mandrake linux 9.1 and 1.0-4349
1 Attachment(s)
First of all, sorry for my english, because it's very bad.........

I have a creative GForce2 MX 200 with a PIII 1000 runing on a Mandreake 9.1 and I have a problem with the 1.0-4349 released drivers. Once installed, the xserver doesn't start, and have this error in /var/log/messages:

Fatal server error:

Some one have a idea? Then if I do 'lsmod' , I see that the nvidia module haven't been loaded.

I atached my XF86config-4

so load it. add "nvidia" line in your /ect/modules.
or manually "modprobe nvidia" if you have it compiled

thanks but.............
when the linux is loaded, but de x doesn't start, I tape lsmod, and I see that the module isn't loaded, then I load the module with 'modprobe nvidia' then I tape 'lsmod' and I see that the module is loaded, then I tape 'startx' with the vervose option and the x server doesn't start. It show this error:

(EE) [GLX]: Failed to add GLX extension (NVIDIA XFree86 driver not found)

Some one knows why?

I had a similar problem on Mandrake 9.1.

It turned out that I needed to do this in my BIOS:

PNP OS <-- set to NO
Assign IRQ for VGA <-- set to yes

Then it worked fine :D
