grapic card/display

Hello

I have installed FC6 sereral months ago with display problems. I can not change 800X600. If I do I get no screen. Everytime I reboot, I get X windows can not start, do you want to diagnosis or regconfigure. I ran several of the following commands
yum install Kmod-nvidia
rpm --Uvh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-6.rpm

X windows still not starting.

I went to nvidia web site and download drivers, which do not work either. same problem. Silly me I thought they could write drivers for their hardware. At this, point I am not sure if the nvidia drivers blew away, FC6 OS files or not.

I ran
glxinfo | grep direct

direct rendering is No.

I have read and read and read, but I have not found the fix.

I tried this too.

yum install livna-config-display

I still can not change the display setting from 800X600 and I still get X windows fail to load on startup, so I have to reconfigure X windows.

I tried the
sh Nvidia* --uninstall

It did not find anything, but pathing my not be correct. I not sure where executable is located. Newbie Yep.

I would think, that if I used your xorg.conf file, I would have problems, because I do not have a monitor or video card. Should I take part of it?

Try the xorg.conf as it is as it should work fine ( it is generic the name dont matter )

I am confused.
I have to change xorg.conf file and enter this line or change

I currently have this
Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nv"
EndSection

Should I add this line or replace something with BFG Geforce 6200C 256MB PCI = video card

I have to switch to another system.

After cut-n-pasting xorg.conf and rebooting, X windows will not restart. I get the 'normal' dialog box would I like to diagnose or reconfigure. I tried to reconfigure, but no go. so my FC6 system is now command line only.

reviewing the /var/log/Xorg.0.log

There are several warnings at the bottom

The nvidia riva tnt2 model 64/model 64 pro gpu installin this this system is supported through the nvidia 1.0-71xx
