Default GeForce4 MX 440 - X - blank consoles


Wondering if this has been knocked on the head.

The last usable driver for be has been 4496. I have been using minion.de's patched for kernel 2.6 until now, it won't compile for 2.6.10. I have been told I should use an 'official' driver.

BLANK CONSOLE (VTs) when switching from X. Works fine with the 4496 driver from minion.de upto kernel 2.6.9.

I have tried the latest driver 6629 with kernel 2.6.10 and get the same problem, with or without the FB.

Is there any solution? If it is a firmware upgrade, where do I find the upgrade?
