THANK YOU so much!
I now got it working with a 2.6.6 kernel!
However, still no success with a 2.6.5 kernel but who cares?
BUT one small problem arose along the way. I couldn´t get past the nvidia login screen. The X crashed and gave the error:
Fatal server error:
Could not open default font ´fixed´:
looks like the is an incompatibility with the font server xfs.(no, my harddrive is not full
) So I opened the xorg.conf and commented out the line
and now it works.
Is it OK to comment out that line?
