Default Black Screen with GeForce FX 5600

Hi:

I installed the drivers: NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5328 succesfully. Then I changed the configuration file /etc/X11/XF86Config so it will use the "nvidia" driver, I activated the glx module and I added the Option "NvAGP" "1".

The problem is when I start running X, the log does not give any error, but the screen at tty7 goes black and thats it, if I swap screen to ttyX where I gave the command startx it gives me the following error:

XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0" after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

Plz help!

Thanx!

There's got to be some telling errors somewhere in the logs.

startx > x-error.log 2>&1

The command printed this file:

It is the same error that I find when I change to the screen where I executed the startx.

Any ideas?

The logs just end, without telling much - darn. I have only one guess and it is a long shot: like me, you have a VIA chipset which just doesn't work with version 5328. So go back a release.

One more thing: try using <"Driver" "vesa"> and <"Driver" "nv"> to see if X even works again.
