Same here.. with Nvidia 8800GT

I tried pretty much everything I could, but still getting xorg freezes and errors in the logs.

It is so annoying that no one was able to fix very well known issue since probably 2008.

If NVIDIA keeps its specs closed - fair enough, but please do fix the bloody bugs.

Things I tried:

* Different kernel versions - starting from 2.6.30 to 2.6.37
* Different Xorg server versions - starting from 1.8.0 to 1.9.3 (freezes are less frequent with 1.8.x)
* Various NVIDIA driver versions
* Flashed my mainboard's bios to the newest one
* Tried various options in BIOS which might be related to video card / memory management
* Tried various different options in xorg.conf (suggestions from million other forums)
* Tried various different kernel options (same - as suggested by other people to address this issue)
* Prayed
* Broke a couple of keyboards
* etc

And guess what? - NOTHING HELPED!!!

I am still experiencing xorg freezes and errors.

I have always been a big fan of NVIDIA, but unfortunately I can only see one solution - spend some money on AMD video card or similar.

/me sighs..

@zooz: Any reason you want Xorg 1.8.0 or newer?

Any other distro tested ?

Same here using 270.18. I have a Mythbuntu 10.10 distribution + xorg 1.9.3 RC 1 + kernel 2.6.35-25-generic with a GT220 card.

I've been battling driver issues with this card since Sept. In the ~15 yrs I've been using Linux, this has been the worst experience I've ever had getting something to work. I bought an Nvidia card based on its history of quality Linux drivers. I guess past performance is no guarantee of future success. I even filed a bug report about 1.5 month ago. Nvida - please help us help you!

The os_raise_smp_barrier error messages seem to be gone in latest 270.26 driver [Ubuntu Lucid x86-64, NVS 3100M].
