Nvidia GEforce 5200


I am unable to get this deevice to work on my system. When starting x the following errors are received: fatal server error: no screens found. I have followed the ubuntu installation instructions(download nvidia-glx and ran the following command to enable the configuration) but still no luck. I'm running ubutnu dapper drake. Any suggestions?

Maybe you can post your /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /var/log/Xorg.0.log?

It might help to find some error in your installation.

Anyway, here is my xorg.conf ( just the parts concerning graphics adapter ):

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "nVidia Corporation NV28 [GeForce4 Ti 4200 AGP 8x]"
# Option "RenderAccel" "true"
# Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "true"
Option "NvAGP" "1"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 16
Modes "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024"
EndSubSection
EndSection

#Section "Extensions"
# Option "Composite" "Enable"
#EndSection

You could insert these lines in your xorg.conf and see if it works ( expect maybe the line with "boardname" )
