Hi List,

I have been using the Nvidia beta drivers for some time now ( version
1.0-3203 ) flawlessly without any problems, well except for one or 2
problems with Xscreensaver and OpenGL. Yesterday I tried loading the
latest non-beta release 1.0-4365 and all it does is freeze my PC and
then after a few seconds reboots without so much as a single error in
XFree86.log or messages.
I am using the following card, taken from dmesg: nvidia0: <RIVA TNT2
Model 64>
I made the necessary changes to my XF86Config file ( see attached ) to
include the "NV Agp" driver and also had to take out one or 2 items
namely "pex5" and "xie" which worked fine with the beta drivers. 
Lastly, I then tried using the FreeBSD agp kernel option ( loaded via
kldload ) and disabled the Nvidia agp driver but still my PC freezes and
reboots.

I have resorted back to using the beta drivers for the time being but
was hoping that maybe someone has a solution to the problem I'm
experiencing ? I also noticed that someone else has been experiencing
this problem at
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=14 but there
was no solution.

Thanks and regards,
Nelis
