Re: FX 5200 + Debian Etch won't work for me.
Well I've solved one problem, I borrowed an older Fx 5200 (this time with 256MB RAM) from my neighbour and I get no lockouts, no crawling, etc. so I'm even more convinced it's a faulty card...
glxgears runs very flickery for about 5s then quits with the message "Aborted". Beryl starts up but freezes fairly soon after but Xorg doesn't eat the CPU and it's easily quit by logging in remotely and killing startkde.
I've tried disabling composite and setting NvAGP to 0 (and 1 and 3) but there's no difference.
Progress but not there yet. Any ideas on this one please?
