A company the size of nvidia should have a test lab that is capable of registering key indicators of problems such as a fan running too fast.

Hi.
May be trouble with SMP/multicore systems with NVIDIA drivers for 6200/7200/7300 in kernel or kernel config, any kernel modules, or Xorg etc.? On my Athlon 64 x2 4200 with GeForce 7300 after update to 169.04 and 169.07 drivers version hard lock continued.

When this bug will be correctly fixed?

On 169.07, even with 'maxcpus=1' in kernel command line, I have random lockups in shortly time after boot.
I downgrade to 100.14.09.... Why NVIDIA in release notes write: "Fixed stability problems with some GeForce 6200/7200/7300 GPUs multi-core/SMP systems." ???

@scotsmist: I don't know when an updated driver will become available, but due to christmas, etc., it won't be until sometime early next year.

@SilentLexx,Arsenal: the SMP/multi-core stability problem referred to in the changelog was specific to SMP/multi-core systems; if you experience problems with UP configurations, they are unrelated and need to be investigated independently. Please provide the necessary information (especially detailed reproduction steps) separately (please see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=46678).

That is a shame but I understand. I was hoping to see an interim driver version to tide us over, since the bug was I believe indentified and fixed.

come on now the fan noise is not such a show stopper. compile nvclock as already suggested or just blare some loud music like I have been. It's only a real issue if you make it one and don't follow the obvious workarounds.

That said, please be careful until a real fix comes from nvidia.

Nvidia how about implementing some proper fan control in the driver

As for nvclock, a good idea but unlikely to work for the brand new 512 8800GT/GTS
And i agree, this lack of any useful settings in nvidia drivers is becoming a disturbing trend.. in windows you basically have to use rivatuner because nTune is just not acceptable, and in linux we have coolbits that can't even save its clock settings or control the fan at all..

As for compiz, I don't know the specifics of your PC devrandom, but for me it ran MUCH smoother than .04.. though maybe not exactly as smooth as 100.14. I didn't benchmark the performance but there was no serious hiccups when maximizing windows, tabbing or anything else. I was also able to play a long game of TF2 (running in wine) with no serious performance issue, only a minor annoyance of the taskbar showing overtop of the game.

Perhaps this comes down to specific software that differs on our machines, because I'm also using the 8800 GT 512mb.

hardware: Core Duo @ 2.65ghz, 3gigs of ram, gigabyte 650i
software: kernel 2.6.22, Gentoo 64bit, Xorg-server 1.3.0.0, xorg 7.1 (i think?), compiz 0.6.2, compiz-fusion 0.6.0, gnome 2.18
Ran compiz from console with "compiz-start"
What does compile nvclock as already suggested mean ?

ok unfortunately I got nvclock off the sourceforge CVS (is this the latest?)
and compiled it and it didn't work for my 8800 GT

~/nvclock/src $ nvclock -f -F 50
Error: Your card doesn't support fanspeed adjustments!

If someone who has this working can show the exact steps they used to build and the exact CVS they used to get it working i'd appreciate it..

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@nvclock.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/nvclock login (there is no password, just hit enter)
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@nvclock.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/nvclock co -P nvclock

After that extract the source and run autogen.sh, configure and so on.

This worked for me
