Default Re: Instability of NVIDIA drivers on Linux 64 bit - thoughts?

When I installed 185.18.36 just after it was released, it actually fixed lockup problems I was having with the 180.drivers. Beastie was even hanging on shutdown !!

On an Intel Core2 CPU 6600 @ 2.40Ghz with 8Gb ram, GeForce 9600 GT, 64 bit Debian Lenny, all updates applied. Purpose-built to do graphics work on it.

Was that happy, installed 185.18.36 on one of my other babies, an AMD 64 with 2Gb ram, can't remember which nVidia card but the machine is only about a year old. Pre-built - bought it because it was a good price. Running Debian Squeeze 64 bit.

Both machines running dreamlike.

Wondering if yours may be a hardware thing?
