Default Re: nvidia driver very unstable on gtx260m

Oh, cool! So that makes it OK!!! Awesomeness!

I bought this (very) expensive piece of hardware, tested it. Found that one problem with it and "knew" based on my experience that nvidia would fix it in a reasonable timeframe. I did tons of work for testing, sent it to linux-bugs@nvidia at least 4 times including details + a link to this thread with updated details. I haven't even gotten a "we're looking into it" in over 7 months

I currently have a choice between:

* The 180.x driver, which is slow
* Any newer driver on 64bit which does not work for SLI.
* The nouveau driver, which doesn't have power management. What I use currently, but I have a quite serious headache and I've had it for some time.

Any nvidia driver at this point is limiting my ability to do my work. So I'm stuck during long hours with smashing headaches. I've considered trying to return it or sell it a 100 times by now, but fact is I can't afford not using it at this point.


PS: Thanks for teaching me how to get some attention! Hope you don't mind plagiarism!!
