NVIDIA again - X server doesn't start [x86_64]



I still have trouble to use the proprietary nvidia driver with test 3
for AMD 64. I downloaded the driver from www.minion.de /which fixes a
problem with compilier the kernel modules) and could install it
successfully.

According to xorg.0.log the driver is loaded. xorg.0.log says:

(II) LoadModule: "nvidia"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib64/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.0
....
(II) NVIDIA XFree86 Driver 1.0-5332 Fri Jan  9 12:43:30 PST 2004
(II) NVIDIA Unified Driver for all MVIDIA GPUs
(II) Primary Device is: PCI 02:00:0
....
(--) NVIDIA(0): Linear framebuffer at 0xD4000000
(--) NVIDIA(0): MMIO registers at 0xDC000000
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module
(EE) NVIDIA(0): ***  Aborting  ***
(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
(II) UnloadModuel: "vgahw"
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration

I suppose the screen message is a follow up. There is nothing wrong with
my xorg.conf.

I followed the FAQ on the nvidia site but couldn't find a solution.

Did anyone succeed to use the NVIDIA driver with test 3 on an AMD64?


Thanks Peter
