Hi all,
I will appreciate any help on getting X up and running. I've installed Debian Etch on an Asus A8SC-B1 with a GeForce 8400M. I've followed the nvidia instructions for installing the 169.09 driver. But,

modprobe nvidia
results in
Error inserting nvidia (/lib/modules/2.6.18-5-amd64/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko): Invalid module format

startx
results in
Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11. Server aborting

XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server "0.0" after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

Anyone know how to fix this? thanks

Should probably post this thread in the Nvidia Linux (http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=14) forum as well.
