Redhat 7.3 + Nvidia drivers 3123 = troubles
Hi all.
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?

tnx. eran.

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

telinit 3

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

telinit 5

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.
