X goes black and utilizes 100% CPU
I've got a problem in my hands that I seem to be unable to fix.
When I use the nvidia graphics driver, my X will not launch properly. When I type "startx" it starts up and my screen turns black. X utilzes 100% CPU at this time and my console is completely wasted. I have to log on using ssh and reboot from there.
My hardware is:
AMD Athlon XP 2400+ CPU
Abit NF7 Motherboard ( nForce2 based )
Gainward Geforce4 MX460 Graphics
1 GB of RAM.
My software is:
Gentoo Linux 1.4_r4, 2.4.20-gentoo-r4 kernel
nvidia driver 1.0-4363 (I've also tried 4349 with the same results)
nvidia kernel modeule loaded
My /var/log/XFree86.0.log is attached and my /etc/X11/XF86Config will come in my next post.
I got some assistance from some guy on the Gentoo user mailing list, so, from what I know the next thing in this log should be 2D support starting up, but it never does.
Any assistance you might be able to give would be really helpful.
