SuSe 9.0 Pro - Screen freezes after logout
I run SuSe 9.0 Professional on my Sony GRT250 laptop.. I have a nVidia
GeForce4 420 Go graphics card and a VESA 1024x768@60HZ monitor on my system. I use KDE 3.1. I downloaded the nVidia driver (1.0-5328) and installed on my laptop. Now, when I logout, my screen turns blank with hazy lines flickering..I observed this prob after I had installed the driver 1.0-5328.
I am a newbie trying to move to Linux. Any help will be highly appreciated.
I seem to have the same kind of troubles...
Geforce 2 MX 400
New nvidia-driver (got it to install by downloading & compiling a generic kernel from kernel.org instead of using a mandrake-specific one).
Leaving X will crash the system completely.
(ie, Reboot / Halt / Alt-Fx)
Current XF86-Config-4 settings:
VendorName "nVidia Corporation"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce2 DDR (generic)"
Option "NvAGP" "1"
Option "NoLogo" "1"
Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "TV"
NVRM version: NVIDIA Linux x86 NVIDIA Kernel Module 1.0-5336 Wed Jan 14 18:29:26 PST 2004
GCC version: gcc version 3.2.2 (Mandrake Linux 9.1 3.2.2-3mdk)
At the moment, I have managed to prevent screen freezes with the following:
In kernel configuration:
disable framebuffer console support
disable logo conf
=> recompile, install (incl. modules), lilo.
In XF86-Config (to prevent color-screwups: 16 bit Default-Color-Depth)
