I have a Inspiron 8200 with a Geforce 4 Go with 64MB and a working SUSE 7.3! I have also successfully installed the nVidia drivers and my X-Server is working well!
So I could be happy!? Yes and NO! Shutting down the system is in the text mode no problem but when I have start the x-server and then I try to switch back in text mode (directly or indirectly with the shutdown-command) or in another runlevel my system will hang
Also a Ctrl-Alt-Del will crush the system like every other X-Server stopping act.
I looked in the /var/log/messages file and saw that the nvidia driver did infinitly allocate and freed memory. Here seems to be a problem, but I'm not sure.
Thx for ANY help ;-))
