8174 with Quadro and 16G RAM
1 Attachment(s)

We are having Problems getting Linux machines with Quadro Cards (PNY 285 or 540) running. Installing the 8174 Drivers is no problem, but starting X freezes the machine. With 2G RAM it is working- even with 4 when disabling hardware and software memory mapping, but with 16GB of RAM the system freezes instantly. Mainboard is either Supermicro H8DCE or Tyan 2892 with 2 270 Opteron CPUs each. Kernelversion is

Any hints appreciated,
Michael ****ner!

Please generate and attach an nvidia-bug-report.log file; does the kernel panic when X is started or does the system just hang?

The System dies. I created a logfile mounting / sync, so there is a little bit more to read.

Thanks in advance,

PS:my nvidia-bug-report.log is 107.7kb in size- which is too large to attach. I created an archive, containing also the log created by X while mounted sync.
PPS: Why are .tgz or .tar.gz attachments not allowed?

Re: 8174 with Quadro and 16G RAM
I have a few questions:
0) Does this problem reproduce with the latest SLES9-SP2 kernel?
1) Here is a problem, although certainly not the cause of a full lockup:
(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib64/modules/extensions/libglx.so
dlopen: /usr/lib64/libGLcore.so.1: invalid ELF header
(EE) Failed to load /usr/X11R6/lib64/modules/extensions/libglx.so
(II) UnloadModule: "glx"
(EE) Failed to load module "glx" (loader failed, 7)
How did you install the 1.0-8174 driver?
2) Does this problem reproduce with 1.0-7676 as well?
3) This looks suspect:
PCI-DMA: Disabling AGP.
PCI-DMA: More than 4GB of RAM and no IOMMU
PCI-DMA: 32bit PCI IO may malfunction.<6>PCI-DMA: Disabling IOMMU.
If you boot with the "iommu=memaper=2" kernel parameter, does that have any impact?
