When there isn't a black screen in linux or a blue screen in Windows, the symptoms are just plain image freeze. I can ssh into linux and see X taking 99.9% of the CPU, but on the box itself I'm unable to use the keyboard or mouse. This freeze seems to be triggered by anything that has to do with graphics moving: menus appearing, video played, games, anything.

If I disable agp (option "nvagp" "0") in linux everything seems to run smoothly.

No errors are produced in neither Windows XP nor Suse 9.2, and any configuration other that mentioned make up the same result.

(I am not yet able to start X with the 6629 driver)

Config:
MB: Asus a7v8x-x
Memory: 2x256MB Geil Value PC3200
GFX: Asus/Nvidia MX 4000 (128MB)
Monitor: Samsung Syncmaster 753dfx
I have freezes in 3D under Linux (with "Xid"s in log) and infinite loops under Windows XP too.

(@mistermachine: I think like you... but, i'm happy, that nvidia builds some drivers for there cards...)
it *is* good that nvidia build linux drivers .... it's just *so* incredibly frustrating to wait so long for a new release, after having gone through an unsuccessful hell of patching/compiling/configuration-tweaking/uninstalling/reinstalling/googling/separting-bullcrap-from-true-help.

all to make my card use 3d ... months of hair-tearing ...

and, as someone else pointed out somewhere - *zero word of how things are coming* ...

grrrrrr ....

Notice: the nvidia driver is compiled for XFree86 4.0.2 I believe, while I'm running X.Org6.8.1. Could this be a contributing factor?

Fedora Core 2. - Kernel 2.6.9 - (HacKedInTang)

My system was Redhat 9.0 upgraded to Fedora Core 2. Maybe when it upgraded some of the old XFree86 files were left behind that are messing up the nvidia installer?????
No, because the XORG releases are built on the XFree86 core (look in the release documentation for hte latest XORG package) so it will support anything compiled for XFree86 fine. If anything it should work better on the XORG version.

I've had no crashing problems with the 6629 driver. Originally my X server was crashing all over the place, but since installing the 6629 driver it all works like a charm.

I'm using Xorg 6.7 at the moment.

After reading through a few other forums I've come accross in other searches about X windows I've noticed that alot of the problems are resolved via X updates/patches.
It's mainly due to incompatibility with the X system - upgrade it and patch any bugs/security holes and see if that helps. Then try putting your xorg.conf/xfree86 config file back to the default/build a new one and it should all start fine.

Went though hell after installing the 6629 drivers the first few times with startx throwing up all sorts of errors. This was on an unpathced version though and after pathcing it prior to installing the nVidia drivers all went fine and I was using the nVidia drivers without a problem within minutes on all 3 monitors.

To keep this one alive...

Here's a news flash: I'm have similar problems as everyone else.

I'm running FC3 with a NVIDIA GeForce MX 4000 card. I tried the 6629 driver and the splash screen/black screen problem happened. When I tried the 6111 driver version, it would not install due to an already reported kernel-source problem. Earlier versions fail to install as well. Therefore I am stuck without any graphics acceleration...just the default VESA stuff.

OK, seriously, can any NVIDIA employee give us an update on the status of the next driver? We've all been waiting a long time now...

Over 3 months since the last version...it's due time for an update.

Let's go NVIDIA!

Slackware-10.0/10.1, Riva TNT 2/GeForce4 MX 440. Both of my machines have the exact same problem as every one else's.

Help us developers!

I'm not trying to start a flame war, but if nvidia open sourced their drivers, don't you think this problem might have been taken care of by now?

Nvidia's released driver version 7167, and it is in RPM form for fedora users. I just installed it and it didn't give me any of the crap the 6629 one did!
