I'm using latest Nvidia drivers, RH 7.3 with a GForce 4MX 420 video card
I've 2.4.18-3 kernel sources
Also installed, 2.4.20 (needed because new VIA KT400 chipset on my mb); I'm running these ones.
- Building nvidia kernel (and/or glx) as indicated => OK
- checking XF86Config-4 (Load dri commented, vesa replaced by nvidia) => ok
- running the Xfree server => ok

but ...
When I restart the computer, the server won't start
below last lines of the log.
================================================== ====================
(II) Module vgahw: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
compiled for 4.2.0, module version = 0.1.0

(II) Unloading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libvgahw.a
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.
Fatal server error:
no screens found
================================================== ====================

Removing the NVIDIA packages (GLX and Kernel)
and reinstalling them allow to start again the server
but I've to do this job after each reboot :-(

Thanks for your help.
