I installed R6 with the vesa driver since I couldn't get the install to work choosing default. I realize that the proprietary nvidia driver isn't supported any more but I'm trying to get the nv driver to work. I've changed my xorg.conf to the nv driver but x doesn't start. I get the following error in Xorg.0.log.

(EE) module ABI major version (2) doesn't match the server's version (4)

Does this mean the nv driver needs to be updated? What should I be doing to get this to work. How do I go about updating it?

Thanks

Just tried Mythbuntu on the same hardware to make sure the nv driver was still active and working and it is. Any ideas on how to get the nv driver (not the proprietary nvidia driver) to work on LinHES?

I'm not sure how to tell what version I need? Would it be in the log file? If so I'll have to get that on Monday.

It's like the version that's there isn't compiled for the version of X that's running. Shouldn't the latest version of the nv driver work with the latest version of X? Do the people who write the code for X write the nv driver too or are they two seperate projects?

Here's the section of Xorg.0.log that I think you're looking for.

(II) LoadModule: "nv"

(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//nv_drv.so
(II) Module nv: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
compiled for 1.4.2, module version = 2.1.9
Module class: X.Org Video Driver
ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 2.0
(EE) module ABI major version (2) doesn't match the server's version (4)
(II) UnloadModule: "nv"
(II) Unloading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//nv_drv.so
(EE) Failed to load module "nv" (module requirement mismatch, 0)

Thanks

I just upgraded my production machine from R5.5 to R6.01. It's an ASUS Pundit with an onboard SIS graphics chip. R6.01 defaulted to the vesa driver. I tried switching to the sis driver in xorg.conf but get the same error message as the xorg nvidia driver from my previous post.

(II) LoadModule: "sis"

(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//sis_drv.so
(II) Module sis: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
compiled for 1.4.2, module version = 0.9.4
Module class: X.Org Video Driver
ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 2.0
(EE) module ABI major version (2) doesn't match the server's version (4)

I really don't want to go back to R5.5 but the vesa driver is way to slow for SD playback. Any ideas?

Please post if you find a solution. I think I have the same Pundit, same problem.

Just upgraded from R6.01 to R6.02 using the upgrade script and the sis driver still doesn't work. At least I'm ready for R6.03 now. Hopefully these drivers will be fixed for that.

I managed to get the sis driver working by adding the following at the top of my xorg.conf:

Section "ServerFlags"
Option "IgnoreABI" "True"
EndSection

The audio to video sync is out a little though, but that might be down to something else I need to change (any suggestions)?

I added the ServerFlags section to my xorg.conf file and changed the driver from vesa to sis but it doesn't work. I end up with a <defunct> X process.

Here's the section of my Xorg.0.log file.

Code:
(II) LoadModule: "sis"

(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//sis_drv.so
(II) Module sis: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
        compiled for 1.4.2, module version = 0.9.4
        Module class: X.Org Video Driver
        ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 2.0
(WW) module ABI major version (2) doesn't match the server's version (4)
(II) SIS: driver for SiS chipsets: SIS5597/5598, SIS530/620,
        SIS6326/AGP/DVD, SIS300/305, SIS630/730, SIS540, SIS315, SIS315H,
        SIS315PRO/E, SIS550, SIS650/M650/651/740, SIS330(Xabre),
        SIS660/[M]661[F|M]X/[M]670/[M]741[GX]/[M]760[GX]/[M]761[GX]/[M]770[GX],
        SIS340
(II) SIS: driver for XGI chipsets: Volari Z7 (XG20),
        Volari V3XT/V5/V8/Duo (XG40)
(II) Primary Device is: PCI 01@00:00:0
(WW) Falling back to old probe method for sis

My xorg.conf file looks like this.
Code:
Section "ServerFlags"
        Option "IgnoreABI" "True"
EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "X.org Configured"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
EndSection

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Card0"
        Driver      "sis"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier  "Monitor0"
        HorizSync   30.0 - 65.0
        VertRefresh 50.0 - 75.0
EndSection

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Card0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth 16
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     16
         Modes "800x600"
        EndSubSection
EndSection
