mandrake 9.1 and geforce4 mx440
MY config:
MotherBoard: Matsonic 9047c (533+) - I845D chipset
Graphics: Inno3d GeForce4 mx440 64mb DDR (AGP)
and all other stuff

driver: (latest at

I don't have time to read all the threads, but I went through some and didn't found any solution to my problem.

I install driver as shown in 'readme'. (with 'sh'). the driver installation went well with no errors. It showed me message saying that all i have to do is to change 'XF86Config-4' file as shown also in 'readme'.

But when i try to startx it just wount do it.

In XFree86.0.log is entered this:
(EE) [GLX]: Failed to add GLX extension (NVIDIA XFree86 driver not found)

how is this possible if installation went OK!???

Here is my log and config file for XF86...: in attachment named

I also noticed that nvidia module wount start (so is it nvidia kernel problem or Linux kernel incompatibility with nvidia ?)

Would it helped if i recompile kernel ? (how do i do that on mandrake 9.1?)

Please someone to help me out!

When you'll read attached file (in XFREE86Config-4) I used driver "nvidia" when these errors occured, but if i change back to nv the X works (but with no 3D and Tux racer don't start)

You can see attached file here:

Did you replace this line in your XF86Config file:

Driver "nv"
(or Driver "vesa")


Driver "nvidia"

In the Module section make sure you have:

Load "glx"

You should also remove the following lines if they exist:

Load "dri"
Load "GLcore"

I solved it
Yes I edited the nv to nvidia but it wouldn't work.

Finally i got it to work by using

'uname -r' dommand that showed me which kernel am I using and then as it shows in Manual started te script by
sh --kernel-name='the name that returns command above'

And I must say it is working (I got NVIDIA splash screen and TuxRacer is working much better)

Tnx, Anyway
