Thanks for any help

My configuration is Fedora Core 3, installed kernel 2.6.10, graphics card GeForce MX 4000. I got splash screen/ black screen freeze too when I installed patched 6629 driver mentioned in this thread. I moved down to kernel 2.6.9, didin't help.

So finally I used a patched driver 6111 (which can be found here: on kernel 2.6.9. And wallah, everything is working fine thing to note, the patched driver 6111 (it is patched for "error loading nvidia.ko module" error) does not work for 2.6.10. "nvidia.ko" error still remains on 2.6.10 for this patched driver. Hope they fix the pathced 6111 for 2.6.10.
