Lightbulb Re: 8800GTX driver9746 Tyan S2915 X lockup

Just so you don't feel alone I also have an S2915 (SAS version and I have two 15K RPM drives). I'm running dual 2212 procs with 2GB of DDR2 667, an 8800GTX, 24" wide screen monitor and the latest BIOS update.

I'm running 2.6.20-rc6-mm3 Kernel because I love pain. Getting the nvidia drivers to work with this Kernel was a challenge. I'm running the latest 9746 driver and awaiting future driver updates to improve beryl and fix the black windows bug. Keep those updates coming Nvidia team so I fully utilize this awesome card in my favorite OS, Linux! ^_^

Anyway, the nvidia-settings tool is a good start for an xorg.conf file which you can build off of. Here's my xorg config which I made using the nvidia-settings tool and adding extra items to it (Compositing extensions, device settings and fonts pretty much). This is working quite well on my machine running a pure beryl window manager:
