Re: Xorg, Nvidia -> black screen of death.
I tried commenting out load dbe..same hard-lock. ....but.....YES....I stuck a 5200 card in, edited X config file for new boardname 0x0322 and bam! X is up and running! No hard-locks!!!
I remember not to long ago X having issues with the 5700 chipset. Maybe this code still needs some tweaks...
drumz: Is your 5700 card made by eVGA? Just asking becuase mine is...needless to say I wouldn't recommend anyone buying a 5700 card until this little bug is fixed (It could only be manifesting itself within our hardware config becuase they are essentially the same....)
