Thank you nvidia, super driver as usual. My tv out works great, my opengl
stuff run faster than before and the nvidia-settings util is very useful.

Now to my problem:

Every time i come back home, the system has frozen. I can see the screen
saver on the TFT, but its 'stuck' and no keys can reboot or do anything, so
i have to power-off the machine in order to get it back.

The specific screen saver has been running fine with the 'nv' driver for
over a year now, so i dont think this is a bug in the screen saver.

This is NOT an opengl screen saver, just an ordinary 2d, called "Phosphor"
and comes by default with xscreensaver. I've now changed to an opengl
screensaver ("BlockTube") and haven't had this freeze since!

Here is a description of my system:
Fedora Core 2 (latest kernel)
GNOME 2.6 window manager
Asus A7V600 motherboard (VIA KT600 chipset, agp 8x)
AthlonXP 2100+
NVIDIA GeForceFX 5600 (Asus VideoSuite, agp 8x)

$ cat cards/0
Model: GeForce FX 5600
IRQ: 11
Video BIOS:
Card Type: AGP

$ cat *
