need to keep reloading driver
I have the latest driver for the quadro nvs 290 driver for redhat 5.5. When I log off, I don't get back the splash screen, it keeps me at the command line. If I rerun the driver install I get the splash screen back.

Why does this keep happening? Is this a known bug?

Re: need to keep reloading driver
since the main drivers page says that your video card is supported my many driver versions

Linux Display Driver Version 96.43.18 August 4, 2010
Linux Display Driver Version 173.14.27 August 4, 2010
Linux Display Driver Version 256.44 August 2, 2010
can you specify which version do you have ?

also, can you read http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=46678 and generate a good report with the debug info as instructed after the issue appears ?

how many screens do you use? the screen section has 3 yet the monitor section has 4 ( 3 DELLs and one HP )...ummm ?

BTW, in xorg.conf the Option "NoLogo" should be "1" ( so no logo is showed on boot ) or "0" ( which is the default; so that the logo is showed )

Re: need to keep reloading driver
Sorry I have not written in a while, I got put on a more pressing project.

Anyway, our number of screens varies depending on where you happen to be sitting. Some areas have 1 screen, some have 2, and some have 3.

Re: need to keep reloading driver
install the nvidia-current-modaliases if u are using ubuntu.
blacklist the nouveau driver in your blacklist.conf

apt-get remove and install the nvidia-current again..

btw, the above works for ubuntu...
