    Try useing:
    Code:
    rm -r {dirname} removes direcetory and everything in it
    Use this to remove any of the drivers direcetories.

    or maybe with the drivers source:
    Code:
     ./configure
    make
    make uninstall

    You don't have to uninstall it. Just change the Driver option from 'nvidia' to 'nv' in you X configuration file.

    Yes, i tried to change the X configuring file, but the Driver "nvidia" line didn't appear over there. Let me recheck that and i'll get back to you.

    I doesn't appear there, if you want, i can paste my entire file so maybe you can check it out. It's a bit long but i'm sure it helps. It's the etc/X11/XF86Config file. Umm, there's a line in the log file, /var/log/XFree86.0.log, that says:
    Code:
    (==) Using config file: "/etc/X11/XF86Config-4"
    I guess this is the file i have to edit changing Driver "nv" to Driver "nvidia". I am so confused. Here's the link from nvidia that i am reading to set this up.ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li...629/README.txt

    I FIXED IT!!! THANKS EVERYBODY :P
