I've a GeForce2 MX and I was using release 4191 when it used to freeze my display just trying to open any KDE app. KWord, Konqueror.. anything. None of the virtual terminals work either. SSH-ing into it from my laptop would be only way to safely power it down, if you dont want to pull the plug on it. Upgrading to 4363 fixed it.
If you have an nvidia card and you're using a really old nvidia driver, I would recommend upgrading.
my 4363 got some issues with glut.h. I've to unistall nvidia driver inorder for me to compile openGL programs... these are the errors:
/usr/lib/libglut.so: undefined reference to `glXBindChannelToWindowSGIX'
/usr/lib/libglut.so: undefined reference to `glXQueryChannelDeltasSGIX'
/usr/lib/libglut.so: undefined reference to `glXChannelRectSyncSGIX'
/usr/lib/libglut.so: undefined reference to `glXChannelRectSGIX'
/usr/lib/libglut.so: undefined reference to `glXQueryChannelRectSGIX'
I hope the new one have to the fix for this... Is kinda pain to uninstall nvidia diriver every time I want to compile stuffs and reinstall it again to play the stuffs...
My scroll mouse is working fine now, I use Buttons 5 and the zx thingy, it's great.
As for XF86Config-4, I've tried all that more than 6 months ago and I've never had working 3d graphics on this card (with Linux).
