I installed kmod-nvidia-96xx-188.8.131.52-73.fc9.i686-96.43.09-1.fc9.6.i686 yesterday. After rebooting, the X server started correctly, but at the welcome login screen, my screen goes black for a bit whenever anything on the display changes. After logging in, the problem remains, plus my text is somewhat garbled.
There are no error messages in /var/log/Xorg.0.log. The only error messages I could find were in /var/log/messages:
kernel: NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 8, Channel 00000000
kernel: NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 13, ...
kernel: NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 3, C ...
I was unable to figure out what these errors mean. Apparently NVIDIA is less than forthcoming about these error codes. I have tried turning AIGLX and Composite options off, but this makes no difference. Anybody else having this problem? Any solution ideas?
I am using a GeForce4 MX 4000 card and an AMD Athlon CPU.
