  • NVIDIA GeForce 3 Ti200 on Fedora Core 6

    This is a wierdo. When i install NVIDIA-drivers, install Beryl, everything should be allright, yes? NO! I can not use the glxinfo | grep direct, glxgears does not work, I cant use the OpenGL/GLX-tab on the NVIDIA X conf panel. Anyone?

    I have tried to have Composite on enable and disable, true, false, on and off, but I dont understand this anymore, what the heck is the problem? Do I need to load the DRI and freetype modules and others?

      What NVIDIA driver version you using?

      Can you post the output of: cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep "EE"

        Give u everything:

        [root@localhost krypton]# cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep "EE"
        (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.

          That output just means that no errors occurred when starting X.

          9361 is out and fixes some GeForce3 OpenGL problems -- http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-9631.html Try that.

          If it still doesn't work post the output of glxinfo.

                Dud you build Beryl from source or what repo? What else did you setup with Beryl?

                So OpenGL is now working with 9631?

                        Livna drivers can be debated... It largely depends if you want to build the drivers yourself, etc...

                        Personally I use the manufacturer-supplied packages. For NVIDIA I use the installer and with the ATI drivers I use the buildpkg ability.

                        Are you using the NVIDIA.com drivers or Livna?

                        Do you have Composite enabled in your xorg.conf? (WIth NVIDIA you can have it enabled, and should).

                        When you start Beryl what is the output?

                          I use NVIDIAS closed drivers, composite is enabled. I have to reboot to give you the output. xorgconfig was a mess. but, should this be like it is:
                          Section "Files"
                          ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
                          EndSection

                            here it is... Not very nice for me, I think.

                            Xlib: extension "XVideo" missing on display ":0.0".
                            xvinfo: No X-Video Extension on :0.0
                            compiz: No sync extension

                              Code:
                              Section "Module"
                                  Load  "dbe"
                                  Load  "v4l"
                                  Load  "extmod"
                                  Load  "type1"
                                  Load  "freetype"
                                  Load  "glx"
                              EndSection
                              Try having those modules loaded in your xorg.conf and see if it addresses those errors.
