OK. It seems that the original XFree86.0.log file that you posted was posted right after you ran XFree86 -configure, right? That would explain why it was trying to load a ton of different drivers -- because that's what XFree86 -configure does, load a bunch of drivers and then attempt to use whichever ones work. The problem is that the "nvidia" driver isn't included with X, so it doesn't know to try it. And the "nv" driver (the default, open source one) doesn't work with GeForce4 cards.

So, re-edit your XF86Config file (actually, as long as it's in the state that it was in when you posted it here last, that should work -- but check it to make sure nothing has changed), run startx, let it fail, and then post your /var/log/XFree86.0.log file. That should give a better idea of what's going on.

What does cat /proc/pci tell you?

It looks like your nVidia card (at bus 1, device 0, function 0 on the PCI bus) isn't recognized by anything -- and its PCI device ID is screwy; 0x002b? I'm not positive that that device even exists... it's sure not listed in the nVidia README as supported. At any rate, recent kernels' list of PCI IDs doesn't have it listed either. Which card was this, now? Is there a possibility it might not be working properly (like does it work in other OSes)?

Also from the readme, not sure if it's applicable or not, but:

Quote:
Please note that the RIVA 128/128ZX chips are supported by the open
source 'nv' driver for XFree86, but not by the NVIDIA Accelerated Linux
Driver Set.

OK, scanpci thinks its device ID is 002b as well. But according to the nVidia README, under "Supported Devices",

Code:
  NVIDIA CHIP NAME               DEVICE PCI ID

...

  o GeForce2 MX 100/200          0x0111

...
It looks to me like either your card isn't a GeForce2 MX 100/200, or it's reporting its device ID incorrectly.

Unless anyone else has any ideas? Is this a known issue?

What's your vbios version? Can you contact your card vendor to see if there's an update available?

Code:
[bilbo@beta bilbo]$ cat /proc/driver/nvidia/cards/0
Model:           GeForce4 Ti 4200
IRQ:             11
Video BIOS:      04.25.00.29.00
Card Type:       AGP
The "Video BIOS" is what you want.
