Default Re: Chrash on boot after driver installing

Was the crash when starting X (the windowing system?). In other words, did you see some boot messages from Linux before the crash occured? I don't see how a crash would occur earlier because of the driver, so from here on I'll assume this is the case.

One common cause of crashes is the AGP support. You can remove it by adding

Option "NvAGP" "0"

to the "Devices" section of your XF86Config or x.org.conf file (probably somewhere like /etc/X11) from the text mode. See if this works.

The key is to start in a runlevel 3. The easiest way is probably to pass "3" as a parameter to the kernel on boot. You do this at the bootloader. For example, in GRUB there is a bar at the bottom for kernel parameters. If you have a way to access the hard drive, you can change the file "/etc/inittab" to use 3 as the default runlevel.

There is probably a way to do so in LILO as well, I just don't know how. Perhaps someone else will know.
