OK.... umm, now I'm confused.

Not anything you did, just that the log now is showing everything loading up just fine (but it's stopping in the middle of the load process, which probably corresponds to when it livelocks or does whatever else it's doing).

Umm... I'm not sure on what else to try, either... maybe see if you can ssh in from another machine while X is at the black screen? How long have you let it sit there?

it might be a possibility, but you could maybe try an older archived version that supplies the rpms, and since you have rh9 you'd have to get the source rpm and compile it for your kerenl...its just a thought since the glx isn't installing properly....i'm running outta ideas...so thats just a thought

well what confuses me the most and i assure you thats a easy thing to do with linux )))
is that as i stated im new to linux so no other software is loaded in redhat other then what is supplied by the redhat 9 iso image
so more ore less this is a virgin os
so thats why im so confused about the driver issue as far as the other people posting ?s for help i have no idea how virgin there systems are
so to look at it that way one must come up with the ? is it really compiling a true driver for the kernel well at least thats what i would ask myself
seeing no one else has a real idea
i guess alot of questions could be asked
but from a virgin os stand point where elese would you look other then the [installer compiler ]driver it self oh well others are haveing some problems i guess also not many like mine so thats whats more confuseing why so few systems haveing a problem
this was a wiped hd repartitioned reformatted
then a clean install of nothing other then redhat
so again hard to think of it being a improper configuration or defective install everything works fine unless that nvidia driver is installed
so have to go back to that point as a starting point of investigation
new os clean install
no problems
driver install
problems
odd is all

Default ok question on the glx

ok now i go to redhat
take a look at the installed packages with redhat 9
i see no listing of a glx anywhere
does it make it during install
and does nvidia make the GLX during install
could this be the problem
though i see in the config file the listing for Load "glx" not GLX
or is just confusing the issues

ok but i think i read in the nvidia installer instructions that it will make the GLX is that correct if so then maybe thats what the whole problem is its not makeing it
just a ideaor thought
ok so whats the Load "glx" doing then if the nv driver is not useing it
or am i getting it confused
hmm and if all that is true
then how are others getting it to load if nvidia is not makeing the GLX as the software instructions for requirements does not list that as a req

like i said d00d, since for some odd reason the glx is not installing, maybe you could try an archived version of nvidias drivers that come in rpm packages...where you download the glx package and the nvidia kernel package seperate from each other...
