The digits "6.8.1" was in my head because of xorg.freedesktop.org. Sorry :oops:

Ok, I finally got it working. culprits?
1.) Under ACPI, CONFIG_X86_PM_TIMER should NOT be set.
2.) APIC has to be disabled too.

Thanks a lot Apexman, you rock!!

PS: did you notice that gnome-settings-daemon gets killed during resume?

Hmm, it's enabled in my config. But this may be hardware-related situaton, I think.

For everyone that is experiencing OpenGL issues, please exit X and do the following
Code:

emerge -C nvidia-glx
opengl-update xorg-x11
rm -rf /usr/lib/opengl/nvidia
emerge nvidia-glx
restart X



I followed these instructions but UT2004 still gives me the openGL library can't be loaded message. :(

I have tried every solution listed so far, but I still have the same problem;

After I hit "startx", X will start up but stop at the Nvidia splash screen.

I have a GeForce 4 MX 440 (with 128 megs of RAM). I am using the most current Xorg, on a Stage 1 install, NPTL-Enabled, and 2.6.9 kernel.

I am not getting any errors in dmesg, or the Xorg log. In fact, the mouse pointer still moves around, and on some occasions I can see the Enlightenment themed mouse pointer. Notably, I have also tried it with twm, and got the same result.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

So, in short, a lot of people are having this problem, and a solution (as of yet) doesn't exist.

Well...I've had phenomenal luck with drivers for Linux so far...perhaps it is my turn to pay the piper and be stuck waiting for a driver...

@people getting OpenGL problems starting games: if you're using composite, add Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "true" to the device section of xorg.conf.

No problems here: i'm using fx5200, 2.6.9-gentoo-r1, no preempt, 4k stacks, ntpl, xorg-6.7.0

ET seems a bit smoother when there's 25+ people in the server.

If this doesn't work try using
Code:
LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libGL.so.1 ut2004

This fixed my problems with Doom 3 and UT 2004

6629 doesn't seem to work on the P3 box with a riva tnt2. The module loads, kdm starts, nvidia splash shows, the login window appears with only the user icon visible and the rest still having the nvidia splash covering it or behind it like it's partially transparent. I can type in my passwd and kde starts but it looks the same, moust over the text in dialogs will make it visible (like a right click menu) but some things are missing or transparent and it's really slow. Composite is not enabled and I disabled renderaccell too with no change. I changed my kernel and removed agp support and there was no difference using the nvidia agp. The P3 is on an intel 440BX/ZX/DX mobo (dell).

I just went back to the 6611 drivers since that box doesn't need any performance boosts in the video really.

A quick suggestion for those having problems with TNT-based cards:

In /usr/share/doc/nvidia-glx-*/README.gz, there is "APPENDIX H: TNT SPECIFIC ISSUES", with a few suggestions. I hope this helps.

I've never figured out what to use to read these .gz files.

I like less.:
Code:
# emerge less
# less /usr/share/doc/nvidia-glx-<version>/README.gz
