expect there's one for their motherboards as well, but I don't know), does Epox have something similar?

Epox made a crap windows tool named "magic flash".
Just dont use it and do a manual update.

And i noticed something interesting:
if the glxgears is in front i get about 7000 FPS
if the window is in the backround i get up to 18000 FPS (15k-18k).
