nvidia drivers bugged with FX 5600 ?
 
I am an advanced Linux user.
I have a NVIDIA FX 5600 video card.
# lspci
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV31 [GeForce FX 5600] (rev a1)
# lspci -n
01:00.0 Class 0300: 10de:0312 (rev a1)

My card works fine with XFree86 nv driver.
My motherboard model is ASUS A7A 266.
My processor is AMD Athlon 1400 MHz.
My version of XFree86 is 4.3.0.1
I tried NVIDIA drivers 4496, 4620 and 5328.
I tried on Debian GNU/Linux woody(stable) and sid(unstable).
I tried on a kernel 2.4.22 and 2.6.0

NVIDIA Drivers installation was not so hard. I tested with the nvidia installation and compiled manually.

My big problem is that I start XFree86, no nvidia logo but the screen is black and full of white and colored strange characters. And the same result in all cases (driver verions, kernel versions, distributions).
I obtain this type of freezed screen:

In XFree86 logs, all seems to work ! No error logs !
And I must to kill XFree86 with a ssh connection...

hmmm
 
I have FC1 w/ 2.6.0, XF4.3 and 53.28 and so far no problem...it boots nicely.
Haven't tried Enemy Territory yet, though.

Athlon 1400MHz w/ Abit KG7 and 512mb ram, FX5600.

Yeeaahh !! :D
I resolved my problem !
It seems that AGPART bugged...
I put in my XFConfig-4:
Option "NvAgp" "1"

$ glxgears
10064 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2012.800 FPS
11140 frames in 5.0 seconds = 2228.000 FPS

Finally I am with kernel 2.6.0, Debian GNU/Linux sid, and package XFree experimental 4.3, and NVIDIA drivers 5328.
