Anyone else having trouble with newest nVidia driver and 32-bit apps?

Just installed the latests nvidia driver available through yum, and I stumbled into a prominent problem. 32-bit applications running OpenGL directly get a segmentation fault. Of this group are: Doom 3, Quake 3, RTCW, UT'99 with the OpenGL render device (see ahead), Penumbra Overture, Cold War. SDL games such as Quake 4, Neverwinter Nights, UT'99 with the SDLGL renderer, Quake 2 with SDLGL renderer, etc, all run fine. Also 64-bit native GLX/SDL games such as Nexuiz, UT2004, Neverball, Glest, etc, all run fine.

Anyone else noticed this on 64-bit Fedora with latest nVidia drivers?

According to Nvidia's site, my card isn't yet pulled from the main driver into Legacy (FX 5900), so I should be fine, and that shouldn't be the matter. Not only that, but also for many of the 32-bit games, a number of extensions seem to be missing (GL_ARB_vertex_buffer_object, GL_NV_register_combiners, and many others), maybe there is a problem with the 32-bit libGL.so.100.14.19 included in the driver? Can anyone confirm?

Edit

Anyone know off which pkg# are the livna drivers based on? Just saw there are pkg0,1,2 pkg0 and 1 are significantly smaller than pkg2 (more precompiled modules, maybe?)

Of course, how else could I run any 32-bit games previously? It updated to the new ones...

At any rate, I have installed the vanilla driver straight from nVidia's site and all is OK, so it would seem there is something wrong with the Livna package.

Weird, ut2004 32-bit works for me:
Code:
[drz@drz ~]$ rpm -qa |grep nvidia
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-100.14.19-1.lvn7.x86_64
kmod-nvidia-100.14.11-1.2.6.22.4_65.fc7.x86_64
xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs-32bit-100.14.19-1.lvn7.x86_64
kmod-nvidia-100.14.19-1.2.6.22.5_76.fc7.x86_64
[drz@drz ~]$ uname -r
2.6.22.5-76.fc7

UT200* uses SDL , by the way, could you post the openal.so of your UT2004 as an attachment, mine in 32-bit doesn't have have sound, and I want to test something. I think there's a performance difference (noticeable) between 32 and 64-bit UT2K4, being the 32-bit one faster, but as my UT2K4 has the 64-bits openal.so, it doesn't have sound.

Edit

I have the sources for openal (installed with UT2K4), but I don't know how to build the i386 library on x86_64.

I noticed a problem using avidemux using either Xvideo accel or SDL accel. For the video, all I would get are green lines across the screen. If I switched to GTK (no accel) then the video file would play correctly. I also got pink lines across MythTV too. After reverting to 100.14.11 and a reboot, everything worked as expected. I haven't tried any games yet. BTW, I have used the nvidia .run file to install the nvidia drivers and have compiled MythTV and avidemux from source.

I have not heard anything about XVideo problems, maybe worth checking over at nvnews.net.

Code:
$ ls -gG .ut2004/System/*.so*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 24 2007-08-28 16:14 .ut2004/System/libSDL-1.2.so.0 -> /usr/lib/libSDL-1.2.so.0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 26 2007-08-28 16:14 .ut2004/System/libSDL-1.2.so.0.64 -> /usr/lib64/libSDL-1.2.so.0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 23 2007-08-28 16:14 .ut2004/System/openal.so -> /usr/lib/libopenal.so.0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 25 2007-08-28 16:14 .ut2004/System/openal.so.64 -> /usr/lib64/libopenal.so.0
I never did get the ut2004 supplied SDL and openal libraries to work right, and this works fine.

The first clue being it wouldn't install until you removed the previous one.

Don't get me wrong though, I love what Firewing has done since he started maintaining theses packages.
Really made things idiot-proof

This is the first time I've had any problems so I just skipped it.
I'll just skip it until it installs normally.

Hello Thetargos:
To the best of my limited knowledge these are the packages which are used. [I'm sure Firewing1 could confirm it for you if need be]
ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/100.14.19/
ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li..._64/100.14.19/

Thetargos, there is a thread at NVNews.net about corrupt video using 100.14.19 and using xv video acceleration. The attached mplayer screenshot looks similar to what I was experiencing. Looks like NVidia is aware of the issue and has opened a bug report.

Now that's interesting, thanks for the heads up! Will have to test this out myself, I'm not sure if it is local to mplayer or if other players do show similar symptoms, hence being attributable to XVideo corruption, though I'm affraid it will be due to XVideo, I'll test regardless.

Ok, I can confirm that on my setup at least, the latest driver installed with the nVidia installer, I was unable to reproduce the issue you've seen in mplayer, now, I tested with mplayer-plugin, maybe this is an issue in NV40+ class hardware? I've only got an FX5900.

I have been using 100.14.19 since nvidia released it with no issues in F7 and F8 test 2 with no sign of any corruption .
