My computer frozen a few time after I start renouveau...
I'm on Edgy Eft, with the nvidia-glx package, from Canonical, and I have a GeForce GO 7600...
By the way, it's not the first time it happened ( but I tried 3 times renouveau, it froze the 3 times ) : a few times, it occured when playing.
Nouveau have a new renouveau script out, it automatically packs up the results.
I installed the official Nvidia drivers on the Dapper Drake live cd using Envy envy_0.8.2-0ubuntu1_all.deb. Then I installed renouveau (it needed this: sudo apt-get install build-essential cvs mesa-common-dev libsdl1.2-dev libxvmc-dev nvidia-glx-dev )
I have a Riva TNT2 that came with my computer but I can't find it now--maybe some posters reading this post can help in that case. It seems like they really need TNT2, NV1, 2 cards, among some others, for dumps- but I just did my Geforce Ti 4200.
I used it on a multi-monitor system with Twinview however--does anyone think that affected the results negatively? And what's this about needing kernel, SLI, and Mmio traces (from the Nouveau Companion #16)? Is it easy to help out with?
Refer to our status page http://users.tkk.fi/~jpakkane/ren/ for renouveau dumps. Only dumps for cards listed in red are currently needed. We would be interested in SLI dumps though (and please set the Topic line of your email to hint at the fact that this is an SLI dump). G80 owner willing to test patches would be very welcome too.
Still MmioTrace dumps would be very welcome.

I use the official drivers from NVIDIA's website. How do I build this if I can't install the nvidia-glx-dev package(since that installs nvidia-glx)?
Nouveau needs ALL NEW DUMPS again, I just saw this on Digg:
So if you've dumped your card already...do it again with the new script
Nouveau : Open Source 3D needs you! 95.1% Of all Dumps are needed!
Digg helped the Nouveau project get new dumps over a month ago. Now out of 245 nvidia cards, 112 cards are missing and 121 are old dumps. If you have an nvidia card and linux please help.Megatog: I don't know how you would do that...hmm..anyone else? I guess people with the new 9xxx nVidia drivers that only support their newer cards would be messed up too because nvidia-glx-dev depends on nvidia-glx instead of that AND nvidia-glx-new...Originally Posted by diggapleaze

How(where) were the files in nvidia-glx-dev acquired?
Megatron, it seems that the package nvidia-dev-new was added to Feisty repositories. You should be able to use renouveau, now.
I use the official installer from the nvidia website...
i would love to dump my core but i had to disable the nvidia driver cause it freezes my pc i haven't gotten a solution 4 it yet. i use an nvidia mx 400
