    Require help with nVidia drivers installation (again)


    Hi all, I am having huge problems installing the Nvidia drivers on my Linux machine. I have tried both the 4191 and 3123 versions. I have used the tar versions with no success.
    I have tried the source rpm's now because they can be uninstalled and have my computer restored to the default setting ie in working order.
    All the installations go smoothly (from init 3), but once I startx my computer freezes with no image on the screen at all, just a black screen. I am using Mandrake 9.0 (Dolphin) on an AMD Duron 1G, with a 64Mb Leadtek GeForce2 MX400 and a 17" Samsung SyncMaster 753DFX. PnP OS in the BIOS has always been disabled by default. When using the src.rpm's, the rpm gets loaded into the folder /usr/src/RPM/RPMS/i586, but Mandrake tells me my machine is an i686. Could this be a source of problems? I'm not convinced it is as the tar's give me the same net resultand don't go near those directories.
    For your info, these are the driver packages I'm trying to use:
    NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.src.rpm
    NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4191.src.rpm

    and also tried to use:

    NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-4191.tar.gz
    NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-4191.tar.gz and the 3123 equivalents.

    I also tried starting X with depth of 8, 15 and 16, and resolutions of 800*600 and 1024*768.

    I have followed the instructions to the letter ("nv" to "nvidia") and also other advice (adding "alias char-major-10-175 agpgart" to /etc/modules.conf)

    Here is a copy of /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 for your perusal, I hope you can see something glaringly obvious.

    I appreciate the time you are taking to read this and hope you can help.
    Cheers, John

    I know one thing, namely that it's not because the tars are i586. i686 is backwards compatible with i586.
    One small suggestion: Have you removed the dri and GLcore modules from your XF86Config-4?

    nvidia probs

    G'day Dolda, those two entries were not present in that config file in the first place. This has me stumped. I have read other posts where installation went as smooth as silk for some and a nightmare for others, I'm in the latter category.

    If you try and start just X manually, does it say something about being terminated due to a symbol in the end?

    comment out the line that loads glx, see if that makes it work. glx might not be working correctly with your card.

    I'll give that a go

    Thx wassy, I'll try that. Firstly though, I really have to get some sleep!!!
    Dolda, negative on "does it say something about being terminated due to a symbol in the end"

    Cheers, John

    What did I write?! I meant signal, not symbol. (Sorry, I was debugging at the time)
