Default Riva TNT2 Model 64 Issues

I've previously troubleshooted my personal Debian Sid box with NVIDIA GeForce4, but I can't get the NVIDIA drivers to work on this older machine!

The early packages (from 4363 and earlier) don't build due to a sanity-check bail. I have custom built this kernel with the current Debian Unstable release (GCC 3.3.3). Versions 4496 and onward build ok, but X can't start.

For the more recent 5328 installer (and ideally more bug-free!), I get the following log file that I've included. ALT-F1ing back to the first console shows an error message that the X session was terminated, but no decent errors.

I have tried the following (previously):
- using the minion.de patches and patched versions to manually build
- changing the SDRAM/SGRAM variable in the os_registry.c file (from FAQ)

The "nv" driver works ok, but I'd really love the NVIDIA drivers to build - as this machine is wanted for a Multimedia box (and hence the Xv enabled NVIDIA driver would be ok... I currently only have the X11 overlay working).

Could this also be a VIA chipset issue? My own personal machine is still using the 4363, coz they work perfectly and don't crud my VIAKT333. At the same time, I'd hoped the 4363 would work on this machine, which is also VIAed.

Have I missed an important Kernel support module? I'm cool to rebuild if you can suggest anything.

Having had some follow up from Andy, I've now also attempted the following with the 5328 series driver:
- Using "noapic" as kernel boot parameter
- Recompiling kernel with AGP support as module, to possibly allow for NVAGP to take over (chipset is apparently supported).

... both have provided no success (same errors). More help, pleeeease!
