Driver "nv" ==> nvidia

Sharker 09-13-03 02:34 PM

Have you tried to leave only one "Display" sub-section under the "Screen" ?

dave77 09-13-03 03:05 PM

thx for your suggestion, i uncomment (#) them and get the same errormessage! :(

maybe i need to compile the files new ?!? i have read a post doing it with mkprecompile... , but i dont have that exec. can someone tell where i can get it or which package contains it?


kauko 09-14-03 07:52 AM

I have a similar problem with MDK 9.1 & GeForce 2 MX200, x crashes with 'no screen found with usable configuration' on normal bootup.
If I boot into 'Failsafe -> Graphic & Network' then x starts up like it should ! I would prefer to bootup the normal way , but until someone can help I'm stuck with Failsafe. Would this work for you ?

dave77 09-14-03 10:42 AM

Yes, it works!!
YES!!! :eek:
during severel experiments i wanted to compile the exist kernel and think of having seen there was problem with the agpgart module! i am not sure! now i have downloaded new kernelsources and trieing my luck with them! thx for the tip!! Now mine kde is incredibly faster than before! try to solve the problem. hard time for a noob!
