Hi there,

Keeping trying, but getting less and less optimistic....

These are my latest tries:

I've taken RH8.0 .config file (from /usr/src/linux-2.4.18-14), put it on my /usr/src/linux dir (actually /usr/usrc/linux-2.4.20, linked to /usr/src/linux) after a make mrproper, then done a make oldconfig and rebuilt my 2.4.20 kernel & modules.

I now have a 2.4.20 kernel matching RH8 original .config. SO....

I Have the same kernel options, the same XFree conf file, using the same driver on the same machine and guess what: it's still not working on 2.4.20.

I've tried every AGP option, including disabling it, same result every time.

I've tried barnd new 4363 driver... nothing has changed.

What am I doing wrong??? There is no error in nvidia installer log, no EE line in verbose 5 Xfree log, not even a warning except to tell me that mode clock 65MHz exceeds DDC maximum 60MHz, but I get the same on the RH kernel ! Nothing appears in any syslog.

Did anyone managed to get this card running on 2.4.20 kernel? Any issue I've missed?

Please help, as I'm really getting fed up with building kernel, rebooting... I sometimes feel that I'm running XP !!

Here's attached Xfree log file, using 2.4.20 kernel with RH .config file and 4349 driver (found no difference with latest one) and my XFConfig file, disabled AGP version is:
