finally it is working!!!
I first stopped the nouveau module and then installed the nvidia geforce gt 630m graphics driver from the site and followed the installation..then
"xorgsetup" and simply set the color depth and other options!!!

now "startx" is working as it should!!


hybrid graphics, nvidia, slackware
