1.3 Install Slackware using tagfiles

  • In console mode again modify the system options so the linux kernel native NVidia video driver is not loaded automatically after reboot (it cause TV blanking without additional tweaking)
    root@slackware:~#joe /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

  • Use the arrow keys to navigate to the bottom of the joe text editor window where you need to append the following line
    blacklist nouveau
    Your final screen should be similar to the following

  • Press Ctrl+K and then X to save the file and exit joe

  • Restart the HTPC by issuing the reboot command in console


Btw, if you encounter any problems during this process drop me a note...

Now, let's move on to chapter 2 (or three if you're just looking for the pre-compiled packages)
