Amilio M3438G / Nvidia 6800 256mo / Two hard drive (sata raid scsi)

1 install slackware 11 (huge26.s)
2 compile the kernel to the kernel 2.6.17.13 and install the generic / header / source
3 reboot and start X and the Kmix for put the sound server on the right way
4 install the Nvidia driver out of X (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9746-pkg1.run) and restart X

at this time all is ok ... but when i try to stop X when i turn off the computer in kde ...

Well think along these lines please... the NVIDIA driver is a driver for accelerated X ... kind of makes you think you should install that driver when NOT running X, don't you think? And please do not post your frustration with this driver install in other threads. One thread will do.

Thumbs up Nvidia 6800 on slackware !



So after reading a lot i finally find why my screen seems to burn after the shutdown of X server !

it was because i've installed the last NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9746-pkg1.run !
Now i've installed the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7182-pkg1.run and everything works well !

Thanks you Mr Nvidia for the works you do for linux !

Cool M3438G Nvidia 6800 solution !

ok so for the good resolution ( 1440 x 900 ) & a good end of X this is what you need :

NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8776-pkg1.run

after change the /etc/X11/xorg.conf and change somelines to 1440x900 than 1024x768 !

for the exact lines i'll be back later ...

Hi, so this is exactly what i do on my Siemens Amilo M3438G Nvidia Go Force 256mo
Slackware 11.0 Kernel 2.6.17.13

(first i install kernel files "generic / source header / ... & compile the kernel)

after a good reboot system

in the good directorie & out of X :

sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8776-pkg1.run

this install the Nvidia driver ...

after i startx ... open etc/X11/xorg.conf and modify the lines :

modes "1440x900 +0+0; 800x600 +0+0 ; 640x480 +0+0"

at this time try to save and modify your screensize if it don't work shutdown X & restart to try resize X
if it don't work anymore ... change the lines in that file too

var/log/Xorg.0.log

Validated modes:
"nividia-auto-select+0+0"
"800x600+0+0"
"640x480+0+0"
Virtual screen size determined to be 1440 x 900

It works really very well for me with no crash !
(on my configuration)
if you need some help (on the same system) i hope i'll can help you.
