Thread: Black screen after installing SLES 10 SP2

    Default Black screen after installing SLES 10 SP2

    I just installed SLES 10 with SP2. After the first reboot, it started booting up normally, then when it was supposed to bring up X, I just got a black screen. I thought I might have to install an NVidia driver to fix this, but there is no lynx or links text-based web browsing program, so I can't download the driver. I have a GeForce 7300. I can boot with "safe mode" but not normally. Does anyone know how I can boot into graphical mode?

    I found out that you can put "apm=off acpi=off" in the options before booting and it will boot into KDE. I have a question though: what's the difference whether I use Open Suse or SLES? If I want to host my own website from my home PC, can I do that with Open Suse? If so, I'll just keep using Open Suse.

    Aha. I'm going to answer my own question again. I found these articles, which explain how to set up a web server that you host yourself.

    HowTo: Configure a Linux Apache Web Server on Suse/openSUSE for SSI, Includes, CGI, Common Gateway Interface, AddHandler, ExecCGI, AllowOverride, htaccess, DocumentRoot
    SuSE webserver

    Although I doubt the university will allow me to host a web server from my own machine. They probably have port 80 blocked.

    Hi
    Sax2 -r -m 0=vesa should help.

    Use wget if you want the proprietary driver;

    http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...14.09-pkg2.run
    or
    http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...14.09-pkg1.run

    On another note, you should look at posting in forums.novell.com as
    this is an openSUSE forum.
