Default RH 8.0, K: 2.4.18 19.8.0 Segmentation Fault

Im new in using RH 8.0 and Ti 4800SE (no graphics on SuSE 8.1).

I tested 4191 driver as rpm binary (athlon) also as self rebuilded rpm (target i386, i586; i686; athlon) after installation (and before restarting xserver) i'm testing with command glxinfo Each version is crashing with segmentation fault.

I have debugged this command by ddd and this is the result:
Code:
(gdb) run
(no debugging symbols found)...Hardware watchpoint 1: {<text variable, no debug info>} 0x8049d40 <main>
(no debugging symbols found)...Hardware watchpoint 1: {<text variable, no debug info>} 0x8049d40 <main>

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
[Switching to Thread 8192 (LWP 2372)]

(gdb) graph display `x /ob (gdb) run (no debugging symbols found)...
Hardware watchpoint 1: {<text variable, no debug info>} 0x8049d40 <main>`
(gdb) Quit
(gdb)
If I start's X-Sever with this driver, its crashed also (clicks and flashed three or four times and quits)

How can I solve the problems?

Any problems you see before restarting X are not going to be relevant. You need the nvidia drivers in use (both the kernel module and the X drivers) to be able to do anything; so any use prior to reloading X is going to not be using current info.

What you should be doing is rebuilding the NVIDIA_kernel package in X (if you really have to use X at all), editing your XF86Config file in advance, then installing the NVIDIA_kernel in text mode. Exit all the way out of X -- don't even let xdm/gdm/kdm/whatever be running. If they are, then do an init 3 as root in a shell to shut them all down.

Then install the NVIDIA_kernel RPM, followed by the NVIDIA_GLX one. Then make the changes to XF86Config (if you didn't before), and do a startx to test. If that fails, copy your /var/log/XFree86.0.log to somewhere else (like your home directory), undo the changes (here you'd have to use a text-mode editor) or just use Lynx, and attach that log file here.
