X hangs with horizontal white lines on logout
 
lately I upgraded my system from fedora 1 to fedora 2. I graped and installed the latest nvidia driver (5336). X seemed to be fine. But When I logged out the x server, the screen locked up with white horizontal lines across the two screens. Only a hard reboot is the way out.

After I login (run level 3), and start x again, the screen is black and no response.

The only way to get X up running again, is to run it first with the generic "nv" driver, logout and then restart X with the "nvidia" driver.

I have a twin view configuration enabled, but that was not the problem since I tested it out with single monitor also.

I played with the NvAGP option and the problem is the same every time.

The Interesting thing is that this problem does not appear in my amd64 desktop. For which I installed the 5332 driver that is patched for kernel 2.6

I have installed the earlier driver 5328 ( patched for 2.6 ) and the problem is the same.

my favorite fix for any problem is currently adding

Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "DFP, TV"

to the device section

I actually tried that and it did not fix it.

does the kernel 2.6.5 for AMD64 that comes with Fedora2 have the 4kstack limitations as well as the 32bit edition?

If yes, then the problem I am experiencing is not related to the 4kstack option because my nvidia drivers worked fine in my AMD64 box. The problem appears only in the xeon box!

Or am I missing something?
