    Pissed Off: NVidia Driver not working..


    After I edit my x.org config file and change "nv" to "nvidia", and remove Load "dri", i startx, and theni get an error about my chipset not being supported(i didnt get to x either). I said well, ok, so i went to the nvidia site and looked at the readme. it figured mine wasnt supported for that release, so i looked at an older one. my card was on the list. Still, same problem. Can someone help? It works with the "nv" driver but not the "nvidia" driver. I tried li0ke 5 other releases to and i got the same problem

    Could you post the error in its entirety, please? It could be that it's referring to the AGP chipset rather than the GPU. If that's the case, you may want to experiment with the "NvAGP" setting in your xorg.conf (see the nVidia README for more info). Remember to load or unload the agpgart module depending on the setting you're trying out.
