Nvidia RIVA TNT2 / RIVA TNT2 Model 64 on both, one with 16M one with 32M.
Nvidia non-free modules compiled on both (at the time). Both machines running
Sid, with daily updates. Both running 2.6.12-1.

Both been overwritten, unfortunately. SOLVED SOLVED SOLVED - by removing
the Nvidia non-free drivers. Stock X.org appears to work fine - but now
my PenguinRacer is going to be horrible :)
And yes, I should know better: I have read ESR on how to ask smart
