Hi there

I think you need to do this:

lsmod | less
# this pauses the screen. <space bar> to move forward a screen
# <q> to quit


lsmod > filename
# this will dump the output from lsmod to a file called filename

I only installed Linux for the first time a few weeks ago, so take this with as many grains of salt as you wish...

What worked for me - after installing the driver and making the changes to the xfree86 file, reboot and enter your BIOS settings. There are 2 video settings you'll want to change: 1 - Plug N Play OS? needs to be N, and 2 - Allocate IRQ to PCI VGA needs to be Y. (I'm at work now, so my apologies if I got the names wrong). After doing that, I was able to start X with no problems.

Additional note - I'm dual-booting RedHat and Windows XP, and although making those changes fixed my Linux video problems, XP wouldn't boot back up until I changed them back.

<shrug> Whatever that's worth.

As you can obviously tell, winokungfu is a genius. On their first post, they solved a problem I've had sence june 30, and It worked! Thank you guys for all your help. I learned so much!

Also, while using the "nv" drivers, my memory was always running at 245 of 250 MB in use. Now I see that it dropped to 175 - 220 MB. X and programs run faster as well.

I do:
ls > list
less list
I'm sure there's a better way

I had a problem with the nVidia driver too. I solved it by reducing the AGP speed from 8x to 4x. Now I use the nVidia AGP driver and 8x (something like 'Option "NvAGP"' in the device section)
