Anyone else having troubles with the nvidia kernel module? 2.6.6-love4 compiles and boots fine, but after re-emerging nvidia-kernel and glx, I get the error that "screens were found but none were usable" when trying to boot x. I had to revert back to 2.6.6-rc3-love1, and everything works again. Any ideas?

Wierd. It's working now. I've never had to do it before, but modprobe nvidia seems to have fixed the problem. Thanks! :lol:

Still not working for me either. I've recompiled nvidia-kernel and nvidia-glx. I've found these errors in my logs.
Code:
[kernel] 0: nvidia: trying to map 0xf79f1000 to kernel space, but we're in an interrupt or holding a spinlock

Code:
[kernel] 0: nvidia: loading NVIDIA Linux x86 NVIDIA Kernel Module  1.0-5341

Code:

first use the latest nvidia-kernel module (1.0.5336-r3) In my case I hade to create my nvidia device nodes manualy I am using UDEV.

Code:
mknod -m 660 /dev/nvidia0 c 195 0
mknod -m 660 /dev/nvidia1 c 195 1
mknod -m 660 /dev/nvidia2 c 195 2
mknod -m 660 /dev/nvidia3 c 195 3
mknod -m 660 /dev/nvidia4 c 195 4
mknod -m 660 /dev/nvidia5 c 195 5
mknod -m 660 /dev/nvidia6 c 195 6
mknod -m 660 /dev/nvidia7 c 195 7
mknod -m 660 /dev/nvidiactl c 195 255


I call this from my /etc/conf.d/local.start

And you should be fine

I'm also getting this error. Nvidia drivers 4496. It worked perfectly fine with 2.6.6-love2.

edit: It works with 5336, but I lose about 1200 fps in glxgears. I wanna use my tried and true 4496 :(

Any ideas?

Also, bootsplash works on shutdown, but on startup it has the normal black framebuffer and then switches to the custom framebuffer at the end of boot. Is there something I need to do to get it working normally again?

Thanks


With regard to the ATi drivers, have a look here and here. The first thread has a link to some ebuilds that I whipped up quickly that automatically apply the relevant patches but they're only for the 3.7.6 drivers, if you use 3.2.8 then you'll have to modify the 3.2.8 ebuild accordingly but its fairly simple.

As for bootsplash, I got the same issue you describe when I had Register Arguments enabled. As this also breaks the ATi drivers it's probably best to go into the Processor Type and Features menu and make sure its disabled (-love reverses the patch that makes it permanent so it should still be there).

Got my middle-clicking ability back, which is nice, and bootsplash again works for the first time in a long time. I am pleased. 8-)

Also, I was wondering, if I'm only using the initrd for bootsplash, is there any reason to make a new one for different kernels?

Thanks for the quality release. :)

I've never had to change the initrd across a kernel upgrade but I'm just using the initrds Gentoo provide in their bootsplash package, home-brew initrds may well be different.

So with love4, nick's is back? Is it so that Nicks wasn't with love1 & love2? If it is back with love4, man what a difference, at least on my machine.

What is the preferred method for installing these patches? Should I just download the vanilla kernel and apply the patches, or should I use the love-sources ebuild that I see on the website?

I came across something weird.. not sure if I'm forgetting something or if there is something new in this kernel that's doing this. I just upgraded from 2.6.4-love(something) to 2.6.6-love4 and now X windows is only giving me a small window that doesn't take up the whole screen. Nothing in my XF86Config changed. I did a clean config and I also tried copying over my old .config and trying. Both have the same problem. Anyone have any idea's? It's a Dell Inspiron 1100 in case anyone's wondering. I have applied the latest bios which fixes the old problem with it doing this.

yeah guys, that´s why i love the love ;-)
my first love-kernel for a long time, since i need reiser4...and i missed the love.
Don´t know bout your hair, but you´re magicians :-) No other kernel seems to be as responsive as love; well, i don´t know what else to say, RESPECT!

btw, what do i have to pass to the kernel on boot (nforce2)? s/t like "acpi_skip_timer_override" or am i messing up s/t?

Awesome, thanks for the tip! I was missing out on the whole 2.6.6 series.

Anyone who wants win4lin to compile needs to change the following:
Code:
(Line 1532 arch/i386/mki-adapter26/mki26.c using 2.6.6-love4)


Change

   MKIA_ASSERT(atomic_read(&pageinfop->counter) >= 2);

to

   MKIA_ASSERT(page_count(pageinfop) >= 2);


Or, if you patch by hand, change line 22193 of the love patch as above, or if you do win4lin by hand, line 1906 in the mki-adapter26_1_3_5.patch

It works fine on mine so hurrah!

HTH.

/edit: sorry for the multiple edits but I wanted to test it first and have only just been able to reboot - it works fine for all those wanting win4lin and love. :D

Code:
thinkloz root # uname -a
Linux thinkloz.org 2.6.6-love4 #1 Mon May 17 00:14:00 PDT 2004 i686 Intel(R) Celeron(TM) CPU                1066MHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

Working great here. One question though, I put elevator="v30e" in my kernel line but it still says I'm running anticipatory. Am I missing something here or just making a really dumb mistake? 8O

@yngwin

Is something special about your ebuilds I mean I just copied the old ebuild to the new version numbers and emerged the latest stuff, which seemed to have worked.


REISER4: Is anyone using it without problems? I still have problem with unmounting. Months ago I used to get an oops, now CPU goes 100% and stays like this. A normal shutdown is impossible too as umount is not killable.

I just compiled in reiser4 with largekeys and did mkfs.reiser4 /dev/sda4 and that was it. Anything else I have to take care of? The fstab line is:
Code:

/dev/sda5              /mnt/test        reiser4        rw,noauto,users              0 0

As for bootsplash, Register Arguments was disabled already, wonder what else would cause it.

Nothing really, except I made reiser4progs dependant on the latest libaal, as they should be.

I'm using it without problems here, so far.
