Problem with nvidia drivers on geforce 4
I've problem with that drivers. The X works properly on default nv drivers but when i upgrade it with most recent nvidia drivers X fails to load. Also graphical installation in most linux systems doesnt works(suse8.0, mandrake9.1)
The nvidia drivers install without any problems i change the xfree config file as its said in readme.Reboot and the screen is black with some white&green chars on it.
I have P4 2,8ghz ,1gb ram, Geforce 4 Ti4800SE(leadtek winfast A280 My vivo edition) on Soltek SL-85ERV2

I think the driver was installed corectly because it said so.
manual modprobing the nvidia module makes no difference
While performing tips in readme I found error messages in messages file it says sth about agpgart module
I don't know what is wrong but to make this card working properly under windows (agp 8x) the via 4in1 pack needs to be installed.

/* i use the tarball install files
"tho the new *.run script is very nice =)"
make install (Kernel)
make install (GLX)
in that order.
then mod your XF86Config file as follows (VERY IMPORTANT HERE!!!)
if you think the XF86Config file is hosed,
grab the backup, you did make a backup right?
(or regenerate it w/ the setup script that most distros have)
quote from the README packaged w/ 4191glx.tarball file:
(sec-03) EDITING YOUR XF86CONFIG FILE
If you already have an XF86Config file working with a different driver(such as the 'nv' or 'vesa' driver), then all you need to do is find the relevant Device section and replace the line:
(or Driver "vesa")
In the Module section, make sure you have:
You should also remove the following lines:
/* another thing to note if you think there is a GART issue: */
(app-d) APPENDIX D: XF86CONFIG OPTIONS
The following driver options are supported by the NVIDIA XFree86 driver:
Option "NvAGP" "integer"
Configure AGP support. Integer argument can be one of:
0 : disable agp
1 : use NVIDIA's internal AGP support, if possible
2 : use AGPGART, if possible
3 : use any agp support (try AGPGART, then NVIDIA's AGP)
Please note that NVIDIA's internal AGP support cannot
work if AGPGART is either statically compiled into your
kernel or is built as a module, but loaded into your
kernel (some distributions load AGPGART into the kernel
at boot up). Default: 3 (the default was 1 until after
/* many more fun variables to play w/ */
/* view /var/log/XF86config.0.log again for errors. */
/* another fun one for is */
/* good luck
