Default graphical bootup gone

Hi.
After installing the nvidia module for MX440 on kernel 2.6.11mdk of Mandrake 10.2, the graphical bootup and terminals are gone.
Even giving a vga=791 to lilo.conf doesn't change the resolution. I even can't use the Riva-Module together with nvidia, which is supporting Framebuffer for the terminals, as I understand the kernels help.

Any suggests?

From what I understand, you should not use the RivaFB module with the nvidia module. They can conflict and cause major problems. The kernel should have a generic vesa framebuffer module which you can use to get video in text terminal mode.

Also, try vga=765 and see if that works. It's lower resolution, but if it works, then you can slowly try other resolutions.

Hope this helps.

I selected "VESA VGA graphics support" built into the kernel.
Lilo now has: vga=765
But the framebuffer graphic still doesn't come up at start.
I am using the ramdisk made by Mandrake, should I build an other one?
