Not stable for me.

* CPU: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4400+
* RAM: 2 Gb
* Kernel: 32bit, or 64 bit is the same
* GeForce 7300SE
* xorg-server-1.5.3 (ArchLinux)

Crashes (freeze) after 10minutes +/-

The same setup was rock solid with maxcpus=1 at boot
The same setup was rock solid with every 180.xx release with onboard 6150SE card.

Fot those who say they're stable save all you need close other apps and take a look on www.tim.it and see how you crash! http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=129777

NON-Antialiased fonts bug could be considered a stable driver? I don't think. http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=125111

I have no problem viewing that site with FF 3.5b4, nV 185.13, and a GF8600m GT. What's your configuration?

I have no problem viewing that site. I am currently using nvidia driver version 180.41 with my laptop 8600M GT card. Completely stable, the only bug I had was unable to wake up from suspend/hibernate but it was fixed since 180.35.

CPU: Intel T7100 1.8GHz
Chipset: 945M or whatever it is.
Gf-Card: 8600M GT
Xorg 1.6.0 + Kernel 2.6.28 (and 2.6.29 too) + nvidia driver version 180.41

NO MORE REPLIES TO marchetto's POST PLEASE!


Try to keep the thread on-topic with reports of stable and unstable setups.

Thank you!

NOT stable with:

* CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
* Chipset: whatever is in a HP xw4600
* Gfx-Card: nVidia Quadro FX 1700FX
* X.Org version: 7.2
* X.Org x-server version: 1.2.0
* Kernel version: 2.6.25

Have also experienced xorg crashes and video corruption with other machines running the same linux image but with Quadro FX4600 and FX4800 cards, as well as a range of of intel motherboard chipsets and various speed Intel Core 2 dual core and quad core cpus (hp xw8600, xw8400 workstations)

NOT STABLE

CPU: Intel Core2Duo E8400
M/B: Gigabyte GA-EX38-DS4
Chipset: Intel EX38

GFX: Gainward BP9600GT 1024 MB
Kernel: 64-bit SMP, 2.6.27.xx, 2.6.28.x, 2.6.29

OMG, you want to be serious... ok....

So, in this quite useless poll DE is missing... you're not even saying which is the DE that you're using... Gnome, Kde, Xcfe etc ?
