  1. Have you tried using an older nvidia driver like the 1.0-5336 or 1.0-5328? There might be a compatibility problem with your hardware and Mdk 10
  2. Try editing out the "code=437" line in fstab and see if that makes a difference. What is that option for anyway?
  3. Take a look at this link, discussing the same problem as yours

    Screen adjustments

    That might be a good place to start, but it won't solve the problem. I have this issue when booting between slackware and Mdk too. My "solution" is just move the screen into place each time
  5. According to this article, Asus is not keen on Linux or open-source in general http://www.mozillaquest.com/Linux04/Asus_Sucks_Story-02.html I don't buy Asus products anyway because I think they're overpriced, but I'd rather buy from a company that supports open source
  6. Do "lsmod" in terminal to see what modules are being loaded and post the results. In general, you need to install your kernel source, as root installpkg kernel-source-2.4.26-noarch-4.tgz if you're using the default kernel. Download the nvidia drivers (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6106-pkg1.run) from this page and install with sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6106-pkg1.run as root. Edit /etc/X11/xorg/conf to look like this: In the "Modules" section, uncomment the Load "GLX" line In the "Graphics Device Section", change "driver to "nvidia" I think you said you had done all this, but you mentioned "rivafb", which sounds like an old nvidia card, maybe the wrong file was downloaded Hope you make some headway with this
  7. I have the same card (chipset) as you running slack 10 with nvidia drivers. If you don't have the nvidia drivers set up you should still be able to run X using the default configuration I don't know which Mag Innovision you have, but the lowest model has frequency 30-70kHz horizontal and 50-130Hz vertical. Edit your /etc/Xorg.conf file and put those values in the monitor section. You could probably put in higher values, but leave that until you know which model monitor you have. If you have nvidia drivers working, change the Xorg.conf file accordingly (module "nvidia", enable GLX, etc). I'm not in Linux right now, so I can't be more specific. If you don't have nvidia working, use the "nv" or "vesa" module with GLX disabled. See if that makes a difference. If not, post again
  8. Enlightenment for me too, running on KDE base

    Chroot problem

    I used chroot on a different partition some time ago (details are hazy), and since then I've had a few problems. My Mdk partition is hdb1 and I have a slackware partition on hdb8. Whenever I use locate to find a file in Mdk, it searches the slack partition too. Also, I had a xauthority error in Mdk, where I lost write ability to my homedir, so I rebooted to slack to research the problem on the net and found the same error there too. The two partitions seem to be bound together. How can I separate them? fstab for reference /dev/hdb1 / ext3 defaults 1 1 none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0 /dev/hdb5 /home ext3 defaults 1 2 /dev/hda5 /mnt/92home ext3 defaults 1 2 none /mnt/cdrom supermount dev=/dev/hdd,fs=auto,--,user,defaults 0 0 none /mnt/floppy supermount dev=/dev/fd0,fs=auto,--,umask=0,user,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,codepage=850 0 0 /dev/hdb4 /mnt/mepishome ext3 defaults 1 2 /dev/hdb3 /mnt/mepisroot ext3 defaults 1 2 /dev/hdb9 /mnt/slackhome reiserfs defaults 1 2 /dev/hdb8 /mnt/slackroot reiserfs defaults 1 2 /dev/hdb10 /mnt/slacktest reiserfs defaults 1 2 /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat umask=0,iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850 0 0 none /proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/hdb6 /usr ext3 defaults 1 2 /dev/hdb7 swap swap defaults 0 0 [moved from Software by spinynorman]
  11. As root /etc/init.d/networking restart or ifconfig eth0 down ifconfig eth0 up

    Keyboard issues...

    If you're using KDE, go to the KDE Control Center-Accessibility-Keyboard Shortcuts Select the Command Shortcuts tab In the window below, choose Multimedia-Graphics-Ksnapshot In the bar below thw window, choose Custom When the pop-up window pops up, hit the key you want to be the shortcut (print screen) and do Apply, OK, etc The same method applies to any other shortcuts you might want to add

    bootsplash - solved

    It's always a good idea to post the solution - that way you help someone else who may have the same problem B)
  14. Maybe you compiled your / filesystem as a module in the kernel. eg if you're using reiserfs for your / partition, it must be compiled into the kernel, not as a module
  15. I think it's a two part solution. Go to MCC and look for the "Display Manager" section (I don't remember where it is in 9.1). Choose "KDM" Then in KDE Control Center-Components-Session Manager, check "Confirm Logout" and choose whatever other options you want there. Changes will only take place after reboot. The dragon is part of KDE desktop manager
