Default what modules do i need to load into my display driver

i installed the new nvidia driver for the fx 5600 and it didnt have any of the modules preloaded. i believe this is causing me problems with X11drv, causei keep getting an error saying that x11drv cant open display. i was reading about winex3 and it said to make sure i had load glx in there. other than that i dont know what to put.

I would suggest using the default X config program for your distro (each has one) to rebuild your config as this should add all the common modules and configuration details. Then re-edit this to apply custom changes.

I use these on Fedora:
Load "v4l"
Load "xtrap"
Load "speedo"
Load "glx"
Load "dbe"
Load "extmod"
Load "record"
Load "type1"
Load "freetype"

nVIDIA video driver RPMs for Fedora :: see yum repo at livna.org.
