Thanks for the offer John.  I'm curious what you get when you run the command "glxinfo".  

I did manage to get xwindows going with "vxconf".  Oddly, though, the lower menu bar no longer appears (the one that looks like a pseudo osx type of thing).  Also, when I ran vxconf, I just chose the first option ("auto") with no xorg.conf being set up.  When I went to check whether I had direct rendering going or not, via "glxinfo", I was told the following:

Code:
vector:/~
mark:$ glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig

So, I'm not sure.  I did not reinstall the proprietary xvidia driver that I had previously been trying to install (again, instead I used vxconf).  I'm going to try extremetuxracer to see.

Code:
mark:$ etracer

Well, things still aren't right, but I'm getting closer.  I'll try once again to install the proprietary driver for nvidia.

ETA:  Well, still couldn't install the nvidia driver.  It stated,

Quote
The kernel header file '/lib/modules/3.10.10/build/include/linux/version.h' does not exist.  The most likely reason for this is that the kernel source files in '/lib/modules/3.10.10/build' have not been configured.

Well, I've given up, and gone back to 3.0.8.  Of course, now php isn't working for me.  I must remember not to venture into testing or untested in the future.

Congratulations sledgehammer.

For mine, it worked, but I cannot get the nvidia driver installed.  I got the following feedback:

Quote
ERROR:  Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.ko'.  This happens most frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong or improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of gcc that differs from the one used to build the target kernel, or if a driver such as rivafb, nvidiafb, or nouveau is present and presents the NVIDIA kernel module from obtaining ownership of the NVIDIA graphics device(s).

I have gcc-4.5.2-i486-2 installed, and kernel-stripped-src-3.10.10-x86-1vl70.

you need kernel-src-3.10.10-x86_64-1vl70.txz  for installing nvidia driver.,

http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.0/x86_64/kernel-src-3.10.10-x86_64-1vl70.txz


pls download, install again.

Mark,

Install the kernel-src package before running the nvidia installer. We will try to have all the drivers covered asap.

Thanks for getting back to me, vincent2 and rbistolfi.  I don't have a 64-bit machine.  It's a regular 32-bit (x86) machine.  I did install all the packages listed in this message first before using maintenance mode within 3.10.10 to install the nvidia driver, but to no avail.  It just wouldn't work.  Works fine in 3.0.8, however.

Rodrigo,

In addition to the wired network, my sound, both onboard and usb headphones, doesn't work.

Also, I did not install your package:  http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/pkg/untested/veclinux-7.0/x86/kernel-src-3.10.10-x86-1vl70.txz

Thanks for any further suggestions.

then u must install  32 bit kernel source:    kernel-src-3.10.10-x86-1vl70.txz,

Mark,

I get a tremendous amount of stuff when I run glxinfo.

It begins with, among other things:

Quote
vector:/~
johwhi:$ glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
display: :0  screen: 0
direct rendering: Yes
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.4
server glx extensions:
    GLX_ARB_multisample, GLX_EXT_import_context, GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap,
    GLX_EXT_visual_info, GLX_EXT_visual_rating, GLX_MESA_copy_sub_buffer,
    GLX_OML_swap_method, GLX_SGI_make_current_read, GLX_SGI_swap_control,
    GLX_SGIS_multisample, GLX_SGIX_fbconfig, GLX_SGIX_pbuffer,
    GLX_SGIX_visual_select_group, GLX_INTEL_swap_event
client glx vendor string: Mesa Project and SGI
client glx version string: 1.4
...

I didn't copy it all.  If there's something specific in it that you need, let me know.

then install nvdia driver again

I did install that package, along with the kernel and modules package.  I tried several times.  Despite this, I couldn't get the nvidia driver to work.

sledgehammer, thanks for looking into the glxinfo for me.  I was just curious if you had a similar issue to what I was having.

You could try installing the legacy driver.

http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux-display-ia32-96.43.23-driver.html

If that was your post in LQ. You should not need to downgrade xorg.

John,

For audio try:

Code:
$ modprobe snd_hda_intel
$ modprobe snd_usb_audio

I will check your Ethernet card.

Hi bigpaws.  Yes, that is the driver for my card that I was using.  It won't install on the new kernel.

I think we will have to find an older kernel for you, one that includes the ptrace settings and that works with your nvidia card.

EDIT: Looks like it was merged in 3.5

Okay, I'll try 3.5.5 from the repository and see.
