GeForce 4 440 MX problems
 
Hello!

I wish somebody could help me with the driver installation!

Well. I downloaded NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336-pkg1.run file and as were said in those manuals proceeded with installation. The result of all this was a ASCII filled screen instead of my usual KDE interface!

I have edited my XF86Config file according to manuals.
What did i change?
I changed
Driver "nv" to Driver "nvidia"
Checked whther there is a Load "glx" entry in the Module section (it was)
Removed Load "dri" entry
Checked whether there is Load "GLCore" entry (it wasn't).

Where is the problem?

The following lines are the content of my XF86Config file (original):

# XFree86 4 configuration created by redhat-config-xfree86

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "DevInputMice" "AlwaysCore"

Section "Files"

# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
# no need to change the default.
# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.
RgbPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
FontPath "unix/:7100"

Section "InputDevice"

# Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
# Option "Xleds" "1 2 3"
# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
# Option "XkbDisable"
# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
#
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"

What distro are you runing? Also do you have the latest XFree86 installed?
I'm using Gentoo and I am having problems with OpenGL games not finding a matching GLX visual. Here is the exact error:
Couldn't set video mode: Couldn't find matching GLX visual


History:

Exiting due to error

Also, slicer, try this in your XFree86 config file in the Section "Device":
Identifier "Card0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "nVidia Corporation"
BoardName "NV17 [GeForce4 MX 440]"
# ChipSet "NVIDIA MX 440"

I'm also using a GeForce4 MX 440, P4, AOpen MX46-533v motherboard, 640 Mb ram, 40 GB HDD.
