Well made a few more changes.

Found out that it was missing that fact that nouveau was not being detected as running.

# 6sep2013: [Meeki] added LH64 to the skip of msg to run xorg after reboot (see line 286)
# 6sep2013: [Meeki] -a changed to -o meeki (see line 280)
# 6sep2013: [Meeki] tons of edits (see line 284 to 290)

Here is the file with changes.
nvidia - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/12968946/lighthouse/nvidia

Also some unofficial pets

32bit getnvidia-unofficial
pet - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/12968946/lighthouse/packages/getnvidia/getnvidia-unofficial-0.9.8.1.pet
md5 - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/12968946/lighthouse/packages/getnvidia/getnvidia-unofficial-0.9.8.1.pet.md5

64bit getnvidia-unofficial
pet - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/12968946/lighthouse/packages/getnvidia/getnvidia_unofficial-0.9.9-64.pet
md5 - https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/12968946/lighthouse/packages/getnvidia/getnvidia_unofficial-0.9.9-64.pet.md5

All these edits were done in Lighthouse64 (64bit puppy)
I don't know if it will fix or break the current kernel check issue in another distro.

Check the file structure of your pets. The 32bit one won't install because the important bits are buried in several layers of directories from your system.

Yep, looks like I did botch the pet build.

Fixed it. rather fixed two letters in my rightclick dir2pet app for rox.
the dir structure you see is from building the pet not in the containing dir.

EDIT: Sorry, the getnvidia-0.9.9 was wrong in the permission of /root/Startup/nvidia.
Check the permission of /root/Startup/nvidia and add executable bits if it isn't, by 'chmod +x /root/Startup/nvidia'. Fixed in the getnvidia-0.9.9.1.

getnvidia-0.9.9.pet to install NVIDIA driver / build SFS/PET.

For 64bit Puppies, Fatdog 64 or Lighthouse 64, try
getnvidia-0.9.9-64.pet

# 4sep2013: [Meeki] Must check xconfig file with nvidia-xconfig -t (see line(s) 255-258 & 296-304)

I am running Puppy Slacko 5.5 and mt video card is the Nvidia 7300 LE.
I tried both driver PETS that are associated with an Nvidia driver for it and neither worked.
I can live with using the nuveau driver, but thought I would pass my problem along.

Some old nvidia drivers for kernel 3.x need patches.
See..

PostPosted: Mon 08 Jun 2015, 17:22    Post subject: GLX server fails  

In some case, the GL library fails. The nvidia-settings complains "Failed to query the GLX server vendor." for OpenGL/GLX Information (see the attached image).

SOLUTION:
1. Remove the links, /usr/lib/libGL.so and libGL.so.1.
2. Restart the X server.

PostPosted: Fri 12 Jun 2015, 03:55    Post subject: nvidia 304 driver for kernel 4?  

Hi

I am having problems making the 304.125 driver for kernel 4 with getnvidia.

I have tried various combinations of devx and kernel 4 versions but they all exhibit the same errors.

The errors produced by trying to make a 304.125 driver for vividpup + kernel 4.0.4-32-pae are attached below (remove false .gz).

Anybody tried this? Found any patches? (how do you apply patches to the .run file??)

Annybody know how to do the suggested:
Quote:
Run 'make oldconfig && make prepare' on kernel src to fix it.


Thanks

PostPosted: Sat 13 Jun 2015, 12:22    Post subject: Nvidia 304 driver for k4 - patches needed  

I've managed to make an nvidia 304 driver for kernel 4

3 patch files are needed:
nv-drm.patch
nvidia-3.19.patch
nvidia-4.0.patch

1st 2 obtained from: https://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/tree/trunk?h=packages/nvidia-304xx
3rd from:https://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/tree/trunk?h=packages/nvidia-340xx

I was not able to use getnvidia to make the driver - had to do it from 1st principles (patches in same folder as .run file):
Code:
./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-304.125.run --extract-only
cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86-304.125
patch -p0 -i ../nv-drm.patch"
patch -p1 -i ../nvidia-3.19.patch"
patch -p0 -i ../nvidia-4.0.patch"
#drop out to console, use xorgwizard to select xvesa driver, then
./nvidia-installer
