Exclamation xorg-x11-server error


I have installed FC6 on a Athalon PC with a nVidia Riva TNT2 video card. It has been running for over a month with little problems. yesterday I tried to Install VNC from RealVNC WEB site. Run into some dependancy problems and did not finish the install. When I reloaded the computer, I got a Xserver error all I got was a blank screen with a XServer failure. After getting the command line working, the error log (/var/log/Xorg.0.log) contained the following entries:


Build ID: xorg-x11-server 1.1.1-47.4.fc6

Sat Jan 27 16:29:44 2007
vncext: VNC extension running!
vncext: Listening for VNC connections on port 5900
vncext: created VNC server for screen 0
(EE) AIGLX: Screen 0 is not DRI capable

Backtrace:
0: X(xf86SigHandler+0x81) [0x80c9bd1]
1: [0x24b4420]

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11. Server aborting


I am relatively new to Linux, but I assume I have driver problem with the nVidia video driver. How can I recover or reinstall the correct driver or XServer?

Thanks

look in /etc/X11/xorg.conf
see if the install altered it, look at
Code:
Section "Module"
  Load     "vnc"
  Load     "freetype"
  Load     "type1"
if it did put a # in front of
Code:
# Load     "vnc"
just a guess

I have looked at the xorg.conf. It has not been modified since initalization and there is no reference to 'vnc'. Is there another conf file in another directory?
Thanks foe the reply.

I suggest you update your kernel, kernel-devel, kernel-headers to final release via command line if you have not done so already, and then new kmod-nvidia to match (assuming you have rpm.livna.org set up as a repo). These packages worked perfectly for my nvidia gforce 6800, where prior kernel/nvidia sources all had their faults.

yum update kernel

yum update kernel-devel

yum update kernel-headers

yum update kmod-nvidia

You need to be on-line.
