    Can Not Enable 3D Desktop


    I came prepared:



    I know, I know, there have been many many threads about this issue, but none of the solutions I have read are relevant to my problem.

    As the title says, I cannot enable the 3D desktop feature. It worked in Ubuntu even when it did not detect my graphics card or monitor correctly.

    Mandriva detects my card and monitor correctly but I cannot enable any of these features.

    I have tried installing the proprietary Nvidia drivers but it causes my xserver to crash at boot. Here is a dump of the xorg.conf file. Hopefully you can get something out of this.
