Unhappy Nvidia GF4 MX 440 + Mandrake

I installed the GLX and kernel on mandrake. When i boot mandrake.. it boots into text mode.. so i login as usual, then hit 'startx'

i get error 104 (connection reset by peer)

so then i su and do a 'XFdrake' and dont change anything there.. i just click on 'TEST'.. after about 2 minutes of a black screen flickering, i get that GUI test screen. After i do this.. X starts.. but takes 2-3min of flickering first.

when it flickers.. i see a Nvidia screen.. then it keeps on with the black flickering.

anyone have any idea whats going on?!??

Exclamation Re: Mandrake 8.2 and nV video card

Hello.
I'm using mdk8.2 with nVidia GeForce 2 MX400 or GeForce4 Mx440: you must consider that XFdrake will install the "nv" driver (opensource driver built by XFree86), which is not accelerated.
If you have installed GLX and kernel module built by nVIDIA, you must load the appropriate driver "nvidia". Read informations at the nvidia page that you can found in the nvidia.com site (a long PDF file about driver installing is available).
Bye. Paolo
