cannot start X on Toshiba Qosmio G40
Hi, sorry I'm a newbie. Please pardon any lack of information and such. I appreciate any assistance regarding this matter.
I have Fedora 10 installed. I use 22.214.171.124 kernel and tried to install the NVIDIA driver, I tried both versions 180.44 and 185.19, however none of them worked. Actually this problem has been there since I upgraded to kernels above the 2.6.29 version. I have been using the default drivers provided by Fedora 10.
I have a Toshiba Qosmio G40. It has NVIDIA G8600M GT installed. Since kernel 2.6.29 now Linux seems to detect the Bluetooth device on my laptop which hasn't worked before. However, at the very same time, NVIDIA drivers stopped working as well since this kernel version is installed.
This problem is only specifically for my laptop (the Qosmio G40) because I have almost exactly the same set up for my desktop which has NVIDIA 8600 GT and everything works fine with kernel 126.96.36.199 installed.
Probably while I am posting problems with my Qosmio G40 laptop, even though it's completely irrelevant, I thought to mention this as well: The sound card is detected, but the speaker never produces any sound. I know it's not a faulty speaker because when the laptop started the BIOS actually plays a sound using the speaker, but Linux doesn't play any sound through the speaker - despite having detected the sound card. If you plug an analog earphone, no problems, all sound there - so no sound card problems :\ - still puzzles me until this very day.
Anyhow, the sound card issue is just a side track. I'm just wondering why I cannot make the NVIDIA driver to work on kernel 188.8.131.52 . It stops just before X starts, when it finishes loading/starting anacron and about to start X. The screen flickers, then nothing happens.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance to everyone!
