I've been suffering instability with my system when I run 1.0-8774 (and also with whichever version immediately preceeded 1.0-8774). My system is running Solaris 10 update 2 with the latest patches applied.

I can run for weeks or more with zero problems using just the "nv" driver, but my system freezes usually within a few hours of installing and running the nvidia driver. I created the xorg.conf using the nvidia tool and haven't tweaked it at all. My graphics card is an evga GeForce 6500 (pci-e) in an otherwise stock hp 7330 media center pc.

In the last 6 months or so, the pc worked fine with other OS's, and again, I have no stability issues with the nv driver.

I've dumped a bug report, but it's far too long to post.

Can someone point me in the right direction for troubleshooting? Or if there are nvidia folks here, what do I do with this bug report? I'd be happy to share just the helpful bits if you tell me what parts are important.

Thanks,
Simon

Please check if the problem reproduces with the 1.0-9625 BETA driver; if it does, please generate and attach an updated bug report (you can compress it with zip, if necessary).

I tried the NVIDIA-Solaris-x86-1.0-9625 beta driver this morning. Shortly after installing and rebooting, I poked around the nice control panel, changed my monitor resolution once or twice in it, then launched mozilla. Within 5 minutes or so my system froze.

I don't know if using a browser seems to provoke a crash moreso than just my xterms/gnome-terminals, or if more often than not I have a browser open so it's just a coincidence that mozilla or firefox are running when the host freezes.

Nonetheless, attached is a gzipped bug report. 20745

Thanks,
