Default GeForce4 MX 440 w/ Mandrake9.1

**edit**
Current XF86Config-4 and XFree86.0.log files at the end of the thread
**edit**


I'm a first time Linux user, so please bare with my ignorance.

I had one heck of a time getting things configured, but "in the end" I had my card listed in the hardware settings listings (harddrake) properly as the MX 440. When I went to install/run quake3, I noticed that there was a problem with openGL, that is what started my current set of problems.

As my system stands now, I can not start X. The system freezes on 'startx'

My system specs are:

ASUS P4S800 Motherboard (website)
Pentium4 2.4GHz
GeForce4 MX 440 w 8X AGP

First I tried to rerun the Nvidia-installer, I recived the following errors:

Unable to determine the properties for file '/usr/lib/libGL.so.1.0.4496' (No such file or directory).

Check 'OK'

The installer has encountered the following error during installation: 'Cannot backup /usr/lib/libGL.so.1.0.4496'. Continue anyway?

Check yes, then:

Unable to determine properties for file '/usr/lib/libGLcore.so.1.0.4496' (No such file or directory).

Then the same backup error on that file. I continued with the rest of the install without errors.

My current XF86Config-4 file is:

I had XFdrake create this file after encountering my first set of problems, (I realize the module section is not set properly as defined by Nvidia,) the old config file had:

Section "Module"
Load "dbe" # Double-Buffering Extension
Load "v4l" # Video for Linux
Load "extmod"
Load "type1"
Load "freetype"
Load "glx" # 3D layer
EndSection


That was the entry when I could load X but could not run openGL programs (quake3, etc...)

I am at a "completely lost" point now....

To keep this starting off simply...

What is the command line to edit a file while not in x? I found out it's not as simple as 'edit XF86Config-4'

Should I completely re-write the module and device sections? If so, what needs to be put in these sections?

I reverted to an old XF86Config-4 that would allow me to at least load X, but there is still the issue of not having openGL, hopefully by making my current problems smaller, help will be easier...

I'm attaching the log file with verbose set to 5.

Here is the Config-4 contents:

After posting the XF86Config-4 file, I noticed that it was working with the old 'Driver "nv"' so I changed it to 'Driver "nvidia"' (as directed in the readme file.) startx crashed out with only that change made, and the new XFree86.0.log file verbose 5 file is attached to this post.
