Re: [linux-dell-laptops] NVIDIA Display drivers
- Did you follow the nvidia install instuctions word for
word? because I am thinking that you did the sh
nvidia-blah-blah-5336... but you did not edit the
XF86Config and comment out dri from the modules
section and glx to it.
copy/paste your XF86Config here. or the modules
Also, if this problem is happening prior to you even
getting into linux (which I think it is) you will
want to change your user level. I assume you are using
grub, so hit "e" on the kernel you are having problems
with then hit e again so you can edit that line and
put the word "single" in there. Then hit b to boot
that kernel. That should put you into single user mode
where it doesnt load any modules. Hopefully you should
get to a prompt.
hope this helps
