Unhappy Slack8.1 and nVidia 1.0-3123 drivers


Hello, I've been doing a few housekeeping type things to improve my slack install of late one of which is to install the nVidia drivers; which has turned into a problem.

I downloaded the

NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.tar.gz
NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-3123.tar.gz

files and shutdown X ... as root I

$ tar xvzf NVIDIA_kernel.tar.gz
$ tar xvzf NVIDIA_GLX.tar.gz

then I jump down to the newly placed "kernel" folder,

make install

everything seems fine and driver installed ok

then I jump down to the newly placed "GLX" folder,

make install

no mod dep problems, all seems good.

I go ahead, edit my XF86Config, modprobe NVdriver ... everthing looks ok

but startx gives me this

As you can see I'm using Gforce 2 mx400, Xfree86 4.2, bare.i kernel 2.4.18 ... the NVdriver is picked up ok it just falls over I did md5sum on both of the tar-balls, they both checksummed ! What could it be ? Is the resource range discrepancy an issue ?

Lightbulb All solved

When nVidia say you need to allocate an IRQ to VGA through BIOS for these drivers to work they really do mean it.

Did you ever get this fixed? I just upgraded two systems with the new NVidia drivers.

When I edited XF86Config, I had to un-remark load "glx" towards the beginning of the file and change driver "nv" to driver "nvidia" towards the end of the file.

All went well. Now when I startx I get an NVIDIA splash screen and then my fluxbox WM.

Add this line: Option "NoLogo"
to "Server flags section" in your /etc/X11/XFConfig
