Unhappy nvs285 pci-e + ATI rs480 = freeze !

I tested nvs 285 pci-express on a chipset ATI rs480, with kernel 2.4.30 and 2.6.14 with XFree86 4.5.0 and Xorg 6.8.2 and 6.9 : X was unstable.

I need to use the nvidia driver to work on a dual screens.

I tried a lot of configuration of X, dual or not, renderaccel or not, glx (glcore and dri=off)... My X configuration works but freeze with a large activity, 2D or 3D...

But on a chipset intel 915 no problem with this X configuration (xorg.conf/XF86Config-4).

I tried to recompile kernel-module with
"static int NVreg_ReqAGPRate = 1" and "{ NULL, "ReqAGPRate", &NVreg_ReqAGPRate, 1 }," in os-registry.c to decrease the AGP rate, like explain in appendixF of doc drivers, but without succes.

Someone knows this problem ?

Thanks, Luc

ps: excuse my for my English...

correction : any nvidia pci-e + ATI rs480 = freeze (test on geforce 6200 and nvs285)
