Default So, do we have a solution for PCI_BADNESS?

I've seen many posts complaining about sudden freezes in games (specially UT200X) and eventual lockups with a mixed variety of cards and drivers. In my case, this setup shows the PCI_BADNESS trouble (as reported by dmesg):

Drivers: 46.20 and up.
Card: Pixelview GF 5900 NU
IRQ: 11

Yeah, I have a LOT of traffic on IRQ 11 but I can't find a way to change it.

I'm using my old GF4 Ti 4600 (IRQ 10, 46.20) for the time being since UT2004 locks up after 2 minutes or so with the 5900. Needless to say that the 4600 has always been ROCK solid (and therefore I must declare the rest of my hardware not guilty).

Please post your troubled setups (or a solution if it has already been corrected).

In the past most drivers had a way to select a different IRQ, see if some of the drivers you need still have that option. Further some "Windowish" trick that works quite often is to move cards to different pci slots and things like that.

Aside from the modem, everything is on-board. I tried to block IRQs from BIOS, but the system reassigns them automatically. Another curious fact is that I get no reports for IRQs 12, 13, 14 and 15. At first I thought this was a problem with my mobo (ASUS A7N 8X) but as I said my GF4 works fine. I'm not completely sure the IRQ are the sole problem here, since the 44.96 drivers worked well until I tried UT2004 (suddenly the 5900 card shuts down and my monitor LED blinks).

Then I'd recommed you to send a bug to linux-bugs at nvidia dot com as it looks like a driver bug.

Just don't expect them to email you back for a long time, if ever.
