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.

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! - -- Marcel Treis trei4702@×××××××××.de -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.1 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Thunderbird - iD8DBQFC02Xu4FZB9iOldXURAgTwAJsEb7pJsa8UuVtfixGOb2ymgDL48wCeMhTV udnB7xqpDH+trQ2YVRdG1rw= =GEBl -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
