Nvidia nForce XFree86 issues with RH 8.0
Have installed RedHat 8.0 which works really well on all but one of my machines.
MBoard ASUS A7266-????
CPU Athlon 1700+
256 MB DDR
On board nForce PCI Controller
On board GeForce 2 (Generic)
On board NVidia MCP audio (Dolby Digital)
X just hangs during the install .... (No messages)
I tried the text install .....
Firstboot init script hangs machine (I believe its trying X) (No messages)
Should I try bypass the firstboot set init level to 3 and install NVidia drivers ???
Does nForce PCI controller require drivers before this will work???
I have had the same problem on my wifes ASUS NForce motherboard and have yet to find a solution. Has anyone else solved this problem??
Need to get three drivers.
They are all available from nvidia's site.
Do a text install . . .
once you have installed (Making sure not to start in Graphic mode)
install the 3 rpm packages listed above.
then in /etc/X11/XF86Config
find the line that says "nv" and change it to "nvidia"
then in /etc/inittab
cahnge the initdefault line to be init 5 and not init 3.
if you have hassles then reboot in interactive mode and do not start the firstboot service .... that will give you a chance to login on one of your tty's
I hope this helps
Thanks avrin. I'll give it a go and let you know the outcome.
