From what I read on test-list it seems that NVIDIA's current graphics driver, 5336, gets borked not by the new x.org server but by kernel-2.6.3. I get a black screen and an unpingable box every time. Anybody else have the same results?

ASUS A7N8X Deluxe 2.0/Barton 3200+
GeForce FX 5600

Known: you cannot use a kernel with 4K stacks and the nVIDIA driver until they rebuild it to be compatible (waiting on nVIDIA for this, and they do know about it)

CONFIG_4KSTACKS=y in all new development kernels.
Rebuild the kernel (make rpm without the above option)
