Re: Xorg, Nvidia -> black screen of death.
(unfortunately) Happy to hear that someone with very similar hardware is having the same problem. ONce my friend gets his card in, we'll get his system going and then swap my card in for his (another co-worker has an identicle box and it's working fine for him under Suse, but it's the 5700 Ultra I think.
I've filed a bug report with nvidia, have you done the same? Maybe if we get enough people sending in reports we can get some attention and get some action.
