    Slack 10 + Framebuffer + nVIDIA Drivers

    At the CLI I get fuzz (well the closest description) if I have the nVIDIA X module installed. I thought recompiling my kernel without the rivafb should take care of it, but no.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    Have you tried changing the color depth for the framebuffer?

    By installed you mean 'insmod'ed or 'startx'ed? I have the same problem, but only after I startx.

    This is a known problem with the nvidia drivers and a framebuffer.
    Running X with the vesa or nv driver works fine.

    I gave up on framebuffer and nvidia, just could never get it working right.
