garbage display exiting graphic mode
when exiting graphic mode or shutting down have garbage dispaly
problem does not exist with the original "NV" driver supplied by the OS
the OS is mandrake linux V9.2
video card is GEforce 4 MX 440
motherboard is DFI TA64-B
CPU is P3
Nvidia driver is latest 1.0-5336
would appreciate help
I have the same problem with the latest (5336) drivers in 2.6.2-pre8.
Works fine in 2.4.25-rc?.
It hapens every time I quit the X server. It is frozen so deep that SysRQ keys don't
work and I cannot login from a different computer.
Sometimes I have black screen, sometimes vertical yellow and pink stripes.
I read something that to restore the text mode, the driver needs to access BIOS INT 10. I don't know if can do that just without anything or if it nees a kernel module to be loaded.
Other thing is that I only tested it from vesafb and rivafb framebuffers. I Will try it from a VGA console.
I forgot - I have MSI KT4V motherboard with Via KT400 chipset and a GeForce2 MX 400 card. And X server from RedHat 8.0.
You'll want vesafb (or rivafb) disabled.
how do you disable it?
Assuming it is vesafb you're using, passing video=vesa:off vga=normal to the kernel (from the boot loader) should do the trick.
