The nvidia packages that I use are the Debian ones from Randall Donald. At some point, when I was using etch just like now, I got a higher kernel version (the sources are now 2.6.18). I recompiled the kernel and installed it, and expected to just do
m-a a-i nvidia
apt-get install nvidia-glx
and be completely happy.
But not only does my nvidia card not work (which is bad enough), my complete X has stopped working! It says "no devices found" with both the nv and the nvidia driver!!!
Would anyone be able to help me with this? I can login as root (maybe that's the problem
so would be able to provide detailed information!
Thanks very much!
