Nvidi ti 4200 Blank Screen after nvidia install
 
I have a Nvidia ti 4200 video card, I am trying to install the Nvidia driver for it but I am running into some problems. Here is what I have done so far:

I first downloaded the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run file off of nvidia's site.
I then did a Ctrl-Alt-F1 and then an init 3 to get out to a prompt and down x.
I logged in as root and installed the .run file and it said everything was sucessfull.
I edited the XF86Config-4 file and changed the driver from "nv" to "nvidia" and saved the file.
I tried to start x and only get a blank screen, if I change the "nvidia" back to "nv" in my config file everything works fine.

Here's what my XFree86.0.log shows:

I've same problem too
 
I've the same problem with the same videocard (Gainward TI 4200) but under RH 9 (Shrike). After installing the driver a blank sreen appears (or sometimes a black screen with some random chars). This is because the X-server crashes invact if U press ctrl-alt-canc the system restart, but the ctrl-alt-backspace doesn't function. The problem is that the debug info in XFree86 doesn't report EE or significant warning.
Now I'm going to post a my own thread stressing the problem I hope to solve it asa soon as possible.
Have U solved the problem?

P.S.: if u change in XF86config nvidia to nv you don't use the nvidia accelerated driver but the generic for Geffo 4, that driver works fine also to me (and I haven't still uninstalled the accelerated one)

Tomas 02-16-04 10:12 AM

Restart?
 
What key is CTL-ALT-CANC??

Tomas

DaryX 02-16-04 10:47 AM

sorry...
 
Probably U don't have an Italian keyboard, in an US keyboard must be CTRL-ALT-DEL. Right? with this key U're able to restartt the system (U can obtain the same effect with #init 6).

bailout 02-16-04 08:01 PM

exactly the same problem here with mdk9.2. I get a completely black screen and have to hard reboot :( cntl-alt-backspace/del have no effect. Works again when I edit back to load "nv"

DaryX 02-17-04 04:50 AM

Probably is due to AGP modules
 
I've posted a new thread about this ....
