Default Re: Problems with 173.14.35 and xorg 1.12

The 173.14.35 driver is working well for me with a similar setup as yours. (FX5200 -128MB, Debian Unstable with X.Org: I am using the 3.4 series kernel (3.4-trunk-486) from Debian experimental, I've never tried a -rt kernel version.

I know you said you "obliterated" all traces of the nouveau driver but I'm wondering if the nouveau kernel module has been blacklisted?

There should be a /etc/modprobe.d/blahblah-filename.conf file with the following line:
blacklist nouveau
to stop the nouveau kernel module from loading at bootup.

Instead of a nouveau blacklist file in the /etc/modprobe.d directory, you could also disable the loading of the nouveau module in grub with either the nouveau.modeset=0 or nomodeset option. {according to the "Kernel command line:" line shown in your Xorg.0.log you aren't using either of those options}
