Hello guys I am a French user,
After installing the nvidia driver ,I have a normal load and then a black screen and loss of the keyboard, how to get a console? antix does not offer a recovery mode unlike other distributions . From grub which commands do I need to enter to get a console to log in as root?
In the grub menu I replaced “ro” by “rw” and go to the end of the line to add init=/bin/bash, then I entered F10 but the loading continues until the black screen. How to prevent startx?

Also, how did you install the nvidia-driver ?February 27, 2019 at 3:38 pm #18933Member
Hello Admin anticapitalista,
Type 3 of the grub menu? you mean the 3rd menu entry? sorry I don’t see.February 27, 2019 at 3:44 pm #18934Forum Admin
Press e key, then you get to edit a line. Scroll to the line that shows
linux /boot/vmlinuz-4.20.12-antix.1-amd64-smp root=UUID=d4885499-24d5-48a8-9efc-acc6558cab18 ro quiet
and add the number 3 to the end
Press F10 to boot.

At the first menu entry type the letter ” e ”
In the screen that shows up then, go to the line which begins with linux
You can use the up and down arrows to get there
Use the right arrow to go to the end of he line
At the end of the line type one space and then 3
Oops, antiC answered allready.

Regarding to your pm you installed the driver with the nvidia-installer from control-centre–>drivers
Without further information (which kernel, which nvidia-card, hardware) not sure what went wrong, but
in the end it should be possible then to deinstall the driver from console with
sudo ddm-mx -p nvidiaMarch 3, 2019 at 1:10 pm #19028Member
thanks for add the number 3 …. I was able to log in as root and run the command
thanks for this great this command line combination ” ddm-mx -p nvidia ” which is very effective and impressiveMarch 3, 2019 at 1:34 pm #19029Member
Imde, it would be nice to know why the installation of the nvidia-driver went wrong for you,
So if you have some time could you post the output of
Also, did you chose the backport-driver ?March 4, 2019 at 10:58 am #19068Member

I did a test with the backport driver : the nvidia module not found
I did a test with the principal driver : no screen found
with the nvidia driver, it seems that I have a screen detection problem with EDID.
I re-installed new driver and created a xorg.conf with a modeline that works well with the new driver.
I reinstalled the nvidia driver and modified the xorg.conf by replacing the new driver in the device section with nvidia. But I still have a black screen when I reboot, I made several unsuccessful attempts…
I’m probably racking my brains for nothing with this old card, because there’s probably an insignificant difference between the performance of the nvidia driver and the new driverMarch 4, 2019 at 11:37 am #19077Member
OK., thanks for answering. This card should be supported by the nvidia-driver 304.137-5-legacy
It sounds like you’re already happy with what you did.
The only thing I could think of what is worth trying, is to try another kernel, maybe builds better against the driver.
You should update your kernel anyway.
At least the 4.9.160-kernel runs nicely together with the 340.107-legacy-driver with a GeForce 8400M on my laptop, and yes I can feel the difference to the nouveau.
Your card is a little bit older, though. There’s maybe not much difference in performance.
