Default upgrade to 2.6.16 displays a blackscreen

Hi,

I've updated my system to linux 2.6.16-rc2 and nvidia 1.0.8178 and now I get a black screen after booting.

dmesg says:
NVRM: loading NVIDIA Linux x86 NVIDIA Kernel Module 1.0-8178 Wed Dec 14 16:22:51 PST 2005
NVRM: PAT index 1 already configured for Write-Combining!
NVRM: Aborting, due to PAT already being configured

I have a GeForce Go 6600 TE/6200 TE, as /var/log/Xorg.0.log says.

I've used gentoo's packages to install the driver (nvidia-kernel-1.0.8178-r3 & nvidia-glx-1.0.8178) and they already include most patches (as can be seen at http://www.gentoo.org/cgi-bin/viewcv.../?hideattic=1).

Can somebody help me, please?

Thanks,
Nuno

Which kernel were you using when this problem was not present?

Also, please generate and post a bug report.

Thanks,
Lonni

@nlopes: also, are you using vanilla Linux 2.6.16-rc2 or a kernel derived from this kernel? To the best of my knowledge, vanilla Linux 2.6.16-rc2 does not install a WC entry in the PAT.

If you use 1.0-8178 with 2.6.11.10 is the problem present?

If you disable the vesafb does that have any impact?
