Default Recompiled Kernel freezes

I recently recompiled my kernel from the stock and most things work fine.
I am able to run Quake 3, Unreal Tournament, bzFlag and many other 3d
things fine.

I do have some weired problems however. If i am in Xfree86 and i
CTRL+ALT+F# to a base console the console cursor rather than being one
white block is 4 purple squares. Upon doing a CTRL+ALT+F7 my computer will
freeze with random crap on the screen the only thing i can do now is a
hard reboot. If i don't CTRL+ALF+F7 back into X and try to kill the x
process then the computer also freezes. I have noticed that games that use
SVGA seem to freeze the computer also and somthimes just playing a 3d game
will freeze it. I am woundering if it has anything to do with the framebuffering but my computer wouldn't start with out it (just a blank screen)

I am running Linux Slackware 8.1 with kernel 2.4.18 On a ASUS 7700 Delux
(GeForce 2 GTS Delux 32mb) with the NVIDIA 2960 driver.

Make sure you aren't using rivafb as framebuffer, that fb can cause these problems. (and other problems)

You should use vesafb instead or no fb.
