Loose display on X exit or terminal switch


Hello all.
I'm fairly new to Linux, but I'm hoping you'll be able to help me.

I'm running Mandrake 10.0 official on an nFORCE2 board and an ASUS v8440 (which is a GeF4 440Ti). I am able to install the latest nvidia driver and X loads properly at boot. I can also tell the system not to start in X and all is well with that too. The problem comes when I stop the Xclient. I loose my display; the monitor de-syncs. The system is still alive though; I can type startx in and everything will come back up.

Is this normal? What if I want to set init 3 and still have a display after I've been inside X? Shouldn't I be able to do that? I'm convinced that I'm doing something wrong or I haven't configured something correctly.

Also, if I ctrl-alt-Fx or ctrl-alt-bksp to another terminal or out of X, I loose my display and I can't get it back at all.

If anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

No, that's certainly not normal. You may want to
have a look at the output of dmesg to see which
driver is being used for the frame-buffer. There are
some problems switching between frame-buffer and
X with a few combinations of drivers... the i845 on
my Intel-workstation for instance will go black when
switching from X to console if I have a frame-buffer
going. It's fine with a normal text-modes.


Cheers,
Tink

I'm sorry

Sorry to be so ignorant, but I ran dmesg at the console (not as root) and it returned the information below. How can I start to figure this out?
