ee!

I just tried 256.29. Did not work for me.

Installed it and started as usual, just to make a test I run glxgears, pressed the stealth button till I got the lowest fps. Waited a few minutes and xserver crashed as with previous versions.

Just a context note:
With previous driver (195.36.31) I stopped the crashing using glxgears to measure the amount of fps while using the stealth button. When I get the most fps (>3000) the system go stable. I can do this with the beta (256.29) and have a stable system.

I still have the problem in stealth mode/on battery. With the cable in things seem stable now though, which is a lot better than it was before.

ee!!

Just wanting to update that I'm now using 256.35 and the problem is still here. Once again, I'm able to have a stable system pressing the stealth button to get max frame rate at glxgears. But when the system is not in such a state, crashing of the X server continues.

I'll check in the next days if the crashing is still in the same function I posted some time a go.

Take care.

P.S.: Is my English getting better?

It was ok for me with 256.35 (on AC, never worked properly on battery), but empty backtraces are back with 256.44...

of course since they are always empty there's no way of knowing if this is related to general instability or this issue.
