I am having issues with my new video card MSI 8600GT. Xorg fires up properly and everything is fine as long as I am within X. The moment
I try to switch one of the VCs (c-a-f1/2 etc) or exit X, all I get is blank screen and no response from KB/mouse etc. Soon the monitor goes into power save. The only way to fix is reboot. Occasionally, I will see blank screen with X running having very similar syptoms.
I have noticed that Xorg runs with almost 100% cpu utilization whenever blank screen event happens. Also, with my prior card I did not have this problem (prior card was EVGA nvidia 7600GS)
I run stock etch kenel from amd64 distribution latest xorg with nv driver. Here is exact info
