Default Re: Fedora13, Xorg 1.8.2-4 with 8800GTS hangs with (EE) NVIDIA(0): WAIT: (E,0,0x507d,

We have the same problem here with our new HP/Compaq Elite 8100 mini towers : no graphics using the Nvidia driver, no matter what Nvidia card we use. The only drivers that seem to work are the nv driver and the vesa framebuffer driver. A pity as we have bought them also to play with Cuda , sigh ....

HP even states in the manual that they do NOT support the Nvidia driver under Linux , so I think it is some design error on the motherboard or something else that causes a conflict with the Nvidia driver.

From the manual :

4 The following features are not supported on Linux certified systems:
HP 22-in-1 media card reader
Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 Security Chip
Intel Gigabit CT Desktop NIC Card
Broadcom NetXtreme GbE Ethernet Plus NIC
HP 802.11b/g/n wireless NIC
LSI 56K Int'l SoftModem
HP USB Smartcard keyboard
HP Serial port adapter
HP Parallel port adapter
HP eSATA port adapter
HP FireWire/IEEE 1394 I/O card
Media Card Reader (22-in-1) with 1394 port
NVIDIA NVS G310 SH Graphics Card
NVIDIA Quadro NVS 290 Graphics Card

It is the first time in 3 years that we have bought HP/Compaq systems because of many problems with the old ones and now again we do have all sorts of problems with them :-((

Remarkably enough the "real" HP workstations from the XW series are always rocksolid and seem not to cause any trouble at all ....
