Default Re: blank screen w/ kernel 2239, but not 2054

Hi Netllama,

thanks for your reply. I guess I forgot to add that I had followed steps 1 - 3 in that post.

In kernel 2054, I did the
Code:
# yum install kernel-devel xorg-x11-server-sdk pkgconfig
before installing the drivers.

The driver (8776) worked fine after that.

After the "Software Update" updated the kernal, I did the
Code:
# yum install kernel-devel xorg-x11-server-sdk pkgconfig
thing again, but yum stated that there was nothing to do.

I think the issue here is that the xorg.conf file isn't being saved. Either that, or perhaps the xorg.conf file created by the 2054 kernel isn't being accessed by 2239 kernel? Just a thought...

-- EDIT --
I guess I should add that I'm using GeForce 4 MX440. AMD Athlon 1.1 GHz, if it matters.
