New Slackware user


I tried everything: Redhat 9, Fedora, Debian, Knoppix, ...
I installed Slackware a week ago, and I'm going to stay with it, I think.

I have only one problem (not Slackware-related), X. It starts, but crashes after a few minutes (no matter what I do). I'm hoping to solve this problem (because I really want to use X).

I just noticed this forum has a restriction. I can't post links before I post 5 messages. Damn...

Welcome to LQ

The restriction was imposed to prevent people from joining solely to advertise other sites and to prevent spamming.

That's probably a good thing, but I just wanted to give the link to my logfiles...

I've got working environment and had also strange errors with X-server and GeForce4 MX 8x AGP.

Does your system boot straight to kde or gnome?
Try booting to text-based mode and install nvidia drivers.

They can be found from here:
....http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-5336.html

On thing with nvidia drivers is that it is build "with" kernel. If you recompile kernel you'll have to install those drivers again, but if you won't recompile kernel, just install that package.

Have fun.

Because of all the problems with X, I always boot into text-based mode. And I already installed the drivers from nVidia...

I'm starting to think this isn't a configuration error, but a hardware error :-(
