Question No screens found in Conectiva 9.0

Hi!

I installed recently the conectiva 9.0, so I downloaded and installed the nvidia driver that executed with no problem. But when I configure the XF86Config-4 file the kde doesn't start and send this message: "no screens found". So I posted the log file.
English isn't my native tongue, so I'm sorry if I'm not clear.
Thanks in advance.

Default XF86Config

Could you post your X86Config file(usually in /etc/X11)? It seems that is it messed up with the old driver.

Default Something is really wrong...

Your xfree log says it loads the wrong driver(namely the xfree driver "nv" and not the nvidia driver "nvidia") but your XF86Config file use clearly the "nvidia" driver...
Check out that you have the /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.o file.
Maybe you have a XF86Config parsing error due to the last word of your XF86Config:EndSection is mispelled(at least in the file I have). Correct it.

Default ...

The last word of your X86Config seems mispelled. Namely the word "EndSection" right at the end. Well, the XFConfig86 I downloaded from the forum is, but maybe your XF86Config is ok.
Did you check that you have the /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.o file?

Post nvidia_drv.o file

Yes, I have the /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.o file! But, I don't see any mispell in the XF86Config file yet.

Lightbulb Brutal action...

Ok, my mistake for the XF86Config mispelling thing... must the file you posted on the forum.

Try something hardcore, namely rename the xfree driver:
rename as root /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nv_drv.o to /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nv_drv.o-BACKUP
and now try to run X(don't forget to load the agpart and nvidia kernel modules first). If it still does not work check out the xfree log which should be different, and if you can't figure out what's wrong with it, post it here.

The trick is that your xfree log file shows the use of the nv_drv.o, and that's wrong! it should use the nvidia_drv.o... that's why I ask you to rename the nv_driver.o in order to make xfree not able to find it and see what happens.

Post new log

Well, because I don't know exactly how to load the agpart and nvidia kernel module, I only renamed the file nv_drv.o and tried to run X. Unfortunately it doesn't work. Here is the log file.

Default Wow!

You renamed the nv_drv.o file, but it is still loaded according to the log file... magic? Be sure that you do not have anymore a /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nv_drv.o file.
And before starting X, you must load AGPART and NVIDIA kernel modules
Here are the command lines you must use before starting x:
modprobe agpart
modprobe nvidia

To check they are loaded properly, use this command line:
lsmod

You should see agpart and nvidia somewhere.

Then start X.

Strange, after did all you said I discovered that the agpart file doesn't exist in my system and when I was start the X the system stucks with a black screen. Here's the log file.
