Default Re: Nvidia 6200 and ATI RS480/482 chipset incompatibilities

My bad, it was the 9746, of which there seems to be no sign on the nVidia drivers page ??

1.0-9746 is in the archives on the driver page, however it is no longer supported. All drivers (1.0-9755, 100.14.11, etc) released since 1.0-9746 contain the same workaround as 1.0-9746 contained.

In other words, if the instability was eliminated for you in 1.0-9746 and has returned in 100.14.11, then you're very likely experiencing a completely unrelated bug.

Well, I don't know much about the technical aspects of it, but I can confirm that reinstalling 1.0.9746 fixed my problem. With versions older or newer I get regular freeze-ups and google-earth crashes within 5 seconds of opening, and with these drivers all is fine (so far!).

As you say, probably a different issue, but these seem to be the only drivers that work for me.

Actualy I test the 9746 with a nvs quadro 285 (nv44) on RHEL4 with success, the test works with 12 glxgears since yesterday :
Code:
for i in `ls /usr/bin`;
do
xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0 -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0 -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date;sleep 5' & xterm -display :0.0  -e 'date|less' &
killall -9 xterm;
sleep 1;
done
With the other drivers, few hours be enough.
