Subjectnvidia gforce2 MMX 32meg failure

I just tried to boot 2.6.0-test3, without the advansys driver in the
kernel, intending to test it, but then recalled that the patches
applied to the unpacked
src tree, the
hadn't made it work for test2, so I tried that first.

This script was executed to build the nvidia install, as per the
instructions in the patch:
cd usr/src/nv
cd ../../..
make install
Which appears to build as expected.

That still fails during startx, at about the point where the nvidia
splash screen should be seen, requireing a hardware reset to recover.
I've saved the XFree86.0.log, so what list do I send it for a
pathology report and a new prescription/patch?

Obviously, back on a 2.4.22-rc2 kernel boot. I'll try the advansys
modprobe next.

Side comment: When I shutdown x, and then reboot after sending this
msg, the fact that I've been running a 2.6 kernel will probably be
confirmed by the shutdown scripts being unable to unmount my /usr on
/dev/hda8, and this will be the case until such time as I let e2fsk
scan it, reporting no problems when it does.

To me, that says there is still something a bit fubar with the ide
stuffs yet.

Cheers, Gene
