#335 closed System Defect (fixed)

Display setup wizard crashes with nvidia

Reported by: bitraptor Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: XOrg Configurator Version: 8.1
Keywords: Cc: trac-bugs@…


Display configuration wizard crashes after accepting configuration with nvidia 256.35 driver leaving an empty /etc/tty, see ticket #294
(Maybe it would be safer to overwrite /etc/tty only after critical operations are completed)
Error "link_elf_lookup_symbol missing symbol hash table" displayed on boot while loading nvidia kernel module
Installed nvidia-driver 195.36.15 from the ports or 256.35 from nvidia website work fine - thus (not only) a nvidia problem.
Was working ok with 8.1-RC1, now crashing with 8.1

This should be fixed in 9.0. Note that the NVIDIA driver is no longer part of the base, but should be installed either in the Meta Package selection screen of the installer or using Control Panel -> System Manager -> System Packages -> Hardware Drivers post-installation.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
