Quadro 4000 SDI + current driver = no Xserver
I just installed a new Quadro 4000 SDI in a linux box running the following versions:
X Window System Version 7.1.1
Release Date: 12 May 2006
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 7.1.1
Build Operating System: Linux 2.6.18-53.el5 x86_64 Red Hat, Inc.
Nvidia version: 260.19.44 (also tried 270.41.06)
As soon as X Window starts the screen goes black. I've seen other threads regarding this but those users downgraded to 260.19.44 and solved the issue. This hasn't worked for us.
I see our X Window system is out of date. Should I be trying to upgrade this? I haven't because we have well over 100 machines deployed and the primary software we use likes this configuration.
