Crashes the closed Nvidia driver for me, and *that* is really bad, since it's the only driver I can use, there is no other functional graphics driver on my computer. I tried fbdev ("does not support EGA/VGA planes"), vesa (graphics corruption), vga (8-bit depth max, totally unusable), and of course nv, which has been broken since blocker bug #182396, which nobody has looked at yet.

Backtrace:
0: /usr/bin/Xorg (xf86SigHandler + 0x82)
1: /lib64/libc.so.6

Hardware: x86_64, Nvidia GeForce 6800 GS 256
Software: Fedora Core/Extras/Livna Rawhide

==========

It did force me to find a workable non-nvidia solution, however. It seems that doing: modprobe vga16fb, and then running the nv driver makes it work (until I restart X, at which point graphics get corrupted again). I also tried fbdev in between, maybe that matters.
