A problem of a newbie!
I'm a linux newbie and I have a problem....
My distro is an RH9 on an AMD 2000xp and a GF4 TI4200.
I have downloaded the latest nvidia driver but.... I don't know how I can end the xserver running....:confused:
Maybe it could be a very stupid thing...
I tried to start an emergy session but.... nope the installation tells me that the xserver still running...
Please help me to abandon windowz:afro2:
switch to console mode, usually a ctrl+alt+f1 is enough
then kill X process and any graphical login app (like kdm, gdm or xdm if they're in respawn mode).
u can find the right pid to kill with
then just run the installer
hooe it helps
Thanks.. I have tried yesterday with ctrl+alt+F1 and I go to console mode.
But I haven't understood how to kill the x server..... I tried xkill xterm and all of this but the only thing is that he can't recognize the monitor 0 ?????:eek:
Don't worry I'll try untill I win!
Everyone want a window desktop... so why nvidia don't make a window installer?
To kill X, you just have to open a console, (you can be in X and start a shell) login as root, (type su root), and then type in "init 3"
The X server will close. :D
Thank for you reply.... I needed it:D
Just because in a consolle when sent the command killall X my PC freeze!!!
I'm a newbie.... But I want to learn:rolleyes:
You are BIG xtrax
You are BIG xtrax... like you have tell me everyting work fine....:afro2:
Now I have to test it !!!!!
I was happy to resolve your problem. If you have any other questions, then reply again. You can check the X LOCKUP BUG I just posted if you freeze when returning in the console...
I modified the XF86config file like says the readme file of nvidia.......... my xserver crash!!!!
Oh my God:eek:
GOD DAMN **** !!!
You freeze in the boot?
You must change in /etc/X11 the file XF86Config-4
change Driver="nv" by Driver="nvidia"
remove the line Load"VLCore" and Load"dri"
be sure the Load"glx" line is here.
But i'm not scared.....
I'll trie again.. Thanks for help!;)
I'm on the right way!
Thanks to yor help xtrax now the driver work and at the login boot displayed the nvidia logo! marvelous:afro2:
But I don't know why he don't let me activate the 3d hardware acceleration! I'm a loser...?
Do you have a special place to see it or you tested with Tuxracer and it's slow? My tuxracer is fast with the driver...
