2.4.21 / 2.4.22 Nvidia 4496 corrupted display after X logout.
I"m running SuSE Linux with a custom 2.4.21 / 2.4.22 kernel build. I've tried the installer and compiling drivers myself. I get the same result all ways...
After I end my x session and return to text mode, my screen is corrupted and I can't see anything.
Only solution is have is to blindly type:
shutdown -r now
and let it reboot.
I'm running a GeForce4 440 AGP
Video BIOS: 04.17.00.45.00
Kernels 2.4.21 & 2.4.22
GigaByte 845PE667Ultra2 mobo
512 MB DDR ram
SuSE Linux 8.1 pro.
THe same drivers run fine on wife's geforce2 and my son's 5200.
I have the same problem with the corrupted display
Geforce 4 MX440 128 ram AGP
anyone have suggestions other then an older driver?
the 1.0-4363 driver in Nvidia's archive won't cause corruption. It might just be an issue for now.
I just upgraded to SuSE Linux 8.2 Pro and the problem remains...
Wonder why it's fine in the previous version?
Ran the installer upon installation finalization, and got the same results...
3-D is fast in X, but upon logout it's corrupted...
I guess If I ran at graphical login it's fine, but what do ya do the first time ya need a text console?
My son's running the same MoBo as I am, with a 5200 card and it's fine.
Wife's PC is running a GigaByte socket 370 series with a Geforce2 FX with newest drivers, hers is fine too...
The same with me!
No errors during installation.
3D acceleration works fine, but no terminal is visible. :confused:
Everything works fine.
A little system information:
Suse 8.2 (FTP installation)
standard kernel 2.4.20, updated via Yast Online Update
Celeron 1000 FCPGA2 running on modified Socket370-Adapter
ASUS V3800 Deluxe (Riva TNT2 AGP Board, 32MB)
I can live with the 'old' driver, but it would be nice to benefit of the latest features/fixes.
I hope, anybody will reply.
Thanks in advance,
Maybe, I found the solution for this strange behaviour:
I am also having this problem with the following setup: -
GeForce 440 Go
It's nothing to do with TV out...
I hope nVidia fix this in the next release - it's driving me mad!
And BTW the nvidia installer did NOT install the nvigia gl headers into /usr/include/GL on three tested systems! I've had to manually copy them into place, and recompile wine... just a heads up!
What could help is to change the handling of the textmode screen from that FB stuff that SuSE is using into a normal text console.
I think there is an option for this somewhere.
I am running SuSE 8.2 myself, but I recompiled the kernel (for another reason) and while doing that I removed the FB support.
It then boots up with a standard dull 80x24 text screen instead of the nice graphic screen with SuSE logo, but I don't care.
I did this after reading about difficulties switching between X and textmode screens.
At first it worked fine, but after I had configured my card to use 2 X screens (CRT and TV) the trouble returned. Now, when I switch to textmode, that is output on the TV. The CRT has text but it is not updated when I type.
Well, why would one want to exit X?
Use graphical login, and shutdown from the login screen.
FrameBuffer and Exiting X
I had some suspicions about that... I've tried it with vga=792 vga=exteneded, and no vga kernel parameter... same result and this is a custom 2.4.22 kernel build...
And to answer your question about exiting x:
I do a lot of work in a text console... both remote and local... liek forexample when compiling something large I'll use vc2 [ctrl+alt+f2] to compile and then switch back to x with alt+f7
Sometimes I won't be in x for days...
There is another post about this. Perhaps it can help you.
