Description Max Loparev 2004-02-07 03:59:22 UTC
gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.1-r1 works fine even with previous kernel module version 5328 on top of nvidia-glx version 5336 There is no error messages in Xfree.log.
Comment 1 Martin Holzer (RETIRED) 2004-02-07 04:02:48 UTC
did you reemerge nvidia-kernel ?
Comment 2 Max Loparev 2004-02-07 06:22:37 UTC
>did you reemerge nvidia-kernel ? certainly
Comment 3 John Mylchreest (RETIRED) 2004-02-07 09:30:07 UTC
have you changed anything in the framebuffer configuration? Everything is working OK gere for me with 5336 and 2.6.2 I know theres some weirdness with the framebuffer/vga selection. perhaps having a play with those options?
Comment 4 Max Loparev 2004-02-07 09:47:08 UTC
i did make oldconfig with .config from the 2.6.1-gentoo-r1 and yes I'm using framebuffer for bootsplash, and it works fine I'd tried to not use vga=xxxx with the same results. ok i'll try to exclude it from kernel at compile time...
Comment 5 Max Loparev 2004-02-07 10:20:23 UTC
removing Framebuffer support from kernel hadn't helped. X is not switching to graphic mode, and last lines in the log are: (II) Setting vga for screen 0.

Comment 6 John Mylchreest (RETIRED) 2004-02-07 10:44:29 UTC
could you try enabling AGPGART and adding the option for AGPGARt as neccessary in xf86config as in http://dev.gentoo.org/~johnm
Comment 7 Max Loparev 2004-02-07 12:45:14 UTC
NvAGP "3" hadn't helped do you use NPTL?
Comment 8 John Mylchreest (RETIRED) 2004-02-07 14:33:55 UTC
yes I do
Comment 9 Wojtek Sczygiol 2004-02-09 04:50:52 UTC
After emerging gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.2, nvidia-glx-1.0.5336 and nvidia-kernel-1.0.5336-r1 I had the same problem. I'm also using vesafb an bootsplash. Loading the nvidia module _before_ starting X solved the problem for me. So the solution is: echo "nvidia" >> /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6
Comment 10 Max Loparev 2004-02-09 10:53:30 UTC
Adding nvidia to autoload helps me too. It seems that something broken in module autoloading mechanizm. I have another problem with the same strange results with alsa module loading with this kernel... http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=40701
Comment 11 Jason Cox (RETIRED) 2004-03-25 15:11:04 UTC
Are those experiencing problems using udev instead of devfs? I believe the problem lies there. The modules is loaded fine, but the devices aren't getting created fast enough.
Comment 12 Max Loparev 2004-03-27 01:41:06 UTC
No, i'm using devfs, and it's late now to talk about 2.6.2 because under 2.6.4 and maybe new ARCH="~x86" hotplug there is no such problems at all.
Comment 13 Jason Cox (RETIRED) 2004-04-08 22:45:01 UTC
Ok, so an upgrade of the kernel fixed it. Closing the bug.
