Default Re: Good XF86Config file


Not to offend, but not all of us have the XF86Config file generated by Anaconda (which is your case). Mine wasn't, and in cases like mine, there IS NO 'Load "dri"' instruction. If you look at the config file that klunker23 posted, you'll see what I'm talking about. In our case, the file had been generated by the Xserver's autoconfig utility that is invoked at boot time when the X-server cannot be started (nvidia drivers cannot be loaded/initiated due to misconfig).

Here is my XF86Config file. just to answer the few questions ya ppl have.

1> Notice the commented line
# Load "dri"

2> and the driver loading section
Section "Device"
# no known options
Identifier "NVIDIA GeForce 3 (generic)"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "NVIDIA GeForce 3 (generic)"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce 3 (generic)"

3> you dont need to comment out the load dri section in the end cause it is just not loaded ... see step 1.

Have fun...

Make sure you did choose the right monitor, compatible display settings and resolutions etc.

3 years of linux and not a second of regret :-)
