XF86Config Questioni


Ok, I just installed Mandrake 9.1. Now I'm no noob to Mandrake or any other popular distrobution for that matter, but for some reason I could not, for the life of me find the "modules" section of the XF86Config file, now call me crazy, but I can't find it. If someone could to tell me what I need to write to the file to add this section of the file then I'd give them 16 rotten bananas and maybe another prize lol. I just need to know what needs to be added to the XF86Config file so that I can load the "glx" module. Gracias and buenos noches.

Code:
# **********************************************************************
# Module section -- this  section  is used to specify
# which dynamically loadable modules to load.
# **********************************************************************
#
Section "Module"
# This loads the DBE extension module.

    Load        "dbe"  	# Double buffer extension

# This loads the miscellaneous extensions module, and disables
# initialisation of the XFree86-DGA extension within that module.
    SubSection  "extmod"
#      Option    "omit xfree86-dga"   # don't initialise the DGA extension
    EndSubSection

# This loads the font modules
    Load        "type1"
    Load        "freetype"
    Load        "speedo"

# This loads the GLX module
    Load       "glx"

EndSection
From XFree86-4.3.0 (Slackware 9.0).

For some reason I'm still receiving an error that says "Could not start kdeinit, please check your copy." Any ideas as to why it would do that after I've installed the latest Nvidia drivers?
