Nvidia driver causes crash on Mandrake 10.1
Alright some of you may remember me, I posted questions on installing Nvidia driver to Mandrake 10.1 a couple of days ago. Well I managed to get it installed, I changed all the neccessary files and when I typed startx I saw the Nvidia logo then I got a blue screen with a bar 3/4 of the way down and then nothing. I can still move the mouse but I can't do anything else. I've gone through the forums and seen that this problem has been posted by various people but has never been given a definitive cause or answer so any help will be appriciated. Also I have the Xorg.0.log if anybody wants me to post it.

I installed the 6111 driver, I wonder if I uninstalled it and installed the 6629 would make a difference? If I decide to try that how do I uninstall the 6111 driver?

I uninstalled the 6111 driver and installed the 6629 driver. I get the same thing except now the bar says "setting up interproccess communication" before it locks up.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

Your thread in Mandrake ( has the whole story, so I think it's better to keep the discussion going there.

I'm closing this thread.
