Default Random crashes/hangs (533 Celery / GeForce2 MX)


I sent this to be bugs address. I'm adding a few more details I think I forgot.

533MHz Celeron Mendocino and I'm using the nVidia AGP support (not native FreeBSD). I thinks that's all I can provide without further prompting.

I'm running FreeBSD 4.7-STABLE (built from CVS 8 Nov 02). I
downloaded the nVidia FreeBSD driver (1.0-3203) and compiled/installed
as explained. After modifying my XFree86 setup file (as explained) and
restarting I have a machine that hangs or resets itself.

Here is the information I can think you might need:

% dmesg | grep nvidia ; dmesg | grep agp
Preloaded elf module "nvidia.ko" at 0xc053609c.
nvidia0: <GeForce2 MX/MX 400> mem 0xd8000000-0xdfffffff,0xd2000000-0xd2ffff=

agp0: <VIA 82C691 (Apollo Pro) host to PCI bridge> mem 0xe0000000-0xe7fffff=

hw.nvidia.registry.SoftEDIDs: 1
hw.nvidia.registry.Mobile: 4294967295 GeForce2 MX/MX 400 11 ??.??.??.??.?? AGP

I have physically (in the BIOS) set AGP to 2x so 4x should not be
allowed (although I don't know why hw.nvidia.agp.card.rates includes
4x). I managed to run twm as root and play about a bit but upon closing
the machine locked up. Also, if I run as a regular used as xmms loads
the machine locks up as the playlist is about to display. Further
testing as root caused the machine to spontaneously reboot another time.
I can provide any details you require concerning this but a quick
explanation (or details of where to look) for an idea of how to do it
would be helpful.

Thanks very much and congrats. for getting so far!
