Re: A few problems with 9742 Beta and 8800 GTS
Problem #3 is a known bug which will be resolved in a future driver release.
I have a few questions:
0) If you disable the console frambuffer graphics, does that help with problem #2?
1) If you boot with the irq=poll kernel parameter does that help with problem #2?
2) Does the instability persist if the vmware modules are not loaded?
3) To determine why the 1600x1200 mode is failing, I'll need you to start X with the following command:
startx -- -logverbose 6
and then generate a new bug report.
I should also note that the glx module failed to load, which suggests that the driver wasn't properly installed.
