Default Re: kernel 2.6.8 and black screen with last driver

Thank you both of you for responding.

zander, I've just tried the patch 6111, using
Quote:
To apply the above patch: NVIDIA--... --extract-only
cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6111-pkg1/usr/src/nv
patch -p1 < /root/nvidia-pci-enable.patch
cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6111-pkg1
make install
where "nvidia-pci-enable.patch" is nv_enable_pci.txt, found in the thread. It installed correctly, but the problem persists.


Giblet, here is part of PS my XFree86.0.log. I didn't find how to attach the file, so I only post cut parts, since forum doesn't accept to long posts. Tell me please how to do that, and I will post it completely.

>1) Does your xorg.conf have all the nvidia stuff?
Well I don't know much abou this, but I guess so. A failure can be remarked,
"Failure reading EDID parameters for display device CRT-0"
Another one concerns APM, that I did not enable, since I compiled kernel with ACPI (and no APM).

I read the thread till the end and noticed that someone (ScofieldKid) got the black screen using SMP, what I did enable for my DELL laptop, i5150 with HyperThreading (the original reason of my upgrade from 2.4.20-8 on RH9). Can it be the problem ? I never compiled 2.6.8 kernel without SMP.
May I try this ?

Thanks, Xavier.
