Exclamation Geforce 6800 GT Fedora Core 4 nVidia driver

I am having a hell of a time getting the nvidia driver (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-7174-pkg1.run) to work properly.

I am running FC4 test2 (that is the only version that will work with my SCSI adaptec adapter).

I have a Geforce 6800 GT PCI-X

The driver installs fine (have tried every documented process on the web) but when I go to start the X server, it flashes a few times and then nothing. I hit enter and view the log file and no errors. There are a few warnings about some resolutions, but no (EE).

I am a linux newbie and maybe I am missing something. Or maybe FC4 is too new.

I REALLY need a fix for this soon!

Thanks for the help/suggestions!!!!

I assume that by PCI-X you actually mean PCI-E, right?
Please post the following:
A Full machine configuration?
B. Are you usnig the 32bit version, or the 64bit version? (x86-64).
C. /var/log/Xorg.log? (after a crash)
D. /etc/X11/xorg.conf
E. /var/log/message. (again, after a crash)

Try loading the nvidia module (driver) manually (in console, as root: modprobe nvidia) before starting X. Does it help?

Cheers,

Oh... If you're new to Linux, I'd suggest you stay clear of beta releases such as FC4. I'd start with FC3.

i'm having exactly the same problem with my FX5600 AGP.
I install the drivers without any problems on FC3 but FC4 test2 won't let me start the X server unless i desactivate the "load GLX" line in my xorg.conf file.
(but of course when i do that then i don't have any openGL working under X... )

Any idea ?

Your problem might be related to the one discussed here: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?p=573549 (FC4 T1 hangs on "initializing GLX").
