X window CRASHES!
1 Attachment(s)
Hello, I'm relatively new with Linux. I installed the newest drivers of NVIDIA, and I adapted my XF86Config (see attachment) file, but when I restart X window, I get a login prompt for 3 seconds (this is normal), then I see black for a half second (this is still normal) and then I get a login prompt screen again several times (this is NOT normal). Then I see I blue screen with the text: "I cannot start X server (your graphical interface) .... blabla...

and after I few seconds the system crashes totally, only the cursor still goes on and goes out (don't know the english word for that).

Than I tried the folowing: I overwrote the adapted XF86Config file with the one that was included in the installation (XF86Config.sample) and had the same problem again.

I also had installed previous nvidia drivers, but I uninstalled them. I just typed: rpm -e NVIDIA_GLX and rpm -e NVIDIA_GLX and both were successfully uninstalled. DO I have to do more than that?

Hercules 3D Prophet 2 MX (is that the problem?)
CPU: pentium II 350Mhz
Motherboard: I think AOPEN (do I really have to open my computer to check model etc. ?? say if I really have to.

THank you in advance

(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nv_drv.o
(II) Module nv: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
compiled for 4.2.0, module version = 1.0.1
Module class: XFree86 Video Driver
ABI class: XFree86 Video Driver, version 0.5
(II) LoadModule: "mouse"

look at the vendor!

seems that your configfile isn't used, look if there is any other XF86Config(-something)

No, I don't see something else.

henne_flpkp 04-26-03 03:49 PM

I'll try again and send a new log

mtrr 04-26-03 03:53 PM

do you have a copy of the original XF86Config in your home?

the configfile you posted is not used.

have you changed to a non graphic runlevel prior installing
the driver?


henne_flpkp 04-26-03 03:59 PM

Yes, i used runlevel 3 to restore X86Config. But I restored wrong for some reason my backup XF86Config had also nvidia as driver (should be nv). I'll do the procedure again, then I go to windows and transfer the log-file from there, to have a good log-file.
