Default Re: Configure 3 displays on SLES 9 using nvidia Quadro NVS 440

Thank you for your reply. These are the answer to your questions:

0. Yes
1. We updated to the one before the latest i.e. 2.10 and still the same
2. tried all different combinations (noapic, acpi=off, noapic & acpi=off), but still the same
3. A more recent kernel is at this point not an option as, our environment, being a mission critical, is very static and such changes can not be implemented.
However, we might try just to see if a kernel update would solve the problem, but again this would not be a solution for us.

Novell support says that the problem is using a proprietary nVidia kernel module, thus this cannot be covered by SUSE/Novell support, however they will look if they can find anything else.
