    Default startx doesn't work

    Hi all,
    I have an anthlon 800Mh with Riva TNT2 computer and Suse 11.0. I updated last day the Xorg server to the last version from Software.openSUSE.org and after reboot could not start kdm. I installed nvidia driver by following the steps from NVIDIA - openSUSE -> "Legacy chipset support". Tried to run X and startx but the programs stop with the following error:

    Have read some forums telling that the nVIDIA-Linux-x86-71.86.06-pkg1.run is incompatible with the latest Xorg server.
    Came back to nv driver.

    Thanks.
