Default Tnt2 and Mandrake 9.1 (2.4.21)

I have a big problem for a long time, please help me ... ;-)
When I start my linux, the X server start fail !! ( excuse my english, I'm french... ). However, when I start Linux in Failsafe mode and login as root, I can start my x server with 'init 5' or 'startx'. May be just a permission problem....

My computer :

Vidéo card : Tnt2

Drivers : NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5328-pkg1.run

Distribution : Mandrake 9.1

=> your video bios revision (look in /proc/driver/nvidia/cards/0 while X is running) => I can't see because X don't run...

My processor : Intel PIII 500

MotherBoard : Abit BF6

Dans ton fichier XF86Config-4
tu as une ligne "nv" il faut la remplacer par "nvidia"....tu essaies d'utiliser le driver générique de xfree au moyen du driver installée par nvidia.
Je te conseille d'installer pas ce dernier driver mais l'ancien, car il semble que cette version est boguée pour certains.

Alors d'abord merci pour ta réponse je commençais à désespérer...

Il y a une erreur de ma part en fait, j'ai bien mis 'nvidia' et non 'nv'. Sinon, les drivers que j'ai installé sont les derniers, mais j'avais déjà essayé avec les précédents et le résultat était le même. Ca fait maintenant 6 mois que j'essaie périodiquement d'installer ces drivers sans jamais y parvenir...

Sinon, pour plus de détail, j'arrive a démarrer Linux avec les drivers quand je boot en Failsafe puis en tapant init 5 ou startx en étant logué en root. Ca ne fonctionne pas quand je démarre Linux normalement...

Si tu as des idées...
