FreeBSD black tty
 
Hi,
I'm using the 256.35 driver with my GeForce 9400 GT on my FreeBSD 8.1-RC1 amd64 and when I start X I can't access my tty anymore (my display will just close and stay black until I go back to my working x (using ctrl + alt +F9)

If i close X it doesn't work either and if I don't start it I can see my tty correctly

I was wondering if it was a known bug or if there was any work around or what is wrong


Thank you very much

Hinata

Reported long time ago and finally fixed with 256.52

I'm getting this problem in NVIDIA-FreeBSD-x86_64-256.53

I upgraded directly from a much older (195.xx) version, so I'm not sure if this is a regression from 256.52 or not. I'll try installing that version in a bit and see if it helps.

EDIT: I just installed 256.52 and have the same issue. Switching to another VT after X is started results in a blank screen and the monitors going into powersave.
