    Default Help -- (startx) No -screen found

    Hi, I recently tried to install the Nvidia driver 9800gt and I do a quick reboot then this message appears. I am not too sure what to do next..
    I followed a guide here : http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...ce-tree-2.html .

    The screenshot you have included is too small to read, have you got a larger version or could you paste the log file into pastebin?
    Have you...g0tmi1k?

    What specs are you running? THere are solutions in the forums for intel nvidia and radeon...
    World Domination is such an ugly phrase. I prefer the term World Optimization.

    Hi there,

    Have you tried 'fixvesa' at the command line and then 'startx' again?
