Default Re: 7600 GT is NOT identified correctly, possible cause of MASSIVE crashes


In response to your suggestion of hardware issues I installed another identical card.

The same MASSIVE crashes & hardlocks continue. Therefore, I do not believe that the hardware is at fault. In addition to this I built a new kernel using gentoo sources for 2.6.22, which resulted in the same issue. This is unacceptable behavior. As a side note, using this same card/drivers, it is running stable on an x86 workstation. Perhaps there is a driver issue with x86_64.

I will attach the most recent bug report as well as an excerpt from /var/log/messages and Xorg.0.log when this occurs. There are interesting error fragments that may lead to a solution.



EDIT: One more thing to note, the correct chipset label is G70 as reported by pciutils on many different machines, why then is the nvidia driver identifying it as G73?
