Same problem, BLACK SCREEN!!!!!!!!!!!!! As I could notice, no one here was capable of installing this big **** nvidia driver. No errors were reported on my Xfree log, no (EE) no (WW) no (!!), only (**) (--) (==) and (II) I have in my log file.... I sent an e-mail to nVidia with my XF86Config-4 file and with my log file, no answer yet... I'm waiting. If someone here knows how to solve it, please tell me, I've tried everything I could, even BIOS settings... And nothing solves it... I'm attaching my XF86Config-4 with my log in one file.
Forgot to mention I'm using Conectiva Linux 9, but as i saw it doen't seem that this problem is distro related.
And other thing I have to tell is that everything in Linux is complicated to do, never saw an OS so difficult to handle!
