Default Redhat 9 and NVIDIA Drivers Not Working

I don't know how more obvious I could have made the topic title

AMD Athlon 750
PNY GeForce 3 ti 200
Soyo k7-vta
Redhat 9 shrike
Of course I'm using the 4363 drivers

I installed the drivers exactly how I was told. I edited the XF86Config file replaced driver "nv" with "nvidia" then system locks up when I try to log in to Xserver

This also is the same case in redhat 8.0. The "nv" driver works fine in 2d with no 3d, "nvidia" just won't let you boot into x at all. There was some sample config file that got intalled with the drivers. I took a look at it and tried pasting some of the stuff I thought I may need, that ended up screwing up my config even more.

I had a similar problem..

This fixed it for me:

1) nvidia-install --uninstall
2) rpm -q -a | grep XFree > /tmp/foo
3) (in a csh variant)
foreach x (`cat /tmp/foo`)
echo $x
rpm -V $x
end
4) Go to your distribution and download any and all rpms that had any errors.
5) Go to the NVIDIA site and download the driver with version 4349 from the archive site.
6) Go to the console and issue 'telinit S'
7) rpm --erase --nodeps XXXX Where XXXX are the damaged rpms
8) rpm --install XXXX Where XXXX are the damaged rpms you downloaded
9) Run the script from nvidia ONCE and only ONCE.
10) Double check the XF86Config.
11) Reboot.

This fixed mine. I wasnt able to get GLX working with the new driver, and when I put 'nvidia' instead of 'nv' in my config with the new driver, my X freaked out. I got regular X with 'nv' but not glx. I think the new driver is just bugged for redhat.
