Perhaps you do not have console ownership?
I'm quite a newbie, and I can't figure out how to resolve this one:
I've installed the nvidia driver 4363.
>>> sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4363.run
All went right.
I've edited the XF86Config-4 file, and changed the
>>> Load "nv"
>>> Load "nvidia"
Now, if I start the X server as root, it works perfectly. I do a glxinfo and I can see that the direct rendering and the AGP 4x are activated. Also KDE and GNOME are working.
But, if I try to start the X with any other user (even with newly created users), I get the error:
"Perhaps you do not have console ownership?"
If I switch back to Load "nv", all works again (but without nice 3d graphics!)
I've tried several times. Last one, I've reinstalled Mandrake 9.1 just before installing the nvidia driver.
To you do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears
