I've really been looking forward to the black death issue on
nVidia Corporation NV17 [GeForce4 440 Go 64M] (rev a3)
being fixed by the long-awaited driver update. What a dissapointment!
This is a compaq presario r3000z amd_64. I had no problem with 6111, but this driver won't work with kernels >2.6.9.
I am running Fedora3. Starting X with nvidia driver 6629 or 7167 results in a black screen. I can switch VTs, it's not dead. No useful error messages in any log file. Tried disabling AGP, no difference.
Please do something about this! The standard xorg driver isn't really usable either. I have xorg-x11-6.8.1-12.FC3.21. It works in graphics mode, but can't be switched back to text - result is a scambled screen.
If you can't figure out how to make 7167 work on 440 chip, can you please make 6111 compile on newer kernels?
