Hello bwkaz,

My problem still persists!

I promised to get back to you.
So, here is what I found out:

First of all I had the wrong driver at Mid-December 2002.
I learned that from this forum about two weeks after my initial post.
Then I removed the two old nvidia RPMs
(1.0-3123) and installed the two 1.0-4191 RPMs.
Those support 8x AGP cards which I do have.

After studying the driver's manual I set the
following options:

1.)
in /etc/X11/XF86Config:
...
Section "ServerFlags"
Option "AllowMouseOpenFail"
Option "NvAgp" "1" <---- this line
EndSection
...

2.)
in /etc/modules.conf:
...
################################################## ######################
# AGP
################################################## ######################

# Andre, 22122002
#pre-install mga /sbin/modprobe "-k" "agpgart"
#pre-install r128 /sbin/modprobe "-k" "agpgart"
#pre-install radeon /sbin/modprobe "-k" "agpgart"
#options agpgart agp_try_unsupported=1
options nvidia NVreg_ReqAGPRate=8 <--- this line

--- end of modifications

Anyway, when I start X from runlevel 3 I can see
that the X-server is trying to start up but one
second later the monitor becomes black again.
Nothing else is happening, it stays black until
I press <CTRL><ALT><DELETE> on the keyboard
and let the PC shut down.

The X-server log file /var/log/XFree86.0.log
does not complain, all seems to be well:
...
[31] 0 0x000003b0 - 0x000003bb (0xc) IS[b](OprU)
[32] 0 0x000003c0 - 0x000003df (0x20) IS[b](OprU)

(II) NVIDIA(0): AGP 8X successfully initialized
(II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1024x768"
-- end of /var/log/XFree86.0.log --

So, what is wrong?
Do you have any idea?

I will post four files:
1.) /etc/X11/XF86Config
2.) /etc/modules.conf
3.) $HOME/.X.err
4.) /var/log/XFree86.0.log
