I do use the following Software:
*media-video/nvidia-kernel-1.0.6629-r4	(i think i tried other versions too)
*sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.11-r11

Following my Hardware:
*A64 2800
*MSI K8N Neo (nForce 3 250Gb)
*MSI FX5900-ZT
*Zalman 400W PSU
Both video card and CPU have a Zalman AlCu on Top.


  Anything special in your X config file?

Not as far as I can see, but i included the file nonetheless.

Well, i'm a bit ashamed to say, but i dont know where to get that info :|

That should not be the problem, since my hardware is well cooled afaik.
In fact i have a second Gentoo installation on this machine (but only a
32 Bit one), wich doesn't show any problems while emerging, even if i
play D2 simutanously.


Does it only happen with TwinView, or with a

I will try that out later, no time to do so until now.

I dont think so, see my hardware list above.

Where would that option be, just so i can check? (Though i do not think
i would have activated some option like that *g*)


Thanks for your help!
