    [RESOLVED] Installing Slackware 14 - freezing graphic


    Hello everyone, I have a PC with a video card nVidia GeForce 6600. I installed Slackware 14. Everything seems to be okay but after a while it freezes the video (graphics mode) and the mouse does not move and most everything else is stuck, forcing me to have to do a hard reset from the PC.
    I've seen that, as in the version 13.37, using the nouveau video driver who already gave problems (but worse than now). Also in this version I have to make the insertion of the module to be blacklisted nouveau and install the nVidia driver ?
    Is there any other solution ?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    If you aren't using the nouveau driver, which nvidia driver are you using?

    I solved everything. After downloading the files from the nVidia site, I followed his instructions. Now I have the problem of video block

    video block? explain please. also, which driver are you using. I am running 319.23, though there may be a newer one on the nvidia site.

    I think that the 6 series boards, such as the 6600 GeForce, are at 304.88. The 8 series, such as my 8800GT are at 319.23. That's what I see on the nVidia web site anyway.
