Slackware & Nvidia drivers
Okay, you Slackware gurus,...
I am having an issue and looking for a resolution.
Dist: Slackware 9.1
Card: MSI GF4 TI4400 VTD 128Mb
Here is what has happened:
I installed the "pkg1" Nvidia drivers for my video card and edited my XF86Config file to my liking.
(However, I may not have made the appropriate editing).
I did all of this as "root".
Now, when I start X, it loads fine, (I see the Nvidia splash screen), and everything appears to be okay.
I can manuever around in KDE just fine.
However, when I exit out of X, I get nothing but a blank screen.
Zip, zilch, nada ... 1 black blank screen! :fu:
It used to take me back to my typical command line.
In order to get back to my original command line, I have to physically push the button, hold it in until the system shuts down, and then re-turn the machine on,...
which goes through its normal boot process and I am at my normal command line after logging in.
Maybe I missed something somewhere, but could one of you gurus possibly point me in the right direction to fix this.
To keep my machine operative, I have temporarily went back to my default XF86Config file that was produced by executing xf86config.
I would love to have the Nvidia drivers working to get my dual monitor set up.
Try editing lilo.conf
Make sure there's vga = normal
if youre using the rivafb kernel driver, dont use it... its known not to work with the nvidia-drivers... dont forget to comment out the GLcore and dri modules lines in the XF86Config-file. it shouldnt be necessary to have vga=normal in youre lilo.conf, but you might try that too...
No today anyway!
I am not using rivafb kernel driver.
And yes, I did comment out GLcore and dri modules.
I still get the "good ol' black blank screen" when I exit X.
It should take right back to the same command line when I execute "startx" from the beginning.
This is driving me Batty!! :fu: :argh: (spit):rw:
