flickering with freebsd and 1.0-6113
i have an Acer Aspire 1703SM running freebsd 5.3RELEASE with an nvidia GeForceFX 5600 Go.
This is what i get from a sysctl -a command:
hw.nvidia.version: NVIDIA FreeBSD x86 NVIDIA Kernel Module 1.0-6113 Mon Aug 2 16:08:32 PDT 2004
hw.nvidia.cards.0.model: GeForce FX Go5600
dev.nvidia.0.%desc: GeForce FX Go5600
dev.nvidia.0.%location: slot=0 function=0
dev.nvidia.0.%pnpinfo: vendor=0x10de device=0x031a subvendor=0x1025 subdevice=0x0028 class=0x030000
The problem is that sometimes images on lcd flick randomly.
Frequency is very low but it's annoying anyway.
I don't experience this behaviour with winxp.
My question is: may this 'bug' lead to some sort of hardware problems?
I mean.. some days ago i had a serius problem with my lcd and i have to change the lcd inverter.
At the time i was using the previous release of freebsd driver, 1.0-6111 and the flickering was more frequent.
Thanks in advance
