HELP! Driver "nvidia" Crashes X -- RedHat 8.0 / 2.4.18-14
Howdy Folks...I've recently bought an NVidia GeForce2 MX 400 graphics board for my Gateway e5200 computer. I can't get the "nividia" driver to work--only the "nv" driver that comes with Red Hat does. I've downloading both the last rpms for the driver and GLX as well as the latest unified driver. I can get the driver to install properly, but when I change the driver in my XF86Config file from "nv" to "nvidia" the X server freezes on startup with a blank screen. The driver is loaded and the /dev/nvidia* driver files are present. The video board and drivers work fine with Windows 98 but do my graphics development work with OpenGL on Linux. Recompiling the NVidia kernel rpm package didn't work either. I'd like to get this to work...any suggestions?

Hi Guys...I tried using the 4363 unidriver again and installed it in expert mode. It seems that the driver was working but I discovered by accident that it takes several minutes to bring the X server up and running after typing the "startx" commmand. I've attached copies of my XF86Config file and log files to this message.

i didn't read this thread but there may be a resolvment in it, it deals with the very slow x startup...and also one more thing i would like to point out, is that you are using the "Option NvAgp" but you did not assign it a value....the acceptable values are 0 - 3... http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...=&threadid=416
