Thumbs down Re: No more black terminals after starting X!!!!

Interestingly with:

vga=normal in grub and
options nvidia NVreg_UseVBios=0 in modprobe

when I do ctl-alt-F1 I get a blank screen and thats it my machine is dead unless I login remotely or sometimes I don't get a blank screen but the existing screen image stays and a I lose my mouse and the machine is dead.

But if I turn off desktop-effects such as compiz then doing ctl-alt-F1 gives me a blank screen which after a short time respawns my x-windows greeter so I can login?

Still no terminal though. So I'm forced to edit inittab to init 3 on boot login do my mods then either do init 5 or reset inittab to init5 before reboot when ever I upgrade my nvidia card drivers.
