What MB chipset you guys got? And are you running the VESA fb or Riva fb?
I'm running VESA fb here with nvidia X driver and can switch back and
forth no problems. My old SMP machine with a Virge card always locked
up if i switched out of X and then back to it though...
Cool about Xv, i didn't know the opensource driver supported it.
