Every time i do a coldboot the x-server crashes, after a reboot everythings fine. Tried with nouveau and proprietary nvidia(with kernel cmdline nouveau.modeset=0 and blacklisted nouveau). Free "nv" driver works without problems.

Code:
inxi -G:
Graphics:  Card nVidia G84 [GeForce 8600 GT] tty res: 271x69 Gfx Data: N/A for root user
inxi-S:
System:    Host home-of-squeeze Kernel 2.6.32-5-686 i686 (32 bit) Distro Debian GNU/Linux squeeze/sid
Tried with:
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-100.14.09-pkg1.run
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-180.35-pkg1.run
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-195.36.15-pkg1.run (installed now)
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-195.36.31-pkg1.run
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-256.29.run
nvidia-kernel-dkms (with and without sgfxi)


For what i have tried so far and to see the logs please ping to http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.p...6d7b14ee5fd6e0.

Any help would be very appreciated!!!

Attached bug report after error occured.

A lot of work has been going on inside Debian for Nvidia driver support.

OpenCL is now supported and dkms will auto install 195.36.24-4 for ia32 and amd64 architectures.

You can install from nvidia-kernel-source if you like as well, the debian way.

If you have this added to your /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://ftp.oregonstate.edu/debian sid main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.oregonstate.edu/debian sid main contrib non-free

you'll pick up all those packages.

I just filed a request for the latest release, which will get done very shortly, now that there are three members supporting nvidia.

My card: Nvidia 8600GTS 256MB Ram

Packages installed:

nvidia-libopencl1-dev
libcuda1-dev
libcuda1
libcuda1-ia32
nvidia-libopencl1
nvidia-libopencl1-ia32
nvidia-opencl-common
nvidia-opencl-icd
nvidia-opencl-icd-ia32
nvidia-vdpau-driver
nvidia-glx
nvidia-glx-ia32
nvidia-kernel-2.6.32-5-amd64 [195.36.24-1]
nvidia-kernel-common [20100522+1]
nvidia-settings [195.36.24-1]
nvidia-kernel-dkms
dkms


The bold ones will get nvidia installed on your system.
