Re: stability problem + glxgears aborts and freeze
I've installed the beta drivers 1.0-9626, and verify that all was properly installed (symlinks, etc). Installation was ok, but the problem persists i.e. glxgears cannot run without aborting and then freezes. And random freezes are still there.
More precisely, I've observed that glxgears, for both nvidia and nvidia beta drivers, is more stable (i.e. runs a more long time) in full screen than in a little window. I don't know why.
I'm not sure the problem comes from the bios as I've already had a stable 3D acceleration and all that with a previous Linux + nvidia drivers installation (the legacy and glx ones + Debian if I remember well).
So, the problem is still open ...
