tapksa Posted February 13, 2008 Report Share Posted February 13, 2008 (edited) Hi everyone, It seems this problem has been asked everywhere a million times but I haven't found a solution which wouldn't cause my One (Live CD) to shut down. So I decided to post, hope you don't mind. So, after writing this message twice already (both times I ended up searching for a trick that'd help, but none really helped), I'll be brief. Yesterday my Mandriva 2008 found video card driver's updates, and I installed them. Nothing unusual. Today I booted Mandriva for the first time after installing the new drivers, and guess what, it couldn't run the X Server. I just saw a black screen asking me to log in. I logged in as root and typed "kde". All I got was a big bunch of text ending like "cannot run X.org due to missing NVIDIA (something). No screens found." If you need to know what it exactly said, just ask. After that I tried "urpmi nvidia" but it couldn't install anything because a missing kernel-source file (if I remember correctly). I tried "urpmi nvidia" again later and it said that all packages were already installed. I have the Live CD so I can do pretty much everything. I just don't know what to do about my drivers. I tried the FXconfig trick (FXconfig should have installed the correct drivers), but it installed nothing. I'm stuck with bad drivers. If you know what I should do, please help. My video card is GeForce FX 5200. Thank you a million times! -Tapksa P.S It seems I failed at being brief.
