I have compiled and packaged the Nvidia drivers for the new kernel of Puppy 4.1 (k2.6.25.16). The pet packages also contain OpenGL libraries (libglut and libGLU) and a test program glxgears, so you do not need to install the xorg_dri package for OpenGL support.

NVIDIA-185.18.14-k2.6.25.16.pet is for latest cards (Gf7 - Gf9, G200 -> )

NVIDIA-173.14.12-k2.6.25.16.pet is for newish cards (Gf4 ? - Gf6)

NVIDIA-96.43.07-k2.6.25.16.pet for older cards (Gf2 ? - Gf4 ?)

NVIDIA-71.86.06-k2.6.25.16.pet for prehistoric cards

Get them from http://www.puppylinux.asia/tpp/NOP

or http://download.tuxfamily.org/nop/

Hi gray,
Firstly thanks for the drivers.

And now the query.

The drivers you complied for 3.x
for my hardware(gf6) was 100.14.19 - gf5 to gf8

These version numbers seem to indcate that 173.14.12 would be the follow on version (173 higher than 100) but gf7 ? - Gf9 does not include my gf6.

Just a bit parnoid to try as in the past when I've destoryed X config its taken days to sort out.

PostPosted: Mon 06 Oct 2008, 00:56    Post subject: Rename pet files  

DC: I should have read my old post for applicability - tried to do it from memory. The fact is though that we dont really know which cards the drivers will work on - there is little info on the Nvidia site. I would experiment with the Puppy live CD and then try the latest driver first. As it is a live CD session nothing is messed up. Smile

Max Headroom : Just rename the pet file to remove the -k2.6.25.16 from the name before you try and install, ie to NVIDIA-96.43.07.pet

The problem is that I renamed the pet files after they were created with dir2pet to distinguish them from the earlier kernel versions. Unfortunatetly petget doesnt like that and insists the name used to create the pet file is used Rolling Eyes

No need to rename anymore - corrected the pet files now

Will have to give up on this, complete no go. I downloaded all pets, renamed them, installed them, control-alt-delete to drop out of x and re-ran xorgwizard or nvidia-xconfig and end up with a frozen system. Confused

BFG 8800 GT 512 OC

Xorgwizard shows Nvidia but unknown board and will not put in any settings. Tweak to set refresh comes up blank settings and I have to use vesa to get a display. Crying or Very sad

Standard xorg setting will take 1480 * 1280* 24 no problem.

Any suggestions as to what I am screwing gratefully appreciated or maybe to a thread which may enlighten me. Laughing

Gray, thanks a lot for your drivers. It's amazing (and I'm very thrilled) to have the possibility of running nvidia's 3d acceleration in puppy, however, everytime I try to download something from your NOP files I get the following message:
Quote:
Concurrent download limit exceeded.

With everything and everytime, no exception.

How can your files be obtained?Are there any other mirrors?

regards,

Alvaro

ps. Quick question about the nvidia drivers. Is it enough with just running the .pet file to get hardware acceleration? What happens if I plug my usb drive into a pc with other graphics, will it load regular xorg drivers for it?
