Indeed. I even made sure the old modules were completely wiped before I
installed a clean set of modules from mercurial.

The only way I could get this dmesg output, was to boot off the
kernel. Even under the recovery kernel, attempting to start or load X
any way (kdm, gdm, or startx) results in a complete and utter
crash/freeze. You cannot get out of it without a system reset. You
even get into an alternate tty to kill the process. It just locks.
I guess my question at this point is twofold:
1) is this, as Steve suggested earlier, a problem with core videobuf?
is it the nVidia driver? The hang point seems to be when nVidia gets
invoked and X Starts. kdm/gdm do not even seem to get a chance to load.
2) What, if anything can I do to get it to work, or help you guys
out where the problem is? I am open to being a guinea pig in any way I
can to help get this solved. =)
The compile runs fine. The modules install fine. Something else is

You went way, way over my head with the start up and stuff like that. I basically turned my computer on, walked away for 15 minutes. Anywho, I would be willing to be a test subject also, but I am rather new to the linux thing, and very new to the driver compiling.
