Display Driver(NVIDIA) crashes on boot up (RH8.0)


hi,

I had successfully installed RH8 on my Laptop(DELL2650)with Win-XP overcoming all the "NIVIDIA driver" problems,but it seems to have crashed again(after a year +)
On Boot up,it shows the NVIDIA logo and tries to log in but fails .
Is there a way I can log into grub on boot up or some command line and fix the problem?

Thanks
Sulabh

Question RH8 crashes on boot up

hey experts,

I need help on this urgently.I had RH8 installed on my Dell Laptop(Dell Inspirion 2650) for quite sometime.
One Fine day ,it fails to boot up on the account of NVIDIA display driver.All I can see the NVIDIA LOGO and it never logs in ,so I am unable to get into the linux however i try it.

The only access i have it to the "GRUB" boot loader.
Is there any way I can get into linux ?? ??atleast the prompt screen and fix the problem which i presume is bcos of the display driver.

guess the experts wud reply to this ASAP.

Thanks
Sulabh

add "init 1" or "init=1" to the grub entry. this should boot linux run level 1, which should be a root login. from there, you should be able to get to the console and try to fivure what's what. you should be able to switch to the generic "nv" driver.

/var/log/

In /var/log should be an x log, I am on a borrowed virus machine, so am not sure, but it might be xf86.0.log or something similar. In runlevel 1 or 3 (both should work) you can do:

cat /var/log/xf86.0.log | less

and read that log. Any lines with EE in front will be most important. q to quit less.

I had a similar problem when installing Drake 10.0 and had no clue. My problem turned out to be failure to backup the XF86Config-4 file, and the one I found did not install a font that was present on the download Drake so it gave a blank screen thus crash. The first time It did not mention font, but I tried a bunch of different stuff and one of them gave a font error.

I ended up reinstallling 9.1 since 10.0 download cannot seem to handle a log-out change to vga mode, with the latest drivers from Nvidia, though the pay version seems to do ti which makes me think it is a font issue...

aha... find the font

i'd back up the xfree config file
i.e. mv /etc/X11/XF86Config /etc/X11/XF86Config.old

and try running the xfree config script,
xf86config

if you don't know them, you should review the config file for some of the settings (i.e. montor refresh rates).

you could simply edit the offedning line in the xfree config file, but i can't say i'm well versed enough to pick out the line, nor the possible replacement.
