Default FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE-p4, GT240, 256.44 x64 Hangs

The system is FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE-p4 with GT240

I am trying to run the latest drivers 256.44 x64 version.

When installed, resolution displays fine but the computer freezes at a random point in time,
almost invariably within the first few minutes, sometimes within a few seconds. The freeze is
fatal, and the computer needs to be reset.

Reverting back to 256.25 eliminates the problem.

I haven't tried 256.35, I'll give that a go and get back to you. Meanwhile, are there any known
problems with 256.44 that would cause such a freeze with my setup?

Yes. Unfortunately, there's a known regression between 256.35 and 256.44 that affects your GPU and is not yet understood.

Oh, well never mind, I'm sure you'll find the bug eventually. I really respect NVIDIA for releasing drivers for FreeBSD. Keep up the good work.

Meanwhile I'll keep using 256.35, which I've found works fine.

Thanks

This should now be resolved with the 256.52 graphics driver release (see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=154569).
