Stuck at loading kernel modules (automatic)

Post by patrickrea » Tue Feb 16, 2010 8:03 pm

I have an iGoLogic motherboard VGA that works perfectly when I use the built in VGA. However I need a TV output so I dropped in an Nvidia 6200 PCI card. Now I hang at "loading kernel modules (automatic)". I have tried using no X driver, MM_X_DRIVER='nv' and MM_X_DRIVER='nvidia'. I can't telnet in, but I can ping the box and it responds.

I have tried both ram-minimyth-0.21.0-72-nvidia.96.43.13 and ram-minimyth-0.21.0-72-nvidia.173.14.20

Any ideas? Here is my minimyth.conf

Re: Stuck at loading kernel modules (automatic)

Post by patrickrea » Wed Feb 17, 2010 7:51 pm

Updated info. I have disabled everything on the MB with the exception of USB. No serial, parallel, IDE or floppy. Set the log level to 5 in my pxe config file. On screen I receive the following messages at the very end

Code: Select all

nvidia: module licence 'NVIDIA' taints the kernel
diabling lock debugging due to kernel taint
NVRAM: loading NVIDIA UNIX x86 KERNEL module 173.14.20 
NVRAM: CPU does not support the PAT, falling back to MTRRs.
lirc_mceusb[2]: Philips eHome Infrared Transceiver on usb1:2
At this point the system hangs. I can ping the box but that's it.

Any ideas?

More info. Here's the output of "lspci -mn" while running under MythDora using the Nvidia 6200 PCI card for TV output. I had to switch back to MythDora to keep the Real Estate Manager (aka the wife) happy. Seems she is addicted to TV without commercials. She just wishes the sound of the drive would go away.

Hope it helps figure this out.

Code: Select all

If you unplug everything from the USB (e.g. the remote control receiver), then what happens?

What nvidia driver version is MythDora using?
MiniMyth running on an Acer ApireRevo 3610 and a Zotac ZBOX-ID80-U. Find out more at my MythTV page.

Hi Pablo.

With USB both disabled and enabled but everything disconnected, I get the same result at the same place.

MythDora seems to be using a pre 180 driver which I guess would probably make the 173 driver.

I'm stumped.

Thanks.
