Re: Driver 9629 Freezes when using 3d stuff
The PPRacer X crash is a known bug in 1.0-9629, and will be resolved in the next driver release.
Regarding the planeshift problem:
0) Have you verified that you're using the latest BIOS for the motherboard?
1) If you boot with the noapic and/or acpi=off kernel parameters, does that have any impact?
2) Have you tested with 1.0-9742 ?
