Default Multiple card support? (kernel module load problem)

Hello,

Running vanilla RedHat 9.

I've tried running the 4363 and 4349 drivers on this config, each time I'm getting the same error ("Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module!")

I'm wondering if perhaps the XF86 nvidia driver doesn't support different nv chipset cards.

This is what I've got:

- PCI nVidia Vanta
- AGP nVidia GeForce 4 MX 440

I've attached the log and config file.

In the attached config file, I tried commenting out the vanta card totally.. just to run single head with the Gf4MX.. I still get the same error.

Any advice?

Thanks,
d

/sbin/modprobe nvidia as root before you startx as your normal user.

If it still fails, check your kernel logs for (hopefully) the reason why. About 90% of the time, it's because you have PnP OS turned on in your BIOS (it should be off), or you have "Assign IRQ to VGA" turned off (it should be on). Of course, those aren't the only reasons, but they are the most common.

Hmm.. before running startx, I tried this:

/sbin/lsmod

which showed nvidia loaded. Is that the same thing?

I'm not sure about the BIOS settings -- I'll have to reboot and check..

Yes, that is the same thing.

Check the kernel logs to be sure.

You nailed that one.

Both of those BIOS settings were incorrect.

I set them correctly and now it works great.

Thanks!
