Description Sumit Khanna 2009-02-10 14:30:30 UTC
nVidia just released the 180.29 drivers last night. This drive should fix a couple of the VDPAU issues. 

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Jose daLuz 2009-02-11 03:48:02 UTC
Renaming the 180.27 ebuild to 180.29 works. No issues with the driver itself so far.
Comment 2 Sumit Khanna 2009-02-11 16:10:13 UTC
I renamed the ebuild to 180.29 last night and put it in my local overlay, emerged it and reloaded the module/restarted X. It seems to work fine with no stability issues on ~amd64 so far.
Comment 3 Fred Krogh 2009-02-12 05:33:26 UTC
It fails to start X for me on an Opteron system.  I'm using gdm-2.20.9.  The last nvidia-drivers that works for me is 177.82.  I have heard that gdm-2.24? works, but is is not yet in portage using amd~.

Comment 4 Fred Krogh 2009-02-16 22:54:15 UTC
I just tried gdm-2.20.9-r1 with nvidia-drivers-180.29, and X still fails to start for me.
Comment 5 Doug Goldstein gentoo-dev 2009-03-08 18:02:00 UTC
Already in the tree.

> Already in the tree.

I am puzzled.  What is in the tree and what tree are we talking about?
If there is something later than gdm-2.20.9-r1, I'd be happy to try it.  Likewise for nvidia-drivers after 180.35.  Neither is showing up for me on recent synchs.
Comment 7 Ricardo Mendoza (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-03-10 19:32:02 UTC
180.37 is now in the tree thanks to Cardoe. If stuff keeps breaking for you then do a separate bug report and attach the logs.

This didn't show up for me when I synced yesterday.  When it does, I'll give it a try and report the results.  I suspect the problem is in gdm because of this message when I try to start x.

** Message: Could not connect to session manager: Could not get owner of name 'org.gnome.SessionManager': no such name

But perhaps that is just noise?

Comment 9 Doug Goldstein gentoo-dev 2009-03-10 20:03:55 UTC
Totally outside the scope of this bug... but you've installed ConsoleKit, which gdm will attempt to use but did not follow the instructions after installing ConsoleKit to add it to your default runlevel with:

rc-update add consolekit default

The following will work to remedy the situation for your current boot after running the above:

/etc/init.d/consolekit start && /etc/init.d/xdm restart

Then logging back in as your user in GDM.

But again.. this is all outside of the scope of bumping nvidia-drivers-180.29
Comment 10 Fred Krogh 2009-03-10 22:06:25 UTC
My problems have disappeared with 180.37.  Thanks for the help.
