I just installed Slack 13.1 so it is huge smp kernel.

Code:
[root@darkstar ~]$ uname -r 
2.6.33.4-smp
And as I said 173.14.25 can be installed without problem, so kernel source is there. It's just that 173.14.22 can't find them for some reason.

Edit:
Heck, again this black screen after logging out!

Just don't get it... I tried with generic kernel and initrd kombination. WIth generic I can't even install 173.14.25

/var/log/nvidia-installer.log

With 173.14.22 and huge kernel:

/var/log/nvidia-installer.log

I had this problem once when I was using current after a kernel update
with the 76 driver series.

Updating the driver with a beta one with improved compatibility with recent Linux kernels worked.

I never bothered to try and figure out why the older one stopped working.

I have same problem with the driver (Slack13.1-32)
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-190.53-pkg1.run

I use the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-195.36.24-pkg1.run
in Slack13.1-32 without problems ...

I think this is due to a mismatch between kernel and driver ...

I had the same experience. You have to use 173.14.25 with Slackware 13.1's kernel.

You need to edit /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc. Uncomment the line which says:

TerminateServer=true

That fixed it for me.

There should be a similar option available for slim.

You can fix it with xdm by adding this line to your xdm-config:
Code:
DisplayManager._0.terminateServer: true

Is that for xdm or for slim?

That's for xdm, like it says...

Surely there would be a similar option for slim?

And a few minutes' Googling has yielded the answer:

See here:
http://slim.berlios.de/manual.php
and here for which argument/s to use:
http://www.xfree86.org/current/Xserver.1.html

I just thought maybe slim is using xdm.

I added
Code:
xserver_arguments -terminate
into slim.conf

Thanks rkelsen, I would never find this myself, I was searching for
Terminate Server combination. :-) So far so good.

Another problem I encountered was that the screen would be cut off when playing games in fullscreen mode.

I resolved it by putting this line into /etc/X11/xorg.conf under "Device"
Code:
Option  "ModeValidation" "DoubleScanPriority"
Note: This suggestion was found on another forum.
