Mandrake 8.1 respawning problem
Getting error during bootup process. After trying to start X the system shows NVIDIA splash screen but then goes black and cycles several times until it kicks me into command line mode with this error:
INIT: Id "x" respawning too fast, disabled for 5 minutes.
After 5 minutes on the command line it cycles through the NVIDIA splash screen until the above error repeats.
I am using the following hardware/software:
1.0-4496 driver set for NVIDIA Geforce MX 420 PCI Video Bios 4.17.0030
Intel Pent IV
on a shuttle AV45GT motherboard.
I have also installed the lastest and greated XFree 4.3 software and edited the XF86Config File.
The XFree86 log looks good, I would include the XF86Config-4 and
logs but I am a dumb ass and can not figure out how to copy those files to floppy. I am using WINXP to write this message.
Any help appreacated.

You might wanna try posting this in one of the Linux forums, you'll have a much better chance of getting answer in there.
