Angry All I get to see is NVIDIA splash

After hours of browsing, patient reading of README and installation notes, and installing the driver, I reboot, only to see NVIDIA Splash, nothing else! looks like the splash doesn't like to give way for any other thing....

I could do Ctrl + alt + F1 and login there and reboot. (apparently it hadn't freezed) Thank goodness. Has anybody faced this problem just after installing drivers for your Geforce Card on Linux?

My card is Geforce MX 4000 and I'm using Fedora Core 3. help appreciated.

Default Re: All I get to see is NVIDIA splash

The 6629 drivers don't work well with cards of that generation or older. Try 6111. If it still fails revert to the "nv" driver to see if a nvidia driver mis-configuration is the problem.
