Default X and Linux crash with kernel 2.4.20 & 2.4.21


When I use the NVidia driver (the last 4363 and the previous one) with a recent kernel (2.4.20 or 2.4.21), my system crashes when I launch X.
The NVidia kernel module is correctly compiled and correctly loaded but when I launch X, my screen becomes black and nothing happens (as I cannot use Ctrl+Alt+PrintScreen+B, I think my kernel is also dead).

I had no problem with my 2.4.19.

I own a GeForce2 Ti and a motherboard based VIA KT266A.

Does anybody have encounter a similar problem ?

Default yeah

Me too...

Using 2.4.20, 4363 XF86 4.3.0

I've got picture though. It hangs just a couple of seconds in X and is completly dead. Neither I can use SysRq keys. And the CPU is running wild.

As it's written in another post, you should disable acpi in kernel parameters (in lilo.conf) with "acpi=off".
This solution was found yesterday by someone in another thread.

I hope it resolves your problem.
