Please upgrade driver from 190.36 to 190.42 for testing because of upgraded kernel to 2.6.32 and xorg 1.7.3

New stable version 190.42 works normally with these packages

 Nvidia 195.36.24 seems incompatible with testing

Nvidia driver 195.36.24 is correctly compiled on testing and the Xserver starts normally the problem is that nvidia doesn't load the glx module so it turns out that no 3D works on testing with nvidia

Still trying to see if it is a configuration problem or testing needs an upgrade to beta version 256.25.

EDIT: The problem seems to be xorg loading the incorrect glx module, from /var/log/Xorg.0.log:


[ 36.644] (II) LoadModule: "glx"
[ 36.645] (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/mesa/libglx.so
[ 36.670] (II) Module glx: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
[ 36.670] compiled for 1.8.0, module version = 1.0.0
[ 36.670] ABI class: X.Org Server Extension, version 3.0

While it should be loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia-glx/libglx.so

So adding this to xorg.conf should fix the problem:

Section "Files"
ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia-glx"
EndSection

No I was wrong it didn't fix the problem (it did set the modulepath to the write place but it still loads the mesa instead of nvidia-glx

EDIT2: My mistake!!! But a modification needs to be done

No need to upgrade just for those who are using nvidia please add to your xorg.conf the following lines:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
Section "Files"
ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia-glx"
ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
EndSection


PS.: the modules/extensions/nvidia-glx line needs to come before the modules one otherwise xorg will try to load nouveau glx instead

Hi everyone,

I'm here to request for an upgrade on nvidia driver to version 256.35, and also the implementation of a config file for xorg 1.8

So that users no longer need to do a nvidia-xconfig after installed the nvidia driver, the nvidia package should install the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf with the following content:

Code[In neuem Fenster öffnen]
Section "Files"
ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia-glx"
ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Default nvidia Device"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "NoLogo" "True"
EndSection


This will make much easier for users to install nvidia driver, or to remove it and comeback to using nouveau.
