Angry 3123 locks with gnome mouse dragging!


I've just got my GeForce 3 Ti 200 to work under Debian on my Tyan Tiger machine (running on only 1 CPU tho) using the 3123 - i must of tried every other version in the archive but this is the only one that doesn't compelty lock the machine. (2.4.26 - no smp).

GLX/3d works great - but under gnome (no other window manager tho) when I click and drag the mouse on the desktop to make a selection net over a group of items the friggin machine locks!! Why just gnome?

Jeez I'm getting tired of this NVidia crap. I must of spent 1hr+ everyday in the last week trying to get it to just damn work!!

Any help would be great!

AFAIR, if you have RENDER active&gnome this could cause troubles.

But are you sure, that the newer drivers don't work?
Sounds odd, that an old driver like that should work and the newer not.

Are you using debian kernels or selfbuild from kernel.org sources?
