Re: Xorg, Nvidia -> black screen of death.
After using gentoo a few times I found that what kernel I compiled at stage1 wholly
wreaked havok upon my system when I upgraded the next kernel or nv packages. I guess thats the price you pay building custom?
Did you do a stage1 install with a different kernel?
You may have to reinstall from stage1 if so.
It fixed alot of my problems.
last install I just made general modifications, upgrades go alot smoother now.
hope you get yours sorted out, good luck
