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).

The way the XF86Config files work is this...

If XF86Config-4 is present it is used ... otherwise XF86Config is used...

The GLcore thing is very important ... make sure it is remarked out.

In the file /var/log/XFree86.0.log you will have the errors logged why X couldn't start ... you can use the command:

cat /var/log/XFree86.0.log | grep "(EE)"
