Problem with the original NForce
K, I been trying to install graphics drivers for my Fedora 4 box since last year.
NVidia NForce 1 (GF2 MX on-board)
Linux athlon.mshome.net 2.6.16-1.2069_FC4 #1 Tue Mar 28 12:19:10 EST 2006 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux
So far: the default "nv" driver works perfectly, while the NVidia supplied "nvidia" driver is too unstable to even survive a logout. It runs GLXGears, but freezes during that sometimes, and it always has an error on logout. Sometimes the error hangs the system, other times it just crashes X. When it just crashes X, a simple "init 3; init 5" does not fix things too well, even If in the middle I change back to the "nv" driver.
I attach the nvidia bug report thing, which I hope will provide all the useful info for this particular bug.
