Default Black screens on consoles.

Hello to all.

I use SuSE 9.2 pro with xorg software, right now version 6.8.2 RC1, with my Geforce2 MX400/440. Nvidia driver is the last one, version 6629. All runs fine, even in X (can play Tuxracer) but problems is when I want to go to consoles (CTRL+ALT+F2/F3/F4/F5/F6), they are all black, or in F1 instead of a black console I have several lines in blue, orange, etc etc etc, but no reading, in F10 I have almost the same, in F2, F3, F4, F5 and F6 I have all black.

From the forum of SuSE I got sugestion to disable framebufer console but result is the same. Cany anyone help me in this matter???

Best regards and till next emails.

You're not the only one. And not the only one without a reply.

See my post yesterday. This has been going on for me for a looong time now. And I am not very happy about it.

I'll definitely never buy another nVidia card.

No one is exactly happy about it, but then we're powerless to do anything about it.

try to revert to an older version of the driver, say, the 4496, with the patch from minion.de for 2.6 kernels.

it solved a lot of problems for my G4 card (TV-out working, no problems with messy consoles, etc...)
