Re: nVidia driver 1.0-96xx causes glitches, artifacts and crashes on Ubuntu Edgy/Feis
module building goes without a hitch. When I start X or GDM if i default to init 5 i get a black screen most of the time and my mouse and keyboard stop working. I have to do a manual shutdown. Some times i get the login window with half the screen missing. login just crawls and the desktop appears in patches when i click on the screen. Then sudden freeze, can be after 30 secs or 3 minutes (that is the maximum)
With the patched 8776 driver there are no such problems. How can i reproduce this when nothing moves. No ctrl+alt+f1 or f2 works for me to get into console mode> i am at a loss to know why this happens. I have an asus N766VM mobo- i have the latest bios though it is quite old.
I thought it was specific to feisty but once arch had the same problem, i knew it had to be a driver or mobo issue. i have tried every possible xorg configuration from the forums- beats me...
