Mine works fine except for some annoying flickering that happens every.... ohhhh..... 13 seconds or so. Did anyone ever figure out how to rid of the flickering?!?! (it's been haunting me since I switched to 2.6.6)

.....I'm sure it was covered in another thread, but I have yet to find a thread that ACTUALLY solved it. Any help would be appreciated.

If your problem is similar to this:

It's a hardware cursor problem. The workaround is putting
Code:


Option "HWCursor" "off"
Option "SWCursor" "on"


in the device section in your XF86Config (or xorg.conf).

Uhh... Do I have to use a custom ebuild to get my nvidia drivers to work? I just did emerge sync and then emerged nvidia-kernel and nvidia-glx (latest versions)... And if I do have to use custom ebuilds, where do I get them?

Thanks!

The ebuilds are already in portage. Follow the steps shown here
http://reviewed.homelinux.org/gentoo/ebuilds/index.html.en#toc3

After you have made the portage package from the ebuild, emerge the new driver as usual:
Code:
emerge nvidia-glx


If you don't have the make.conf configured to accept masked packages, you will end up with the older version. To bypass this, simply type:
Code:
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge nvidia-glx


You shouldn't have to emerge nvidia-kernel since it is a dependency of nvidia-glx. Also, the given keyword doesn't have a straight dash in front. It's a ~

Hope it works.

I did some tests:

Code:
Glxgears:

Driver   NvAgp   Agpgart   Agpgart+VIA support

43.63   3975      2947        3975
44.96   3700      -           3700
46.20   3703      -           3703
53.28   3551      -           3551
61.06   3575      3119        3575

RTCW (800x600x16, Checkpoint demo):

43.63   129      108          129
44.96   131      -            131
46.20   132      -            132
53.28   100      -            100
61.06   100      89           100

All results are in frames per second.
- means I couldn't be bothered.

Test rig: AthlonXP 2600+, KT400, 512M DDR, GF4Ti4200 64M
        dev-sources 2.6.7, xorg-x11


Best to stick with 4x.xx series for 3D gaming then :P

I have emerged both packages... The problem I'm having is not gtting the divers emerged but that after modprobeing, not doing anything afterward, not having x.org running, no nothing! The thing just locks up, the cursor keeps blinking but it doesn't respond to anything. not the mouse, not the keyboard. o_O
Cany you help with that?

hmmm.... nope. still flickers. It doesn't quite go back to the console.... just flickers in the same manner as if the power was surging.... but I know that isn't the case.

Uhm, if anyone wants to try helping or thinks they may have some crazy idea that may possibly fix it, feel free to message me (AIM: TheUnabeefer) .... so as to not clutter this thread with my petty problems. =O)

[rant what your step here. I'm pissed. Question to follow rant though.]

I must say I'm a bit pissed. I did a emerge -U world and it updated the nvidia drivers. I thought well, why not restart the GUI and put them to use. Oh hell no. I type in kdm and it comes right back with no error message or nothing.

I search around here and see you guys talking about the 4K stack thing. I look and mine is not included. Recompile my kernel. That ain't so bad though.

Here is what pissed me off though. I had to reboot. :evil: :evil: I had almost three weeks of uptime here. I didn't even shut down during a recent storm. Now I have this:

Code:
root@smoker /etc # uptime
 05:07:58 up 12 min,  2 users,  load average: 0.01, 0.15, 0.15
root@smoker /etc #


Ooooooo I'm pissed.

[/rant. I'm done now. still pissed]

Is that the reason for my problem? The error log shows "no usable screens found" and it wouldn't load the Nvidia module. It worked before. It works now. The only change was the 4K stack thing. Since I lost my uptime, will this make me run faster with the 4K thing or what?

I hope this makes something better. That may help my feeling a bit, not much but some anyway.

:cry: :cry: :evil: :evil:

2.6.7-ck4 w/hid polling patch for smootha mouze & 4k stacks (theyere all the rage!)
nvidia 6106
NF7-S v2.0, AXP 2400m @ 205x11
GFFX5800XT 128MB

XFree 4.3
KDE 3.2

1280x1024x24bits

Never had any luck EMERGING my nvidia drivers, so I just used the nvidia installer. No problems so far. The only gotcha with the new kernel (was on 2.6.2) is that they changed the damn hid module to usbhid so I had to recompile to get X to work.

This fix worked for me too (but I was having the problem on nvidia-kernel).

However, it's a bit of a crap way for Gentoo to have to do this. Is there not a way of disabling sandbox and usersandbox in the ebuild or in an /etc/portage/package.features file (there isn't one listed in man portage). If not, shouldn't there be!!!!

emerge -U world


You should not do that. Add packages you want to have unstable (~x86) or unmasked to /etc/portage/package.keywords resp. package.unmask. Read man portage to find out how.

emerge -U world will sooner or later break your system. One shouldn't type "ACCEPT_KEYWORDS=~x86 emerge sth" at all, rather add the package to package.keywords.

Its probably unrelated but it _might_ be the reason for your problems.

I did add the packages to the proper files. Emerge -U world was sort of a temp thing.

I was mostly pissed that the new driver 'required' me to redo my kernel. That sucked. :twisted: :twisted:

It works. Still lost my uptime. :cry:

Later

Hmm, I haven't had a good deal of sucess with the latest drivers. 3D performance was ok, however my refresh rate was all screwed up. At 1280x1024 in Never Winter Nights the refresh rate was so bad it looked like there were horizontal black lines. It was aweful. The only resolution I got a decent refresh rate with was 1400x1050... and the game ran too slow @ that res (low fps)

FYI: I have a FX5200.

I don't know why the refresh rate was messed up, but it works fine with 53.36.

I need help.. (previously posted in the other gamers thread for nvidia).... (is this therefore a double post even though there was no resolution ???)

I have installed these new nvidia drivers, installed nvidia-glx, updated gl and got the basic sytem working but:

I get this message with glxgears, ,
xfe,
xscreensaver,
and several other apps.......
Code:

 error while loading shared libraries: libnvidia-tls.so.1: cannot handle TLS data


This has been raised for ut but not as a general issue. I have scanned forums, read bug reports in gentoo, read linux.org forums and the general consensus is that you run:
Code:

nvidia-installer --force-TLS=classic
when installing the drivers....
In gentoo the ebuild does not installl the nvidia-installer, nor can I see a way of passing this option in the ebuild...

I hope that explains the issue, I have been working on this for a couple of days on and off because my main apps ( xorg , firefox, Thunderbird, fluxbox.... etc...) all work

Any ideas ?

Typical. They would fix the overscan problem just as I move house and no longer have a TV by my PC!

I did loop some S-Video cable between my MX440SE and my PVR-250 capture card to see what the nvidia-settings program could do with my TV out. Sure enough, the TV-output changed size as I altered the Overscan option. No more editing XFree86Config, restarting X, checking the output and repeating ad nauseum...

Previous to these 6x.xx drivers, I hadn't had TV overscan correction working since way back. I don't think their drivers liked the integrated TV encoders on the GeForce4 MX chips.

On the down side, with TV-out enabled and framebuffer consoles, you still get vaguely-character-shaped garbage if you try to switch VTs back to a text (well, framebuffer) one from X. Quite annoying that. Still, overall a thumbs up for the 6x.xx series.

PS: Kernel 2.6.5-gentoo-r1 with agpgart, SiS 746 chipset.

Hey there
I am trying to install a working nvidia driver. I am using kernel 2.6.7. I disabeled the 4k in the kernel, did the emerge nvidia-glx, emerge nvidia-kernel, opengl-update nvidia but I still have the "no screens available" error.

I started checking on my system and found out that my nvidia driver is the:

media-video/nvidia-glx-1.0.4496-r2
and
media-video/nvidia-kernel-1.0.4496-r3

How do I upgrade the driver to 6106 or 5336?
I am still strugling a little bit with all this 'emerge'ing... which brings up another question:
is there something like synaptic(debian) in gentoo?

thanks

If u wan a specific version, do a
Code:
emerge =example-1.2.3

There's also something like synaptic(debian) u might wan to take a look. But I personally don't use it so cannot say how gd izzit. http://remerge.sourceforge.net./

Ibermude: 4496 is the latest "stable" nVidia drivers. Later drivers work just as well (and support newer cards), but have horribly broken ebuilds. :evil:

And if you've got a GeForce 6800, in order to use all of that card's features you need a 6xxx driver, such as the 6106.
