Default nVidia GeForce MX 4000 AGP card

Hi,

I've followed the advise on the FAQ NR 14
to install my nVidia GeForce MX 4000 AGP card,
to get GLX support for Blender
(I get this message when I try to run Blender: Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0")

(http://www.blender.org/education-help/faq/linux/#c2001 points me to the distro)

but when I change the xorg.conf Driver "nv" to "nvidia",

I get no GUI at all.


Currently I've got xserver-xorg-video-nv installed
(I think that's the driver my card uses now)
and
nvidia-kernel-legacy-96xx-2.6.21-1-multimedia-486
and nvidia-glx-legacy-96xx removed again.


I added the Xorg.0.log file from /var/log/
but looking at it makes me think it didn't even try to load the nvidia driver
and the Xorg.0.log.old was just the same

I don't know where to go now .

Any directions welcome ..

cheers
Peter

Default nVidia GeForce MX 4000 AGP card

Maybe it's important to add this piece of the log file
PCI:*(1:0:0) nVidia Corporation NV18 [GeForce4 MX 4000 AGP 8x]
(or from peter@64studio:~$ lspci -tv)

Maybe I should try the nvidia-glx-legacy-71xx
instead of nvidia-glx-legacy-96xx ?
Tomorrow , I'll give it a go.

I also found out about ENVY on this HOWTO . It's a script to automatically configure nvidia drivers . But now it's time to turn down the machine for me, I'll check it out myself tomorrow.

Take care.

Aha, I see something wrong here:

peter@64studio:~$ uname -a
Linux 64studio 2.6.17-2-multimedia-486 #1 PREEMPT Tue Jun 27 10:40:20 UTC 2006 i 686 GNU/Linux



and I was trying to use the nvidia-kernel-legacy-96xx-2.6.21-1-multimedia-486

so probably that's why the nvidia-kernel module is not found, and I have to upgrade the Linux kernel.



In Synaptic I find the linux-image-2.6.21-1-multimedia-486 package which is what I need, I hope so and will try it now ... Ok installed fine

Now change the /etc/X11/xorg.conf's Driver to "nvidia" again, killall gdm, gdm


and I should see the nvidia driver loaded ... mm, not working, I still have the same result from uname -a.

You should have the nvidia driver loaded:
lsmod |grep nvidia

IF that previous command returns nothing, what happens when you type:
modprobe nvidia

If you get an error like "FATAL: Module nvidia not found", then you
probably need to build and install the module. You should probably have
the packages "build-essential" and "kernel-package" installed.

If you do not get an error modprobing, the last few lines of dmesg might
be useful.

Default nVidia GeForce MX 4000 AGP card

Hi Gustin, thanks for the reply,

I followed your advice, (with xorg.conf's driver still set to nv), and as root I typed:

lsmod |grep nvidia

and got:

nvidia************** 4714292* 0
i2c_core************** 22400* 2 nvidia,i2c_i801

agpgart*************** 33364* 2 nvidia,intel_agp

modprobe nvidia
didn't return anything

so here are the last three lines of dmesg:

nvidia: module license 'NVIDIA' taints kernel.
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:01:00.0[A] -> GSI 16 (level, low) -> IRQ 19

NVRM: loading NVIDIA Linux x86 Kernel Module* 1.0-9631* Thu Nov* 9 17:38:10 PST 2006

So I think the driver has been loaded,
It may not matter to say* that I upgraded from a 64 studio 1.0 cd installation, but

I'm not really sure if the update/upgrade is completely done already, because I see there are newer kernel versions available etc.

Default nVidia GeForce MX 4000 AGP card

aha, I installed the linux-headers-2.6.21-1-multimedia package with Synaptic Package Manager,
then with synaptic still open , in the root modprobe nvidiaterminal I typed:
killall gdm

then everything got stuck so I got risky and pressed the reset button on the PC.


While booting , I saw a short splash screen with the nvidia logo,
from the first look on the screen I could see there was another driver working because it's a little bit darker.
and now Blender works. And how, really nice and smooth :-)

It looks like all the windows open up and close down faster now.

Problem solved :-)

Greetings !

then with synaptic still open , in the root modprobe nvidiaterminal I typed:

killall gdmmust be

then with synaptic still open , in the root terminal I typed:
killall gdm
I'm sorry , I wasn't aware my focus was still in Gmail while testing modprobe nvidia in the terminal again.

FYI, next time you accidentally kill X, press:
Ctrl + Alt + F1
at the same time to get a command line console. Then you can issue:
/etc/init.d/gdm restart

Not a big deal, but it is safer than resetting your machine.

That usually indicates that the propietary driver has been loaded.

Once logged in, run the following command from a terminal (the only one
I use is konsole, but I can't remember what 64studio installs by default):
glxinfo

Sounds like it

Thanks Gustin for the tips.

Just to be sure if I understand the problem that's solved now, I'll resume what I think was going wrong and the solution for it:

From the 64studio users faq nr 14, I learned that I need the


nvidia-kernel-legacy-96xx-2.6.21-1-multimedia-486 and nvidia-glx-legacy-96xx

packages installed for my card, but for the system to find the 2.6.21-1 version of the nvidia driver,
I also needed to install the


linux-headers-2.6.21-1-multimedia , linux-headers-2.6.21-1-multimedia , linux-image-2.6.21-1-multimedia-486

packages.

(Currently I still have these older packages installed also, but I don't think I still need them:

alsa-modules-2.6.17-2-multimedia-486, linux-headers-2.6.17-2-multimedia, linux-headers-2.6.17-2-multimedia-486 (I guess I never needed this one anyway), linux-image-2.6.17-2-multimedia-486)

If my conclusion is right, the link in the linux headers version 2.6.17 file to the nvidia driver points to the 2.6.17 version of that driver and not the 2.6.21 version that I had installed. So I had two options: I could try to force synaptic to use the nvidia-kernel-legacy-96xx-2.6.17-2-multimedia-486

package version or I could upgrade the whole linux kernel to version 2.6.21

Now when I type "uname -r" at the terminal, I get "2.6.21-1-multimedia-486" returned, so my system is completely more up-to-date, thanks to the problem solving with the nvidia :-) cool system , very nice experience :-)
