-   Fedora (
-   -   NVIDIA FEDORA 13 3D Fails (

R03L 10-26-2010 10:36 AM

I have worked on fedora 10 and the installation of that to nvidia was simple
just install kmod-nvidia and reboot
than fedora 11 came out same story.

now fedora did some nouvau expiriments on fedora 12 and 13.
the howto on fedora 12 did work perfectly at that time at fedora 12
no problem.
the howto does work fine on fedora 13 i installed and did run glxgears and nexuiz fine on one monitor
but on fedora 13 when i enable both monitors

glxgears and nexuiz (for testing) does not work anymore.
i did disable and enable nvidia-config-display and did so much more.

so on one monitor setting 3D is enabled.
but when i enable both monitors 3D does not run anymore.

$ glxgears
X Error of failed request:  BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:  137 (NV-GLX)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  4 ()
  Resource id in failed request:  0x7600002
  Serial number of failed request:  35
  Current serial number in output stream:  35

and the nexuiz 3D test

Your system currently is not capable of hardware accelerated 3D. Therefore nexuiz-sdl cannot run.

Usually the cause of this error is that there are no Free Software drivers for your graphics card, please contact your graphics card manufacturer and kindly ask them to provide Free Software support for your card.

my settings are following

#Nouveau for nvidia 3d
blacklist nouveau

so it should work or am i doing something wrong or is there something changed again in fedora 13 nouveau?

John VV 10-26-2010 02:21 PM

it looks like your xorg.conf has only one monitor and screen set up
set up the second monitor

R03L 10-27-2010 07:23 AM

i checked same layout again.
/etc/X11/xorg.conf but im realy looking at both monitors ans use them at same time Right Now.

this xorg.conf is autogenerated by nvidia-settings.
setted at twinview like you see in xorg.conf

falcom 10-27-2010 01:10 PM

i write a guide of nvidia drivers install on fedora 13 check this
it's simple and easy

John VV 10-27-2010 02:53 PM

yeap is the same !!

R03L 10-30-2010 10:05 AM

what are then the best settings for my xorg.conf

this is realy the one xorg.conf on both monitor settings?

i don't understand yes it does seems its setted to one monitor when i compare whit previous settings of fedora 12 and so on.

but it's realy working! only 3D does not.?

and i realy want to use software like google earth/celestia/compiz "aso"
and games like nexiuz but i failed!?

"i did not like fedora's new graphics drivers nouveau but im now realy gonna hate it"

R03L 10-30-2010 11:02 AM


Nvidia drivers are absolute

i did remove the configuration and nvidia drivers and rebooted.

i installed mesa driver expirimental via YUM and rebooted

both monitors as 3d is working fine now on the new nouveau driver

only thing i still need to do is switch both monitors becouse they are otherwise arround ><

so don't use nvidia's driver or rpmfusion's drivers on fedora 13 anymore
and only install

sudo yum install mesa-dri-drivers-experimental.x86_64
: Mesa-based DRI drivers (experimental)

reboot and your almost done!

compiz working
nexuiz working
glxgears working
glxinfo say's

name of display: :0.0
display: :0  screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.4
server glx extensions:
    GLX_ARB_multisample, GLX_EXT_import_context, GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap,

    GLX_OML_swap_method, GLX_SGI_make_current_read, GLX_SGIS_multisample,

client glx vendor string: Mesa Project and SGI

nouveau for non french person's should mean NEW


R03L 10-30-2010 11:13 AM

it's still a little slow compare to nvidia's driver

but it's working.

compiz-fusion behave's verry slow and i don't use emerald theme manager becouse of trouble like desktop in colour and other buggy stuff.

nexuiz "aso" are working fine though.

R03L 11-12-2010 09:54 AM

i did see a small bug under my OLD USER account,
that whit 2 monitors afther installing mesa-dri-drivers-experimental.x86_64
my both monitors where clones of the wrong side of the desktop.
so i added in kde 4 whit right mouse button, the panel start
and made the clone of the left side at my KDE you can also choose right side ofcourse.
so i have the PANEL start back like standart.

but the settings did not save default after rebooting the same story starts again and this stay's this way.
so i switched to ROOT user at login screen.

i become clone of the standart desktop side whit the PANEL
so i change my settings @ root user to LEFT side and have both monitors.

so i was thinking and i was wright.
i did not remove my old user account to spare my files that i still need.

and created an new user account.
and no settings needed beside to switch your both plugs of the monitor.
to be exact to understand what i meen.
you can software base change these settings. from rigt to left.

"if it saves as default i still neet do find out whit a small reboot or login screen"

R03L 11-12-2010 10:11 AM

and indead the default settings i saved are saved after reboot whit creating a new user.

linus72 11-12-2010 11:03 AM

try removing the "vga=" parameter from your grub.cfg
thta's the only way I could get the nVidia driver to work on mine

R03L 11-12-2010 12:21 PM


every time i notice afther expirimental driver nvidia graphics nouveau
i notice that my videocard is hanging lots of times

i cant do anything anymore and also webcams are hanging so my grapics are haging.
afther some update of kpackagekit i ended on 70% when this is happening so rebooted.
fixed a duplicate on yum afther that i did yum update again to fully update today.
im a user of firefox.
rebooted today to mutch..

i started whit starting firefox whit copy'd configuration.
this problem above did always be there.

but i started firefox to begin whit
and it was haging again reboot
and again reboot
and again.reboot

i notice that firefox is a little buggy combination whit expirimental driver.

so i am trying to reinstall firefox while removing full configuration and folders.
only thing is that i make a little backup of flashplayer for 64bit linux ko

sudo yum remove firefox.x86_64 beagle-firefox.x86_64 mozilla-adblockplus.noarch mozilla-noscript.noarch
