X crash on startup
1 Attachment(s)
I'm having trouble getting the NVidia 4496 drivers to work with my GF4.

I installed the drivers with no problem, edited my XF86Config according to the readme, then tried to run startx.

It flickered into a graphics mode, then reverted to a text mode console, showing errors (XFree86.0.log in zip, attached), and locked up.

-Linux Redhat 9 - Kernel 2.4.20-8
-AMD Athlon XP 1800+
-VIA KT266
-GeForce 4 MX440 (AGP)

I have attached a zip containing my XF86Config and XFree86.0.log files.

Anyone have any suggestions?

The 'nvidia' module failed to load. This could be for a number of reasons, but it may not be compiled and installed quite right yet. Try to load the module using modprobe and see if it gives you any errors.

/sbin/modprobe nvidia


and verify it is loaded, then try
telinit 5

sorry about that :)

turns out, i needed to turn on "assign irq to vga" in my bios, which i thought i'd done already.....

thanks for your help.
