Default Re: NVIDIA drivers cause black screen on startx

Johnnydoe and Severus, your problems are most likely different even tho you have similar 'symptoms' (the crash). Please read the sticky post If you have a problem, PLEASE read this first! and then post the information either here or a new thread.

Both of you, try both available AGP drivers, AGPgart and NvAGP. If AGPgart is compiled as a module in your kernel then you can control which of these is active by using the option below in the Device section of your X config:
Option "NvAGP" "n" # where n is 1 for NvAGP and 2 for AGPgart

Severus, try using the non-smp kernel first.
