Default Re: Bug Report: Hard crash (freeze) with nVidia GTX 460

To all the others: can you all try turning off Composite or similar in Gnome (or Compiz) ? For me indeed I can confirm that turning off composite makes the system completely stable. About 12 days running 24/7 and no problems since I turned that off.

This seems to confirm what I've thought all the way, eg a driver problem. The next step would probably be to activate partially the Composite effects and find the one that triggers the problem (maybe transparency ?), but I am quite happy with my stable system so dont know if I would be willing to do this...
I never had compositing enabled and yet it still crashes.

I'm not surprised. Confirming this nasty driver issue would probably hurt their sales/image.
