NO WORKABLE DRIVER for Acer AS4741G 432G32Mn (GT330M) and Ubuntu 10.10 amd64
 
From 256.44 to current beta(270.26), there is not a single version that can work with this system. The kernel module always gets crashed when Xorg is starting.

Now using nouveau, GPU hangs up every 1min to 2 days.

No responses or even excuses?
I thought nVidia was a big company.

Now you are seriously trolling, expecting an answer 46 minutes after your initial post without even providing the basic information needed for debugging.

Seems like an overheating/hardware defect problem to me ;)

Nouveau is a reverse engineered driver so it is very common for it to lock up the GPU.

I've been quite upset these days as it has almost ruined my work. And I have to finish a report before tomorrow. 46 min is not short at all. In big forums the should be several replies within 5 mins.

I am getting support from nvidia's official technical support page. It takes me some time to notice the link in the bottom of the page. So administrators, you can lock this thread if it is needed.
