31.23 Ok - 41.91 Bad
I've installed the nv drivers version 31.23 (RPM) on this system:
- Athlon XP 1800+
- Epox mobo w chipset VIA KT266a
- GeForce 3 ti200 (Abit Siluro)
- kernel 2.4.18 (red hat 7.3)
- Xfree 4.0.2
they work very well.

when I try to install the new version 41.91 (I'm sure I've downloaded the right RPMs) X server started hanging on startup returning the error:
-no displays found-
So I had to come back to the older drivers (now they are working well as before).
It's very strange that a new version doesn't work when the old works perfectly.
Anyone has an idea?
thanks for help.

Can you post your /var/log/XFree86.0.log from a run with 1.0-4191? "No Screens Found" is a very generic error message, and tells nothing out of context.

Are you making sure the kernel module is removed before installing 1.0-4191?

re to re
thanks for help
now i can't post my log for some logistics problems :)
i'm sure i removed the old kernel version.
in the xfreelog there is a warning:
- the chipset "GeForce3 Ti 200" in the video device is not supported by drivers.-
and the error is:
- no display devices found -(only this!!)
what's wrong?

Can you post the output of 'lspci -vvv'? Specifically, i'm interested to see the part about your video card.

Make sure you're loading nvidia as the module name instead of NVdriver. As root, type modprobe nvidia and see if it loads.
