nVidia udev nodes in gentoo
Udev is not creating the proper device nodes for my nVidia card in Gentoo. On top of this, when I manually create the nodes with "mknod" (the /sbin/NVdevices script is not on my system), it is to no avail (I've seen other threads where this is the solution). With the manually created nodes, sometimes I'll get the nVidia splash followed by a total meltdown --> hard reset. Other times my screen will just go blank --> hard reset.
kernel: 2.6.15-gentoo-r1 (with MTTR support & module loading)
lsmod | grep nv:
nvidia 4084304 0
agpgart 28872 2 via_agp,nvidia
lspci | grep NV:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5200] (rev a1)
I am by no means a linux expert. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Look at /etc/conf.d/rc
Hey, thanks for responding.
I had that snippet in my /etc/conf.d/rc, with the exception of RC_DEVICES being set to "udev." I'll try this out, thanks for the tip. If it doesn't work, I may just use the nvidia driver, too.
Also which version of udev do you have
I have 070 0n this box
