Default Nvidia-kernel causes X to lock up

I've been trying to get the nvidia kernel to work for 3 days. I have been browsing the boards for help.

Problem: When I run startx the cursor appears and then after a few seconds I can move the cursor, but when I try to do something such as bring up the twm menu X crashes. I am unable to kill C with crtl-alt-backspace or do anthing else at all for that matter.

System specs:
Video card: geforce 4 ti 4200 128M agp
Driver version: 1.0-5336 IA32
Linux Distro: Gentoo 1.4
kernel 2.6.3
Card bios version: 4.25.00.28.00
Processor: Duron 1.0 Ghz
Mother Board ASUS AT266

Files in Logs.log
/var/log/Xfree86.1.log
/etc/X11/XF86Config.txt
/root/dmesg.log

I couldn't figure out how to upload multiple files to the board so had to put them all in one file
Attached Files
File Type: log logs.log (44.3 KB, 121 views)

You may want to try THESES drivers, I had a the same issue sometime back and they fixed it.

Well I tried 5328 and it didn't seem to help. Do have any suggestions for the version to try. That makes the 3rd version I tried. I have used 4996, 5336 and 5328. they all do the same thing.

Well The problem is sortof fixed. I turned out to be a problem with the agp drivers I guess. I turned down the card to use 1x and it worked. I'm going to try the Nvagp instead of agparp eventually. Thanks for the help.
