Default amd 64 xid error with patch: 1.0-8178-U012206

Hi,

I have applied the latest patch,and tried a number of the ideas found on these forums and am still receiving xid errors when entering run level 5.

The display is blank and X consumes 99% cpu .

I even tried rolling back to a 64 bit fc3 cd install with the 6629 driver and that did not work. The funny thing is, this config used to work, unless I have made a mistake. So I am wondering if faulty, worn out, or over heated hardware can lead to xid errors while starting x? The error patterns seem consistent though, so maybe this is not the case.

It is also possible that there is some i368 library installed that is messing things up? However the ldd glxinfo seems ok.

info:
Geforce 5700 Ultra
kernel: 2.6.14-1.1656_FC4
xorg-x11-6.8.2-37.FC4.49.2
NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-8178-U012206.diff.txt

I removed the livana driver (I was trying out):
rpm -e --nodeps nvidia-glx
rpm -e kernel-module-nvidia-$(uname -r)

And patched and installed the 8178 driver.

I'll walk through the libraries:

^^^Should there be 2 object files here?
Should it be in lib64?

Lonni,

Thank you for taking interest in my problem. The correct file is attached now. I attached my notes by mistake.

BTW: I repeated the experiment with the ultra 5700 on an i386 box with the same errors.

cheers,
Michael
