Solved: Nvidia GeForce2 MX400 Driver Upgrade = Blank Screen!
Wait for him to provide the data on the nv driver, but if you check "lsmod" you either should not find "nv" listed, or it isn't available in 14.04 . . I now am running Xu 12.04 with an nv driver that I compiled following the ubuntu PPC wiki . . . but, a long time ago. I've successfully installed 12.10 on my flowerpot, but can't get x to run for the life of me. weblink

So I have a very minimal NetBSD install, with just twm as a window manager. Disabling Driver Signature Enforcement on Windows 8 / Windows 8.1 By default, both Windows 8.1 and Windows 8 do not allow unsigned drivers to install. but in terms of the "retro-nv" install process that I followed from the PPC wiki . . .
So for anyone using the same card, be careful with these drivers. Meaning if it wasn't a "PPC" .iso . . . ??? rsavage was offering an .iso with the pre-compiled nv driver there, but had to take it down. TD912, Jun 24, 2008 #8 Sponsor This thread has been Locked and is not open to further replies.
