I have tried to use the gentoo-dev-sources (2.6.7-gentoo) and the latest nvidiadriver ( NVIDIA Linux x86 NVIDIA Kernel Module 1.0-5336 Wed Jan 14 18:29:26 PST 2004 ) as said in this forum but everytime i try to startx i only get a black screen.
I am not using the 4kb stack option:

# Kernel hacking
#
# CONFIG_4KSTACKS is not set

syslog shows the following:

If anybody cares i was able to solve the problem.

It was caused by the ehci_hcd module that was loaded on boot.
Although i don't have any usb 2.0 compliant devices the kernel loaded the module and after not finding any devices the logfile showed the following:

irq 5: nobody cared!

So it seems the kernel "deactivated" the interrupt after not finding any usb 2.0 devices. Unhappily irq 5 is also used by the nvidia module so the kernel wasn't able to access the graficboard which caused the hardlock.

The following thread helped me solving this problem: http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=188410

Whoopee!! Someone has finally tracked down the cause of the nvidia black screen X bug!

I can confirm that removing EHCI (USB 2.0) support from my 2.6.7 kernel is the only way of fixing this issue, along with losing USB 2.0 support.

It seems like a brand new bug in the 2.6.7 kernel. Roll on 2.6.8!

You got that right, but not only nForce it seems. My nVidia inspiron also suffers

hmmz,

no nforce2 chipset.. p4c800 deluxe motherboard.

gentoo-dev 2.6.7 without usb-ehci neither compiled in nor loaded as a module.

---> IRQ #18.. Nobody Cares

Anyone have an idea? I tried kernels with the following module-combinations:
- only ohci
- only uhci
- ehci and uhci
- ehci and ohci..

Problem persists with Gentoo-dev 2.6.7, while Gentoo-dev 2.6.5-r1 is perfectly allright.

Try "cat /proc/interrupts" on your shell and take a look which modules are mapped to irq 18.

Under 2.6.5-r1 (where I can boot into the system):
Code:

 16:     145358          0   IO-APIC-level  uhci_hcd, uhci_hcd
 18:      12989          0   IO-APIC-level  ide2, ide3, uhci_hcd
 19:         76          0   IO-APIC-level  uhci_hcd

--> it is the uhxi_hcd, and the ide-channels.

accoridng to lspci -v I do need uhci : (prog-if 00 [UHCI]) on several occasions.

hmmz.. IS kernel 2.6.7 just b0rked?

iv been using 2.6.7 for awhile and only just last week got the black screen problem. see my posts at http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=215506
is there an version that works from just before that time? what could have caused it. i do use usb2 so is there a version that works?

edit:
so i answered my own question through trial and error. development-sources-2.6.8.1 worked for me using nvidia drivers version 1.0.6111
