Default issues after installing driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6111-pkg1.run

after installing and making the suggested changes to my XF86config-4 file, I have had a few problems.

First. The colors on my desktop are a little grainy and when I have browser or other programs open, the panel at the bottom of the page is extremely grainy and discolored. Some browser pages such as the opening page for firefox's text is garbled and hard to read. And, the GL xscreensavers will no longer run. I do get some errors in my xfree86 log file that I am attaching. And I'm also attaching my XF86Config-4 file. Any help with these problems would be greatly appreciated.

Oh, and no nVidia splash screen!

I found the problem in the log file. Before I was only looking at the EE and WW entries so I decided to take a more thorough look and found that the color depth was only being set at 8. If you notice in the config file that I have default at 24. Well, I didn't notice before that the line for the color depth was commented out. I removed the # symbol and now all is well. Thanks to those who took time out to check into my issue and I hope that my problem and ultimate solution can help others in the future. Peace
