Default Someone OUGHT to mention : [Mdk 9 troubleshoot]

I have struggled a lot to discover what prevented the Nvidia drivers to function properly with my MDK9 distro.

Symptoms :
-Nvidia driver load ok (Xfree.log is clean)
- X doesn't start (flickers, then black screen and total lockup)
- if you telnet the box (only way to access it), you see X eating 99% of the CPU.

Cure :
Uninstall libMesaGL1 rpms

For some reason, the script with Nvidia (3123 for me) does not unlink properly (or the mandrake scripts interfere) the libGL1 which gets loaded at start time ...

Hope this helps some desperate guys
