I have an old nVidia GeForce 6XXX card and i try to breathe life into the "nv" driver, but no avail.

I tried with this xorg.conf:

Code:
Section "Device"
Identifier "Generic FB"
Driver "nv"
Option "NoAccel" "True"
# Option "ShadowFB" "False" #
EndSection
But didn't work. Can anyone give me an example xorg.conf for the nv driver for this card?

Please be more elaborate, "it doesn't work" doesn't tell us much.

Remove the whole xorg.conf, you don't need it any more.

Then create /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/driver-nv.conf:
Code:
Section "Device"
  Identifier "Generic FB"
  Driver "nv"
EndSection
If it doesn't work for you post your /var/log/Xorg.0.log on Pastebin or a similar service.

Try sysctl hw.ofwfb.relax_mmap=1 before you use X, Xorg or startx. This has solved the issue in the past.

I've attached my xorg.conf here, which works fine on my G5 with a GeForce 6600. I may be wrong, but you probably need to be using VT as well (default for the last couple releases anyway).
