Default Re: Kernel crash with nvidia-driver-173.14.12 7-STABLE/i386

It's posted in this forum but I didn't find it until after I ran into this. So, from personal experience, unfortunately. Nvidia does not play nice with PAE mapped memory. It sounds like a bit of progress has been made on this and some of the kernel features nvidia is requesting are coming down the pipe into 8.x and even the 7.x series but I don't know if that will be enough.

On another note, Nvidia has some work to do before then anyways as myself and others are unable to get any sort of compositing working and then open any sort of opengl app. Instant x-server crash. Many have noted that the 169 series drivers don't experience this but with a 9x board, that isn't an option for me.
