latest NVIDIA 64bit driver Slackware64-current
I installed the latest x86_64 NVIDIA drivers (185.18.31) on my Sony Vaio SZ320CP. (GeForce Go 7400). I'm running Slackware64-current updated around 3rd August using slackpkg. I'm running Xorg 1.6.3.
The kernel module loads without any errors that I can find.
I modified an xorg.conf to switch from nv to nvidia drivers.
When I startx the screen blanks and from appearances the keyboard is not responding. I have to power off.
When switch back to nv or the intel graphics chip it works.
Anybody got a similar configuration working? I'm a bit stumped at the moment and looking for something to try. I'm still playing with options in xorg.conf.
185.18.29 runs fine on my laptop with Go7300 chipset.
as does 185.18.31 on a 6800 GT
Both running Slackware64-current.
You are not the only one to run into issues though. http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show....php?p=2063891
You may want to try this :
run xorgsetup to generate xorg.conf based on the nv driver, keyboard layout etc.
Then modify xorg.conf to use Driver 'nvidia' under multiple sections of 'Device'.
Or reinstall the nvidia driver, it will prompt to modify xorg.conf automatically.
Also check if your kernel has enable msi-x, it should show in the config file at /boot.
If you do get into X successfully, use the nvidia utility to set the proper resolution & save to xorg.conf
Here's my xorg.conf
Also, a common problem with regards to the nvidia driver is that people forget an xorg-server or mesa update will render the nvidia binary driver (almost) unusable.
So, just make sure you haven't upgraded or reinstalled both xorg-server and mesa after installing nvidia's binary driver.
thx MRGOBLIN.... I reverted back to 185.18.14 and it worked..... cheers.
