Thumbs down Dual core AMD 3800+, SLI ASUS 7600 GT x2, X Windows lockup with smp kernel

Hi guys,

I just installed new AMDx2 3800+ CPU and I'm expiriencing problems with my configuration. The system spec is :

MB: ASUS A8N-SLI Premium
CPU: AMDx2 3800
VGA: 2x ASUS 7600GT
System: Fedora Core 5 with 2.6.17_1.2174_FC5smp kernel and
kmod-nvidia-smp-1.0.8762-5.2.6.17_1.2174_FC5 from livna.org

Three monitors are connected to the system, two on the first card and two on the second card. The screens are connected through Xinerama.

When I boot the system with smp kernel, after a while the whole X windows freezes. I can move the mouse sporadicaly but the keyboard is not responding as well as any other application. I tried moving the mouse pointer from one to another screen but that failed too. The pointer comes to the edge of the screen and stays there.

If I boot the system wit single cpu kernel everything works fine and there are no problems.

The last time the system crashed I was able to log through SSH from another machine. Everything was working fine so it looks like that only X had froze.

Anyhow I found and copied the following lines from the kernel logs:

I hope that someone can help me with this problem.
