Doesn't seem so. 2.6.18 produces the same error.

1) What kind of motherboard & graphics card are you using?
Tyan K8W Dual Opteron S2885ANRF, with two Opteron 244's (MB is 8X AGP). The card is a Club3d Geforce 7600 GT for AGP with DVI and VGA.

2) Have you verified that you're using the latest motherboard BIOS?
Yes.


Just to reiterate: the startup and most of the stuff works fine with the older 9631 nvidia-drivers, but these tend to randomly freeze completely after about 20min in a wm like compiz.
