yes Zander .. it also happens with the 8776 drivers.. this time the error hexadecimal was:
login: NVRM: RmInitAdapter failed (0x31 :0xffffffff :988)
.. however.. this time..
1. while i was rebooting .. when gui went off and saw the command line that shows the reboot routine.. I saw somewhere (it was too fast!) the name of my Nvidia GeForce 7600 for the first time.
2. I still didn't run nvidia-settings cause it was taking ages to install gtk+-2 and all its dependencies.. therefore I edited the XF86Config manually..
Is the nvidia-settings essential to be run?
