A Tricky Problem

FWIW Brett,
            I run the nVidia drivers, NVIDIA_kernel-1.0-1512.src.rpm/
NVIDIA_GLX-1.0-1512.i386.rpm for the GeForce2 MX chipset, under RH7.1.
Gnome is the RH default.

The console runs with the VGA framebuffer (vga=0x31a). I have
no problems switching consoles. However, occasionally the system will
hang when running wine and this appears to be X-induced.

I haven't managed to get the console framebuffer to run under the riva
driver (append="video:riva-1280x1024"), except for 640x480 resolution.
