I am running 256.53 on amd64 current (r213747). I don't use anything
linux (the module isn't loaded) and built the driver with all options
off except ACPI_PM. My custom kernel does not have "device agp".
I use XFCE 4, don't really run anything graphically intense, and
shutdown at night. I haven't had any problems, but IIRC from your past
threads, the issues sort of build over time so I simply may not be
aggravating the problem enough.
The system is a HP Pavillion dv6405us laptop with a GeForce Go 6150.
This is a pretty crappy card, even in Windows (the whole system was
$500 3 years ago - it was one of those computers that supposedly was
"Vista Ready" but could barely boot it), so I doubt I am gaining much
over vesa though.
