Default Lockup on Lenovo T61 w/ 100.14.06

Hi there,

I had a brand new Lenovo ThinkPad T61 w/ an NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M that I'm trying to get going under Ubuntu 7.04 with the beta 100.14.06 drivers.

The system installs the driver properly, but when I start Xorg, the screen goes completely blank, hangs the machine, and the alpha lock LED blinks.

Has anyone else experienced a similar problem? Is their a workaround?

Thanks,
Steve

This is a known problem that should be fixed in the next 100.14.xx release. Unfortunately, there is no workaround (other than using an external CRT, rather than the internal panel).

Is there an ETA on this driver? I have a T61 and with gentoo all I get is a black screen when I try to load the nvidia driver.

The next driver should be released in the near future.

I should have expected such a response. I won't hold my breath.

These laptops are starting to trickle out, I hope there is a driver before too many people get PO'd!

Hello !
Same problem with laptop Asus Z53Sseries (8600M GS)
Good to know that you found the problem. I'll wait for next version of drivers.

Thumbs up 100.14.09

Woohoo!

It looks like nvidia just put out a 100.14.09 driver, and my T61 w/ Quadro 140M is now working perfectly!

Now if Intel will just release drivers for the 4965 wireless ...

I've been trying to use them with Fedora 7, but I believe the hotplug loading of the firmware is failing, though I'm not sure why.

Could you post your xorg.conf?
Did you supply any acpi options to your kernel during boot, or when compiling?

Thank you.

I didn't specify anything special when compiling, or booting the kernel. Pretty much everything stock worked as long as you used the nvidia binary driver.
