I've been over the archives for the last two month but couldn't find any info
about my specific problem.
I updated xorg a couple of days ago from an older version (running sid).
Please don't ask what older version - it's been a while.
After that the xserver started crashing after a couple of hours.
That wasn't a big surprise since I run nvidia binary drivers.
Figured I reinstall the nvidia driver and throw in a new kernel for good
xserver is 1:7.3+10
nvidia : version: 171.05
Unfortunately the xserver is still crashing.Well I figured since the nvidia
installer gave me a warning about the kernel being compiled with a different
version of gcc I just walk away and use the nv driver since I don't care
about 3d anyway.
Unfortunately the nv driver also crashes :-)
This is with a 7600GS and a nforce 650i motherboard.
Does anybody have any suggestions what might be the problem here?
The only thing I could think about doing right now is downgrading xorg but
that might open a whole new can of worms...
