I could only get some garbled output compared to the nv driver.

What kind of card do you have (chipset)? Could you upload somewhere
your Xorg.0.log? Is nouveau kernel module loaded?

I have a NV5M64 [RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro] (rev 15)

The program generated some rpms for libdrm for the git build which updated normally with rpm -Fvh.

I could not get a fully successful results and there is no nouveau modules. The build fails on Compiling sources
With the last several lines below:

It would be nice if you could contact directly with developers of
nouveau (#nouveau on irc.freenode.net). I'm only a dumb packager who
wants to make testing a bit easier.

I'll consider contacting the developers with problems that I encounter if attempting further installation of a 3D nvidia card OSS driver. Thanks personally for trying to get this launched into a reality, hopefully in the not too far from future. I gave away one nvidia AGP card and another nvidia card was tossed back at a later date.

I changed nv to nouveau in the config file.

Actually, this should be done automatically after reboot. I used
scripts from xorg-x11-drv-nvidia package from rpm.livna.org ;-)

It probably would have automatically changed the entry in the xorg.conf if the build process ever got that far through.

I could not find the other programs as described on the webpage referenced.

Which programs do you mean?

nouveau service will disable nouveau driver if kernel module is not present (this is similar to nVidia driver from rpm.livna.org repo). You can alway turn it on/off manually by executing following command:

nouveau-config-display enable


nouveau-config-display disable



  Honk if you are against noise pollution!
