Unhappy [Unsolved] Random Color Pattern In Text Mode

Hello everyone,

after the X server starts, whenever it goes into full screen text mode (i.e. when switching off, when you go to terminal using i.e. CTRL+ALT+F1/F2/F3/..., etc.) I get annoying random pattern of colors (mess of coloured rectangles).

I read somewhere that this is known problem on some cards and resolutions and "nVidia" is looking at it". It started with my comeback to nvidia drivers about half a year ago and even up-to-date drivers does the thing now. It worked well with last year drivers.

Any more info about the problem? Any solution?

nVidia GeForce 6800 Go 256MB
SuSE 10.3 (just updated )
1440x900, 16b. color depth, 3D on,
default settings with changes made by:
nvidia-xconfig --composite
nvidia-xconfig --render-accel
nvidia-xconfig --allow-glx-with-composite
nvidia-xconfig --add-argb-glx-visuals

Regards,

Oak

You see, it's not funny when your terminal looks like this. It is not possible to work in terminal this way...

I have the same issue in my dual-seat configuration, but I thought that it's because of running two X servers simultaneously. When I press Ctrl-Alt-F1 in my graphic session I get a garbled screen and X does not work till reboot

Arrow Re: Random Color Pattern In Text Mode

Yes, that is the problem I described. I.e. when I switch computer off, I also get mess on the screen until the computer switches off. In another words, I get this whenever X are running ant attempting to display a text-mode screen. I have a single screen (laptop). I didn't connected the second screen (flat TV) since I updated to SuSE 10.1 and re-installed nvidia drivers.
Anybody have any comments?
