Exclamation Recent drivers and VT switch


My configuration is:

- video card: GeForce4 420 Go
- driver version: 1.0-4363
- distribution: Debian
- video bios revision:
- processor: mobile AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2000+
- motherboard model: VIA82C686, on a Sony Vaio FR 102 notebook.

The problem: the version 4363 of the driver runs fine, while if I try to upgrade to 4496 or 4620 I'm not able to switch to VT's using Ctrl+Alt+F1,F2,...,F6. In particular, when I switch to a VT, I get a completely black screen. The computer doesn't lookups, and I'm able to switch back to X11 with Ctrl+Alt+F7 without problems.

Using driver 4363 with kernel 2.4.23 was not a problem, but now I'd like to upgrade to 2.6.0, and AFAIK I'm forced to use the 4620 driver. I need to switch from VT to X11 often, so this bug prevents the whole upgrade.

Please, help me, this is a serious problem here.

Thanks, Pasquale
