Question Problems with nvDriver in slackware

I need a bit of help:

I am running slackware v8.1, and have a

Siluro Geforce4 t14200 64Meg

I've downloaded the tarball drivers:


I've decompressed and run "make install" on both sets of files. I updated my xf86config file changing:

Driver "nv"
Driver "nvidia"


Load "glx"

and made sure that Load "dri" and Load "GLcore" were not present.

When I run the command lsmod, the command reports back that the ncDriver module is loaded. However, when I run startx, the screen goes black for a second, then dumps me back to console. I get an error message in my log file stating:

"(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVdriver kernel module!"

I've been looking all over for solutions to this problem. If anyone can help, please respond. Thanks
