another problem with xawtv. there it freezes sometimes when i resize the tv window - or when xawtv runs and i try to start any other application (mostly firefox)

My System Info:
XFree 4.3.0 on debian testing,
Kernel 2.6.11,
Nvidia driver 7174
i use the nividia AGP module, not agpgart.
Motherboard chipset VIA KT400
Card: XFX GF6600 GT

I use a dualhead Setup with two TFT-Screens. No TwinView, No Xinerama.
Configured as described in the Nvidia-README. ( Appendix R, multiple X Screens on one Card).

Use agpgart not the internal nvidia agp as it's known to be unstable.
