Lame "same here"
Just want to add a lame "same here" to the second problem. When starting X, the screen goes blank for about 30 anoying seconds and then everything works, ut2003, q3, but sometimes (at this time, 6 times in two weeks), the system or either Oopses or reboots.
I have tried to append a "mem=nopentium" at boot time, but when then I've tried to start X, the system reboots.
I had to come back and use the xfree's nv driver.
ASUS A7V333 (VIA KT333)
Athlon XP 2000+
kernel 2.4.19 (and some others 2.4.20-pre, same problem)
Xfree 4.2.1 (Branden's 4.2.1-2)
