Re: black screen with nvidia 1.0.9625
Fedora 5, 2.6.17 kernel, GeForce 5700LE, Viewsonic 1680x1050 flat panel.
While troubleshooting a system instability issue that only showed up during 3D (appears to have been a bad DIMM) I tried using 1.0.9626 with the following results:
1) Black screen on startx
2) Patched with the SMB-removal patch, X starts in a different resolution than specified in xorg.conf.
3) nvidia-settings doesn't show 1680x1050 as an allowed resolution, and there was no way to set it.
So even though I got it working, I was unable to set the native resolution of my flat-panel, so I backed it out to 1.0.8xxx, which works.
