Neal,

There are "extra" files there (nvidia8 - nvidia15) which is curious


and


the permissions on those files are wrong. It may be a result of the
various things that have been done OR it may also very well be the
result of the particular nVidia card you are using which perhaps
requires the additional files.

I went back through the thread and unless I missed it, I did not see
mention of which card you have. I have the GeForce FX Go 5200, on a


Dell


laptop.

Try to run:

ls -l /dev/nv*

and see what output you get there.

At this point, I think that I would in fact recommend that you run


the


two udev related commands, just to be sure. That will also solve the
permission issues.

I have a Geforce 2. Here is what I get.

What two commands are they?



The two commands are:


cp -a /dev/nvidia* /etc/udev/devices
chown root.root /etc/udev/devices/nvidia*

Be sure to run these as root from a console.

In actuality, these will not solve the permission issue, so after
running the above, as root, also run:

chmod 0666 /etc/udev/devices/nvidia*

That should take care of it.

I have a feeling that the nvidia8 - nvidia15 files might be superfluous,
but without your starting from scratch on this, there may be no other
way to be sure.

If you are planning to move to FC4, that would be a good time to start
again from a clean system, so for the time being, if this is working for
you without subsequent problems, I'd leave it as is after running the
above 3 commands.

HTH,

Marc





Ok, after running those 3 I get the following.

there isn't any difference is there? I didn't compare them line by line but just glanced over the output
