Default 1.0-4349 + 2.4.20 + Sis 645: HELP !!!

Hi there,

I'm experiencing problems trying 1.0-4349 driver, but I guess I am doing something wrong. Here are the facts.

On My RH8 box using default kernel (2.4.18-14), install scripts works fine, X works (I guess fine).

On the same machine, booting on my freshly compiled 2.4.20 kernel, after executing install script with succes, X freezes before logo display, just showing weird characters (especially ) sometimes colored, sometimes B&W. At this point, CTRL+C won't do anything, CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE either, I can't switch to an other term, all I can do is CTRL+ALT+DEL which reboots the machine.

As I don't change anything but kernel, I guess I made something wrong selecting options.

I've spet several hours trying pieces of advice found on this forum, tryied several NvAGP options, rebuilt my kernel several times... still nothing working. The last line in XFree log is: (II) NVIDIA(0): Setting mode "1024x768"

The machine is a PIV 2.53 on a Sis 645 based board with a GeForce4 MX 420 card.

You'll find my .config file attached, as I really suspect this is the point.... I'll post XFConfig & log if you need them, but I've used the log (verbose 5 mode) to check my compiling options, there's no EE line anymore.

Thanx in advance for your help
