Hi linuxfriends,

after installing with "sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4496-pkg2.run"

and changing entries in XF86Config-4
the x-server crashes with following.

Have you tried to leave only one "Display" sub-section under the "Screen" ?

I have a similar problem with MDK 9.1 & GeForce 2 MX200, x crashes with 'no screen found with usable configuration' on normal bootup.
If I boot into 'Failsafe -> Graphic & Network' then x starts up like it should ! I would prefer to bootup the normal way , but until someone can help I'm stuck with Failsafe. Would this work for you ?
