Uhm, I think the xfree86.0.log is not the one produced by that startx, because there is no "no screens found" in it. Check again and send us the proper log.

Hi Jacken,

you misunderstood me.

In your first post you posted the output of startx and attached a XFree86.0.log. Problem is, that those two logs are different:

The output of startx shows you are running xfree 3.3.6 as Lane said.

The XFree86.0.log shows you are running xfree 4.0.1 but it doesn't have the error about "no screens found".

Regards,
Marc

Your XF86 may have false parametres...

If you already have an XF86Config file working with a different driver
(such as the 'nv' or 'vesa' driver), then all you need to do is find
the relevant Device section and replace the line:

Driver "nv"
(or Driver "vesa")

with

Driver "nvidia"

In the Module section, make sure you have:

Load "glx"

You should also remove the following lines:

Load "dri"
Load "GLcore"

Hope it helps. Dont use "nv" its a false driver.
