Hi:
I've been for a month in my free time trying to install linux drivers for my riva tnt2 grafics card...it's like and oddisey, after upgrading and recompiling the kernel several times (finally 2.6.14) and applying some patches to the driver i've finally installed 6629.
But it doesn't work: when i try to enter runlevel 5 using nvidia driver in xorg.conf it says at the end unable to inizializate the kernel module.
please help me! i'm tired of this ;)

If this reproduces with 1.0-7174, please generate and post an nvidia-bug-report.log.

Thanks,
Lonni

1.0-7174 is the last driver that supports the TNT2.

Thanks,
