Default Re: Black screen (no signal) when entering Virtual Console

Slogum, I'm having a similar problem. When I try to switch back to console while the X server is running or kill the X server and drop back to console I get a display with a bunch of multicolored garbage pixels painted on it instead of readable text. I got the nvidia kernel module from and my uname -a is
Linux slack #2 SMP Tue Jun 19 14:58:11 CDT 2007 i686 Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.53GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
My kernel is the slackware 12.0 default install kernel.

So just as with slogum's problem, after launching the X server all of my virtual consoles are fouled up. I get some display, but not one with any text, just an array of different colored garbage pixels.
