If I understand correctly: you used DDM on a machine that has Nvidia drivers installed by sgfxi?
DDM cannot detect other drivers then the ones available in the repositories (yet) so using DDM when you have Nvidia drivers installed through sgfxi is quite risky (as you found out).
Please, add the log file ($HOME/ddm.log) to your post when you run
A note to anyone wanting to try out DDM:
- Code: Select all
DDM is very
experimental. The best results you'll have on a clean install and please, don't use it on your working machine without having a good image to revert to.
Actually no. This has nothing at all to do with ddm (That actually worked wonderfully when I fixed my issue and tested it).
What happened is I downloaded the x64 iso from your website, burned it to a USB disk, and installed it. Now here's where my problem came in.
Normally you have these options at boot
"Normal" - Configured to do nothing special other than boot
From grub. (simplified names, of course).
However, mine were configured like this.
"Normal" - Here's the problem. This was configured under the hood exactly the same as the liveCD's failsafe option. Including noacpi, graphics equal 800x600. The works.
Which is very bad as the failsafe options such as no acpi and the like actually cause my computer to act very bad, including flickering cursor and crashing to terminal if I'm not careful. I had to use the recovery option to bybass the first, boot normally, and edit out all the failsafe options from my grub. Result was plymouth wouldn't load at all, but my system ran just as the liveCD had (Perfectly).
Put in the simplest terms possible, installed the system from your iso, tried to boot, first grub entry was configured as liveCD failsafe instead of normal and caused my system to run like a person trying to sprint through a lake of molasses.EDIT:
Had a hypothesis, tested it, and failed. My issue with grub occurs on both the 32 bit and 64 bit iso
