GForce4 & kde3
Hi, i've a problem when i try to start kde on Debian with startx, i've this message:

waiting for X server to shut down

there aren't errors in the XFree86.0.log.
when i compile the nvidia_kernel i've this message:

ld -r -o nvidia.o nv-linux.o nv-kernel.o
size nvidia.o
text data bss dec hex filename
1248495 92824 32940 1374259 14f833 nvidia.o
Warning: loading /lib/modules/2.4.18-bf2.4/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.o will taint the kernel: non-GPL license - NVIDIA
See http://www.tux.org/lkml/#export-tainted for information about tainted modules
Module nvidia loaded, with warnings

That's not an error message - it's simply modprobe telling you that the nvidia kernel isn't licensed under GPL, and no one the kernel mailing list wants to hear from you if you have a problem with it loaded.

Now, as for X not starting, you should look through the log again and read the whole thing. You'll always find the problem in there.
