Redhat 8.0 and Nvidia
Hey, I have a problem.

All thje people youve helped so far that i have read seem to have random driver problems... I dont know whats wrong with mine.
I have an Nforce motherboard with Intergrated Geforce 2 and it works fine on Mandrake. I recently wanted to install Redhat 8.0 though, and no graphics worked. I could do the text installation perfectly and boot into the command prompt, but no graphic installation and no X.
Any ideas?

And i have a Athlon XP 2000+ with 256Mb DDr ram.

XFree86 4.2.0 (which is what RH 8.0 ships with) does not support the nForce video chipset in the nv driver. Switch your driver in /etc/X11/XF86Config from "nv" to "vesa". This should cure your "X doesn't start" problem so that you can get on the web and get the "real" drivers ("nvidia").
