Re: Crashing when SMP enabled
As I write this I am finally using an SMP kernel and the 'nvidia' driver, TwinView enabled.
I'm currently in the process of figuring out which of the many things I changed, has stopped X from crashing the whole system on startup. I recompiled xorg without 'composite', enabled SMP in the kernel, recompiled the nvidia drivers and booted the kernel with 'noirqbalancer' and probably changed other things.
I'm not yet totally convinced that everything is 100% stable -- can anyone recommend any benchmarks or similar software to ensure everything is working properly?
Thanks very much to the two people who replied with helpful advice.
I will be in touch once I figure out exactly what happened to get X to not crash.
