It is a good day today, I go to buy my new motherboard a beautiful ASUS A7N8X with the marvellous chipset NFORCE2 (without video).
I have always my Geforce 3 TI 500 ( Hercules )

Now, finish KT333.

With a big smile after mounting my Pc,
I insert the RETAIL MANDRAKE (with nvidia built in),
flashing screen at reboot : /

I say "so i have some new hardware i need the last NVIDIA driver".

Ok lets goooogogo,
I take my mandrake Download edition, install it and all ok !

I download the nvidia drivers,
switch to /etc/init.d/ ./dm stop

I had same problem with Mandrake 9.1 download. It was my monitor mode lines in XF86config-4. I have a Samsung monitor and for some reason, M9.1 couldn't detect it right. Once I got that straightened out, all is well. I have an Albatron mb with via chipset. Video card is Chaintech 5600FX with AthlonXP 2200.

tsubasa -- if you're sure that you had the nvidia kernel module loaded (if lsmod listed it), then look at your BIOS settings. If you don't have "assign IRQ to VGA" turned on, turn it on and retry.

tsubasa 05-31-03 05:09 PM

yes i see the nvidia modules in lsmod,

Sorry i dont have this option in my new A7N8X asus ->assign irg to vga -> : / .

Talk to Asus then. They're the ones that put your BIOS together, including its setup program. If they put that option in, they'll be able to tell you how to turn it on. If they didn't put it in, then you might as well return that motherboard -- it'll ONLY ever work with Windows anyway -- and buy one that will let you do simple things like that.

But my board assign an irq to my vga card,
at boot start in ressource list i can see irq 11 video controller

Then check your kernel logs, I guess.

Or try using a Mandrake 9 kernel instead (there have been some reports of those working much much better, I believe).
