I installed the latest linux drivers, and when change the driver line in the XF86Config file to "nvidia" (from "nv") startx freezes. I have looked in the readme for the Nvidia drivers, and nothing there helps me. I have let the computer sit to see if it was just frozen, and it didn't work. I can hit ctrl-alt-del to restart though. The only way for me to use X windows system is to change the driver line to nv and when i do that no opengl progs work. I am running Red Hat 9 and I do have onboard that has cause problems on with Windows (and is detected at startup every once in awhile).

After you run startx, a Ctrl+Alt+F1 to go back to your console and see if there are any error messages showing when X startups up. It may be missing something.

As well, when you edit your XF86Config-4 file, besure that under the modules section, that you comment out the "dri" and "GLinfo" lines (place a "#" at the begining of the line)
