nVidia driver 4349 fails to initialize! Mandrake 9.1, GeForge 2 GTS, Biostar M7v
I need help running the new driver 4349 on mandrake 9.1
I've got a nVidia GeForce 2 GTS
the installer ran fine, the drivers were installed correctly, i edited the XF86Config-4 file as described on the README file...
but when it comes to start the X server i get the error message included in the log file attached...
No screens Found error...
I installed the drivers also in my old Mandrake 9.0, and i managed to make it run properly, but i've got no clue on how to do it in the new distro...
my pc specs:
AMD Athlon XP 2000+
Motherboard: Biostar M7Vip
ram: 512 MB DDR
Video: GeForce2 GTS
Tnx in advance!
here the XF86Config-4 file

"Failed to initialize kernel module" errors have one of two causes.
1) The kernel module may not be loaded. Check the output of /sbin/lsmod for nvidia, and if it's not there, /sbin/modprobe nvidia as root. Then redo the startx stuff. If this fixes it, then add "nvidia" to /etc/modules.autoload (or whatever Mandrake calls it)
2) The module's loaded, but can't initialize the card. In this case, there is usually a message logged to the kernel log buffer (using printk, but that's not really important), that klogd reads and passes to syslog. These messages can usually be seen by doing a dmesg. Otherwise, look in /var/log/messages for stuff near the end, prefixed with NVRM.
