Okay, I've exhausted every google search I can think of, and not getting
anywhere, so now to ask ...
Just upgraded my motherboard / CPU (old one fried out) ... picked up an
ASUS P5Q with a Quad Core Intel CPU ... everything boots / runs fine,
until I try and start up X ...
If I use the 'nv' driver in my X conig file, and the twm window manager,
everything starts up fine, I can load Firefox, etc, etc ...
As soon as I switch from nv -> nvidia and start, the screen goes blank and
the machine reboots ...
If I switch from nvidia -> nv and use '/usr/local/kde4/bin/startkde', the
screen goes blank, and the machine reboots ...
I just installed icewm, and using that, everything loads up fine too ...
So, I figure there is something that I'm either missing in my install, or
that I've configured wrong that kde is trying to use, but I'm at a lose as
to what ...
Can anyone help?
