ok here it is i guess i really didnt send you the file cause looking at this one it does look different
anyway here it is sorry for that guess i had done something wrong
ok this was the pattern i used to generate this file
loaded the nvidia driver first
successfull install it said
went to the config file changed nv to nvidia and got rid of the Load "dri"
then went to startx ok same as before no screen what so ever have to reboot at this time dont know how to get out any other way tried ctrl alt backspace and delete to no avail so do hard reboot
go to log in go to emacs and copy folder to other area on drive
then uninstall nvida driver successfull uninstall
then go to emacs to change config file back to original set up
then startx no problems back to normal
ok so here i am loading the file for you
thx for the help so far i sure hope we can figure this out or actually you guys cause i got no clue

Are you sure the driver installed correctly?

Your log file indicates that you're still loading the old libglx.a file instead of the nVidia libglx.so file for the "glx" extension. It also indicates that you don't have an nvidia_drv.o file anywhere in the driver path (/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers).

Both of these files (libglx.so and nvidia_drv.o) are installed by the installer (they used to be installed by the NVIDIA_GLX package, but with the installer you don't need individual packages anymore).

Can you post a copy of /var/log/nvidia-installer.log from the install attempt? It might also be worth moving your /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.a file somewhere else after installing the nVidia drivers (though I don't think that's the actual problem...).

absolutely 4 times installed and installed all times said install was successfull
if it was ever listed as unsuccessfull i would have stopped and would not go onto the xwindow in the first place
though i am new to linux completely
ive used computers for over 10 years
windows versions
and i do know the difference between the different statments of successfull and failed to install statmenets by software
ive seen one other post about a black screen for this 4363
ive read the log also and see that nothing is loaded i think this is the problem but then again im not sure
seeing the way files are handled and where they are put in linux and windows are completley different
before i even attempted to upgrade the drive i read the install notes for the driver several times
and confirmed i had on my system all the appropriate files and versions
as stated in there system requirements area
i have a p4 1.6 intel
dual boot to windows xp pro
msi gforce3 ti 200 vid card
seems quite odd to me
the driver as stated will build a software setup based upon the kernal each and every time it did this before installing and all was successfull from beginning to end so the installer software reported
no error codes no nothing
nothing more then installation completed successfully each and every time
thats about all i can say i got no error codes no error screans nothing
go to startx and wham black screen
each and every time
what more info can i offer that might supply a better description
though i think this is about as complete as there as as what the screens where telling me
i can provide other files if need be
i can install again
if you want
seems to be no big deal i cant detect any harm its doing
but like i said ive posted my actions earlier in the way it was performed
each and every time was the exact same way

did you update your kernel, cause maybe it is installing to the older kernel folder...

yes ive updated the kernel rhn or redhat network
auto updated kernel and source files and pkgs of basic setup
that is why the driver asked me if i would like to have it build for that kernal as stated before i have let it do that and it says its done that
ok now to other question
ok so what your saying is that the old kernal is still on system and is still accessable
hmmmm ok how to i find out
i have noticed that when i log into grub it says there three versions of the linux on my machine i just thought they where the older kernals but not able tolog into that
hmmm ok so if i can still log into them that maybe what is happening
ok so how would ya know or how would i know if it was loaded into other kernal
and if so can it be moved to the new kernal
eeeeee ghads bat man so many questions
im sorry for all the questions being so new to linux its like the first book i ever read

hrmm ok now, in the console type "uname -r" to give you the kernel version being used....and you can type something like "rpm -qa|grep -i kernel" to see which are installed on your box....now once you know what kernel you are using and what ones you are not using, you "su" to root and uninstall the older kernels, and this will be done by "rpm -e kernel.x.x.x" where the x's stand for the version numbers...after you do all that try the "rpm -qa|grep -i kernel" to make sure only the kernel you are using exists, and try re-installing the nvidia drivers....and if it comes down to it, or if you just want to try it from the get go, there is a a command you can use with the nvidia installer to specify the kernel folder...its up to you, just play around :P

Like I said, post /var/log/nvidia-installer.log from an install run (not an uninstall run).

The older kernels aren't causing the problem. The problem is that the GLX stuff (the libglx.so file and the nvidia_drv.o file) aren't being found; these are completely independent of the kernel version.

ok bw i assure you that log file is the exact one that was used during a install
i redid everything and it is exactly the same
infact i made sure i did it twice
that is a install log file not after uninstall
i only uninstalled afterwords to post the log file to set it up on here for you guys to look at
it was copied onto a seperate drive not even the one that red hat is on
to make sure no way of a conflict or anyway of it being accessed
still the same results
i even just redid the install for redhat
just about two hours ago and redid everything the log is identical
for some reason the nvidia driver is not being located as you have stated looks like the GLX thingy but im not really sure
im at a loss
i guess but only my guess the nvidia driver has some bugs cant see how is the redhat no error messages ever on the install
works fine till i load the nvidia driver
then no screen as the log states
oh well hope someone can figure it out would be nice to update the nvidia driver
thx for looking and takeing your time out to try to help

nvidia-installer.log, not XFree86.0.log.

You haven't yet posted an nvidia-installer.log file...

ok to reafirm my process this is the pattern i used
i downloaded the file again to make sure its not corrupt in anyway
i log out to console

no download to from nvidia for kernal tried that a few times nothing ever happens
so say no to download
it recompiles for kerne2.4.20-13.9
completes install with success
change XF86Config
startx
black screen
hard reboot
copy XF86Config,XFree86.0.log,nvidia-installer.log
