Well, he is saying the same thing in this forum: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=95003 (nvidia 7300 and ATI RS485/485C chipset incompatibilities (driver BUG)).

But I told him the same that you did and no reply have been posted.

I found that the workaround referred to earlier is incomplete in 100.14.xx, supporting reports of a regression since 1.0-96xx; could those of you seeing problems with 100.14.11 try the attached (experimental) patch? It should improve stability with NV44 and G72 based graphics cards on certain ATi chipsets.

To apply the patch, use:
# sh /path/to/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-100.14.11-pkg0.run --apply-patch /path/to/NVIDIA_kernel-100.14.11-336672.diff.txt
# sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86-100.14.11-pkg0-custom.run

Thumbs up Re: nvidia 7300 and ATI RS480/482 chipset incompatibilities (driver BUG)

Without the patch above, I experience hard lock-ups within minutes or seconds. I'm running Ubuntu Feisty with the 7300GS and, with the above patch, I have been running Compiz Fusion for several hours with no hard lock-ups so far. I will post again if I run into a problem, but so far so good. Good work nvidia! I can finally run eye-candy in Ubuntu.

Talking Re: nvidia 7300 and ATI RS480/482 chipset incompatibilities (driver BUG)

Hey !

Thanks for this patch it works well for now :

I launched 20 glxgears, and I still can write this answer !

PS : I didn't find NVIDIA-Linux-x86-100.14.11-pkg0.run
so I replaced it by NVIDIA-Linux-x86-100.14.11-pkg1.run

I think that it has all been fixed. I know that I said that before once but beryl and glxgears have all been rock solid for an hour or more so that is good enough for me. Thank you to Zander and anyone else who helped to fix this. I really appreciate it as i would not have been able to do it my self.

Just before I take this any further, my card's a GeForce 6200SE supplied OEM with an HP Pavilion XKWQ-93-sump'n-sump'n-sump'n.

I note the only series mentioned as wanting the patch are are the NV44 series and the G73 series. Does this mean I'm o.k.?

Starting glxgears now, just to see what happens ....

The changes above (and the workaround itself) won't affect systems with other GPUs (i.e. the patch should be safe to apply, if in doubt). To the best of my knowlege, the GeForce 6200GS is NV44 based, though.

so noted. and, indeed, glxgears crashed me.

looking at the patch instructions, note that I've installed my version of the driver from YAST (opensuse 10.2), and the package I downloaded for backup from Nvidia (in case something went horribly wrong) ends in pkg2, not pkg0 (as in your instructions).

errrm ... does this matter? if so, what should I do?

ahh.. figured it out myself in the end. the patch is for the x86 and not the x86_64 version. Guess it's back to the ol' tenterhooks (as in 'walking on ... ').
