Slackware 9.0 again...
 
Hello, ive read many problems about slackware 9.0. I installed the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4363.run driver without any problems, it had to build the driver from my kernel sources. I loaded the nvidia driver with modprobe nvidia. Then I edited the XF86Config:
Code:

Section "Module"
    Load        "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so" #also tried load "glx"
    Load        "dbe"

    SubSection  "extmod"
      Option    "omit xfree86-dga"
    EndSubSection

    Load        "type1"
    Load        "speedo"
EndSection

Section "Files"
    RgbPath        "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
    FontPath        "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/local/"
    FontPath        "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/"
    FontPath        "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/:unscaled"
    FontPath        "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/:unscaled"
    FontPath        "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo/"
    FontPath        "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/"
    FontPath        "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/"
    FontPath        "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier        "Keyboard1"
    Driver        "Keyboard"
    Option "AutoRepeat" "500 30"
    Option "XkbRules"        "xfree86"
    Option "XkbModel"        "pc101"
    Option "XkbLayout"        "us"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
    Identifier        "Mouse1"
    Driver        "mouse"
    Option "Protocol"    "IMPS/2"
    Option "Device"      "/dev/mouse"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier  "My Monitor"
    HorizSync  30-70
    VertRefresh 50-160
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "NVIDIA GeForce"
    Driver      "nvidia"
    BusID      "PCI:2:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier  "Screen 1"
    Device      "NVIDIA GeForce"
    Monitor    "My Monitor"
    DefaultDepth 24

    Subsection "Display"
        Depth      8
        Modes      "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        ViewPort    0 0
    EndSubsection
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth      16
        Modes      "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        ViewPort    0 0
    EndSubsection
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth      24
        Modes      "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        ViewPort    0 0
    EndSubsection
EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier  "Simple Layout"
    Screen "Screen 1"
    InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice "Keyboard1" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

Then I tried to do startx, but it crashed. All I see is weird ascii/ansi chars on my screen. ctrl+alt+backspace isnt working, so I had to reboot. I checked /var/log/XFree86.0.log but it contains the same weird chars, so there is no need to post my log here.
I also tried this: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...ighlight=kt400 but that also didnt help.
[edit]hmm, my epox doesnt have a kt400 chipset. I confused it with my other mobo :)[/edit]

My specs: Amd Athlon XP 1900+, Epox 8rda+, Asus GeForce 4 MX440-SE

Which motherboard BIOS are you using?

Anything newer than 3129 (IIRC) is broken. Epox knows about the problem, and the next BIOS release is supposed to fix whatever the problem is. But for now, downgrade to 3129 if you can.
