Default MDK 9.1 Having Trouble with X (Installing Over Previous Driver)

I'm having trouble with the new drivers.

I current have the 4191 drivers install from RPM's and this works perfectly with GLX and everything.

I'm running a Dual Head display (s3 PCI card and GeForce3 AGP)

this works perfectly with the current drivers.

I experience problems with the new (4349) drivers. When installing either over the top of the old ones or after removing the old ones. X just gives me a blank screen and i cannot even change Virtual Consoles. Sometimes depending different GLX settings in XF86Config i get an X display just on the s3 card.

Am i doing something wrong? According to XFree86.0.log

the nvidia and GLX modules are not loading

(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***

(EE) [GLX]: Failed to add GLX extension (NVIDIA XFree86 driver not found)

How do i make them load again?? if i uninstall the driver and put the old ones back in everything is fine again.

how do i get it to recognise these drivers??

I am almost positive XF86Config-4 is correct.

but have attached XFree86.0.log

The card is a GeForce 3 ti200 128Mb
The card Bios is 03.20.00.27.00
Distro Mandrake 9.1
AMD XP 1800+
The Mobo is a Soltek cannot find the model number at present

Thanx for any Help
Rikki

The "Failed to initialize" message is the catchall error message.

Are you sure you have the right kernel module loaded? What does /proc/driver/nvidia/versions say?

#cat /proc/driver/nvidia/version
NVRM version: NVIDIA Linux x86 nvidia.o Kernel Module 1.0-4349 Thu Mar 27 19:00:02 PST 2003
GCC version: gcc version 3.2

What do i have to do to install the correct kernel modules?? uname -r gives me 2.4.21-0.13mdk

nvidia-installer -k="2.4.21-0.13mdk" just gives me an error message saying it cna't find the package.

i also tried installing 4349 by tar.gz file but this did not work either. i cannot get the old drivers to work again now tho. how do i uninstall the drivers after installing from tar.gz ???

I have also noticed that the bulk of problems are occuring when i am telling it to Load GLX

if i tell it not to load GLX then the nvidia module loads complains that it can't find GLX and then unloads and closes X but when GLX is set in Load Modules X just gives me a blinking cursor

Sorry, I should have been clearer - I was worried that you were using an older kernel module with newer GL libraries.

Does it work if you don't load the vesa driver?

I havent tried it without the vesa driver. if this is the case i'll have to get a better 2nd graphics card. i have been meaning to for a while anyway.

I'll give it ago and let you kno the results.
