Thumbs down Re: 6.1-Stable Freeze with 6600GT

Hate to resurrect an old thread, but I'm seeing essentially the same thing, but on somewhat newer hardware.
Seems fair enough since nothing ever seemed to get resolved

I got minor relief by using 8178 drivers but it's not as good as I initially thought. I still get lock ups under *heavy, sustained* ethernet usage. AFAIK there are no shared interrupts in play. Luckily, I only seem to trigger the fault when backing up to another machine, so I just exit X before doing that.

I had no trouble with a single core processor and non-SMP kernel on otherwise identical hardware. If you are willing to sacrifice a core, you might try taking out SMP to see if it helps.

Haven't had a chance to try the nv driver since Xorg 7.1 came out to see if it works better than it did in the past.
