Default Still need help :(

I've managed to get the nvidia source code to compile using the patch from www.minion.de. The module (nvidia.ko) has been installed in /lib/modules/2.6.4-54.5-zx-1.01/kernel/drivers/video and a modprobe successfully loads the module. (That is the kernel I'm using and against which the module was compiled)

My problem is that X still seems to use its own nv module (and I get about 300fps when running glxgears) even though the XF86Config file does specify nvidia:

Section "Device"
BoardName "0x0343"
BusID "1:0:0"
Driver "nvidia"
Identifier "Device[0]"
VendorName "NVidia"
EndSection

Furthermore, even though GLcore is not listed under the "modules" section, it is still loaded.

Can some please tell me what could be wrong?

Thanks

Unhappy Re: Still need help :(

After closer inspection of the nvidia readme file, I found that the following files are missing:

/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so.x.y.z
/usr/lib/libGL.so.x.y.z
/usr/lib/libGLcore.so.x.y.z
/usr/X11R6/lib/libXvMCNVIDIA.a
/usr/X11R6/lib/libXvMCNVIDIA.so.x.y.z
/usr/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/ (and, naturally, all its contents)
/usr/lib/tls/libGL.so.x.y.z
/usr/lib/tls/libGLcore.so.x.y.z

Are they supposed to be installed by the installer script and if so, how can I install them manually? The script cannot correctly compile the kernel module so I have to do the installation manually.

Angry Re: Still need help :(

Ok. I've found and copied all the relevant files to the correct positions and ran "ldconfig" to fix the symlinks (which I've double checked and are correct now).

But when I start X, it crashes when trying to load the GXL module. According to the log it is loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so which is a symlink to libglx.so.1.0.5336.

The last few lines of XFree86.0.log is:

(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so

*** If unresolved symbols were reported above, they might not
*** be the reason for the server aborting.

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 8. Server aborting

How do I fix this??
