Redhat 8 and geforce 4 4400
I installed redhat 8 and rebuilt the glx and kernel rpm's from source. I also have the kernel headers installed and updated the xfree version to 4.2.1.
When I start X after instaling the drivers the Nvidia logo flashes twice and then I am booted back to the command line. This only happens when I have bitdepth set to 24. I believe that I should be able to run my desktop at 24 bit color.
Does anyone know why this is happening or a remedy for it?
Generally, it's hard to say what's wrong unless we can see any error messages you may be getting. "I am booted back to the command line" is not extremely descriptive. ;)
Post your log file, /var/log/XFree86.0.log
I don't have a solution to your problem. I wish only to add that I experienced something similar with my MX440, so it's another data point to consider.
When I tried to configure X during the RH 8.0 install process, none of the 24-bit modes would work at any resolution (this was using the vesa driver that the installer chose). I haven't tried setting the depth to 24 since I installed the NVidia driver's though.
I also rebuilt the srpm's, so it will be interesting to see if I have the same problem you did. I'll try it in the next day or so.
It works now! Heh, I made a little personal error here.
I forgot to change both of the values to 24 and only changed the first one.
Device "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)"
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
Both need to be changed :)
