Default Nvidia driver x86-185.18.14 fails to install on CentOS 4.7

Hi

I have attached the following nvidia card to a PCI slot on my desktop:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814187084

It has a GEForce 9500 GPU

The output of uname -i on my machine is:

Linux isi 2.6.9-78.0.22.ELsmp #1 SMP Thu Apr 30 19:14:39 EDT 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

The relevant output of lspci -vv (as root) is:

02:04.0 Multimedia video controller: Unknown device 18a2:0001 (rev 01)

I tried running the nvidia install script: "sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.14-pkg1.run" after I went to text login and typed init 3.

It could not finish the install and gave errors. I am attaching the file /var/log/nvidia-installer.log

The kernel was compiled with gcc 3.4.6 and the version matches with the current version of gcc I have.

The installer log file lists that there might be conflicts form rivafb or nvidiafb. Can anyone give me pointers on how to remove them?

Thanks

The NVIDIA kernel module was unable to locate an NVIDIA GPU in your system. The device you included the `lspci` output for, PCI:02:04.0, does not look like an NVIDIA GPU. Can you post the complete output of `lspci -vn`?

I think you are right. IT is PCI:4:0:0

Device 4:0:0 is a Realtek RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller. I don't see any NVIDIA graphics devices in your log: They should have a class of 0300 and NVIDIA's vendor ID, which is 10de. There is one VGA device, 0:2:0, which is some sort of Intel integrated graphics chip.

Hi Aaron. You are right

The board is connected to a PCI slot. I do not understand why nothing comes up in lspci?

I never thought I could do something this stupid - It turns out that the video card was not in the PCI slot completely. Everything is working now. Thanks.
