Default Re: 1.0-8174 for Linux x86 released

If so, I would like to know what kind of Linux distribution so that I can test the driver on a freshly installed system.

The Xorg.log stops at the exact same place as it did with the 8168 driver by the way...

Thanks in advance
I only can confirm that i have the same situation like you have.
on my toshiba sattelite 1415-s115 with 'nVidia Corporation NV17 [GeForce4 420 Go] (rev a3)' i`ve got black screen and total freeze, even SysRQ-ALT-B does not help. I have kernel 2.6.14-2-686 from debian unstable. The previous driver at least allowed to startup X... and then freeze as soon as GLX was used. nice work Nvidia.
