X server crashes in FC3T2
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:50 EST
Description of problem:
Installed FC3T2 on a Dell Precision 360. X server crashes frequently.
Installed Nvidia driver 1.0.6111 .... Every time on boot I need to be
root and manually modprobe the nvidia kernel module else X complains
that kernel module not found.
Config: precision 360, quadro nvs280, 1GB ram, 40gb HDD, intel eth, p4
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. login as a non superuser
X says kernel module not found screens not found
normal Xserver start
I get this too with nvidia drivers...it seems that nvidia won't setup

module is present for your kernel (doesn't even need to be loaded),
the nvidia installer won't setup the loading of its own module. I'm
pretty sure you can just edit the scripts yourself to make sure
kerneld loads it on boot, and it should work then.

be able to just add it to /etc/modprobe.conf and have it work.
As Chris said, you should make sure the module is installed by
