Well I just finished compiling my new kernel and I boot into it no problems. Then I go and reinstall the nvidia driver and adjust xorg.conf from the nv driver to the nvidia driver and added in the nologo option along with renderaccel and the nvagp option. I save and exit. Type in startx and it went to the blank screen like it normally does before loading KDE and then it dropped back to console with this error message:
_XSERVTransSocketOpenCOTSServer: Unable to open socket for inet6
_XSERVTransOpen: Transport open failed for inet6/baud:0
_XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: failed to open listener for inet6

the log said pretty much the same thing except it had a lot more useless text to me. Anyone wtf went wrong? I'm not using agpgart or anything..... Please help because I have no clue what went wrong. I haven't tried it yet with just the nv driver to see if it is working in 2.6.7 but I know right now it is working fine back on 2.4.26 with the nv driver.
Also a smaller question of lesser importance: In the xorg.conf file in the video card section there are 2 Driver "driverhere" entries. Just curious if I should comment out the top one because it is a different driver. Anyways heres what it looks like:
# The BusID line is used to specify which of possibly multiple devices
# this section is intended for. When this line isn't present, a device
# section can only match up with the primary video device. For PCI
# devices a line like the following could be used. This line should not
# normally be included unless there is more than one video device
# BusID "PCI:0:10:0"
# VideoRam 256
# Clocks 25.2 28.3
# Device configured by xf86config:
Identifier "** NVIDIA (generic) [nv]"
Also if anyone wants to see the log file just ask and I'll post it but I figured there is enough text in this post as is.
