I just installed the 96.43.05 nvidia driver and have not been successful in using it with xorg72.uci. It works with XFree86.dsl.
Here's what I get in Xorg.0.log when trying to use it:
|(II) LoadModule: "pcidata"|
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module pcidata
(II) UnloadModule: "pcidata"
(EE) Failed to load module "pcidata" (module does not exist, 0)
Fatal server error:
Unable to load required base modules, Exiting...
(WW) xf86CloseConsole: KDSETMODE failed: Bad file descriptor
(WW) xf86CloseConsole: VT_GETMODE failed: Bad file descriptor
If I try to use the driver without either manually loading it or including it in the modules directory, X just can't find it. I think that may be just beacuse it tries to use modprobe instead of insmod.
Any thoughts on this? Did I miss something, or is pcidata something that should be included in Xorg? There is a libpcidata.a file included with XFree86.dsl. In xorg72.uci there is libpcidata.so. Do I need to adjust a variable or something?
Xorg.0.log also said
so maybe this is what needs to be looked at. Maybe i just need to add a module path to xorg.conf
