[SOLVED] NVIDIA with VDPAU on Corepure 5.x
« on: April 29, 2014, 01:49:01 PM »
Hi all,

With your help I was able to get this same hardware working with VDPAU on Core 4.x last year ((http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,14791.msg84953.html#msg84953).  However after reading a ton of forums/wikis and unsuccessfully trying several options, I am unsure of what to even keep pursuing.

I am totally willing to do all the work and compile whatever is needed, I just need some direction on what the TinyCore gurus would pursue so I don't spend many more hours running down the wrong trail!

Any recommendations?
  • Compile xf86-video-nv? (I get a missing package 'dri' error.  But I'm not even sure this will work for hardware accel, and NVidia stopped supporting it?)
     
  • Compile NVIDIA proprietary drivers? (Tried NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-331.67.run and NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.121.run, both give me a "./nvidia-installer: not found" error despite the fact that if I run them with the "-x" flag there is a file named nvidia-installer in the extracted directory.)
     
  • Would nvidia-glx work with Xorg-7.7?  Should I try and compile it?

I am hoping that I am just missing something obvious!

I've compiled nvidia x86 and x86_64 proprietary drivers v319.49 with VDPAU support for VC1, MPEG1+2, H264.  With OpenGL/GFX v1.4

Only thing, is best if you setup an Xorg config file first then install nvidia drivers.

I use Xorg-7.7-3d

Sorry, I've been procrastinating on this for some time.  Give me a few days and ill prep an extension for you to test

With all my Nvidia installations I've had to first create an Xorg.conf file.   Only after the system is working properly with an Xorg.conf file can I install the Nvidia drivers

Finally have the Nvidia x86_64 driver for corepure64 complete with GLX, VDPAU  modules and Direct hardware rendering, perfect for full screen 3d applications.

VDPAU info


GLX info


and of course 64bit 3d gaming


getting ready to submit, but if anyone can't wait, pm me

While the Nvidia driver is working flawlessly and providing direct rendering, the OpenGL doesn't appear to be configured correctly at least on my system..

Everything that I have tested is working perfectly! (Even without generating an xorg.conf file.)

I compiled mplayer with VDPAU support after installing the tczs and it is playing full 1080p high-bitrate video excellently.

Thanks so much for all your work on this, coreplayer2!
