Hi guys,


anyone managed to install the latest nvidia-drivers with the new 4.4.1 rt-kernel and actually get into X ?


Everytime I start X I only get to a blank screen (e.g. startx == screen is blank),

there is a signal since the screen doesn't turn off (standby),

but it still somehow doesn't work

tested:

361.18-r4
358.16-r4


Every feedback is welcome !

Thanks :)

you could try a stable kernel, but you say proprietary drivers?

Hi oscarandrea,


yes x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers , the proprietary modules from nvidia,

nouveau works fine - but with it certain games silently fail (e.g. SW KOTOR2 - it just runs and doesn't display)


an older kernel is out of question since I'm using latest Btrfs features :(

x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-352.79-r3 works just fine with gentoo-sources-4.4.1 here. Do't see why it wouldn't with -rt too.

(newer ones have issues with setting the proper resolution in X, probably due to their work on supporting kms)
