The console is present because I can login and executing commands (blind login), and by switching ALT-F7 I can return in graphical mode.
I had the same problem also with previous driver versions with OpenSuse 11.3.
I've tried to use vga=normal as boot option in grub and also NVreg_UseVBios=0 as nvidia module parameter but they didn't help.
I've tried to follow this thread
Any suggestion to solve such very annoying issue?
Are you facing same issue with "Nouveau" driver which comes with OS? Please confirm.
