Display woes

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



A couple of display woes afoot:

1) I'm having a bit of difficulty getting the latest nvidia graphics drivers to run ( installed from atrpms via yum), here's what happens:

# yum install nvidia-graphics8762
-- all OK

# nvidia-graphics-switch 8762
# tail /var/log/messages
-- snip --
Jun 2 23:56:12 benlancaster yum: Installed: nvidia- graphics8762.x86_64 1:1.0_8762-72.rhfc5.at Jun 2 23:56:24 benlancaster kernel: NVRM: loading NVIDIA Linux x86_64 Kernel Module 1.0-8762 Mon May 15 13:58:14 PDT 2006

# init 5
# tail /var/log/messages
Jun  2 23:56:46 benlancaster init: Switching to runlevel: 5
Jun 2 23:56:47 benlancaster kernel: NVRM: not using NVAGP, kernel was compiled with GART_IOMMU support!!

2) I can't seem to disable DPMS (screen blanking). My xorg.conf contains:
Option      "dpms" "false"
... in the right section, and I've also used:
/usr/X11R6/bin/xset -dpms
...in my ~/.Xclients startup script (which is being successfully executed)

All in all, I'm pretty stumped! Any pointers would be gratefully received.
