I purchased an ASUS A7N266-VM motherboard with a 1.2 GHz AMD Athlon processor. This motherboard has an nVidia 220D GeForce MX integrated GPU.
startx gives the dreaded message:
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVdriver kernel module!
I upgraded my RedHat 7.3 kernel from 2.4.18-3 to 2.4.18-5 successfully.
I installed the rpms NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2960.rh73up.athlon.rpm and
NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-2960.i386.rpm as recommended by NVchooser.sh
Both compiled and installed without error.
nv_check.sh runs successfully.
/var/log/messages has the following lines after running startx:
Jul 29 08:25:47 laing2 modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module char-major-10-134
Jul 29 08:25:47 laing2 kernel: nvidia: loading NVIDIA NVdriver Kernel Module 1.0-2960 Tue May 14 07:41:42 PDT 2002
Jul 29 08:25:47 laing2 kernel: NV0: RmInitAdapter failed
RmInitAdapter comes as part of the object file Module-nvkernel, i.e no source to look at.
Where do I go for more information?
