Nvidia driver disappearing on Fedora 4


Hi

I installed the nVIDIA driver for my Geforce 5200 card. After I rebooted my drivers disappeared. I know it's because of udev, but how do I fix this? I surely don't want to install the drivers each time I boot... :|

How did you install the drivers? I just grabbed the RPMs from livna (which also include the nvidia-glx drivers), and I've had no problems.

I downloaded the nvidia installer from nvidia.com. I'll try installing the livna rpm's and post a reply if I get into problems.

No luck. When I try to install the nvidia kernel module, I get a dependency error saying I need to get the nvidia glx. When I try to get nvidia glx, it says I need nvidia kernel.

I'm stuck in dependencies!!!

Strange. Are you using "yum?" If so, try "smart" or "apt-get." They (especially smart) are a little better are resolving dependencies.

Oh, you could also tell yum or rpm to ignore the dependicies to install the first one and then see if the second would install.

ok, fixed. Now I got a new problem. When use the drivers, they are really slow at 3D and they work very much like the OSS ones. How do I fix this?

Sorry, I've no idea.

Oh, here's one: Check /proc/mtrr to make sure you've got DMA turned on. My mtrr looks like this:
Code:
$ cat /proc/mtrr
reg00: base=0x00000000 (   0MB), size=1024MB: write-back, count=1
reg01: base=0xe0000000 (3584MB), size=  64MB: write-combining, count=1
(I ran "xine-check," and setting the mtrr was one of its suggestions. As you can see, I have a really old nVidia card (64 Mb), and don't do anything needing much 3-d acceleration. Just an occasional DVD on Xine.)
