Black screen after install nvidia-driver with sbopkg


Hi all guys...I am still in trouble with nvidia...

this is the information:

kernel 3.10.17
driver version: 331.20
my graphic card: nvidia geForce gt 520m

This time I tried to install nvidia-driver with sbopkg and it says me that I should type
Code:
make oldconfig && make prepare
in my kernel source directory...So I done it and tried to reinstall the driver...
The installation has complete, but when I try to start X with startx a black screen is what I have...I can hear even the "welcome sound" of kde, but I can see nothing but the black screen with a white underscore in the top-left corner...the only way to start X again is to execute xorgsetup firstly...What can I try?

You don't have to run that. All you really have to do is run the SlackBuild scripts and install the package generated for both the driver and kernel module packages. Edit xorg.conf to change the driver module from nouveau or nv, to nvidia, blacklist nouveau, and reboot.

Yes..it works...I done it exactly in that order and now it seems work because if I type
Code:
lsmod|grep nvidia
I can see that the nvidia driver seems to be loaded correctly:
Code:
nvidia              10571169  31 
drm                   229054  5 i915,drm_kms_helper,nvidia
i2c_core               20936  8 drm,i915,i2c_i801,i2c_dev,drm_kms_helper,i2c_algo_bit,nvidia,videodev
Am I right?

Thank you man...
