Unhappy XServer freezes with Shuttle FN41 & Fedora

Hi,

I am seeing random crashes of the XServer on my system. When trying to glxgears the whole system freezes (reproducible).
I have a Shuttle FN41 motherboard with an integrated GeForce4 MX GPU (32MB shared memory).
- Fresh install of Fedora Core 1
- Updated kernel (+sources) to 2.4.22- 2149
- installed gcc32
- ran NVIDIA driver 5336
- edited XFConfig file (to remove dri and set driver to nvidia)

I have been struggling since 2 days with various versions, bu to no avail. Any help or pointers greatly appreciated !

Thanks!!

Does switching AGP drivers (or just disabling AGP) help at all? Your logs and files look fine.

I tried disabling as much as I could in the BIOS... What do mean by disabling the driver ? How ?

Thanks.

Default disabling agp

I would try this in your XF86Config file or even play with the 2 or 3 other options available.

Option "NvAGP" "0"

to your XF86Config it should work. It worked for me. The "NvAGP" worked great. Try it. If it works for you then great! Although I don't know it doesn't seem that you need this but its worth a try.

Adding
Code:
Option  "NvAGP" "0"
to your XF86Config as the above poster suggested will disable AGP usage by the driver.

Thanks for the ideas.

Tried all the different NvAGP options, but to no avail :-(
I also went back to 4496 because I read in this forum that people were having more luck with that. And I set the went back and loaded the fail-safe BIOS settings.

Does anybody have a Shuttle SN41G2 and got the GeForce card working stable ? I am willing to use a different linux distribution if necessary...

Thanks.
