Mandrake 9/NVidia failed allocation
Haven't found any references elsewhere to the same problem: on installing the drivers from the tar.gz files and setting up XF86Config-4 as directed, I'm getting the following errors in /var/log/messages:
Oct 13 04:12:45 endor kernel: __alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed (gfp=0x1d2/0)
VM: killing process kdeinit
Getting a large number of similar errors, and the overall result is that X is failing to start.
Any suggestions for how to fix this problem, or failing that, revert to the old drivers that worked before?
