Unhappy Re: Error module ScreenPrivateIndex


i have
# cat /etc/fedora-release 
Fedora release 9 (Sulphur)
# lspci  | grep -i VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV18 [GeForce4 MX 440 AGP 8x] (rev a2)
it have 2 VGA outputs: old CRT one and digital one

old CRT works with "nv" driver and i have blurry screen, dvi output doesnt work with "nv" driver.

i used
# sh --apply-patch NVIDIA_kernel-96.43.05-2290218.diff.txt
Self-extractible archive "" successfully created.

as described on
which made me

running it produced nvidia kernel module and no errors was found in /var/log/nvidia-installer.log
# tail -3 /var/log/nvidia-installer.log
-> Your X configuration file has been successfully updated.  Installation of
   the NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for Linux-x86 (version: 96.43.05) is
   now complete.
now trying to run with startx, leads me to the following error:

can someone fix driver or make "nv" driver work over DVI connector? Thanks

PS: DVI output works fine with NOUVEAU driver, but firefox (Xorg?) rendering seems to be very very slow....
