I ran into the same problem with my system. Turns out I had installed the wrong version of the kernel driver.
If you are sure you have the right one then double check the changes to your XF86config (or XF86config-4) file as detailed in the README.

rh 7.3
i had to add the "Option NvAGP" "1" to my XF86Config-4 to get it working. q3 linux runs great on a dual p3 550, ultra tnt2 32, 2.4.18-10smp kernel(i think thats what it is) anyways i did the update from redhat wich did the kernel also. had a hell of a time figuring this out. installed from the i686smp rpm on the nvidia site.
in case anyone finds it interesting it a netserver e60, wich hp says no way for redhat 7.3, took the crappy video card out that it came with........work on wine and halflife begins.....

That is worth a try...
Where did section you stick the "option NvAGP" "1"?
or where did you see that documented?

nvidia has a redme file for the drivers

on its webside which will answer your question;-)

thanks you for the reply
Yeah... There are quite a few option to choose from.

# Option "NvAGP" "0" # KG None
# Option "NvAGP" "1" # KG NVAGP
# Option "NvAGP" "2" # KG AGPGART
# Option "NvAGP" "3" # KG first AGPGART, then NVAGP
# Option "NoRenderAccel" "on"
# Option "NoLogo" "on"

unfortunely this did not seem to be what is causing my crashes, I tryed different option.

thank you all the same...

i thought it was kinda vague. i looked at some posts at www.mandrakeuser.org wich had some configs posted, i used those to take a guess were to put it. i didnt even have that line or a hint of it in there. id post my config but im at work on a w2k laptop wich is more practical for actually getting something done. there a re a lot of tips wich can be useful for clues. keep a couple of things in mind, the people in the forums are generally like you or me-havent a clue. and read read read!! i overlooked a lot of important stuff before i started understanding some of it, a lot of stupid mistakes and reloads. keep at it!!! i almost threw my pc in the dumpster. heh
