Default crashes and freezes


I'm curious if i'm the only one having all those problems, or if the drivers of nvidia are the guilty ones:

I'm using a redhat beta null (i've just upgraded to rh8.0, but the first symtoms i have are still the same), p3 1000, via appolo pro on a tyan
1542 mobo; 512MBram, kernel 2.4.19; gcc 3.2; gef4ti4200 128MB (sparkle);
here are the symtomps:

q3 sometimes freezes
return to castle wolf often freezes (like once per half hour)

unreal tourn2003demo often freezes (if you click in many menus and at the launch of a game)

when i run mplayer, this happens when the pc is up for a week or so, the mouse cursor becomes a gray-box; and if i then put licq back into
foreground, the whole pc freezes

and now xawtv (when using with rivatv, i know it isn't supported by you), freezes also (other programs like ffmpeg or mplayer can capture
without problems)

I think i'm having this problems since i've upgraded to gcc 3.2, but
can't swear this is the cause... I'm already digging for a month with
this :/ Almost everything was working fine a big month ago, untill ...
Untill when, can't find out

Checked mobo cpu and main memory, that hardware part seems to be fine.

agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory: 440M
agpgart: Detected Via Apollo Pro chipset
agpgart: AGP aperture is 32M @ 0xe2000000
NVRM: AGPGART: VIA Apollo Pro chipset
NVRM: AGPGART: aperture: 32M @ 0xe2000000
NVRM: AGPGART: aperture mapped from 0xe2000000 to 0xe1b7c000
NVRM: AGPGART: mode 2x
NVRM: AGPGART: allocated 16 pages

Yes shared irq, but xawtv crashes also without the sblive, so i don't
think it's irq related.

This began to happen when i was using drivers 2960, and still occurs
with 3123.

So, am i the only one crashing 3times a day? If i wanted a system like that, i would have installed windows!
