Quote:
Once it’s done, you should find yourself with a new xorg config in /etc/X11/xorg.conf; but don’t start X back up just yet, you need to strip some lines out of the xorg.conf so as not to confuse X. In Slackware 13.0+, xorg takes its information about your input devices from HAL (see Slackware 13.0 – Xorg + Hal). NVidia doesn’t acknowledge this and adds default entries in the xorg.conf it creates for a mouse and a keyboard.

i did what he said:
goto tty6, init 3, remove those lines(i take the input lines)
then run startx and x never shows.

luckly i backed up xorg.conf/xorg.conf.bak.
and x starts up, no problem.

>.<

Then you probably didn't remove the "InputDevice" lines in the "ServerLayout" section.

I'm going to sleep. Needless to say the link gives you step by step every single thing you need to go from a clean Slackware system to one with a properly installed and configured nvidia driver.

So long as you actually read it properly.

Your profile says Slackware 64. If that's the case, your xorg.conf looks funny for a 64 bit system:

Code:
Section "Files"
    FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc/:unscaled"
    FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/:unscaled"
    FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/:unscaled"
    FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/misc/"
    FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/"
    FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo/"
    FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi/"
    FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/"
    FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/cyrillic/"
    FontPath        "/usr/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/"
EndSection
Notice the path.


Mine looks like:
Code:
 FontPath        "/usr/lib64/X11/fonts/misc/:unscaled"
    FontPath        "/usr/lib64/X11/fonts/100dpi/:unscaled"
    FontPath        "/usr/lib64/X11/fonts/75dpi/:unscaled"
    FontPath        "/usr/lib64/X11/fonts/misc/"
    FontPath        "/usr/lib64/X11/fonts/Type1/"
    FontPath        "/usr/lib64/X11/fonts/Speedo/"
    FontPath        "/usr/lib64/X11/fonts/100dpi/"
    FontPath        "/usr/lib64/X11/fonts/75dpi/"
    FontPath        "/usr/lib64/X11/fonts/cyrillic/"
    FontPath        "/usr/lib64/X11/fonts/TTF/"
EndSection
Did you change the ARCH variable and download the proper driver for 64 bit?
