Running an old p5 with an nvidia gf4. PCLOS 2010 all latest upgrades as of today. Before upgrading, everything was fine, KDE worked well--everything worked well! After update no GUI. The system will eventually give me a command prompt after a long (20 min.) delay during boot. I ran lsmod, no nvidia drivers were listed. Tried modprobe nvidia 96xx and the following is returned:
Fatal: Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg).
The nvidia geforce4 ti 4600 gpu installed in this system is supported through the nvidia 96.43.xx legacy drivers. The 256.53 nvidia driver will ignore this gpu. Continuing probe... No nvidia graphics adapter found!
So obviously the wrong nvidia driver is loading, which doesn't show in lsmod, and is blocking the correct driver from loading. Any ideas would be most welcomed.
PS: I have done my best to RTFM but am either blind or stupid--possibly both.
Thanks very much
