Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

According to log i already have drivers installed... so
rpm -qa | grep nvidia
result is nothing!
Tried modprobe nvidia
[root@localhost source]# modprobe nvidia
FATAL: Module nvidia not found
when looking at xorg.conf, driver is picking up nv (not nvidia) if i change it to nvidia - X doesn't work (i guess cause drivers are not installed!)
Where do i go now? I have tried a lower kernel (188.8.131.52.24) and lower drivers (6111)
but still have same messages..
djc_slip is online now Edit/Delete Message
i couldn't solve that problem, i think i did once but i had no GUI. That actually happened twice. So i just decided to go back to my favorite distro RH9 .. I'll go back to MDK10.1 when the GUI installer is released for the nvidia drivers.
