Question GeForce 7100GS + Kubuntu + nVidia driver = crash

Hello. I have the same problem as many: NVidia drivers doesn't works in KUbuntu 7.04 Feisty Fawn (but they worked in KUbuntu 6.10).

I have:

Motherboard: ASUS P5VD2-X (BIOS upgraded to the last available)
CPU: Intel Pentium D 945+, 3.40 GHz
RAM: 1 Gb DDR2
HD: 80 Gb SATA II
Monitor: Samsung SyncMaster 750s (CRT, 17")
Video card: sentey; nVidia GeForce 7100GS, 256 Mb, PCI-express
Modem: 3com, PCI, (yes, that old thing for use with a phone line... I live in Argentina)
Advantek TV capture card w/FM (bt878)

Since the stable 1.0-9755 and the beta 100.14.03 drivers appears to have the same behavior, I will make the report based on the beta 100.14.03 driver.

Once installed (and updated) Kubuntu 7.04, I installed:
* build-essential (that gives gcc, make and other tools)
* linux-headers
* pkg-config
* xserver-xorg-dev

This commands outputs may help:

$ cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.20-15-generic (root@palmer) (gcc version 4.1.2 (Ubuntu 4.1.2-0ubuntu4)) #2 SMP Sun Apr 15 07:36:31 UTC 2007

After the installation (stand-alone, not connected to internet), I edited the /etc/default/linux-restricted-modules-common file:
DISABLED_MODULES="nv"

and reboot.

After rebooting, Nvidia logo appears too big, and not in the center of the screen (does this matter?) and the X menu in the log screen turns inactive.

Then, once logged into kde, when the main menu (or any application, like yakuake or katapult) is opened, the system just crash.

The attached files are taken after rebooting (I don't have another computer to try ssh linking).

Then I try adding the NvAGP=0 option in the xorg.conf file, as recommended in other posts, reboot again, but the same behavior occurs.

Then I tried shutting down kdm and launching “startx -- -logverbose 6” from tty1, but again the system crashed as before. The "nvidia-bug-report-after_NvAGP_0.log" file attached was taken after rebooting.

I also tried the “agp=off” option at booting, but nothing happens.

I'm missing something?

Thanks!
