Xorg 6.8.2 on RH ES4 2.6.9-22 crashing


Just installed the 1.0-8174 driver from Nvidia. I run startx and the screen goes blank. Then it flashes back to prompt with no errors messages on the screen. I didn't see any errors in the log either. Any idea what is going on?

i don't use these but have been following the banter
both RENDER and COMPOSITE extensions in xorg appear to be unstable or unsupported fully by nvidia yet or something.
try this and then enable stuff slowly from here
composite and GLX canot coexist without AllowGLXWithComposite
but better to leave composite off altogether
Code:

Section "Extensions"
  Option  "Composite" "Disable"
  Option  "RENDER" "Disable"  
EndSection  
 
Section "Device"
  Section "Device"
  Identifier "Videocard0"
  Driver "nvidia"
  VendorName "Videocard vendor"
  BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce 4 MX (generic)"
  Option  "RenderAccel"  "false"
  Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "false"
End Section

Thanks for the reply, Foo. I added those lines to my xorg.conf and got the same results (startx, screen flashes, back to prompt, no errors/warnings). I checked the log and it recognized the changes. Maybe a previous version of the driver would work? Or I could take option 3 and downgrade Xorg.
