Question hang up....

Actually 2 things...1st when I switch from X to console, the cursor marker is 2 red dots blinkin.

2nd if I try to switch back to X system hangs (though not totally, if i have for example music playing at background it doesnt mind anything about this)... only change is reboot

GF2 MX, slackware, kernel 2.4.18... (not really sure what else info i should post so ask pls?) any ideas? thanks

ps. how i get more columns n lines to console? It should now be framebuffer console with 1024x768 resolution but fonts are same sized as default console (what did i do wrong during kernel compile )

I think you are using rivafb a framebuffer driver for nvidia cards. Never use it! It is very bad. Not only does it cause drawing problems in X but it can also cause instability problems and problems with VT switching. If you are using rivafb really disable it and move to vesafb.

First check if it is loaded using "lsmod". If it is not loaded as a module check the kernel log files or the kernel config file you used for compilation.

Unload the module or recompile the kernel without rivafb. (if builtin)
