nvidia incomatible with Mandrake?
 
I recently installed the nvidia drivers under mandrake with only a black screen as a result and I have seen lots of mandrake users having the exact same problem. Is there som sort of incompability betweem the nvidia drivers and mandrake?

i have seen a thread somewhere (sorry, can't remember the link), where people have had problems with the framebuffer device and the video card bios.

If you're running 9.1, i would strongly suggest that it is their kernel that is hosing things up. I installed a new ti 4600, and tried to boot to my old 9.0 and got nothing but kernel panics, and blackness.

Anyway, I'm on gentoo now, and it runs (so far), like a champion. Have not yet been able to do X (it's still compiling).

You could try this, at a mandrake boot prompt:

vga=normal

perhaps that might help

Peace
