I have the same problem with the latest (5336) drivers in 2.6.2-pre8.
Works fine in 2.4.25-rc?.
It hapens every time I quit the X server. It is frozen so deep that SysRQ keys don't
work and I cannot login from a different computer.
Sometimes I have black screen, sometimes vertical yellow and pink stripes.

I read something that to restore the text mode, the driver needs to access BIOS INT 10. I don't know if can do that just without anything or if it nees a kernel module to be loaded.
Other thing is that I only tested it from vesafb and rivafb framebuffers. I Will try it from a VGA console.

I forgot - I have MSI KT4V motherboard with Via KT400 chipset and a GeForce2 MX 400 card. And X server from RedHat 8.0.

You'll want vesafb (or rivafb) disabled.

michael-mc 02-05-04 11:58 AM

how do you disable it?

Assuming it is vesafb you're using, passing video=vesa:off vga=normal to the kernel (from the boot loader) should do the trick.
