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.

hw.nvidia.cards.0.model: GeForce2 MX/MX 400
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!
