PostPosted: Thu 27 May 2010, 14:24    Post_subject:  NVIDIA Drivers for kernel 2.6.33.2 (Lupu500)
Sub_title: Versions: 96.43.16 and 173.14.25
 

Hi

Here are a couple of drivers that i compiled in Lupu500, which i had posted in another thread

Normally i would use one of gray's NVIDIA .pets as a template,
but in Lupu things are in different locations and it made it just a bit more tricky than it would normally have been.

So if you would like to TEST them, please make a backup of your current install first,
or better still test it in a fresh install.


During my tests (about 12 of them) it appears that Lupu does not use Xorg by default (the xorg.conf has no mention of a driver)

So what i did was, bootup Lupu500 using pfix=ram
Close the First Run Configuration and then reboot creating a save file in the process.
Bootup using the new save file and then install the .pet and then Exit to prompt (NOT restart X server),
at the prompt, run xorgwizard choose keyboard and then select Probe and screen res.
Click OK then type xwin and hit Enter.

You should then be using the nvidia driver,
to check if this is the case, go to: Menu > System > System Status and Config > NVIDIA X Server Settings
hopefully everything is OK.


Some Notes:
    The .pet includes the following directory: /usr/local/libGL-originals/
    which contains the following symlinks:
      libGL.so -> ../usr/lib/mesa/libGL.so.1.2
      libGL.so.1 -> ../usr/lib/mesa/libGL.so.1.2
      libGL.so.1.2 -> ../usr/lib/mesa/libGL.so.1.2

    These are copies of the original files that already exist in the /lib directory in Lupu500,
    and i include them as a precaution in case of any problems when they get replaced by symlinks to the NVIDIA files.

    I found that the NVIDIA driver would still work with those files mentioned above,
    but Direct Rendering was not available, that is why i replaced them.

    If you ever decided to uninstall the .pet (via the package manager), the original files will be restored.

#######################
    EDIT:
    To anyone who has already downloaded the package: NVIDIA-96.43.16_lupu500-k2.6.33.2.pet

    unfortunately i left some files in: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/ Embarassed
      libnvidia-wfb.so
      libnvidia-wfb.so.1
      libnvidia-wfb.so.173.14.25

    which obviously do not belong in that package.

    I don't think they are causing any problem, but you might want to delete them anyway.

    For anyone downloading the package from now, i have already uploaded a new package minus those files.

    Sorry for any inconvenience.

Hi there CatDude.

Nice job!

These are prime candidates for Quickpet! People have asked about older nvidia drivers.

So, everybody else, give these drivers a good test.

I'm about to embark on a journey to compile the old vanta driver Laughing , yes I have one of those in my old p3, on which Lupu runs splendidly.

Cheers

Thank you for this Catdude. it is really nice. You explained things as you went along. i think any newbie could use this and be comfortable and get good results.

So you know, it looks like that in 5.1 we will go back to booting directly to the desktop. As you know that means only the partially formed xorg.conf. I just went through installation to make sure there were no problems that it caused to boot to the desktop. On first boot I left the computer auto configured and downloaded and installed the nvidia 173 pet. After installation I exited to a prompt and ran xorgwizard just as you said. When i entered xwin, I was right there in nvidia heaven (where I have not been much lately Wink

Because there are 4 different nvidia drivers (as I count them) we are going to add a recommendation box, or notification box, to the bottom of the first run dialog. If we detect nvidia we will check and recommend the proper pet and offer to download. Thanks again.

<add> I should ask, what percentage of available nvida cards do you think your two drivers would cover? If not the whole spectrum, do you think it would be possible to add one more and cover all nvidia cards?

This was the one thing I could not get to work in Lucid Puppy 5.1 until now. Thank you very much for giving this to us!
I have a Nvidia Quadro NV37GL in a Dell computer. Using-173.14.25 driver, now have full video card operation!

PostPosted: Wed 21 Jul 2010, 14:10    Post_subject: GeForce2 MX/MX 400 graphics board
Sub_title: nvidia list of graphics cards
 

I installed your driver NVIDIA-96.43.16_lupu500-k2.6.33.2.pet
in luci213 and it worked!! Strangely my graphics card isn't on
nvidia's lists anywhere.
After installing new driver here is what I got at terminal:

Code:
# graphix_test

nVidia Corporation NV11 [GeForce2 MX/MX 400] (rev b2)
nVidia
GeForce2

# report-video
VIDEO REPORT: Lucid Puppy, version 213

Chip description:
oem: NVidia
product: NV10 Reference Board Chip Rev A1

Driver used by Xorg:
nvidia

Video mode used by Xorg:
Resolution:  Depth 24  Depth: "Display"

and glxgears returned 4100 frames in 5 seconds
which is several times higher than I have ever
got with this machine before!

I think that nvidia has made a mistake with this
list and left off this card accidentally. Would it
make sense to correct this list? It would make it more
complete.

PostPosted: Wed 21 Jul 2010, 15:47    Post_subject: list of graphics boards supported  

I was able to track down another source that has a
different list of compatible graphic boards
I found a much better list at
ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/96.43.18/README/README.txt
(about 1/4 of way thru long document)
for driver 96.43.18 but nvidia warns
that a newer list is available at http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html
and that's the list without my graphics board!
Here's the list with my graphics board on it.

I honestly have no idea,
as don570 has already discovered, knowing exactly what cards are supported by whatever driver
seems to be a bit of a mystery, depending on what you read.

No problem mate, glad i could help.

@ don570
I also have a PC here that has the same card as yours GeForce2 MX/MX 400
that is the reason i made the NVIDIA-96.43.16_lupu500-k2.6.33.2.pet

I think the NVIDIA site could do with sorting things out,
so that there is no confusion as to what driver supports what card.

Attached are a few more lists (sorry about the size of some of them)
