Can you copy a few lines of Xorg.0.log which show where the old kernel is mentioned and post here?

 

sure, here it is:

Can you try switching back to the default theme and icon set and see if it improves? I've had problems with Gnome before when it got updated, and I was using themes or icon sets for older releases of Gnome.

I am just throwing out ideas here.

 

Is there a 2.6.29.3-desktop-1mnb kernel you could use instead of 2.6.29.3-desktop586-1mnb? As I understand things, the 586 version is made to be compatible with a wide range of older hardware and could be giving you a problem.

What about compiling the nVidia drivers from their site? Should it work?

I use the NVidia drivers from their website exclusively, because the drivers from Mandriva are not updated as frequently.

 

Your card is running with AGP 4X, so that is good.

How do i install native nVidia drivers? Are they dependent on X server version?

 

You said previously that you use GeForce4 card too. Do you use it on Mandriva 2009.1 and is working ok?

There are premade for Mandy 2009.1, and they are autoupdated via DKMS every time you upgrade kernel, but you can also use the binary from nvidia. The procedure there is standard:

1. Download the binary and make it executable ( chmod +x blah )

2. Install kernel headers for your running kernel

3. Go to runlevel 3, login as root, and run the nvidia binary. You will have to answer just a couple of easy questions.

The driver is rather kernel-depandent, and less x-server dependent. Using Mandy 9001.1 there are good chances you will still use either the "nv" or "vesa" driver even after installing the proprietary driver, because there is no xorg.conf file. You can easily remedy that by running as root

# nvidia-xconfig

or maybe

# nvidia-xconfig --composite

 

(the second one also enables native compositing via aiglx)

and then, restart the xserver.

I installed the latest 96.43.11 driver from their site, it was easy but didn't change a thing. Then I decided to install earlier version (96.43.05) also downloaded from their site but this time installer told me that i have no suitable kernel sources. Weird...

 

So, for now i have excellent 3D and no(?) 2D acceleration.

I use Mandriva 2008.1

 

Then I decided to install earlier version (96.43.05) also downloaded from their site but this time installer told me that i have no suitable kernel sources. Weird...

 

I have seen that kind of problem as well when trying older versions of their drivers.

 

So, for now i have excellent 3D and no(?) 2D acceleration.

 

I don't have any other suggestions I can offer. I wish I did.

Ooops, sorry- I saw it late:

 

Build Operating System: Linux_2.6.27.19-server-1mnb Mandriva

 

The "server" kernel will not work with the proprietary nvidia driver. You need either e "desktop" kernel, or a patch for the server kernel (although I have no idea how that patch could probably be... sorry).
