I unfortuatly allways had NVidia graphics controlers which means that I
allways had problem with the graphics driver(s), which means too that I
allways had troubles since OSS 10.3 (ten.three).
Today, it is:
KInfoCenter- OpenGl- Rendering: GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a/integrated/SSE2
I actualy run 12.2 + KDE3.5 starting in console mode, which permits me to
re-enter commands until the driver starts in 1280x1024. Most of the time, I
dont neads to do so, but sometime, I have to réinit up to 5 times (AFAIR).
But I can live with this. It is realy exeptional (today) that the pilot
crashs, with the special freezed sceen AND freezed system.
But since the last tries of 13.1 (at least), this frezing appens. I guess
that this is due to my hardware that is not as popular as labtop's, and thats
why the distribution continue leaving with such a buggy driver.
So, the second try of the istallation had been succeessfull thanks to
the "brokenmodules=nouveau" placed in the command line. After having
edited "/etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf", the graphics system does'nt work.
Indead, I did not remember if the screen resolution was OK (1280x1024)
because the system crashed (freezed) quickely.
I installed the proprietary driver: NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.123.run. It
looks working correctly after the second restart.
I started writing this mail before the proprietary driver to be installed.
So I have no question. I hope that the free version of these this material
will finaly be functional.
Thanks for thoses maintaining KDE.
