Default Re: Fatal server error: no screens found / Syncmaster 913v

I am using a GeForce4 MX440 AGP 8X with 64MB memory and a Samsung Syncmaster 913v tft display.

Everything worked well.

I see that the kernel wants to load the driver during reboot.

But at the end I get the following error messages on the screen:

When I look at the Xorg.0.log file I see

Fatal server error:

Does someone knows which changes to make ?


Hello. I have the same problem, which I have been working on for three weeks. I have tried numerous xorg.conf configurations and changes, just to see what would happen - I always end up with 'Sreens found, but none have a usable configuration.'

I find it interesting that this post has sat almost a week without a single response. I think nVidia under Unix/Linux may be just too much trouble. I have uploaded the xorg.conf example, and was going to upload the Xorg.0.log file, but I can't get to that one at the moment.

If someone might look at the xorg.conf file and let me know of any glaring errors, I would really appreciate it! Thank you,
