Cool SUN Ultra 40 XFX GeForce 8800GTX Suse 10.0 reboots

Hi All,

I have a SUN Ultra 40 running Suse 10.0 with a XFX GeForce 8800GTX (768MB using the latest 9742 beta driver) that reboots when it is trying to start X. I've tried rebooting the system with noapic and with noacpi and a combination of them both but it has not helped. In some cases when I reboot with noapic the X server segfaults.

I have attached logs for the various boot configurations to see if any of them might help. I would rather not have this become a very expensive door stop.

Access to the system remotely by nVidia engineers is available if need be. I am willing to test other unreleased drivers as well.

I take it no one has had time to look at this issue?

I really want to get this card up and running soon!

This is a known BIOS bug which impacts motherboards with the CK804 chipset. We hope to workaround it in a future driver release.

Thanks,
Lonni

any ideas when this new driver will be released. Like I said before I'm willing to test any alpha or beta drivers if needed to get this going. I work at a university and we are eager to get code running on this beast.
