Default nvidia GeForce 6200 questions

Hi,
I've been trying to get an nvidia controller working today and not
having much luck. It's complaining about failing to load kernel
module.

As a starting point I'm following this guide:

http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/nvidia-guide.xml

My nvidia device is (I think) a GeForce 6 family card:

dragonfly ~ # lspci | grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV44A [GeForce
6200] (rev a1)
dragonfly ~ #

and from this nVidia page seems to be supported by the 173.xx series drivers:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_display_ia32_173.14.25.html

Because modinfo nvidia suggested it depended on them I've added
agpgart and i2c-core to modules.autoload and after booting this is
what's loaded:

dragonfly ~ # lsmod

When I try to load the nvidia driver it just complains:

dragonfly ~ # modprobe nvidia
FATAL: Error inserting nvidia
(/lib/modules/2.6.33-gentoo/video/nvidia.ko): No such device
dragonfly ~ #

dragonfly ~ # modprobe --show-depends nvidia
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.33-gentoo/kernel/drivers/i2c/i2c-core.ko

insmod /lib/modules/2.6.33-gentoo/video/nvidia.ko

dragonfly ~ # modprobe -v nvidia
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.33-gentoo/video/nvidia.ko
NVreg_DeviceFileMode=432 NVreg_DeviceFileUID=0 NVreg_DeviceFileGID=27
NVreg_ModifyDeviceFiles=1
FATAL: Error inserting nvidia
(/lib/modules/2.6.33-gentoo/video/nvidia.ko): No such device
dragonfly ~ #

The driver exists:

dragonfly ~ # ls -al /lib/modules/2.6.33-gentoo/video/nvidia.ko
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 7859091 Mar 1 13:35
/lib/modules/2.6.33-gentoo/video/nvidia.ko
dragonfly ~ #

I'm not clear what it means by 'no such device'. Is that a message
that this driver doesn't support this card?

I tried going down to the 96 series drivers but got the same results.

Sort of obvious stuff in the kernel config I could think of before
sending this email is here:

dragonfly ~ # zcat /proc/config.gz | grep AGP
CONFIG_AGP=m
# CONFIG_AGP_ALI is not set
# CONFIG_AGP_ATI is not set
# CONFIG_AGP_AMD is not set
# CONFIG_AGP_AMD64 is not set

# CONFIG_AGP_SIS is not set
# CONFIG_AGP_SWORKS is not set
# CONFIG_AGP_VIA is not set
# CONFIG_AGP_EFFICEON is not set
dragonfly ~ # zcat /proc/config.gz | grep NVIDIA
# CONFIG_AGP_NVIDIA is not set
# CONFIG_FB_NVIDIA is not set
dragonfly ~ # zcat /proc/config.gz | grep DRM
CONFIG_DRM=m
# CONFIG_DRM_TDFX is not set
# CONFIG_DRM_R128 is not set
# CONFIG_DRM_RADEON is not set
# CONFIG_DRM_I810 is not set
# CONFIG_DRM_I830 is not set
# CONFIG_DRM_I915 is not set
# CONFIG_DRM_MGA is not set
# CONFIG_DRM_SIS is not set
# CONFIG_DRM_VIA is not set
# CONFIG_DRM_SAVAGE is not set
dragonfly ~ #

I assumed the Intel AGP might be usefull since it's an Intel
motherboard but it didn't help so I blacklisted it and it's not
loaded.

Anyone able to spot what must be an obvious mistake?

Current xorg.conf file it attached. It was done by hand so it could
easily have big problems. I tried running with no xorg.conf file but
it didn't work either.

hald is running.

Thanks,
Mark

The nvidia driver in not bundled with the kernel, it is an external third-
party module.

You need to set /usr/src/linux to point to the kernel(s) you intend to run,
and emerge nvidia-drivers for each one. Then modprobe -r nvidia ; modprobe
nvidia and restart X

module-rebuild is a great tool for this. It knows what out-of-tree modules you
use and the ebuilds that install them, and remembers the list (because the
time will come when you forget and pull your hair out before you remember)

Yes, but I don't think they are compatible with the 2.6.33 kernel. There
was a
patch for the 190.53 driver released yesterday to make it work with
2.6.33. Try
that.


Be lucky,

Nvidia's site seems to say that your card is supported up to the current
release; perhaps try the latest version and see if it works? I seem to
remember Nvidia's driver is rather kernel-version specific; if you're
using a recent kernel, you should probably use a recent driver.

SOLVED:

Mar 1 14:36:49 dragonfly kernel: NVRM: This PCI I/O region assigned
to your NVIDIA device is invalid:
Mar 1 14:36:49 dragonfly kernel: NVRM: BAR1 is 0M @ 0x0 (PCI:0001:00.0)
Mar 1 14:36:49 dragonfly kernel: NVRM: The system BIOS may have
misconfigured your GPU.
Mar 1 14:36:49 dragonfly kernel: nvidia: probe of 0000:01:00.0 failed
with error -1
Mar 1 14:36:49 dragonfly kernel: NVRM: The NVIDIA probe routine
failed for 1 device(s).
Mar 1 14:36:49 dragonfly kernel: NVRM: None of the NVIDIA graphics
adapters were initialized!


And indeed it was a BIOS setting.

Fixed and working now.

Sorry for the noise,
Mark

Can you give a link please? I'm having trouble compiling nvidia-drivers
with 2.6.33 and I can't see much on the nvidia site.

emerge =x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-190.53-r1

nvidia-drivers-195.36.03 also compiles with kernel 2.6.33 as that is
what I'm
using here - but I had to unmask it first.


Be lucky,

190.53-r1 is what I'm using.

It works fine but so far things like glxgears are very slow. I'll need
to look at that, maybe over the weekend. It has no effect that I can
see on what my wife does with the machine. But should it effect 2D-ish
things like HuluDesktop or Myth? I cannot see it. They seem to work
fine.

So it is. I sync daily but I hadn't got this version until now. Thanks
