X-Server Problems after Xfree86 install

Hiya all,

This is my first message here, and I've got a bit of a problem. I've been using Linux for a while, but still consider myself a newbie

I've tried upgrading XFree86 to Version 4.4.0. I made sure I came out of X first by running telinit 3 from a command line. I ran the installer as per the instructions. After the installer finished, I ran XF86config to do a basic configeration of Xfree86.

I rebooted the computer, and when it tried to run X Server I got the error message :-

INIT : Switching to run level 3
INIT : Sending processes to term signal
assign raw devices :/Dev/DVD [OK]

I then tried to run run xserver by typing start x but got a long list of errors which include (and I hope I got all of them)

_XSERVTranssocketopenCOTSserver: unable to open socket for

_XSERVTransopen: Transport open failed for inet6/localhost.local domain
_XSERVTransmakeallCOTSserverlisteners: Failed to open listeners for inet6
(==) logfile :"/var/log/xfree86.0.log"
(==) using config file : "/etc/x!!/xf86config-4"
(EE) No devices detected
Fatal Server Error
No screen found

XIO: Fatal IO error 104 (connectionn rejected by peer) on X Server ":0.0" after 0 reuqests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining

I've tried running XF86config again as root and chaing the monitor and gfx cards to minimal settings (monitor to VGA and generic VGA card) but with the same settings. I've also tried the generic NVIDIA driver and correct monitor settings as well.

I'm running Mandrake 8.2, monitor is a Gateway EV700 and GFX card is Geforce FX5600.

I really hope someone can help me to get my problem solved.

Thanks all in advance
