xorg Nvidia No Matching Device...

I cannot get my X server to work.
Running CRUX. Installed xorg and nvidia driver.
Machine : Averatec 2370 with GeForce GO 6100 video card that has worked well in other distros with nvidia driver.

Used nvidia-xconfig to create xorg.
lspci shows video card on BusID of 0:5:0

After startx I see nvidia logo then I'm back to terminal screen with the following info
(WW) NVIDIA: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:0:10:3) found

That is also the only warning listed in Xorg.0.log.

In my xorg.conf I added under "DEVICE" section BusID "PCI:0:5:0" since lspci lists it as such. Yet i still get the same error searching for something at 0:10:3. Shouldn't my BusID statement fix that?

When I check lspci I don't see anything listed at 0:10:3.

The drivers are installed so I am guessing it is something to do with your xorg.conf file.

Post this file to the forum.
