3D acceleration not working with Nvidia binary drivers

Has anyone got 3D working on Fedora 13 with the Nvidia binary driver? I have a clean install of F13, the Nvidia binary drivers installed from the fusion repositories. The card is an GeForce 9500 GT, the display is 1920x1200.

My grub line has rdblacklist=nouveau

My xorg.conf is

# Xorg configuration created by livna-config-display

Section "Files"
ModulePath "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia"
ModulePath "/usr/lib64/xorg/modules"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
Option "AIGLX" "on"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
EndSection

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Enable"
EndSection

Re: 3D acceleration not working with Nvidia binary drivers

Would you mind posting your xorg.conf file so that I can compare it to mine?

Re: 3D acceleration not working with Nvidia binary drivers

That's curious, I don't see any significant differences in your xorg.conf file, you specify the DPI and the Coolbits option but that shouldn't make any difference, and you have the same RPMs installed. Are there any other steps that you took to get 3D working?

Here is my module list,

No ( I just added rdblacklist=nouveau to grub.conf )

Have you tried adding iommu=soft to grub.conf ? ( only useful for intel chipsets )

Re: 3D acceleration not working with Nvidia binary drivers

Curiouser and curiouser, we have the same configuration. Just to be clear if you try to turn on desktop effects you don't get a message about no 3D acceleration.

My xorg.0.log file isn't showing any problems so my suspicion is that the problem lies with compviz not with the Nvidia driver.

Compiz works fine here. (I seen reports that the desktop-effects package sometimes mis-detects 3D)


Run
Code:
compiz --replace --sm-disable --ignore-desktop-hints ccp --loose-binding
