Re: 2.4.20 and NVidia problem
this happend to me too. I set inapropriate framebuffer. I don't know if
this happening to you. Though it's strange. As I understand you see all
the messages while kernel boots, right? In this case have a look at
/var/log/XFree86.log (or something like that). If I write something that
doesn't make sense, please correct me. I am myself quite a newbie so I
just quess from my (not good) experience with NVidia.

This weekend, I tried to build a new kernel (2.4.20) on my laptop (Dell Inspiron

convey to people to explain this better?).
In any case, when I started up the new kernel, it wouldn't boot into KDE. So I
installed the latest NVidia modules from their website. Now, whenever I boot
into the new kernel, I just get a black screen. I've waited a while for it, to
see if there might be a delay, but this isn't the issue. I then have to screw
up everything to get myself functional again... hard reboot, fsck my active
I can, however, get everything to run fine with my 2.2 kernel.
Any suggestions on what is wrong here?
