I have a geforce 6600, and running Mandriva 2005LE on a dual AMD64 machine. I installed the 7676 driver and change the drive to "nvidia", then restart X. The screen went black and the monitor stand by after several seconds. I am knid of new to linux and I don't know what to do now. Any one can help? Thanks a lot.

zhuqing8027,
Your bug report shows that you're using the 'nv' X driver, and not the 'nvidia' X driver. Please see the NVIDIA README for instructions on how to configure xorg.conf to use the nvidia driver.

Thanks,
Lonni

Using "nv" make the X sever started, but no 3D feature. The black screen was caused by "nvidia".

zhuqing8027,
Can you ssh into the system when you get the black screen? If so, then please do so, and generate a bug report. A bug report against the nv driver doesn't shed light on what is wrong with the nvidia driver.

Thanks,
Lonni

Here is the new log file. But after changing "nv" to "nvidia" I didn't start X because under a black screen I can do nothing. I just installed the driver, changed "nv" to "nvidia", and ran "nvidia-bug-report.sh".

Replacing 'nv' with 'nvidia' in your xorg.conf is not going to show me why X isn't working.

What kind of motherboard do you have, and are you using the most recent BIOS?

Thanks,

The motherboard I use is "ASUS K8N-DL Dual Socket 940 NVIDIA nForce4 Professional Extended ATX Server Motherboard " and the BIOS version is just the one coming with the board. I don't know if it's the most recent one, and I will check it tomorrow morning when I arrive at the office.
Thank you.
