[X] after latest nVidia drivers: X crashes


Hi all,


After installing the latest nVidia drivers from nVidia itself (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8756-pkg1.run), my X crashes everytime I want to do something in GL (I guess).

For example I want to start EVE Online in Cedega... I get booted back to the login screen. Which afaik means X crashed...
When I try to do the "test" in Cedega, X crashes at the first test (= gl test). So that's why I am thinking something in my config is not right.

If I am not at my computer for a time - like most people - there pops up a screensaver... Which is mostly in GL I guess... So X crashes...


I would be very happy if someone could tell me what to do . Hereby included you will find the X-config.

Code:
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig:  version 1.0  (buildmeister@builder3)  Wed Mar 29 14:43:26 PST 2006

# /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the /etc/X11/xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man /etc/X11/xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.

# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated

#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

The 8xxx series drivers are still unstable, and causing problems for many people (including some functionality lost). Unless you have one of the newer cards that require it (and you apparently don't), you are better off running the 7676 driver, which is stable.

I had this same problem.
I'm running Gentoo with a eVGA 6600LT nVidia Chipset. Although the solution is not desirable, I found that the graphics seem to work by replacing:

Driver "nvidia"
with
Driver "vesa"

Again, not a permanent fix...but at least it gets the screen to work!

Hi,


The reason why I wanted this driver is because it supports the Geforce 7900 GTX.
Beforce I had the Geforce Ti4200, but I am too lazy to change the description .

But why does nVidia release unstable drivers on their website and not as 'beta' driver? Because I would think that those drivers are 'stable', and the ones in the beta-section are unstable... Seems I don't understand their logics .

I will try the vesa-thing.


Thanks!

Have you tried reinstalling the driver? You may have updated your xorg, necessitating this. This happened to me a while back. I had a display until I tried to run something using GLX. Then boom!

I have found this driver perfectly OK up to now (Nvidia FX5500).

Hi, have you checked your /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see errors/warnings. Can you post it here. It should tell you why it crashed.

Nvidia doesn't have a defined beta program for Linux. The new drivers in a series (7xxx, 8xxx, etc.), are always unstable. They are what most people would consider beta (sometimes alpha). They are usually introduced for the newest cards, while breaking many existing cards. You may be able to find more useful information at Nvidia's Linux forum.

Hi all,

The vesa-thing worked, but I reverted back because the quality of display was really bad (I could see the interlacing inside movies, which I couldn't when using nVidia's drivers).

Now about the crash. Here is the only difference between Xorg.0.log and Xorg.0.log.old:
Code:
   *** If unresolved symbols were reported above, they might not
   *** be the reason for the server aborting.

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11.  Server aborting


Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support 
	 at http://wiki.X.Org
 for help. 
Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information.
So that's not that much usefull information .

I also checked the other logs, but nowhere is some usefull information to be found why it crashes.

I will check the nVidia forums in the meanwhile.

The vesa driver doesn't do hardware acceleration.
You could try the nv driver, it is less generic as it is written for nvidia cards but you won't get much more joy out of it.

I still think you should try reinstalling the driver so that, when it compiles, it uses what is actually present on your machine at the moment.

Under Ubuntu 5.10 the nv driver didn't work... So I thought like 'what the heck', it's only a few days till 6.06 so I did an upgrade...
nVidia drivers are still not working (please check the message below), but nv are... So at least I can get some acceleration in movies. But still unable to play Eve.
I got some progress :-) So I am already little happy...

Needs a lot of hacking this stuff .

Fatal server error:
no screens found
I installed the NVIDIA 8762 driver (latest one by 23/05/2006, 23:32 GMT) following the ncurses installer. In the messages I can see the nvidia.ko module is correctly loaded into the kernel, also I can see via modinfo that it's the correct file + version which is loaded... So I don't know why X don't want to give me a screen...
Maybe I should be nice to it... Nah, don't like being nice. Where do I get an axe to crush X skull and wire some cells so it will do what I want?

Little violent mmm... Should stop see action movies

Strange. Is your X system up-to-date, with all the upgrades installed?

One approach you could try is to comment out load glx and GLCore in xorg.conf. If the driver works then you've narrowed the field significantly.

GLcore I don't have anymore in my xorg.conf (as posted somewhere else that it's in the README file that you should remove it). So now I uncommented it... Let me save this reply and let X crash...

Too bad ... I commented "glx" out, and changed "nv" by "nvidia"... Now it didn't gave an error anymore about not being able to load glx (check below), but still give the same errors about nvidia...

Fatal server error:

It says "(WW) Warning, couldn't open module nvidia", how is that possible? Doesn't it use the module loaded in the kernel?
With what comment can I check if it is really loaded, and not being dormant or so?

Thanks for your time mate!

Did you try re-installing your nvidia module and running xconfig? Maybe modprobe nvidia? Did you compile it yourself and is /usr/src/linux the source for this kernel ? Did you compile the kernel module of NVidia as well ?

What a lot of questions .

reinstalling: yes, already a few times.
xconfig: I don't have this, but if you mean nvidia-xconfig... Yes I did that everytime I reinstalled (even though the setup does that already).
compile yourself: no and yes. First few times I let the setup do the compiling, then I compiled myself and copied everything over manually. That didn't work out either so I removed every trace of 'nvidia' on my system and restarted by setting it up via the setup
kernelsource: this is in /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.15-23-k7/, there is also a reference to the source at /lib/modules/2.6.15-23-k7/build
kernel module: I guess what the official setup does is nothing more then recompiling the kernel module?

I guess I am a little confused here that there would be 2 modules for nvidia on my system?
I'm just trying to understand here ... I need a kernel module for my GeForce for I don't know what... Let's say hardware recognition. Do I still need an X module so X can use the features of my hardware to run?

Afaik I only recompiled the kernel module, I didn't do anything about X modules, the only thing I am doing there is changing the configuration file.

The Nvidia install a non-free driver, nothing to do with the kernel source. ie you have code in your system which is not open source.

This is done via the installer which also modprobes etc.

Are you running the installer as root? If not you will not have the necessary permissions.

Just to make sure:

1. X must not be running. Boot to runlevel 2. Stopping the GUI or going to a shell is not good enough. Edit your /etc/inittab to boot to runlevel 2.

2. Login, become root, cd to where the driver is and run it. Watch it like a hawk. If there are any errors it will tell you where the log file is.

From the log you posted it seems that the nvidia module cannot be found. Either it didn't compile properly or, as user, you do not have read permission on where the module is. Strange though.

Hope this helps.
