GeForce3 Ti 500 not working with 4363
 
1 Attachment(s)
I've already been working with driver version 2960 and some other older without any problem, but I liked to update to the last version.

When a try to run X Window, all I get is a blank screen, and my system completely freezes (I've made tests to verify it), the only thing I can do is to press the reset button.

In this situation, it's very difficult (probabillistically talking) to get a quite complete log file.

Here is some info about my system:
Video card: GeForce3 Ti 500
Driver version: 4363
Distribution: SuSE Linux 8.0 (i386)
Video bios revision: 03.20.00.20
Processor: AMD Athlon @ 1 GHz
Motherboard: ASUS A7V (KT133)
RAM: 1 GB
Kernel version: 2.4.20 with 4 GB support

we still want the log file, even if it's not complete

how long have you left your system sit before resetting it? many of us have been having the problem of newer drivers causing X to take an extremely long time to start up(some up to 3 minutes) during which the system can appear to be locked up. id suggest letting it sit for a few minutes and see if X eventually starts...if it does, start posting regularly in the thread http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...=&threadid=416

im trying to get a response from nvidia regarding this problem. so far, despite 80+ posts,neither andy nor anyone else has commented on it.

Hmm... After waiting about 3 minutes and 45 seconds, X Window continues its startup as usual, and everything works fine then.

it has been noted that it might be a firewall issue. or a failure to connect to the internet, that can cause a 60 sec+ slowdown too... maybe X is started before network?

Networking issue?

What? A failure to connect to the Internet? To start X Window? It makes no sense. Why do I need to be connected to the Internet to start X Window? I have a 56 Kb dialup Internet connection, and I won't connect to the Internet before starting X Window.

its just a suggestion, some people have permanent connections...
and try to connect to their X server through the internet first and then through their lo interface...
