Re: [vox-tech] X server help

If I use "nvidia" as the driver, it won't initialize my card.  The
NVIDIA site say to call it "nv".  That seems to work for initializing
the card.

I do have the same versions of NVIDIA_GLX package and NVIDIA_kernel
installed (1.0-4191).  I have the line
Load    "dri" commented out and don't have the GLcore line.  I also have
the line
Load    "glx" _not_ commented out.
