Nvidia driver slackware14.1
I just installed Slackware14.1 , installed wicd , sbopkg and I few other things, tried seamonkey got onto internet Ok, then tried firefox and system crashed. Then got not unmounted cleanly, I stuck with ext2 so ran e2fsck -v -y /dev/sda2
Not a good start. There was text on reboot about noveau- i have Nvidia geForce. Decided I would have a go at installing Nvidia driver.
I botched it, but although I had installed
xf86-video-nouveau-blacklist-noarch-1.txz to my surprise I got my xwindow back up. In my menu I have an entry for nvidia settings, but says -looks like your not using Nvidia.From what I can understand Noveau driver should not load, if i blacklisted it, and Nvidia took a dive ,so why is my xwindow working?
Looking in /etc/X11 I have xorg.conf.backup(inside says created by nvidia) and also xorg.conf-vesa
So is my xwindow using xorg.conf-vesa and is a vesa module being used?
