stability problem + glxgears aborts and freeze
The latest nvidia-drivers cause stability problem to my newly installed 2.6.17-r8 Gentoo Linux amd64 kernel.
These are random freezes without any key responding, the bug can be easily reproduced by running glxgears : it aborts, and after some two or three runs, it freezes. The same problem occurs on Debian Etch/Sid, and Ubuntu.
I use a amd64 X2 athlon CPU, and a GeForce 7500 LE (the computer is HP-Compaq SR1917FR).
I have tried various boot options, including acpi=off, idle=poll, and modified xorg.conf file without success.
Any ideas ?
