  1. Since I was doing this on my work computer I had to get it back up and running, so I went back to trusty ol' Linux Mint, who always treats me right Thanks for your help guys, I'll have to figure out what happened another time
  2. Hmm...all that's in the src folder is 'kernels' and redhat' Running make oldconfig && make prepare in either folder gives me an error: make: *** No rule to make target `oldconfig'. Stop. Am I stupid here?
  3. How do I run 'make oldconfig && make prepare' on kernel src to fix it?
  4. I uninstalled the 173 driver using the --uninstall flag, then installed the 169 Still the same problems, it's like the 173 driver won't go away
  5. I have everything required to install the drivers When I try to use the nvidia driver in xorg I get the 'failed to load kernel module' error Here's the installer log: nvidia-installer log file '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' creation time: Thu Aug 6 10:39:32 2009 installer version: 1.0.7 option status: license pre-accepted : false update : false force update : false expert : false uninstall : false driver info : false precompiled interfaces : true no ncurses color : fals
  6. Ok, I did a search for 'nvidia' in the package manager and removed anything related to it I just ran an upgrade with yum and it claims nothing needs to be upgraded Should I rerun the nvidia installer now?
  7. What do you suggest I do then Bruce? I run through the installer, it compiles the kernel, does all of it's stuff, it asks if it can modify the xorg.conf file and I say yes, then I reboot and startx What am I doing wrong here?
  8. After trying that and starting x I get 'failed to initialize NVIDIA kernel module' Now I'm back to the 'nv' driver just to run X Why can't I figure this out?
  9. Here's something I found in my Xorg.0.log file: (II) LoadModule: "GLX" (WW) Warning, couldn't open module GLX (II) UnloadModule: "GLX" (EE) Failed to load module "GLX" (module does not exist, 0) Could this be of any help?
  10. The driver from Nvidia's website Linux Display Driver - x86 Version: 173.14.20
  11. Alright, reinstalled the driver, still don't seem to have glx installed correctly, here's my current xorg.conf after reinstalling the driver: # nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig # nvidia-xconfig: version 1.0 ([email protected]) Thu Jun 25 19:52:48 PDT 2009 # Xorg configuration created by system-config-display Section "ServerLayout" Identifier "single head configuration" Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0 InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer" InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard" EndSection Section "Module"

  14. Hey guys, I've installed Nvidia's drivers with no issues, but I can't seem to get glxgears to run properly. I'm running CentOS 5.3 and a GF 5200 video card. Here's my xorg.conf: # Xorg configuration created by system-config-display Section "ServerLayout" Identifier "single head configuration" Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0 InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer" InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard" EndSection Section "Module" Load "GLX" EndSection Section "InputDevice" # generated from default Identifier "Mouse0" Driver "mouse" Option "Protocol" "auto" Option "Device
