Default Nvidia drivers, gentoo, and an almost black screen.

I've recently felt the need to play never winter nights and figured i'd try to get the nvidia drivers working.

I'm running gentoo, stable packages.

When I start x (GDM on login), I get the following characters on the screen:

^[[D^[[C

I can't switch terminals or log in. I can however ssh in.

nvidia-bug-report.sh wasn't working, and I realized the cause was a hang on both of these commands:
#append_glob "/proc/driver/nvidia/cards/*
#append_glob "/proc/driver/nvidia/agp/*"

Trying to `cat` these files results in a hung process, which even kill -9 won't get rid of:
/proc/driver/nvidia/cards/0
/proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status
(The rest of the stuff in /agp/status is fine, i've inserted /agp/card and /agp/host_bridge/ into the nvidia-bug-report.log at the appropriate points)

I can't think of anything else useful that isn't in the bug report.

Looks like you're getting a kernel Oops. Does this problem persist with the 1.0-9629 or 1.0-9742 drivers?

I would like apologize for wasting your time.

It works perfectly with the 9629 version.

Next time, I promise to update before bothering others. I should have known better.
