RH 7.3 (2.4.18-3) with AOpen ti4600
Well I've tried absolutely everything my newb brain can think of.
Ran NVchooser.sh, downloaded and installed...
Did everything the README says... changed XF86Config-4 as it says. Ran nv_check.sh and it says everything will work fine. I try to startx and then it just goes to a black screen (big surprise). CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE doesn't kick me back out to the console either.
I've checked out XFree86.0.log and there are NO error messages with -logverbose 5. The odd thing is that after I restart my computer and then run nv_check.sh it says it cannot detect the NVIDIA kernel.
This led me to believe I should stay away from the rpm and stick to the tars. What do you guys think, I'm all out of ideas.
(BTW, I was able to install NVIDIA just fine on a pentium 2.2 with a vanta 16MB. Worked great. I also tried messing with Modeline in XF86Config-4, to no avail.)
The nvidia kernel module is loaded at the startup of X that's why the script couldn't find it I think. I would try the following to see if it helps. Do "modprobe NVdriver" while you are in a console, after it try to startx. (perhaps the kernel module spits out errors ..)
Do you see 'nvidia' or 'NVdriver' somewhere?
prompt$ insmod NVdriver
(whatch the case)
You could also delete your XFconfig-4 file and regenerate with Xconfigurator (after you're sure the Nvidia module is running)
