Default need to keep reloading driver

I have the latest driver for the quadro nvs 290 driver for redhat 5.5. When I log off, I don't get back the splash screen, it keeps me at the command line. If I rerun the driver install I get the splash screen back.

Why does this keep happening? Is this a known bug?

Default Re: need to keep reloading driver

since the main drivers page says that your video card is supported my many driver versions

...
can you specify which version do you have ?

also, can you read http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=46678 and generate a good report with the debug info as instructed after the issue appears ?

how many screens do you use? the screen section has 3 yet the monitor section has 4 ( 3 DELLs and one HP )...ummm ?

BTW, in xorg.conf the Option "NoLogo" should be "1" ( so no logo is showed on boot ) or "0" ( which is the default; so that the logo is showed )

Sorry I have not written in a while, I got put on a more pressing project.

Anyway, our number of screens varies depending on where you happen to be sitting. Some areas have 1 screen, some have 2, and some have 3.

install the nvidia-current-modaliases if u are using ubuntu.
blacklist the nouveau driver in your blacklist.conf

apt-get remove and install the nvidia-current again..
