why nvidia driver didn't load after i succesfully installed in my slack13.1?
I have a problem (again) with my (another) PC.
This is about vga driver. I'm using an old agp card RIVA TNT2 M64 for my old PC that running slack13.1 32bit.
i downloaded the driver from nvidia.com (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-71.86.14-pkg1.run)
The installation going well nothing errors comes out.
But after i want to tes glxgears. it didn't run. And my xorg back to vesa again (but i configure to use nvidia driver). but why back to vesa again?after i install the driver, i change the file name xorg.conf-vesa to xorg.conf, but after reboot. it's change itself to xorg.conf-vesa again. The conclusion is : the driver didn't work in my box. isn't?
How to make the driver work in my old PC?
with my post i attach my xorg.0.log and xorg.conf-vesa
Line 535 in the Xorg log shows:
(EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (NVIDIA X driver not found)
It did however find the device:
(--) NV: Found NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 Model 64 at 01@00:00:0
It looks like the driver isn't installed properly, or maybe a conflict with other modules.
Might want to try a minimal xorg.conf with only:
Identifier "NV AGP"
The 71.x driver series doesn't work with the xorg-server versions delivered in 13.1 and 13.0. Either use Slackware 12.2, if you need the proprietary driver, downgrade to an older release of X, or use a free driver.
btw, what about driver nvidia from slackbuild?
is that match with my old graphic card?
sorry for the late reply.
You might want to look into the nouveau driver. 3d is limited, but....
