Question: I have a RIVATNT2 card with 32Megs RAM, and I tried for the
first time to use 3d graphics acceleration.

It sort of works, but:

a) I got this thick yellow (with black stripes) vertical line that
appears in the bottom right hand of the screen.

b) GL xscreensavers all seg-fault when run full screen (but work fine
when run in a Window.

I tried disabling AGP, but that didn't seem to help. I reverted back
to the nv driver, but the same problems still occurred (except now the
cursor was also corrupt), and the only way I could fix this was by
rebooting the computer.

Any ideas?
