Default Re: Latest NV Linux Driver on Alienware Laptop

I apologize, it looks like I was wrong. While it's true that when I first installed the machine using the 4496 drivers, I had to set NvAgp to 0 in order for it to work, it appears that's not the case with the 5336 drivers. I'm able to set NvAgp to 1 (use nVidia's AGP drivers) and it works fine.

I might ask what monitor size and resoultion you're using. I had to manually enter some Modeline entries for my 15.4" WXGA screen to get resolutions in the appropriate aspect ratio. Of course, not having them shouldn't cause lock up, just failure to start X.
