Can't find 'ini:Engine.Engine.GameEngine' in configuration file


Exiting due to error
Could you please explain how you got your Nvidia drivers working? I have a Compaq Presario v3000 with the same onboard gfx card:

> hwinfo --gfxcard

  [Created at pci.286]

  Module Alias: "pci:v000010DEd00000244sv0000103Csd000030B5bc03sc00i00"
  Driver Info #0:
    XFree86 v4 Server Module: nv
  Config Status: cfg=no, avail=yes, need=no, active=unknown

Primary display adapter: #19
I installed the drivers through YaST as described here, but as soon as I rebooted the system init 5 failed. A quick look at my xorg.conf file shows that the 'nvidia' driver was installed, however the only way to get X11 to start is to modify the xorg.conf to load the 'nv' driver instead (default setting before installing the new driver).

Here's a log of the error I receive when using the 'nvidia' driver:
X Window System Version (7.2.0 RC 2)

I know I have a different distribution (openSUSE 10.2), however I'm pretty confident whatever you did in Ubuntu should work here. Besides, there over 40 threads about 'GeForce 6150' and I didn't want to start another unnecessary one.

I have had a similar problem. Nvidia installer (script) on ubuntu.
Tho, my GLX driver does not want to load. Don't really want to reinstall my whole system.
A full(er) soppy story can be found at:


geforce, glx, nvidia
