Default >=177.80: Black VT bug

Bug is still present in latest version (actually in all driver versions 177.*). Geforce 7800GS AGP.

After starting X server (1.5), consoles are responsive, but do not show anything; They are completely black.

Reproducible: Always.

BTW: Does nvidia actually acknowledge this? I don't even get a response to my bug report.

Exclamation Re: 177.80: Black VT bug

DarkShadow, I'm also seeing this problem with 180.37. I have two monitors running two separate X screens (no TwinView or Xinerama), and when I switch back to a text-mode VT, I just get a black screen with a blinking gray cursor. It's like the video hardware isn't being reinitialized properly. I can log in (as evidenced by "ps" output once back in X), but nothing shows up on the screen except the blinking cursor while I'm in text mode. I can switch back to X easily, and there are no corruption or instability issues once back in X.

NVIDIA, please respond.
