[SOLVED]strange problem with nvidia-legacy

hi i have a nvidia TNT2 graphics card

after i switched to kernel 2.6.13
it stopped working (ok it couldnt find module)
so i removed nvidia-legacy then install it again
now it's working well with 2.6.13

my problem starts here
after i installed it, worked fine.. till a reboot
after the reboot it stopped working.. so i removed it then installed again. surprising it worked

Re: [SOLVED]strange problem with nvidia-legacy

i had this problem for a while on amd64. Everytime i would reboot it would have problems loading the nvidia kernel module, but the problem just magically disappeared after a while. I think it was because of udev but i don't remember exactly what it was. Sorry

Re: [SOLVED]strange problem with nvidia-legacy

I can confirm same card smame kernel every reboot need to reinstall nvidia-legacy , the problem is that udev doesn't create the nvidia device any more ,but i still didn't managed to find a solution .

Re: [SOLVED]strange problem with nvidia-legacy

i found a solution while searching a forum

#!/bin/sh

major=195

for i in 0 1 2 3; do
        devfile="/dev/nvidia$i"
        rm -f $devfile
        if ! mknod $devfile c $major $i || ! chmod 0666 $devfile; then
                echo "Couldn't create device "$devfile"."
                exit 1
        fi
done

devfile=/dev/nvidiactl
rm -f $devfile
mknod $devfile c $major 255
chmod 0666 $devfile

exit 0

i used this and added it to the rc.local (dont forget to chmod +x this)
it creates symlinks for nvidiactl

Re: [SOLVED]strange problem with nvidia-legacy

fixed nvidia-legacy, please add nvidia module again to rc.conf then it's fine again with -4 package.
