SubjectRE: rivafb

I've the same problem. It's seems like a conflict of the nvidia drivers
and rivafb. Try to unload the nvidia_kernel module and use in X the nv
driver who comes with the X, that works (at least with my GForce2 Pro), but if
you do this, you'll loose the nvidia hardware acceleration...
