Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm in trouble since I've installed the nvidia 2313 driver. I have the NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2313.rh72up.i386.rpm and the NVIDIA_GLX-1.0.2313.i386.rpm.
X don't start...........
My RH7.2 Linux version is 2.4.9-31.
Here's my sample XFree86.0.log file:
(II) Setting vga for screen 0.
(II) Loading sub module "vgahw"
(II) LoadModule: "vgahw"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libvgahw.a
(II) Module vgahw: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
compiled for 4.1.0, module version = 0.1.0
ABI class: XFree86 Video Driver, version 0.4
(**) NVIDIA(0): Depth 16, (--) framebuffer bpp 16
(==) NVIDIA(0): RGB weight 565
(==) NVIDIA(0): Default visual is TrueColor
(==) NVIDIA(0): Using gamma correction (1.0, 1.0, 1.0)
(--) NVIDIA(0): Linear framebuffer at 0xD8000000
(--) NVIDIA(0): MMIO registers at 0xD6000000
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVdriver kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***
(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
(II) UnloadModule: "vgahw"
(II) Unloading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libvgahw.a
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.
Fatal server error:
no screens found
And here's my XF86Config-4 file:
# XFree86 4.0 configuration generated by Xconfigurator
Load "dbe" # Double-buffering
# Load "GLcore" # OpenGL support
# Load "dri" # Direct rendering infrastructure
Load "glx" # OpenGL X protocol interface
Load "extmod" # Misc. required extensions
Load "v4l" # Video4Linux
# Load "pex5" # PHIGS for X 3D environment (obsolete)
# Load "record" # X event recorder
# Load "xie" # X Image Extension (obsolete)
# You only need the following two modules if you do not use xfs.
# Load "freetype" # TrueType font handler
# Load "type1" # Adobe Type 1 font handler
A nvidia kernel driver built specifically for the 2.4.9-31 kernel is
available from the Nvidia.
Hopefully that will push you in the correct direction. When X will not
start in the manner you described use Crtl-Alt F5, log in as root,
uninstall the non working RPMs, fix your XF86Config-4 file and restart X.
I encountered a similar problem when I upgraded to the latest kernel
Also the documentation provided by Nvidia on their web site is worth a read if you have further problems.
tar -xvzf NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-2880.tar.gz
tar -xvzf NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-2880.tar.gz
here is the module section of my config file
# Load "GLcore"
# Load "dri"
