Sorry if my question is a newbie question. I am really a newbie .
The blacklisting of the driver takes effect at boot-time, it's got nothing to do with the recompiling process. You can add it to blacklist.conf before or after the compile, it doesn't really matter.

Working good here. No patching and no recompiling.

Card is a 9600GT.

nouveau module is blacklisted, kernel is 2.6.33 generic (not huge),
NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-195.36.08-pkg2

Booting to runlevel 3 with a regular text console (no framebuffer).

mkinitrd_command_generator.sh:
mkinitrd -c -k 2.6.33 -f ext4 -r /dev/sda11 -m crc16:jbd2:mbcache:ext4 -o /boot/initrd-2.6.33.gz


EDIT: 195.36.08 was pulled due to a possibly fatal overheating issue.
Better to use 190.53 with the patch linked below (post # 65)

If the blacklisting of the driver takes effect at boot-time, that means no need to recompile the kernel?

no, just using the vmlinuz-generic-26.33 kernel with initrd worked for me.

Nvidia have removed driver 195.36.08 from their FTP site recommending users to revert to 190.53 or 195.30 due to a possible fan speed issue. 190.53 or 195.30 works with kernel 2.6.33 if patched with:

I cannot install the patched Nvidia 190.53 with kernel-huge 2.6.33-2. It builds, but the module fails to install. It works if I downgrade to 2.6.33-1. Did you recompile kernel and modules?

Thanks for the warning, I just tested with glxgears and woaaa.

If you run 195.36.08 and use a 3D application your card will melt in short order, even a basic one like glxgears will raise the temps in a short time.

Just noticed following in the -current change log:
Quote:
Sun Mar 7 21:44:07 UTC 2010
a/kernel-huge-2.6.33-x86_64-2.txz: Rebuilt.
Adjusted the config to improve kernel module compatibility.
Am wondering: does above means that now it is going to be possible to install and run (patched) NVIDIA driver without kernel re-compilation?

Of course it will, but I'd have to fish for mirror that updated to previous kernel upgrade, and not updated for latest one - how hard is write more meaningful change log messages?

In any case, here is the diff for huge.s kernels:

Again - not particularly easy to tell, but as CONFIG_AGP_NVIDIA is set to "m" in the latest upgrade, I guess it should do...

No just the module. But used 195.36.08. Havent noticed any issues yet.
I will test it more extensively though.

Still have the same problem with the latest kernel. I couldn't build the nvidia driver on it. I had to revert back to my previous kernel. Will have to take a closer look later today to see what's wrong.

OK, I've tried with updating to latest upgrades too, but NVIDIA proprietary driver (patched) compilation fails. I think there may be an issue between the kernel that I've previously installed from source, and the kernel from -current that I've just installed. Is there anything specific to do, if kernel installed once from source (cp ... /usr/src/linux/.config && cd /usr/src/linux && make -j4 && make modules_install && cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz && lilo) to "redo" the operation?

OK, finally tried out this suggestion offered by Damgar over there: https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...77#post3887677 to no avail. Same problem.

To refresh about the problem:
I cannot seem to upgrade my xorg* packages to the level of -current for my Slack 64bit system. If I do, then my WM starts up in slow motion and dies if I don't kill it in a timely manner. If I don't kill it, the whole system eventually freezes up and I have to reboot using Magic SysRq.

-- I have tried with various kernels including 2.6.32.x and 2.6.33.
-- I've used both the patched 190.53 and UN-patched 190.53 (depending which kernel)
-- I do have nouveau blacklisted (though I don't think it makes any difference, does it?)
-- I also let the nvidia driver-installer modify my config file (though last time I diffed that vs my previous file, the only thing it does is change the "Driver" entry, no?)

Here's what I get near the end of the Xorg.0.log file after having run `startx` from the console (init 3) as my regular user:
Code:
(WW) Mar 08 15:49:21 NVIDIA(1): WAIT (2, 6, 0x8000, 0x00009ca0, 0x00009cb0)
(WW) Mar 08 15:49:21 NVIDIA(1): WAIT (0, 6, 0x0000, 0x00009cb0, 0x00009cb0)

(WW) Mar 08 15:49:28 NVIDIA(1): WAIT (0, 6, 0x0000, 0x00003498, 0x00003498)

(WW) Mar 08 15:49:31 NVIDIA(0): WAIT (0, 6, 0x8000, 0x0000ec74, 0x0000ec74)
(II) UnloadModule: "kbd"
(II) UnloadModule: "mouse"
I dunno what it really means, but I can deduce that NVIDIA(0) is the driver instance for my first card, and NVIDIA(1) is the instance for the second card. Beyond that, I haven't a clue.

So at this moment (as I type this post), I have fully upgraded to 64-current EXCEPT for I've rolled back the xorg* packages and their matching input driver packages, to 13.0 versions. I am right now running kernel:
Code:
sasha@reactor: uname -a
Linux reactor 2.6.33-2633-04 #4 SMP PREEMPT Sat Mar 6 18:12:30 UTC 2010 \
x86_64 Genuine Intel(R) CPU            2160  @ 1.80GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
and the 190.53 patched driver.

Am I the ONLY person who either IS HAVING or HAS HAD troubles with this driver/slackware-version, and who is using multiple displays and/or cards?

I think this warrants a bug report to nVidia.. Anyone think otherwise or have any other ideas to try?

Sasha
