Default X refuses to start every other time.

my computer:
Ubuntu 5.10 for AMD64
custom linux 2.6.15 kernel
nvidia 8178 driver + U122205 patch
gcc-4.0
nvidia 7800gtx

The driver works fine when I install it until I reboot it for the 2nd time then X crashes out during startup and wont restart manually. If I recompile/reinstall the nvidia driver it works fine till the 2nd reboot. Ive attached the nvidia bug report log.

Any ideas what i could check?

You probably had the driver installed that is packaged with Ubuntu. If so you have to remove the related packages with the --purge option.
sudo dpkg --purge nvidia-glx
sudo dpkg --purge nvidia-kernel-common
sudo dpkg --purge linux-restricted-modules-`uname -r`

ah sorry forgot to mention that I removed those packages already back when I first downloaded the driver. I double checked anyway and found another I hadnt noticed before named nvidia-restricted-modules-common. guess ill find out shortly if that was it.

Ive also looked to see what modules are loading and i dont see anything obvious to me. I dont have fb support even loaded into the kernel so one of those modules is not loading. that was my first guess.

thanks for the input.

Do you have a PCI card or an AGP card? From you output it looks like you are using a PCI card. You might try using a different PCI slot if you have one available, and booting the kernel with noacpi and/or acpi=off

Seems as though linux does not handle interrupts very well on some motherboards due to the incomplete development of ACPI in linux.

Did you check that there is nothing left related to the nvidia driver in the /etc/init.d directory?
