Default problem with X Server & GeForce 4 Mx440

Got A problem.

After installation of ASPLinux 9.2 - X server does not starts with "Unable to locate device Nvidia0. No screens found". During the installation device was found propely. I've set 1024x768, 70Hz,16 bit depth but get this error.
I was able to get the X server running only when i chose "Generic VGA compatible" but it is only in 640x480

Thanks for any help.

P.S. Sorry can't post XF86Config just because I'm using Windows just now.

If you still have the issue post the config and logfile so we can take a look, a number of things could lead to that error.

Default New problem

Got X Server working now....
But when I start 1.0-5336 installer & it tries to compile new kernel layer
I get this message...

-> Kernel module compilation complete.

ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module 'nvidia.o'. This is most likely
because the kernel module was built using the wrong kernel source files.
Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your
kernel; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the
'kernel-source' rpm installed. If you know the correct kernel source
files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the
'--kernel-source-path' commandline option.

-> Kernel module load error: ./usr/src/nv/nvidia.o: unresolved symbol
irq_stat_Rf44275ed

I can post full log if it needed.

Thanks for any help

You need to be sure you have the correct source code for your running kernel installed. I cannot help you with details on installing it with ASPLinux. You can find your current running kernel version with: uname -r

And a little bit more info with: uname -a

The error is telling you that the source code is incorrect for your current kernel; this will create a module that cannot be used with your current kernel. Get the right source setup and it should not have this error.
