With new nvidia-settings util, here's hoping it works with kernel 2.6.x.

Hey, 4k stack support, finally.

One more kernel option I don't need to worry about.

How does it perform compared to 4496 and 5336?

Seems faster/smoother all round, haven't done proper tests/benchmarks yet tho, 44.96 was always best for me and 53.36 gave rubbish 3D performance, but 61.06 looks like a winner so far anyway and the nvidia-settings program is a handy addition, also no installation problems.

6106 hangs my xorg-x11 on startup... Blank screen after starting x. Switched back to 5336 which has been working great.

What is that 4k stack option for anyways? Does it help anywhere? Should one be using it.

Btw: dev-sources-2.6.7-r7

What did you do to get this running?

Greetings,

Martin

installs and runs 'ok' here .. althought the performance feels like a bit worse than the kernel driver, ( disapointed )
I dont play games, so i don't care very much about FPS, but certanly the 2D performance is not very good.



:(

I also have the same problem as fourwood.

I've tried chmod 777 on the affected files and I still get the error.

Any ideas?

Found a fix for the access error on another thread:
Code:
FEATURES="-sandbox -usersandbox" ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge nvidia-glx

Rebooting now...

For those of you experiencing sandbox errors it should not be happening ... which I know is of little use when it is... Basically I tested that it would work (having had that be a bug in 5336) -- and it worked here. Theres a bug on bugzilla about it for 5336-r2 IIRC post problems there and we'll look into it some more.

LLoydBates your problem is more perplexing again.. it basically says to me that your /usr/src/linux directory is the kernel you are running, egro it should be setup.. but that include/linux/version.h is missing meaning it is not setup. :? Try running make prepare-all in your kernel tree and remerge. If that doesnt work re-run "make" in your kernel tree to compile it, Ctrl - C it after 30s or so and remerge nvidia-kernel

thx ... running "make prepare-all" fixed it ... strange but true.
maybe it was happening because i was testing out this new koutput thingie .. the new way to build kernelmodules.

This also seems to work for me too, I had the same access violation warning. Thanks.

I had exactly the same problem. This fixed it.
Thanks mates!

Hi afaik the older versions of the nvidia driver wouldn't work with mregparm=3 and 4k stacks - I know this one fixed 4k stacks, what's the status on the other?

Hey, I was wondering...

I installed these new drivers, and everyone says that the new nvidia-settings is nice. But when I installed it, it didn't seem to actually install any executables.

What ebuilds are you guys using that actually install stuff. The one from dev.gentoo.org seems to just install documentation.

for a start .. try (if you have 1.0.6106 installed)
Code:
emerge nvidia-settings


then run as user
Code:
nvidia-settings

have fun :lol:

*edit*
you don't need to use the ones from dev.gentoo.org ... it's already in portage, just sync

I'm not sure whether this has been covered somewhere else :S I searched for 6106 lockup but no dice. I'm not even sure if this is the right place to post this...

Anyway, my computer locks up after modprobe nvidia. Not immediately after, but 5 or so minutes... I didn't start x.org or anything, just staying logged in. The prompt stays blinking but the keyboard doesn't respond. I managed to get icewm started once before it locked up, and the mouse didn't work either. I'm not sure whether this is an issue specific to the 6106 drivers since I just installed gentoo (I feel like I'm defiling my amd64 system by installing gentoo-x86, but madwifi doesn't have amd64 versions of its binary only portion. (Stupid FCC rule... What could someone do with a software programmable transmitter? Turn their wifi card into a microwave?) ) Also, I have an mx700 mouse that is spazzing out in X... It is jumping all around the screen o_O. I don't have console mouse so I can't tell whether this is an X11 quirk...

Help would be appreciated! Keep in mind that you are talking to a relative gentoo newbie... this is only the second time I've installed... No big words ;)
