Post Strange problem with X and new kernel.

Hey all!
I decided to upgrade to a newer kernel since my previous one (custom 2.4.18), started acting up. So I first I built a fresh 2.4.19 kernel from scratch, and *everything* worked great.

I have an nvidia card, so first thing I did after the fresh kernel started was to 'make clean, make install' the nvidia kernel module. That went great as well.

I fired up X, and it worked as usual, but as soon as I exit X, the box locks up HARD. I thought maybe its the nvidia driver, so I set XF86Config to use the builtin 'nv' driver instead. Same result.

Then 2.4.20 released, so I downloaded it, and build it, again from scratch.. Same result

Anyone know if I missed something vital in my kernel config?
Thanks for reading

I decided to go back to 2.4.18 in while I wait for Slackware 9.0. This seems to resolve the problem
