have to force loading nvidia.o with insmod, to have X
 
sevral days I tried to install 4363 nvidia drivers on a based "woody" debian distro

Then it works, but not fully...

Details config:

-Bi athlon 1800
-asus a7m266D
-scsi
-gf 4600 ti 128
-Iiyama TXA3813MT (LCD) on vga out
-custom kernel 2.4.19

Symptoms:

I have to do an "insmod" to obtain Xserver

-XF86Config.log notices:

-(EE) screen(s) found, but none have usable configuration,

if I just do a "startx", before "insmod" nvidia.o, and

-(EE) failed to load GLX,

when I load nvidia.o manually....(with success)

I tried many and many synch and refresh values unsuccessly, and d'ont see what Icould do more...

My XF86Config-4 was correctly edited, with "nvidia" instead "ati", removed load "GLcore" & "dri", and verif load "glx" presence...

SOS, please

On debian you need to add "nvidia" to /etc/modules to load the driver at startup.

Good luck :)

Hey !!! It works fine !!!

Many thanks, Thunderbird !!!

But I always have my problem with "glx", witch failed to be load, as my XFconfig.log says ....

Is it necessary to post it ???

PS: I saw that /usr/lib/tls , isn't present ... Has-it an importance ???

Yes, post (actually, don't post it, attach it) /var/log/XFree86.0.log.

No, /usr/lib/tls has nothing to do with it.

Thanks bwkaz for your answer !

But after reading some threads about "glx" on this forum, I find my fault .... I just forgot to uncomment the line " # load "glx" " in my XF86Config-4 ....:o

And now, I'll try to configure my second screen ....
