I’m a relatively new to Linux.
I’m trying to install nVidia drivers for RedHat 9.0.
I followed the instructions as outlined in the directions. But, when reboot after making the changes, I can't boot RedHat into graphics mode (I get command line interface). The nVidia splash screen does flicker a couple of time so I know I’m on the right track, but I don’t know how to fix this.
At first, I was in 24-bit graphics mode and 1280x1024 resolution. But then I bumped every thing down to 16-bit graphics mode and 800x600 hoping this would help but no luck there either. All I get is the nVidia splash screen to flicker a couple of times then back to command line mode.
My system configuration is as follows:
Motherboard: Gigabyte GOXET-A
Intel Pentium 3, Tualatin Core, 1.2GHz core speed, 133MHz FSB
MSI, model: MX4000-T64
I have enclosed the “nvidia-installer.log”, “XF86Config”, and “XFree86.0.log” files.
Just a side note: I was able to get the nVidia drivers to work on Mandrake 9.1. I moved from Mandrake 9.1 to RedHat 9.0 because I was not able to get my sound card and modem to work in Mandrake 9.1 - so I decided to give RedHat 9.0 a try.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
