  1. I wanted to experience even more power and learn more about linux. So, (after some advice from a friend) i decided to try Linux Gentoo (AMD64). So i printed the gentoo handbook (the whole thing 0.o) from gentoo.org and burned a livecd. I followed the instruction in the handbook, I manually configured the kernel. Then i went to compile. (using make) I get a compiling error. Something like this: "internal compiler error: segmentation fault". I think thats it, i couldn't copy and paste The odd thing is, when i repeated this a few times the error will occur in different places. But it always fail, Different places each time. Almost at random? This is the first time i have tried to install a linux distro this complex. And the first time i have compiled the kernel. So, im really lost. Thanks :-) </Dream.In.Code>
  2. I like F8, i found that it mounted my windows partition without me having to do anything! since i am trying to program from linux now thats a good thing! just can't get comp up and running but thats just a slight problem, So final word...Fedora 8 is teh r0xx0r5!!!!
  3. i installed boht the livna and the drivers from nvidia.com....at the same time. so....
  4. hmm... i copied everything into the section "device" restarded and it failed i tried to reinstall the nvidia drivers because i thought that maybe the drivers didn't install right..that didn't help. so i am lost this is my current corg.conf: # nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig # nvidia-xconfig: version 1.0 (buildmeister@builder3) Wed Sep 12 14:29:35 PDT 2007 # Xorg configuration created by livna-config-display Section "ServerLayout" Identifier "Default Layout" Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0 InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer" InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard" EndSection Section "Files" ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules" EndSection Section "Module" Load "glx" EndSection Section "ServerFlags" Option "AIGLX" "on" EndSection Section "InputDevice" # generated from default Identifier "Mouse0" Driver "mouse" Option "Protocol" "auto" Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice" Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no" Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" EndSection Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Keyboard0" Driver "kbd" Option "XkbModel" "pc105" Option "XkbLayout" "us+inet" EndSection Section "Monitor" Identifier "Monitor0" VendorName "Unknown" ModelName "Unknown" HorizSync 30.0 - 110.0 VertRefresh 50.0 - 150.0 Option "DPMS" EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "Videocard0" Driver "nvidia" EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "Screen0" Device "Videocard0" Monitor "Monitor0" DefaultDepth 24 Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" "true" Option "Composite" "Enable" Option "TripleBuffer" "true" Option "RenderAccel" "true" SubSection "Display" Viewport 0 0 Depth 24 EndSubSection EndSection Section "Extensions" Option "Composite" "Enable" EndSection
  5. it worked! i changed nvidia to nv, alot of stuff in the section wasn't there so i am going to re-write it again if it goes wrong now i know 2 ways to fix it!!!! THANKS!!!
  6. damn! it didn't work...it should have!!! is there a way to edit the xorg.conf from inside the bash command console?
  7. i edited my xorg and added Identifier "Videocard0" Driver "nv" Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" "true" Option "Composite" "Enable" Option "TripleBuffer" "true" Option "RenderAccel" "true" to Section "Device" restarted xserver and...xserver won't start..? i have a copy of my original xorg.conf on my desktop whats the command (in bash) to replace one file with another? like replace /etc/X11/xorg.conf WITH /home/Delta/Desktop/xorg.conf ? thanks
  8. When starting compiz with the console i get this: [Delta@localhost ~]$ fusion-icon * Detected Session: gnome * Searching for installed applications... * NVIDIA on Xorg detected, exporting: __GL_YIELD=NOTHING * Using the GTK Interface * Interface not installed ... Trying another interface * Using the Qt4 Interface * Interface not installed ... Trying another interface * Using the Qt3 Interface * Interface not installed *** Error: All interfaces failed, aborting! [Delta@localhost ~]$ i installed gtk (i think ) and now i get this: [Delta@localhost ~]$ fusion-icon * Detected Session: gnome * Searching for installed applications... * No GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap with direct rendering context ... nor with indirect rendering, this isn't going to work! Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/fusion-icon", line 57, in <module> from FusionIcon.interface import choose_interface File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/FusionIcon/interface.py", line 23, in <module> import start File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/FusionIcon/start.py", line 64, in <module> env.set() File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/FusionIcon/environment.py", line 140, in set if not self.Xgl and self.glx_vendor == 'NVIDIA Corporation': AttributeError: Environment instance has no attribute 'glx_vendor' [Delta@localhost ~]$ so....i have no idea what any of that means..
  9. after i posted this i tried to make sure everything was right. I checked desktop effects and it was disabled? i tried to enable but i could't!?!? it was working yesterday...?
  10. I think i already posted this but i can't find it? so here it is again. Ok so i get fedora 8, install the kmod-nvidia drivers from livna and the installed drivers from nvidias site. After that i installed Compiz and enabled desktop effects..... but when i try to start compiz nothing happens...wtf? i get no errors and nothing saying it crashed it just doesn't start. Also i noticed that the nvidia splash doesn't flash on xserver start...but the drivers where installed. this is my xorg.conf: # Xorg configuration created by livna-config-display Section "ServerLayout" Identifier "Default Layout" Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0 InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer" InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard" Option "AIGLX" "true" EndSection Section "Files" ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules" EndSection Section "Module" Load "glx" Load "dbe" Load "extmod" EndSection Section "ServerFlags" Option "AIGLX" "on" EndSection Section "InputDevice" # generated from default Identifier "Mouse0" Driver "mouse" Option "Protocol" "auto" Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice" Option "Emulate3Buttons" "no" Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5" EndSection Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Keyboard0" Driver "kbd" Option "XkbModel" "pc105" Option "XkbLayout" "us+inet" EndSection Section "Monitor" Identifier "Monitor0" VendorName "Unknown" ModelName "Unknown" HorizSync 30.0 - 110.0 VertRefresh 50.0 - 150.0 Option "DPMS" EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "Videocard0" Driver "nv" Option "XAANoOffscreenPixmaps" "true" Option "Composite" "Enable" Option "TripleBuffer" "true" Option "RenderAccel" "true" EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "Screen0" Device "Videocard0" Monitor "Monitor0" DefaultDepth 24 SubSection "Display" Viewport 0 0 Depth 24 Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "true" EndSubSection EndSection Section "Extensions" Option "Composite" "Enable" EndSection thanks guys
