Short System Summary:
Athlon 1 Ghz
512 ram (original)
Redhat 8.0 and windows XP (I only use XP when I have to, like for some games
It started about nine hours ago.
First, I noticed when I tried to mount my vfat and ntfs drive, it did not recognise any hda partitions at all. I could only see the partitions / and /boot on hdc.
So I restarted. It recognised all the partitions properly, and everything went fine until X tried to start up.
I get the nvidia splash screen. I stays longer than usual, then it flickers. Then it flickers some more. Eventually it briefly flickers by the bash login prompt, wich I can type in while it's there. I takes a few cycles to login as root and change the runlevel.
After that, I've got a fully functonal system without X.
I did try with recompiling and reinstalling the nvidia drivers, but it didn't help.
None of the logs I checked showed anything odd either. The system log just showed everything as ok up until the change in runlevel or system restart.
I haven't tried changing from the nvidia driver to nv in the XFree86.config(that's it's name? I've forgot
I've pretty much ruled out hardware failure, as my card works fine in windows.
Please, any help appreciated! Sorry, don't have any logs right now, as I'm in windows atm. I don't think Lynx could handle the boards
Any particular logs that might be interesting, I can get next time I enter linux...
Really hate when things like this happens.
And no, I didn't fiddle with any system settings recently or when this happend.
Thanks in advance!
