Redhat 7.3 + Nvidia drivers 3123 = troubles
I'm trying to install the new drivers for my Geforce 4 ti 4600 on redhat linux.
i had 2960 working with no problems
I read the installation readme in nvidia.com and I did excatly what it said.
I removed the GLX driver, and installed the new one, the kernel driver I installed with -U flag
when i boot redhat i cant run X, only when i add "#" before the "Load "glx" in XF86Config-4.
anyone can explain me how to fix the problem?
Can't help much except to say that the 3123 driver is working great for me on my Red Hat 7.3 system. I would recommend removing both the GLX and kernel packages and re-installing, as opposed to the upgrade you attempted.
I would shutdown X first, with
Then remove the drivers with
rpm -e NVIDIA_GLX NVIDIA_kernel
Then install them again with
rpm -ivh NVIDIA_GLX*rpm NVIDIA_kernel*.rpm
Cross your fingers and restart X with
I get this warning...is this ok?
Warning: loading /lib/modules/2.4.18-10/kernel/drivers/video/NVdriver will taint the kernel: non-GPL license - NVIDIA
wtf is that?
That's a message printed out by insmod when the Nvidia kernel module is loaded. Because the module is closed-source, it will "taint" the kernel. It's a harmless message.
thanks much andy. its working great!
