Re: 9650M GT / FreeBSD 8.0 / 195.22beta / amd64
I have found a workaround under FreeBSD using xorg.conf :
Option ""RegistryDwords" "PowerMizerEnable=0x1; PerfLevelSrc=0x2222; PowerMizerDefault=0x2 PowerMizerDefaultAC=0x2"
The driver stays in max performance mode (0x3) although I did set it to medium (PowerMizerDefaultAC=0x2), but X/system doesn't crash anymore.
Setting these options trough sysctl hw.nvidia.registry.dwords doesn't word.
