Trouble with new nVidia driver installation...no nvidia logo and KDE no start up


Hello all,

I am working on updating our video drivers (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6111-pkg1.run) for our nVidia Quadro2 Pro vid card. Our distro is Red Hat 7.3. I have read thru the installation instructions and took the following steps:

1) exit X
2) run driver installation ( new module compiled )
3) edited XF86Config-4
From the module section:
- removed "load Glcore and load "dri"
- added "load glx"

From the device section
-replaced "Driver 'nv' " with "Driver 'nvidia''"
4) restart X

I don't get the nvidia logo
When logging in KDE freezes at the slash screen at Diisplay

Here is my XF86Config-4:

# File generated by anaconda.

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Anaconda Configured"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

Section "Files"

# The location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
# no need to change the default.

RgbPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"

# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.

FontPath "unix/:7100"

EndSection

# Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
# Option "Xleds" "1 2 3"

# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
# Option "XkbDisable"

# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"

# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"

The only problem I can see is the config file shows you haveing a "NVIDIA GeForce 2 GTS". You said you have a "Quadro2 Pro". The NVIDIA linux driver supports the Quadro2 Pro, its just interesting that Redhat detected the Geforce2. I think this is where your problems lies. Unfortunatly I have no suggestions.

Yea, I noticed that as well but was not sure if it was something I should edit or if it gets set automatically...

If you look at the bottom of the config file there is a section "DRI" which will be config options for dri module you removed. not sure whether this could be causing the problem but you should remove anyhow as redundant.

I don't think the incorrect naming will be a problem as this is just an identifier generated by xf86config (or whatever xfree setup tool you used)rather than a driver setting.

I had a similar but different problem with FreeBSD. I edited the XF86Config by hand and it worked. I found the name that was expected for my Geforce 2 Ultra and changed what the nv driver used to what the nvidia driver used and it worked fine. There should be a file included with the nvidia driver that lists the names of the supported cards.

Identifier "NVIDIA GeForce 2 GTS (generic)" is an arbitrary label for specifying your video device in the "screens" section" You could change this to anything you wanted.

However:

VendorName "NVIDIA GeForce 2 GTS (generic)"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce 2 GTS (generic)"

both of these lines are not neccesary. As suggested remove:

Section "DRI"
Mode 0666
EndSection

from the file.

Also, if you post the output from XFree86.0.log after trying to 'startx' it would help to diagnose your problem.

Thank you all so far for your help...I made the suggested changes to my XF86Config-4 file and still no nVidia logo and I cannot login with KDE.

newer than the above date, look for a newer version before
reporting problems. (See http://www.XFree86.Org/)

It appears the module is loaded okay...

Here is the error I get when I login with KDE:

There was an error setting up inter-process communication for KDE
The message returned by the system was:
Could not read network connection list.
/home/[username]/.DCOPserver_[hostname]__0

Please check that the dcopserver program is running

In another window before X restarts:

Could not start ksmserver


Of course my username and our hostname are in the brackets for the path above.

Also here is my .xsessions.errors file:

Warning: connect() failed: : No such file or directory
Could not register with DCOPServer. Aborting.
Warning: connect() failed: : No such file or directory
Error: Can't contact kdeinit!

Well I hope some can help figure out this mess....

Thanks,
mdb

Do you have another window manager installed that you could try, fluxbox maybe...if another WM starts up then we can assume it is a KDE problem.

GNOME works okay...I thought the problem was the driver because I do not ever see the nvidia logo that I've read should appear, and it was after updating the driver that KDE stopped working. If I switch back to the old XF86Config-4 file KDE works but crashes with signal 11 with nearly every program. There's got to be something with the new driver and KDE...I'm still lost.
