nVidia 7900 GS = X won't start

Postby firba1 » Mon Jul 07, 2008 16:40

I installed Sabayon 3.5 today. It worked fine when I was running the Live DVD, but when I installed it, and booted Sabayon, X would not start. I suspect this is a problem with my nVidia drivers, as I have an Alienware Aurora m9700, which as 2 GeForce 7900 GS nVidia cards with SLI. I world updated 3.5, but I Spritz crashed. Anyone have a solution?
