    this hang here. Things to check:

    1) what it complained about when doing the 'make install' of the userspace.
    2) What /var/log/XFree86.log (or wherever your X server output goes) says - it's
    usually pretty good about logging what it's upset about.
    3) Make sure you have a sane setting for "Option NvAGP" in your XF86Config that
    matches what your kernel has. It's documented in Appendix D of the README....
