NVIDIA KERNEL Problem
Today is the first day I have ever used linux. Installed Mandrake 9.0 on my Dell 8200 which has a Geforce 4. However as everyone knows the video doesn't work. So I download the patch and execute. Selected Geforce4 and 1024x16bit in XFdrake, closed, then typed startx. It opens and everything is great. I then reboot and get an error that says:
failed to initialize the nvidia kernel module!
Screens found but none have a usable config
Fatal error no screens found
XIO Fatal io 104 connection reset by peer on X server...
So I have no idea what I am doing, I got it to work again by reinstalling, but once i reboot, it stopped working again. What do I need to do? Thanks in advance. IM me if you know how to fix this JJacob983
post your xf86config file and xfree86.0.log file and we'll see if we can troubleshoot whats going on..
Did you run the installer in failsafe mode?
If so, don't do that. :D Oh, and then do the following.
But even if that's not how you installed it, the following should still fix it for you:
Add a line to /etc/modules.conf reading alias /dev/nvidia* nvidia, save and exit, and run /sbin/depmod -ae as root.
Next time you reboot, the error shouldn't come back.
ok so I tried bwkazs suggestions of changing the file actually seem to of happened before i did them... So I am attaching the 2 files here to help someone try and figure this out. Thanks.
