I also noticed your are running a 386 kernel, AFAIK you should be using 686 with the Duron for better performance (someone correct me if I am wrong, I'm an Intel guy).
386 kernel wasn't my call, The only download i can get at Kernel.org is the 386, they don't have the multiple versions (ie 386, 686 etc..) at least that I can find.

I'll go ahead and remove the glx, although I'm pretty sure I already removed that when I removed all aspects of Nvidia from my system before.

I was correct, GLX was removed when I removed all other aspects of Nvidia. the only Option I have available with that in synaptic is to install it.

even using apt-get remove it's missing.

Code:
sudo apt-get remove nvidia-glx

Package nvidia-glx is not installed, so not removed

Can you reboot, causing X to fail, then generate an NVidia bug report and post here? I'd like to see what Xorg.0.log says when X fails to start, I suspect it's still trying to load 7667.

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=46678 see section 3A.

how should i make X fail to start??
also dunno if this might help, but this morning when I went to re-install the nvidia driver, I decided to try the modprobe route, went to restart X so I could come here and get the right one to make sure it worked or not, and X failed so I have a Xorg.0.log from that.

as for the bug report, i will post that with whichever route you want me to go on the Xorg.0.log

I was under the impression that if you rebooted, X would fail to start until you loaded the 8756 driver again?

The Nvidia bug report will include the content from Xorg.0.log so don't worry about posting it along.

here is my bugreport, this was after rebooting, and then reinstalling the driver. would attach, but it is larger then the 100kb size limit allowed by the boards.
and if I try to make it a inset display it goes over the character limit on this board.

I also have one that I ran before reinstalling the driver.

Can you give me a bug report where you reboot but don't reinstall the driver? The 692523 looks like it cut off the xorg.conf and Xorg.0.log

Perhaps Gzip the log and post it?

thats the bottom pastebin entry. I will rerun it to make sure it's accurate though.

Edit:

Based on what I see, http://www.iabusinessprojects.com/te...bug-report.log is using the open-source "nv" driver and not the "nvidia" driver. Is this intentional? Have you modified xorg.conf to use the "nvidia" driver and not "nv"? Have you verified that those changes are successfully written?

yes, I did do that, then when I uninstalled all the nvidia drivers, and the restricted modules, I went through the process of installing the 8765 driver it installed the nv drivers, not nvidia.

I will switch that to nvidia and see what happens.

ok, switching to the nvidia driver causes X to fail, before fixing it and restarting I generated a new bug report. you can use the same link as before to access it.
