Default Xorg conf not working though no changes made

Hi,

Recently my xorg.conf configuration stopped working, though I haven't made any changes to it.
My card is nvidia 6800, I've been using AIGLX+Compiz Fusion with TwinView configuration on Fedora 7 without any problems.

In my new, working configuration, the driver is 'nv' not 'nvidia' and manual changes back to 'nvidia' causes X server to crash.

After entering "nVidia dispay settings" i get the "You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server" message. When I do what I'm asked for, the X servers crashes after X's reload.

The resullt of "rpm -qa | grep nvidia":

xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-100.14.19-3.lvn7
kmod-nvidia-100.14.19-1.2.6.23.1_10.fc7
kmod-nvidia-100.14.19-1.2.6.22.9_91.fc7

I tried reintalling these packages with no luck on the topic.

Please help. Thanks in advance.

I'm confused why you'd expect nvidia-settings to work if you're trying to use the 'nv' X driver?

Please try to Update the nvidia Driver to the newest Betaversion ( 100.14.23 or so.. )
And try to update compiz to an Version higher then 0.6.

Then Test again !

The newer nvidia Driver should fix the Problem, but it depends als on Compiz
with Version 0.5.4 and older.

And also confused : nv or nvidia driver in use ? ( xorg.conf vs. xorg.log )

Greetings

Bernd

I want to use NVIDIA driver but I cannot, the working driver is 'nv' only.
At now, using compiz-fusion is not an issue as I can't even make 'nvidia' driver working. I use up-to-date kmod-nvidia driver from livna repository.
