I am trying to run a slackware 9.1 setup on my main workstation after realizing that Gentoo was too time-consuming.
Anyways, I installed Slack fine and everything boots correctly. However, my nvidia drivers give me a tainted warning when I try modprobing them (I go the official .run file from the nvidia website and ran the program - it installed fine with no warnings/errors). Okay, so I decide to change my xf86config file to the vesa drivers temproarily. One problem: X Hangs like a beotch!
Anyways, this happens when I use the nvidia or the vesa option. I startx, it takes a great deal of time to load, and then Fluxbox comes up with my keyboard and mouse not responding (I cannot turn the lock keys on/off, can't ctrl+alt+backspace out to command line, etc. - my mouse also doesn't move at all). I don't know what the problem is. I did everything like I'd do with any other distro!
Anyways, I am sorry but I cannot post my xf86config file on the board because the workstation currently does not have any possible way to get the files to another system. I wish I could because I know it would help people out a lot.
Anyways, all help is greatly appreciated and thanks for any help!
