Re: Weird things with Xorg on amd54

Just use module assistant to build the nvidia blob driver.

Add non-free to your /etc/apt/sources.list

apt-get install module-assistant
m-a prepare nvidia
m-a a-i nvidia

apt-get install  nvidia-glx nvidia-settings

in 2.6.32-5-amd64 nouveau will load during kernel boot. so after you build and install the nvidia blob driver, it will be loaded instead. however as for that boot up session, i couldnt find a way to rmmod nouveau, and modprobe nvidia and go in to X. but reboot was quick and my up time was already lost from the kernel upgrade :)

The 2.6.32-3-amd64 kernel works fine.

you running the fglrx or nvidia driver by any chance?  If so
probably just have to rebuild the module against the new kernel

module-assistant.  of course the nvidia driver is moving to dkms


It seems that the "nouveau" driver don't work on amd64, I have tested
and revert to the "old" nv driver.
