Default Geforce Go6200 + 2.6.11 + xorg = freeze on Gnome startup / X crash


i've just got a toshiba tecra m4 laptop with a Geforce Go6200 chip. i'm trying to get things going with Ubuntu Linux 5.04 (which uses xorg), using the 2.6.10 and 2.6.11 kernels. here's what i'm getting:

- with the default Ubuntu "glx" driver i get the Gnome login prompt but when i log in Gnome stalls in the splash screen. you know the drill; the mouse pointer works, the startup sound plays, and nothing else happens.

- with the 7667 driver + 2.6.10 and 2.6.11 kernels installation goes without failure, but the same thing as above happens. i'm 150% sure that i have "GLCore" and "dri" commented out and "nvidia" specified as the driver in my xorg.conf file.

- with the latest driver + any kernel x is totally broken and i get the famous "i cannot start the x server blah blah" error.

- with 6xxx drivers i still can't get past the splash screen.

i've had bad 2d performance with my former laptop which had an ATI graphics adapter, thus i decided to get one with a NVIDIA adapter this time, and i have an absolute mess in my hands now.. any help is very much appreciated.

From my understanding of the problems that you described, you seem to be running into issues with both the nv & nvidia X drivers, which suggests an overall stability problem. Have you verified whether a newer BIOS is available for your laptop?

Also, please generate and provide an nvidia-bug-report.log for review against the 1.0-7676 driver.
