nVidia driver in freebsd + AC97 crashes
I use an Epox 8K5A3+ board and a Ti4400. When I start X-windows with the AC97 turned on in the bios X will crash and lock up the system after a short period of time, but when onboard AC97 is disabled it does not crash at all, OR when I use the Xfree86 nv driver the system does not crash. I have had this experience with both FreeBSD 4.8 and FreeBSD 5.1.
At first I though it may be an IRQ conflict or something, but this does not appear to be the case. Has anyone else had similar problems ?
