Default Error: Nv-control

I have the latest NVIDIA drivers installed on FC 3 and the desktop works fine. I do not have any openGL nor do I have nvidia-settings --- ERROR: NV-CONTROL extension not found on this Display. I do not know what the problem is here? Can anyone help me out ?

Chances are you're using the Xorg "nv" X driver module and not the NVIDIA one. Check your Xorg configuration file (see the README for details).

Thank you, that was the problem. I did chang that file when I first installed the drivers and tested it, what could have changed it I wonder? Thanks again.

I am getting the same error. I definitly changed "nv" to "nvidia" in my XF86Config file. I am running Mandrake Cooker.
