I have a Via KT400 chipset, and I get a blankscreen when I use my newly build nvidia drivers for the 2.6 kernel. What do I do?

Go to the following it states it is for 2.5, but it applies to the 2.6 kernel. It will help alot.

http://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kern...loween-2.5.txt

For the patch to the nvidia driver go here:

You will need the mod-init-tools

if you are using debian just do an apt-get.

I'm running Gentoo and it detects that I'm running the 2.6 kernel series and applies the patch to the nvidia driver, however this is what happends.

This problem is most commonly caused by the presence of a frame buffer console driver such as rivafb/vesafb, AGP specific problems (see the NVIDIA README for information on AGP stability problems), the use of broken UP I/O APIC (see the noapic kernel parameter) and/or ACPI configurations (try with pci=noacpi or even acpi=off). If your problem is specific to Linux 2.6.0-test*, you should compare the Linux 2.4 and Linux 2.6 kernel configurations. Also worth noting is that Linux 2.6.0-test* are development kernels and as such not guaranteed to work at all.

If the problem persists with current Linux 2.6.0-test kernels, you may want to inform the Linux AGPGART maintainer about it.
