are you using the "nv" or "nvidia" driver in the video section of your xorg.conf?

What error (if any) did you get on the screen when you tried to start the gui with the nvidia driver? Can you look in /var/log/Xorg.0.log and see if there are any errors in that and post them here?

Failed to start the X server (your graphical interface). it is likely that is is not set up correctly. Would you like to view the X server output to diagnose the problem?

it says Fatak server error: No screens found. so i exit the diagnose page and go to the command line were i enter startx then i get XIO: fatal IO error 104 (connection reset by peer on X server ":0.0" after o requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

here is another thread i started and i tryed to work through the problems with him aswell but i still could not get it to work. there is some information on that page about my problem so if you want to take a look i think it would help out: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=400731

If your problem is similar to one I was having with GLX, the following may help:

I'm not too optimistic though - it looks as though your other thread was quite thorough.

Was there any other error text? Also, did it generate a log file, something like /var/log/nvidia-installer.log? Hopefully, there's something that will identify the problem.

One thing is to make sure that your kernel-source is installed and that it matches your current kernel. That is one thing that will cause a failure building the kernel module you need.

The driver for nvidia needs to be installed, and once it is installed, you need to make sure the kernel module is loaded as well

Once you install the nvidia module, update the X conf file to use the driver nvidia, and then be SURE that nvidia is loaded at bootup, or load it yourself before X is loaded
