I’m running Gentoo on an amd64 system, and want to run my GT520 card with nvidia drivers.
Kernel version is 3.6.8 vanilla sources, with the following configuration: http://bpaste.net/show/61869/
xorg version is 1.13.0
Building the nvidia kernel module works fine, but when i start X, after validating the metamodes, it fails with “(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize DMA.”
I can’t find anything about this error on google, i tried dozens of diffrent kernel configurations and versions.
I even downgraded to nvidia driver version 304.64, but this version only freezes, showing a black screen but no error message.
Here’s a log of Xorg failing to start: http://bpaste.net/show/61870/
Edit: I can’t attach the bugreport-log, as is’t not a picture(?!), i uploaded it: http://btbn.de/files/nvidia-bug-report.log.gz
