Bug: VPCS13V9E - black VTs once X is started
 
1 Attachment(s)
Virtual terminal sessions (Alt+Fx) properly work as long as X was not started. However, as soon as X starts, every VT screen goes black. Their display can only be restored by rebooting the computer.

Sometimes, randomly, the VT displays are not black, but instead present a couple of large vertical flickering bands of verious shades of grey.

Computer is a VPCS13V9E Sony laptop running Debian/unstable. NVIDIA drivers version is 260.19.36.

Anybody got ideas on how I could solve this? Thanks in advance!

Nobody has ever encountered that issue or got any idea on what I could try?

New report with drivers version 270.26 attached. Still no progress on the issue. I admit I'm a little disappointed by the lack of support from the nvidia people...

HaloO,

I have recently attached a new monitor to my old Ubuntu Hardy Heron box.
This is with good old nvidia driver 169.12! I had the same problem and solved
it with the kernel option nomodeset.

I hope that helps, TSa.

A good idea, thanks. Unfortunately, nomodeset changed nothing to the outcome.
