    !Nvidia Drivers!

    Hi, I have installed the Nvidia drivers for My Geforce II GTS several times now. I can install it fine, I have done it from an rpm and a source package, but each time I get the same problem... When I reboot, it loads linux allright, then it almost gets to the kde login screen then it starts blinking nonstop. I can not log-in or anything. Does any one know how to fix this? So far, the only thing I could do is reinstall linux and start over again.... Also, is there a way I could at least get into the command line prompt so I could get to my etc/X11/XF86Config and set it back to the generic drivers? I am new to linux and any help would be nice. -Thanks

    sounds like theres a problem with your XF86config file.
    if you use lilo, you can type linux 3 at the boot to go into text mode and edit the config file

    Or you could wait until the blinking stops (a couple of minutes)and it will put you at the command prompt (i dunno it did when i had troubles). Said something like X was spawning too fast.

    Its better to regret something you have done than to regret something you havent done :P
