Quote from: "murat"
You can build the latest version of nvidia drivers and at the and you will have 3 pisi packages called "nvidia-kernel", "nvidia-glx" and "nvidia-tools". After instaling these pisi packages just give the the command nvidia-xconfig as root.
Code:
sudo pisi build http://svn.pardus.org.tr/pardus/devel/kernel/drivers/nvidia/pspec.xml

Code:
sudo pisi it *.pisi

Code:
nvidia-xconfig


With Pardus 1.1 CSE I tried this, I have a nVidia 6500 512Mb viedeocard, but after this, the screen just stays black, and the only thing I can do it to select the default settings again...

Hallo:
        Just joined and am a new comer to linux.(newbie)
        The nvidia problem is alive and well with me
        Its a no-go. Screen goes blank. Install went okay
        but does not recognise the kernel because nv doesnt =nvidia
        Unfortunately I cant change anything because of no permission
        thing.

        I have tried this 3 times and same results.
        Tired of getting the system setup, downloading updates
        and additions, only to do it all over again.

        I followed the instructions that were laid out so nicely
        in the forum.

        I suppose i could stick with the nv, but would the other
        nvidia kernel not be better?

        The motherboard here has a built-in Nvidia G-Force 6100
        video system.
 
        So does anyone know how to overcome all this nvidia problem.
        Advise please to get out of the dark-crash mode.

TIA,
pardus.ca :?  :?

Hallo Murat and all;
                                Got some results here. You can look and advise.
Installed pardus again and downloaded many updates.. I have not rebooted yet to see if it picks up the nvidia card. If it does not, I guess its the vertical-horizontal numbers ??

Back again>
                When rebooting my machine it went directly to a screen
showing the pardus symbol at the top , and then made an attempt to
bring up the nvidia software, and failed, showing a black screen.

Now I have no boot prompt. Is there a short way around this?,
or do I have to reinstall and update for the 6th time (yes, I am persistent)

Then comes the question the settings . I am using a Medion 15 inch LCD;
the refresh rate is 70hz; vertical-horizontal resolution settings I dont know? Besides this I thnk there are a couple of other things not set correctly. The monitor is a Medion model MD5407QA

Help here is really needed. Waiting patiently

Regards,

Hi,

First of all, your kernel is out of date, so you should update it.
If you install all the updates, be sure that you won't encounter any problem with nvidia on Pardus.
If you alredy updated the system and kernel, you should edit /boot/grub/grub.conf file.
I can explain it in another post when you updated the system.

You can always press CRTL+ALT+F2

But with the newest drivers, kernel etc I still dont have my NVidia card running.

its very easy my friend  Cool

run konsole and type down or copy paste following

Code:
sudo pisi ur

Code:
sudo pisi it nvidia-kernel nvidia-glx nvidia-tools

Code:
sudo nvidia-xconfig



note : it will ask a password, it is your user pasword ( not superuser )

then ctrl+alt+backspace to run your driver. if you see nvidia logo means it's working.


I did this also but no video on TV, on monitor everything is oke..

Use nvidia-settings to setup your tv out.
