[SOLVED] nvidia Error during boot

hi guys,

I've got 4.0 chimera running on an old PC using  legacy nvidia 340 driver.

during boot, screen display nvidia error:

[    1.300473] udevd[118]: Error running install command 'modprobe -i nvidia-legacy-340xx ' for module nvidia: retcode 1
[    1.302943] ACPI Warning: SystemIO range 0x0000000000000828-0x000000000000082F conflicts with OpRegion 0x0000000000000800-0x000000000000084F (\PMRG) (20200925/utaddress-204)
[    1.302957] ACPI: If an ACPI driver is available for this device, you should use it instead of the native driver
[    1.302989] lpc_ich: Resource conflict(s) found affecting gpio_ich

any idea on what this might be and how to fix it?   I installed legacy 340 driver from Ceres repo a while ago since  is not officially supported in chimera.

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia Error during boot

The (1st) error message does nothing on my system, the module is clearly loaded.

$ lsmod | grep nvi

No idea about the following 3 lines. What exactly is the problem?

How was the nouveau kernel driver working on your system? Do you really need the proprietary nvidia driver? Uninstall nvidia can be a solution.

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia Error during boot

yeah, it seems to show Nvidia is being used.  I prefer using nvidia driver since I use this pc for streaming movies online with firefox browser. 
I noticed that the performance has been degrading since i couldn't playback 720p movie in full screen without drag.

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia Error during boot

just to followup on this thread:

by chance, I had this fixed, it had to do with bios and Windows settings - I have a dual-boot with both a SSD (with Devuan) and a HDD (with windows 7) connected via SATA connectors on Mbo. 

1  From BIOS, I changed SATA controller mode from AHCI to IDE, then boot into windows7 to edit registry to enable 'AHCI' mode, reboot into win7 to allow controller driver updates. 
2.  Reboot, return to BIOS to re-enable SATA 'AHCI' mode
3.  Boot into Chimera and the 'ACPI' warning at boot is gone, and I can now playback 720P/1080P streaming video in fullscreen mode without hiccups.

Re: [SOLVED] nvidia Error during boot

how you install nvidia 340 driver on Chimaera?
https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=5553

what relations between  "SATA 'AHCI' mode" and "nvidia-legacy-340xx"?

I temporally changed the devuan repo list to point to 'ceres' to pull in the 340 drivers and configured it, afterwards revert back to chimaera repo.

I have a legacy motherboard with dual win7/devuan boot. and I couldn't boot to windows unless I changed bios to 'IDE',  after installing 'AHCI' drivers for windows in IDE mode and reset bios to 'AHCI', i can boot both OS.  It might be resource conflict thing and I'm not savvy enough to understand it.  if you use newer computer, it probably won't matter.
