Hello,

Is the screen blank just at the beginning of the start of your X-session?

'cause I had problems under SuSE 8.2 when shutting down X or changing to console (Textmode) => PC freezes. But X itself works fine with nvidia-driver 4363.

My configuration is:

EP 8RDA+
GeForce4 Ti4200 AGP8x
SuSE 8.2

Now I'm working with the nvidia 4149-driver.

Loading an older Mainboard BIOS (<= 3129) seems not to work in my case.

I'm still searching for a solution to fix this problem. Seems, that I have to reverse engineer some sources

Hoping, hoping, searching...
Andreas

Default Same here I think...

When I upgrade my drivers past 1.0.4191, I have problems. I boot up fine, and when I type startx, everything starts loading, but then my screen goes blank, and no matter if I switch from x to a term ot back again, I have no video. I can ssh in, so it's the video drivers. I have a gainsward geforce 4 ti 4200.

There is nothing in the logs and the xf86config-4 is normal, there isn't anything special in it, so any ideas?

The Epox 8rda+ has some sbios issues - I believe the latest known working sbios is 3129.

Hello,

I've loaded BIOS 3129, but the Problem is the same as described above and in this Thread. I will try to load an older version and install the actual nvidia graphics driver...
Hope there is a way to get the console working ;-)

Thank you so far,
Andreas
