Re: Xorg, Nvidia -> black screen of death.
I'll take a look at the 4k stack issue, but the 6106 drivers are supposed to fix that (and I've seen other's say it works now).
I did at one point try it without the glx turned on. Same problem, startx followed by the black screen.
Only problem with switching to APM is then ACPI is turned off and then it can't find my agp slot.
I agree, I think there's still a bug or something with driver that's causing some issue between the driver, agp and X. Hopefully someone will be able to confirm it's a bug (and what it is) and nvidia can fix it in the next rev (or tell us what the workaround is). I'm happy with the card, and especially my mobo in 64bit mode (fast as greased lightning). Just disappointed I can't get the video card to go 'that extra step' into agp mode.
Thanks for the ideas, much appreciated!
