I am experimenting with slackware on an older machine to get a feel for it before i migrate my main pc to slackware. Everything is working well, or i am finding solutions quickly enough. One new problem is occuring since i installed the nvidia drivers.
I went to http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
and downloaded drivers for my card, NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.12-pkg1.run, and installed with the command
and everything seemed fine. I started a new x session, but when i ended the session all programs shutdown ok, but then all that happened was the screen went black, i could not get any prompt. Ctrl+Alt+F2 did nothing, Ctrl+Alt+Backspace did nothing, Ctrl+Alt+Del was all that worked and my system rebooted, back to Lilo. I have no idea what is going on, and need help.
