Default X86_64 white terminal

Hello,

I have gentoo 2005.0 on my laptop acer 1524 (amd64, geforce 5700)

I use the nvidia driver version 1.0.6629. With this driver Xorg works great (doom3, ut2004,...).

But after starting of xorg, I can not switch to a terminal (ctrl+alt+f1). The screen is blank. But I can come back to xorg with alt+f7.

Any solution ?


Thanks

Frederic

That doesn't work for me.
With this options, the terminal is no more white but have many rectangular blocks of different colors.

I am using kernel 2.6.10. I am going to upgrade to last kernel and last nvidia-kernel.

Thank you for your help.

Frederic

Yes. I think that if you give the 2.6.11 kernel and the latest Nvidia driver (7174) a try you will be pleased. At least it fixed the problems and instability I'd been dealing with for the last 6 months. Of course, YMMV.

duke out
