NVIDIA TNT2 problems. I already scanned all the NVIDIA stuff I could find on here.
 
I recently installed Linux on my computer. Then my roommate decided Linux was cool and wanted it too. I seem to be running into problems setting up his machine. He's running a NVIDIA TNT2 based card. I've read up on the NVIDIA problems in the forums, but I'm still having trouble. The most similar thing I've seen is another user who had "NVIDIA Kernal failed to initialize". Please let me know if you can help or point me at a thread I missed.

I've done everything I can think of. I've reinstalled the driver, reinstalled in expert mode (to check where the files are being installed), and even offered the computer a beer.

Here's my XFree86 log after I install the driver and change my driver in the XF86Config from "nv" to "nvidia"

If I leave the driver at "nv" the "GLX" fails to initialize, and my roommate may die if he dosen't get to play tux racer soon. :p

I hate posting more NVIDIA problems, and hope you haven't answered this one already and I missed it.

Thanks

Please post first part of /etc/X11/XF86Config file. I'm interested in "Load *" lines (they're at the beginning). It looks some of them need to be removed.

I have RedHat 9 running on my computer with a TNT2 32MB card. Here's the load * part of my XF86Config file if that's any help.

Section "Module"
Load "dbe"
Load "extmod"
Load "fbdevhw"
Load "glx"
Load "record"
Load "freetype"
Load "type1"
Load "dri"
EndSection

Mara,
Is there anything I can get off my computer to help you out? I just selected the card during the GUI installation when it asked for my card. I specifically looked for the TNT2 driver, because I believe it initially wanted to use one of the other NVIDIA drivers.

hi

ur XF86config under /etc/X11 should look like this:

Section "Module"

Load "dbe"

SubSection "extmod"
Option "omit xfree86-dga" # don't initialise the DGA extension
EndSubSection

Load "fbdevhw"
Load "glx"
Load "record"
Load "freetype"
Load "type1"
#Load "dri" --->> comment this one

EndSection

Section "Device"

Identifier "** NVIDIA (generic) [nv]"
Driver "nvidia"
#VideoRam 131072
# Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate

EndSection

i got it working with no problems with this config
arch linux - kernel 2.6.4


hope it helps :)

So I forgot to send you an answer? Sorry... Below modified section (should work, imho).
Code:

Section "Module"
        Load  "dbe"
        Load  "extmod"
#        Load  "fbdevhw"
#        Load  "glx"
#        Load  "record"
        Load  "freetype"
        Load  "type1"
        Load  "dri"
EndSection

# comments out a line. Try this config.
