I'm tired reading tutorials, threads on forums and the torah. I've tried the nvidia included drivers in Ubuntu 9.04 and Xubuntu 9.10, the nvidia-glx-71. No way.
I've tried too the official ones here, 71.86.11, same result.
Finally I got the same error, with the xorg.conf generated by nvidia-xconfig (last version), with kernel 2.6.28-11.generic:
(II) LoadModule: "nvidia"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//nvidia_drv.so
dlopen: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//nvidia_drv.so: undefined symbol: AllocateScreenPrivateIndex
(EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//nvidia_drv.so
(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (loader failed, 7)
(EE) No drivers available.
So X doesn't start. I think it's an issue with the kernel, so is there any kernel with is 100% compatible with those drivers? (i mean 100%, not 99,9%). The machine is a Celeron 366 Slot 1, 384 MB RAM, mainboard ASUS p2-99b (bios updated on '99, the latest).
I've tested with the nvidia-embedded, the nvidia official and both of them. If not's a matter with the kernel, what's the matter? Every minute I don't receive an answer, got kills a kitten. Think about it. Without the official drivers the TNT2 is faster as a f'n s3 virge pci. And the Celeron is getting older, let the GPU work a little, please.
<- awesome lol
The xorg.log is attached.
