Default Re: NVidia, Tyan k8w, xorg and acpi.

Ok, I ran strace against the out of control X process. You can see the disappointing results below, absolutely no clue:

Process 6598 attached - interrupt to quit
Process 6598 detached

% time seconds usecs/call calls errors syscall
------ ----------- ----------- --------- --------- ----------------
------ ----------- ----------- --------- --------- ----------------
100.00 0.000000

The following is what /proc/interrupts looks like under a black screen of death:

CPU0
0: 237110 IO-APIC-edge timer
1: 8 IO-APIC-edge i8042
8: 0 IO-APIC-edge rtc
9: 2 IO-APIC-level acpi
12: 50 IO-APIC-edge i8042
14: 3653 IO-APIC-edge ide0
15: 19 IO-APIC-edge ide1
16: 189 IO-APIC-level nvidia
17: 7666 IO-APIC-level libata, AMD AMD8111
19: 3 IO-APIC-level ohci1394, ohci_hcd, ohci_hcd
24: 2732 IO-APIC-level eth0
NMI: 199
LOC: 237008
ERR: 0
MIS: 0


Here's when it's working in 'pci mode' (no black screen of death):
CPU0
0: 89826 IO-APIC-edge timer
1: 11 IO-APIC-edge i8042
8: 0 IO-APIC-edge rtc
9: 2 IO-APIC-level acpi
12: 50 IO-APIC-edge i8042
14: 3653 IO-APIC-edge ide0
15: 19 IO-APIC-edge ide1
16: 3157 IO-APIC-level nvidia
17: 7824 IO-APIC-level libata, AMD AMD8111
19: 3 IO-APIC-level ohci1394, ohci_hcd, ohci_hcd
24: 715 IO-APIC-level eth0
NMI: 12
LOC: 89743
ERR: 0
MIS: 0


There are many differences. So anyone have a clue what to do?
