Subject: Re: enabling CONFIG_SYSVIPC in the kernel for nvidia and others.
Date: Wed, 15 Dec 2010 16:12:56 +0100
I think that SYSVIPC should be enabled by everyone. Inter Process Communication in style of SystemV is good thing. My apps are using it so no one knows if it&#39;s not needed in n-number of developers. Also I like Shared Memory, Pipes, FIFO etc. This should be enabled in kernel by default.<br>

&gt; Hi,<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; I ran into a problem yesterday and now that it is fixed, I wanted to<br>
&gt; mention it here to see if you think the docs need to mention this.  This<br>
&gt; is a brief version.  I built a new system that has a Nvidia card and a<br>
&gt; LG monitor.  I could not get the GUI to work and the nvidia drivers to<br>
&gt; load properly.  This is the relevant error:<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; (EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not<br>
&gt; found)<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; The problem turned out to be that CONFIG_SYSVIPC was missing in the<br>
&gt; kernel.  This is not just used by nvidia but it appears that at least in<br>
&gt; some cases nvidia needs that in the kernel.  This is not mentioned on<br>
&gt; the nvidia driver docs page.  I think it should be mentioned but it may<br>
&gt; also be needed somewhere else and someone may want to test if ATI needs<br>
&gt; the same option.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; I&#39;ll leave it up to the experts to decide where this should be.  If it<br>
&gt; turns out that ATI needs this too, maybe it should be in the xorg<br>
&gt; configure section to cover both Nvidia and ATI.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; Let me know if you need more info.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; Thanks<br>

</div></div>Hi dale,<br>
<br>
if it isn&#39;t properly checked during emerge, you should file a bug for<br>
that. There is a eclass which can check during build whether needed<br>
flags are enabled or not.<br>
<br>
Cheers justin<br>
