Re: Fatal Server Error: caught signal 8
I am still having trouble loading the nvidia drivers properly. I installed the NVIDIA driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6111-pkg1.run, changed the XF86Config file, ie replaced "vesa" with "nvidia" and restarted.
"The installer gives a warning: your kernel was configured to include rivafb support as a loadable kernel module.
The rivafb driver conflicts with nvidia driver; the nvidia kernel will still be built and installed..."
At the next boot the gui wouldnt come up and came with different complaints, see the log files which are attached:
Meanwhile i found a different way to change the video driver:
at the command prompt type su and password for root
type and enter drakconf
navigate to display and activate
select xorg, vesa
type and enter exit
Also the error "failed to set write-combining range (0xe8000000, 0x8000000)"remains even with the vesa driver loaded.
