Default Total breakage with 1.0-5336 and 2.6.5-rc1

Just a heads up for anyone trying this combination. I have a 5900XT on an nForce2 motherboard (DFI Lanparty Ultra B) and the newest nvidia drivers/kernel would hard lock my machine every time as soon as I would startx.

I tried Xfree 4.3 and 4.2.1 as well as agpgart, NvAGP, no ACPI, no APIC. Nothing worked. I am using gentoo and I went ahead and emerged the development sources (2.6.4-rc1) instead of the mm-sources (2.6.5-rc1).

Using the exact same kernel config, X works now!

Don't know what the deal is except I wasted a whole day trying to make 2.6.5-rc1 to work. I guess I'll try again when they rev it again.

Hope this helps someone.

Aaron

Recent -mm* kernels forcibly enable 4K stacks for testing purposes; this is known to break current NVIDIA drivers, you will need to revert the 4k-stacks-always-on.patch (see broken-out -mm* archives), disable the CONFIG_4KSTACKS option and rebuild the target kernel.
