nvidia does not work with kernel26beyond

i was able to use the beyond kernel on computer with sis video card, but when trying beyond kernel on computer with nvidia-legacy driver, x will not start, it simply goes to first virtual console after boot. how can i fix this? is it possible?

Boot beyond
pacman -Sy nvidia
ensure its the nvidia -16

yes thank you, that worked, although it just reinstalled the same nvidia-legacy package.

that's the way nvidia package works
you could add nvidia to DAEMONS= list then it is rebuild if something changed automatically

Re: nvidia does not work with kernel26beyond

is it ok if nvidia is the last daemon, and backgrounded:
...@nvidia) ? i think this was how it was when i installed beyond.

Re: nvidia does not work with kernel26beyond

backgrounding is not a good idea, because then x startup can fail
