Default NVidia Installation Problem

Never had a problem installing the NVidia Drivers until today. The NVIDIA Driver does not load on linux startup. So my question is under Red Hat 8.0 what do i put in modules.conf to load The Drivers?

The only nvidia related alias in /etc/modules/conf is:
alias char-major-195 nvidia

however, I believe this is generated by the driver when loading.

No hand modification to /etc/modules.conf should be necessary, edit the XFree86 config file with the changes described in the nvidia readme, namely these:

in /etc/X11/XF86Config

Section "Module"
# removed for nvidia glx to control rendering
# Load "dri"
# Load "fbdevhw"
# Load "v4l"

# is a comment in this file

add line:
Load "glx"

if it is missing under the same section "Module"

then change 'nv' to 'nvidia' here:

Section "Device"
Driver "nvidia"

The driver should load at startup automatically now.

Problem is I have all that, the driver just doesn't load at startup so i have to manually load it and it messes everything up. I've tried reinstalling the driver many times, with the same results. Like i've said I never had this problem with the drivers before. Just happened out of the blue and I have no idea why or how to fix it.

Ok I fixed the problem. I had to move the nvidia command in the modules.conf file to the top. I think it had to do with the usb modules that were being loaded somehow were preventing the nvidia module to load properly.
