Default Re: kernel 2.6.8 and black screen with last driver

Ouf (French)

I found what hangs X server: in XF86Config, I had the line
Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "CRT, DFP, TV"
set in order to fasten a bit boot X server, that didn't complain when using 5336 version of nvidia driver, using kernel 2.4.20-8.
"Ignoring DFP" caused the black screen, using any kernel with 6111 version.
I erased this option, and now nvidia driver seems to be ok.

A brief googling didn't tell me about this problem, as well as the README on drivers page.
Have you heard about this problem ?

However, thanks for your support.
