Unhappy Slack 8.1 & Driver 1.0-4191: total freeze

Hello all,
I tried to install the new nvdriver 1.0-4191 on my Slack8.1 box, but although i configured the XF86Config file, removed
all the old NVdriver occurrences in modules.conf file.
When i try to start the Xfree server i get a blank screen and my system freeze!!!!

I use the:
-kernel 2.4.19
-XFree 4.2.0
-nvidia-kernel-1.0-4191.tar.gz
-nvidia-glx-1.0-4191.tar.gz

And I have a:
-GeForce II Mx200 AGP
-Abit KT7aRaid AGP 4x Motherboard
-Athlon Thunderbird 1 Ghz

I tried everything, like disable the agp support or use the Nv AGP, or the simple AGPgart, but the result was the same, i get a blank screen and my sys freeze...
The nvdriver was correctly installed and running i suppose, like the glx...
I hope that someone have resolved these this problem.....
Thanks to all and sorry for my poor English!!!

Does using driver 3123 help?

What about pasing mem=nopentium to the kernel at boot?

Both of these are just workarounds for generic problems, I don't really know what could be causing yours.

Probably see at the post "StartX in 5 minutes" it's possible that your driver works fine but you need to waiting for 5-10 minutes before X starts.
The only solution appears to use 3123 drivers.....

I have installed that driver on my Slack8.1 today and it works just fine.

Did you try to look at your X-log (/var/log/XFree86.0.log)??

How does NVdriver get loaded then?? Does the kernel crash when you insert the driver?

It doesn't. He's using release 4191, where the kernel module is named nvidia now. I would assume that the old alias has been changed to reference nvidia now, rather than NVdriver?

For example, if you had alias /dev/nvidia* NVdriver before, you have alias /dev/nvidia* nvidia now?
