Can anyone make a suggestion? I would like to get my rtcw working.

You need to change your driver...
 
driver=nvidia <-------

JoeBogarde 09-09-03 08:28 AM

oops, I also forgot to post, I have been through the normal process of installing the nvidia, driver, I put the module in modules/autoload.d, edited my XF86Config, from the above posting, to no avail, my xserver still won't start. I have gaming-sources installed, any ideas?

Did you follow the nvidia driver guide on www.gentoo.org its under the Desktop Setup Guide.

JoeBogarde 09-09-03 06:02 PM

I followed all the standard installation instructions on the desktop configuration guide faq before posting this message. All of these problems seem to be gentoo related, as the same hardware under rh9 function properly with the nvidia drivers.

it looks like your XF86Config is incorrect. Look in the driver documents on what you need to change.

First, read the readme, first, remove:
Load dri
Load xtrap

change that:
Driver "nv"

remove nvidia from autoload. X will behave more sane, when it loads the module for itself.
