I’m getting into troubles after I updated my workstation to the last kernel version:
[root@linux00 ~]# uname -a Linux linux00 2.6.32-504.12.2.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Sun Feb 1 12:14:02 EST 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
After this update as every time I have to install again the Nvidia drivers for my Nvidia card Quadro FX 3500 and so I downloaded the last available drivers from http://www.nvidia.it. the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-304.88.run, but after installed them the x server doesn’t start. If I try to start it manually with the “startx” command the system hangs and i can only work in text mode by Alt+F2 pressing.
It seems that the only way to make the xserver working is to downgrade to a previous version of ABI driver until Nvidia will release drivers for Quadro FX 3500 that supports ABI 15.0.
Can anybody suggest any alternative or tell me if are there Nvidia drivers that work fine with Quadro FX 3500 linux redhat 6.6 and ABI 15.0?
Thank you in advance,
