GTX 275 only shows blank, black screen under Linux 2.6.30 on Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5
I'm running into some issues getting my GTX 275 card working under Gentoo Linux.
I'm running a 2.6.30-gentoo-r5 x86_64 kernel and X.Org 126.96.36.1991. The underlying hardware is a Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 and Core i7 860, and the card works great under Windows 7 with the 191.07 drivers.
Specifically, when trying to test the server using "Xorg -config" my DFP flashes off briefly, and then lights up again, but shows a blank, black screen. Keys like NumLock continue working, and I can Ctrl+Alt+F1/F7 to switch between virtual consoles, but Ctrl+Alt+Backspace doesn't kill the server. (I end up using Ctrl+C or SysRq+RE to kill the server.)
There doesn't appear to be anything useful in the log files, and it appears that it should be working:
I've tested using both the stable 190.42 and beta 195.22 Unix drivers with the same results. Attached is my kernel .config and the output of nvidia-bug-report with -logverbose 6 under each of the driver versions.
I also tried the "nv" and "vesa" drivers with similar results.
I've been playing with various settings for a few evenings now without luck, so any ideas or help would be appreciated.

What exactly is the command line you're using? If you're just starting X, the expected behavior of modern X servers is to show a black screen with no cursor until a client connects and tells it to do something. Also, Ctrl-Alt-Backspace was disabled in recent X releases. It sounds like the X server is operating as designed.
