There are a few minor warnings in your logfile, but nothing that would prevent X from starting. What exactly happens when you enter "startx" ?

I'm using exactly the same TNT2 M64 card with the 4363 drivers on a SuSE 8.2 system.

are you sure it doesn't work??? the log seems absolutely fine?

what exactly is the problem. do you get strange lines or weird characters or does it just exit after flashing a few times without an error?

try ldconfig as root.
try looking in /var/log/messages for any clues
post the config file (change extension) (the forum allows only those extensions specified at the bottom (haven't you noticed it?))

Thank you guys!

try this:

go to text console by pressing CTRL-ALT-F1;
log in as root
shut down display manager like this:
/etc/init.d/dm stop
then install nvidia
edit the config file
/etc/init.d/dm start

if you still have the same problem

you should look into /var/log/messages and see what it says.

else you can startx -- -logverbose 5 and see what it says...

try ldconfig as root

Default Still the same...

Hi,

I tryed everything that you wrote.

What I find:
/etc/init.d/dm stop FAILED
actually, I have the same problem with the saslauthd.

ldconfig as a root gives
/usr/lib/libssl.so.. is not an ELF file. It has the wrong magic bytes at the start.
the same massages about libcrypto.so, libstdc and libgdbm.so

startx -- -logverbose 5 says
Using vt7
(II) [GLX] Initializing GLX extension
Waiting for XServer to shut down

I attached file messages, may be it will give you some ideas.
Still need directions.
Thank you.

i think that something has gone very wrong there, I can tell you, man I've never seen so much errors in a row... I'd say, you'd very much benefit from reinstalling...

but first, check that your CDs are correct, there are MD5 checksums available to test your CDs...

or try reinstalling those packages. this is very weird! have you had a hardware crash some time ago or something?

it could be that your system has been compromised, but not very likely, maybe while installing that you had a power fluctuation or failure?

reinstalling all those packages can be helpful...

Smile I DID IT!!!!!!!!

Thank you very much!
Now I am happy! I did it. This letter I am writing using Linux!

Problem was not in a driver installation at alll. Problem was in my HDD.
Actually MDK9.1 working pretty good even without 4363 driver installation. For sure I am going to install driver.

Once again, thank you all guys for you responses and wishes to help!
