Default Re: The strangest problem in the world.

Well, I have continued my research and found some interesting things.

By now, I can fix the problem if I can make a nvidia-driver-intercepted irq fire. That is, if I fire the interrupt where one of my nvidia card listens (IRQ11) but my ethernet adapter also uses (IRQ11) the nvidia driver will work.

So one solution would be to modify my NVIDIA-6111 driver to constantly run it's ISR (interrupt service routine) via a timer, setting the params to something inofensive that would result in ignoring the signal.

Could anyone know exactly how this could be done and if it could be done with the source portion of the nvidia driver??

Thanks to all and I hope this solves the problems of other humans =o)
