Slackware64-current 1st April, 2010: Black screen on leaving KDE session
With the updates of today I hoped an annoying problem would be solved, but unfortunately, this is not the case.
The problem: I use runlevel 4 and KDM. Leaving a KDE session should throw me back to the KDM logon dialog. But instead I see a black screen, with a cursor prompt blinking in the top left corner. But no input is accepted, apparently, from keyboard or mouse. I cannot even switch to a terminal.
All I *can* do, is shutdown the machine, either remotely from another computer via an SSL login, or by pressing the power button of the computer.
Maybe this is still related with the recent NVIDIA incompatibilities with Xorg (Nouveau?). I have an NVIDIA 8600 GT graphics adapter, and I am using the 64-bit driver version 173.14.25. Within a session, everything is fine. But quitting a session causes the above problem. I hoped that this would be solved with the Xorg updates, but unfortunately they didn't help.
BTW, Nouveau is blacklisted in my /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf.
1. How do I fix this?
2. Does anybody else have the same problem, or am I the only one?
