If you are using Redhat Try XFree86 -configure command and create a new XFree86 file Then move it to the X11 directory then try to restart the X server

Post the log,I don't use mandrake but mine is /var/log/xorg.0.log
We need to see what is happening when the nvidia module is loading,if you are getting the splash screen it is trying to load.Don't need the whole log only near the end.
also might as well post your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 <not sure of the syntax ,don't use mandrake>

did you read the README?


Q: My X server fails to start, and my X log file contains the error:

"(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module!"

A: Nothing will work if the NVIDIA kernel module does not function properly. If you see anything in the X log file like "(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module!" then there is most likely a problem with the NVIDIA kernel module. First, you should verify that if you installed from rpm that the rpm was built specifically for the kernel you are using. You should also check that the module is loaded ('/sbin/lsmod'); if it is not loaded try loading it explicitly with 'insmod' or 'modprobe' (be sure to exit the X server before installing a new kernel module). If you receive errors about unresolved symbols, then the kernel module has most likely been built using header files for a different kernel revision than what you are running. You can explicitly control what kernel header files are used when building the NVIDIA kernel module with the --kernel-include-dir option (see`sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6629-pkg1.run --advanced-options`for details).

Please note that the convention for the location of kernel header files changed approximately at the time of the 2.4.0 kernel release, as did the location of kernel modules. If the kernel module fails to load properly, modprobe/insmod may be trying to load an older kernel module (assuming you have upgraded). cd'ing into the directory with the new kernel module and doing 'insmod ./nvidia.o' may help.

Another cause may be that the /dev/nvidia* device files may be missing.

Finally, the NVIDIA kernel module may print error messages indicating a problem -- to view these messages please check /var/log/messages, or wherever syslog is directed to place kernel messages. These messages are prepended with "NVRM".

Do you have a TNT2 card? The newest drivers didn't work for it, had to use the 5336 drivers.

did you check the nvidia log - it should be something like /var/log/nvidia-installer.log

also are you sure the HorizSync and VertRefresh values in your X config file are correct for your monitor? check your monitor manual or look up the specs for it.

if that fails, try running xf86config again

If X worked before you installed NVIDIA drivers, and you didn't starting changing random things in the X conf file, its most likely that NVIDIA driver isn't working properly. Also, the message pretty much says that the NVIDIA driver isn't loading properly.

Did you you the .run NVIDIA provides or an RPM? I've used both with success, but I hear the .run works better for some people. Plus, the .run will compile exactly for your kernel, and with an RPM, unless its compiled for your exact kernel, it probably won't work.

Wait, maybe I'm crazy, but the log you posted shows NV loading. The NVIDIA driver doesn't even appear to try and load. I don't even see where it fails in that log. There doesn't appear to be any errors, that AUDIT thing at the end isn't really a problem, is it?

Was that log made before you changed NV to NVIDIA in the config file by some chance?

HI,

possibly your edit of the config is wrong

you need to replace nv with nvidia in the
Section "Device"
Identifier "Card0"
Driver "nvidia"

in Modules just make sure glx gets loaded and dri does not
