Talking MY Blanck Screen FIX

It is an older version of the nvidia drivers but the only one working on my g3ti500 prophet series.

You can find it at :

In mandrake 9.1 i have install it,how ?

-Install your kernel source (install package, in mandrake control center and search source and choose to install kernek source).

-Go in init 3 mode

- Uncompress this archive NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.tar.gz
gunzip NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.tar.gz
tar -xvf NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.tar
cd NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123 (go into the folder)

- Compile the kernel with:
- make
- make install
(If you are error verify your kernel source is installed)

IMPORTANT U MUST COMPILE KERNEL BEFORE FORCE RPM KERNEL (It only work in this order on Mdk 9.1 and you must force the kernel rpm for help GLX to recognize the nvidia_kernel):

-After compile it,you must install this:
rpm -Uvh --force NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-3123.mdk82up.i586.rpm

Because if you dont install kernel rpm, glx rpm dont recognize your video kernel.

-And finally

rpm -Uvh --force NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-3123.i386.rpm

After all, you modify your xfconf for remplace nv by nvidia

And after all, i would to like to say great work for this driver the opengl acceleration is very beautiful and powerfull, BUT I really hope Nvidia's team is aware of this 4x.xx problem for Ge3 and Ge4 users.

My system works well with with acpi on (ehe) 31.23 DRV Powaaaa
