Just another black screen thread....
After reading many threads about nvidia-driver-probs and possible fixes, i'm still stuck in the black screen problem. I'm using Suse and tried different environments with the same result...
Suse 8.2 vs Suse 9.0
BX-Chipset vs. Via KT133A-Chipset
Celeron 450 vs. XP1800+
TNT2 vs. Geforce3 Ti200
smp4G-Kernel vs. athlon-Kernel
4496-Driver vs. 5328-Driver
My first "successful" encounter was yesterday, when I bootet to "Init 3 , vga=normal apm=off acpi=off noapic". After Installing the 5328-driver on my XP1800+, with Suse8.2 & Geforce3,
i used "switch2nvidia" and started X rightaway without using Sax2 -> "black screen with blue flickers" as usual, but after about 5 minutes of waiting: a running desktop without 3D-acceleration...
init 5 leads to a "stable" system with blackscreen (I waited about 1hour).
What am i doing wrong???
Is it my hardware?
Thx for replies...
You are not alone with trouble between the 5328s and Via chipsets. They don't go for me so I'm using 4620. Can you get a 2D setup stable?
After being pi**ed off with my suse/nvidia problems, i decided to get myself redhat9.0-isofiles. about 4 hours later (incl. downloading and burning) i had a running system incl. 3d-accelleration (nvidia 5328). there is just one error left. X needs about 2 minutes to get a loginscreen...i think iŽll have to do some tweaks with the NvAGP-Options, etc...
(better than my previous results).
p.s:i donŽt think its a problem with the via-chipset, but with the suse system-architecture.
You could change the initdefault runlevel to boot into the console to see why it takes all of 2 minutes to login. Then start the gui: startx. (/etc/inittab is the file)
