(WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
(II) Loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER
How's that for brevity? ;-)

Anything's possible as you well know... :-)
I'm a little under the weather and this testing has put some hurt on my
main Mythtv box, but tomorrow or the next day I think I'll do a fresh
install on a test hd leaving the Nvidia driver out. Then try installing
the 8776 rpm from the dvd. If that works, I can compare the xorg.conf
and /usr/lib/xorg/modules between the 8776 and 9755 installations.
