Another NVIDIA question


I installed both the kernel and GLX files on my Mandrake 8.2 machine. When I tried to edit my XF86Config file, I typed:

cd /etc X11/XF86Config-4 and got "no such file or directory"

cd /etc/X11XF86Config and got "this is not a directory"

I typed /var/log/XFree86.0.log and got "permission denied" even as root.

I'm looking at the man pages now for XF86Config but haven't found any answers yet.

Any ideas?

/etc/X11/XF86Config-4, that's the file. You can use, for example
joe /etc/X11/XF86Config-4
(if you have joe installed), or the same with any other editor.

I typed: vi /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 and got a column of ~ down the left side of the screen. At the bottom it said:

/etc/X11/XF86Config-4 [New File] 0,0-1 all

There was no text to edit.

OK. I found the file with emacs. The nVidia instructions say to make sure I have Load "glx" in the module section and to remove "dre" and "GLcore" if they exist. I have the following in my module section:

load "dbe"
load "v41"
load "Type1"
load "freetype"

Do I just add the "glx" line and I'm done?

You should just be able to add it and then save like the instructions state. And be sure to remove the dre and Glcore if they do exist.
