Default Freeze on X shutdown or change to console


Another one of the infamous switch-to-console freezes.

When the nvidia drivers are installed, the machine freezes on a change to console or X shutdown. Complete freeze - nothing except a hard reboot works. This _only_ happens with TV-out enabled; if I disable TV-out everything works fine.

I just rolled back the drivers to 3123 - now everything works again - newer versions, no-go.

This is a Palit Daytona GF4 Ti4200 AGP8X. I am running Debian Sid (Woody also tried, same problems).

This is a Thunderbird/1200 on a Asus A7V133-C (KT133A-based - BIOS 1009, PCB 1.05).

I am running 2.4.21-rc3 - the same trouble happens on 2.4.19 and 2.4.20. I have tried disabling ACPI and APIC (normally enabled); I am not using APM or nvidia-framebuffer. No changes in the kernel configuration helps.

I have tried almost anything related to AGP or PCI settings in the BIOS; no go. No IRQ sharing is taking place with the graphics card.

Attached is the XFree86.0.log.
