Hi, I'm not sure if this has been reported in the past since my search turned up nothing, but I've been having a hard time with the 96.43.11 drivers since Kernel 2.6.29 was released. I've been receiving the following error messages:

Under kernel 18.104.22.168 I don't have this error, X starts up as it should.
I've finally found a workaround for it which involves adding "nopat" to the kernel boot line. However, I'm guessing that the hack is a bad thing and could potentially open up a can of worms.
So I would like to know if there's a long-term fix for this. I'm convinced that it's a kernel-module problem since the module works fine under 22.214.171.124.
