I've just set up my new box and i'm having some trouble with the nvidia glx drivers. I'm running gentoo on a amd barton 2500+ box with 512 mb of ddram on an epox 8rda+ mobo (nforce2 SPP + nforce2 mcp-t) and a Leadtek Winfast A280LE graphics card (geForce4 Ti4200 with agp 8x and 128mb ram).
emerge xfree
xfree -configure
(card works well with nv driver)
emerge nvidia-kernel
emerge nvidia-glx
modified /etc/X11/XF86config so that it will use nvidia driver and load glx.
fired up x and all i got was a textmode screen (at least my display's osd said it was 720x400@70Hz, and thatz textmode) with some really weird characters on it (actually they looked more like randomly placed pixels, not characters). Checked out the xfree log and everything loads up okay, no EE lines, no nothing. the nvidia driver loads properly and detects the correct modes for my display. still i get no picture. ctrl-alt-backspace does nothing. however the system is not locked because i can reboot it with ctrl-alt-del (and it does a clean reboot).
help! 8O
