nvidia fx5600 loads vesa driver instead of nvidia driver
 
hi there. i have a bit of a problem. i have been working on this one for a while now with no sucess yet

it seems as though even though i have installed the nvidia drivers for my FX5600 that when x starts it still loads the vesa driver. i have tried diffrent XF86config files i have modified the driver section for the display card. it was orriginaly vesa i changed it to nvidia no luckk i changed it to nv, no luck. im still not too great at trouble shooting this OS and i will need some help to figure this one out. here is my XF86Config file and my xfree86.0.log file

It also says its loading dri which isnt in the file. Did you perchance overlook a little file called.. XF86Config-4 ?

i looked in /etc/X11/ to see if there was that file but there is not. at the top of the config file i have made available it says its for xfree 4 so i am going to try to rename that file to XF86Config-4

it seems that it was loading a config file that was in my /root dir everything seems ok in the logs but i am working on this over telnet so i will have to doubble check it when i get home
