Angry Xf86-4

hi..I just re-configured my XF86-4 file after I downloaded the geforce mx2 driver..

I changed Driver from "NV" to NVIDIA
uncommented Load Dri
uncommented Load Glcore
and also DRI at bottom of file

I accidentally rebooted my machine after installing new drivers before editing this file..but entered runlevel 3 to rectify the problem but now can't get out of level 3

/Etc/inittab was viewed to make sure init: default was still set to level 5

Curious whether or not their is anything in XF86 I also have to change?

Also I just viewed XF86-4 file again and under the final Dri it shows

# Dri
mode 0666

Any help appreciated..I now can't even use startx

You can't get out from console because your XFree86 is misconfigured. Once the script is ok again you can start x, don't worry. Maybe you should uncomment the following:

Section "DRI"
Mode 0666

btw there is a difference between NVIDIA and nvidia
