Nvidia GeForce 4 MX 4000 Fedora Core 3 "I have problemas in instalašao"

Good day... I wanted aid to install drivers for the Fedora the 3 Cores I I made everything what I was in this aid but so that logon does not leave is with logon of the nvidia... wanted aid if instead algem to be able to help... thanked to Installed

Installed Nvidia Driver
12 November 2004

Fedora Core 2 and newer uses Redhat's X.orgs X-server instead of the
official XFree86. This creates some minor differences.

The currently available version is the 1.0-6629 driver from Nvidia.

Login as root to text console <CTRL><ALT><F1> (or F2,F3,F4)
disable X-server, install driver, re-enable X-server:

# init 3

# sh

EDIT /etc/X11/xorg.conf (see below)

# modprobe nvidia
(*** PROBLEM: read below ***)

# init 5

Changes to /etc/X11/xorg.conf

ection "Module"
add (if not already there):
Load "glx"
comment out (add # in front of them, if they are there):
#Load "dri"
#Load "GLcore"

("glx" and "dri" were there for me, "GLcore" was not)

Section "Device"
change from:
Driver "nv"
Driver "nvidia"

CURRENT PROBLEM: The new udev included in FC3 seems to prevent
the nvidia module from loading automatically.
There are 2 options:

Recommended Fix

# cp -a /dev/nvidia* /etc/udev/devices
# chown root.root /etc/udev/devices/nvidia*

Only if above does NOT work

EDIT /etc/rc.local

ADD the following to the END of the file:

/sbin/modprobe nvidia

Other Kernel Issues:

If you update your kernel the NVidia driver must be re-installed to
match the new kernel.

Most all information available from Nvidia. Read more:
