Blank screen when starting X after installing kyro powervr graphics driver


Hi All

Im new to all this so bear with me.

Im trying to install the correct driver for my PowerVR Kyro Based graphics card. I have run the rpm (rpm - Uvh powervr-2.00.20-516.rh90.athlon.rpm) i downloaded from imagination technologies and i have modified the xfree86config file in the way the readme file lays out but im having no joy. After modifying this file i try and restart the GUI (X) and my monitor just flicks to a blank screen and i can no longer do anything but restart and change the config file using redhat-config-xfree86

Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.


Im running

Athlon XP 2400
512 DDR
32Mb Hercules Prophet Graphic Card

Have a look at the file /var/log/XFree86.0.log. The lines are labelled according to the type of information they contain. Are there any errors or warnings in there?

Are you sure you installed the right driver package to match your current kernel?

Searching on 'kyro' in this forum brings up quite a few people having problems with this driver. If you are sure you have the right driver package I think that would be the best place to look.

If you put 'kyro' or 'powervr' in the thread title I think you might have more luck finding someone with specific expertise.
