I just tried to compile and install 9625 version of nvidia driver
(downloaded from nvidia web site).

No problem to compile, no problem to install.... but not working: screen
remains black while booting in level 5 or in level 3 then using startx...

does anybody have the same problem?


Thank you! It is now working. I removed the eeprom module. What is this module? I put it in my /etc/rc.local after running sensors-detect but it seems to be unused by my system... I had alse to disable lm_sensors services to prevent the loading of this module, so I don't know for what these services are useful.

Thanks for helping.
