XFree86 4.4.0, Xv, Nvidia help


This is my first post, so be nice

I have recently compiled/installed XFree86 4.4.0 on a 1.4GHz Athlon T-Bird + Nvidia GeForce3 Ti 200 running Slackware 9.1 (kernel 2.6.3) and everything runs wonderfully. However, as with 4.3.0, I cannot get XV to work. When I run xdpyinfo, i get the following:

number of extensions: 14
DOUBLE-BUFFER
GLX
LBX
MIT-SHM
NV-CONTROL
NV-GLX
RANDR
RENDER
SECURITY
XC-APPGROUP
XFree86-Bigfont
XInputExtension
XKEYBOARD
XTEST

As you can see, XVIDEO is not listed. Any ideas on how to enable this extension? I'm using the nvidia drivers.

did you compile video for linux into the kernel or as a module? I have 2.6.3 and XF86 4.4 working with ATI drivers on Slack 9.0...

Video for Linux? I did not know that was required in the kernel to use XVideo. If so, let me know and I shall compile into the kernel.

um... I think I may have goofed, apologies... I have not compiled v4l into my 2.6.3 and my rage128 driver supports it:

number of extensions: 28
BIG-REQUESTS
DOUBLE-BUFFER
DPMS
Extended-Visual-Information
FontCache
GLX
LBX
MIT-SCREEN-SAVER
MIT-SHM
MIT-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD
RANDR
RENDER
SECURITY
SGI-GLX
SHAPE
SYNC
TOG-CUP
X-Resource
XC-APPGROUP
XC-MISC
XFree86-Bigfont
XFree86-DRI
XFree86-Misc
XFree86-VidModeExtension
XInputExtension
XKEYBOARD
XTEST
XVideo

So, again I'm sorry for any false hopes, I should have checked my config before replying. I would imagine that if it's broken there will be either noise or patches coming out in the next days.

You need to edit your X11 config file XF86Config-4 most probably located in /etc/X11. And add
Load "xv" in the Section "Module". And make sure you have the xvideo module installed under the appropriate modules directory.
