Default Re: System Lockups - 8800 + Xeon System

0) Does this problem persist with the latest RHEL-4.5 kernel?
1) Can you setup a serial console to capture any kernel messages at the time of the crash?

I'm still waiting for a response from you on this!
  • I have disabled Twinview and am running multiple screens with Xinerama
  • The problem does indeed persist with the latest CentOS-4.5 kernel - and it still occurs now that I've replaced the 8800 card with a Quadro 5600.
  • I set up a serial console but it only gave me the same information that was available in the system logs and was unable to communicate with the system once X had locked up.
Please let me know what else I can do to help diagnose this problem.
