Re: 8174 hangs my laptop on starting X
Imperito: setting NVreg_Mobile=1 does prevent the hang (see my previous posts and bug reports), but the zero pixel clock means that the video is unusable.
I'm sorry to hear that TV-out is not working; I use that quite a lot.
7676 works perfectly for me; until the bugs are worked out of 8174, I will stay with that. Hopefully it won't take too long for Nvidia to figure out what's wrong.
