Default Linux 2.6.18 rc4 - preventing lockup with X - pci=routeirq

This is just a note for anyone who has a lockup problem when starting X with the nvidia driver. (system hangs with a blank screen at the point where X starts up).

Try adding making sure that your kernel has ACPI and set the kernel boot option pci=routeirq in grub.conf.

This took me a long time to find out.

I have an nforce 3 board (as far as I can remember) with a GeForce 6100.

My next problem is not an nVidia one - why does my mouse appear to go dead in Enemy Territory? (still works fine in a text console with gpm running).
