MotherBoard: Matsonic 9047c (533+) - I845D chipset
Graphics: Inno3d GeForce4 mx440 64mb DDR (AGP)
and all other stuff
driver: NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4363.run (latest at www.nvidia.com)
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 should also remove the following lines if they exist:
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 NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-4363.run --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)
