i am using slackware 12, 18.104.22.168 NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.01-pkg1.run, asus a7n266vm board, i had the same problem xlockup the only way was to reboot the machine.
after struggling with nvidia freezing today i was able to get x working with NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.01-pkg1.run nvidia driver, after editing the xorg.cong file after adding
to "Device" Section.
still that draggy effect is there X is buggy, it is very difficult to use x.
shall i try
- installing the old driver " NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8776-pkg1.run" and patching, as mentioned earlier
- do i, also need to manually patch, for the 22.214.171.124 series kernel, actually that patch looks for some other drivers
any help is appreciated
