nforce4 + 7800gtx sli + smp = lockups
I have the following:
Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe
AMD Athlon X2 4800+ (s939)
Evga 7800GTX (256MB) x 2
This same hardware works fine under XP, Vista and Ubuntu Edgy.
I've installed the following:
Ubuntu Feisty Beta 1 (fresh install, then dist-upgraded today)
Nvidia restricted driver using the new Restricted Driver Manager
It seems to works fine, I can enable desktop effects, run Beryl perfectly or even run WoW through wine - until I enable SLI support in xorg.conf. If I turn off desktop effects it comes up long enough for me to run things like glxgears.
When I run glxgears, four different things can happen:
1) It runs fine.
2) It seems to be running fine, but I get a black square.
3) It hangs, and I get a black square.
4) It hangs, and I get a grey square.
Luckily, I can still ssh in and run the bug report tool.
