in the meantime i've found several forum- and blog posts where people claim

downgraded to 2.6.35, which apparently does work.

i got that pretty much confirmed now: 2.6.36 does _not_ work with nVidia.
following some forum or blog post i came across, i downgraded to kernel 2.6.35,
which still lives in one repo:


[the name "factory" must come from the time when 11.3 _was_ "factory" i
it installed fine on 11.3 tonight.]

this kernel deals better with the lag caused by Xorg using too much CPU and
drivers compile w/o problem.

i observed another interesting fact: using multiple monitors (2 in my case), if
you set them to "separate X screens" and then "enable xinerama," that's much
heavier on the CPU than using them as "twin vies." no idea why that is so, but
it's very obvious on my system.
