Thank you for your answer. I have XF86Config in /etc/X11. I have fiddled
with the configuration file to no avail. First thing I did was to change the
driver "nvidia" for the one loaded by default ("nv"). I also set up the
modules as the file README. Linux (in the NVIDIA driver package) instructs,
and I haven't been successful. FAQ in the package do not address the
problem, let alone the Handbook.
