no. the current released doesn't have the fixed yet.
it says the fixed is on testing
"* Possible system slowdown during periods of extreme network
load, fix is currently being tested."

Question

The way the ChangeLog is worded makes me think that the fix is included in this release and that they want people to test it to see if the fix works.

The change log is a bit ambiguous...

NVidia seems to be suffering the sort of Lawyers who don't quite 'get' the GPL and are afraid it will some how infect all of their IP, and it will all get stolen.

I've had a friend who worked for a company that would not let them use the GNU toolchain on a project but insisted that they buy a commercial C compiler for their 'target' (that didn't work properly) 'cause the lawyers belived that using a GNU tool would infect their entire product line.....

The tech people may very well understand the difference between a programming interface and the full design specs, but the company's legal obviously don't yet.

Hopefully as Linux continues to gain legitimacy, such backward thinking will begin to subside, especially as more and more companies open-source their products.

But don't be too quick to think that it's just backwards I'm-afraid-of-OSS-and-losing-my-IP. For all we know, NVIDIA may have entered into contracts or NDAs to get the drivers for this stuff written. So the lack of source does not mean "I hate OSS."

Either way, does the driver work?

I'm typing this via 2.6.0-test9-xfs with the GPL forcedeth driver.

The nvidia 'wedge' is generating non fatal kernel opps as it starts up....

Then report it to the driver authors and linux-kernel. Perhaps a fix can be created by the driver authors.

It's the Nvidia video driver that is causing the oops. The kernel is tainted by the Nvidia video driver. The kernel developers are not interested in opps caused by tainted kernels.

I also can't burn CDs with out the machine freezing. I can replicate this on two different systems, one Intel based core, the other NForce/AMD core. What is common is geForce video cards.
The machines will burn CDs if X is not started.

You're right -- you'll be ignored on linux-kernel. All you can do is either use the slow OSS NVIDIA driver or else try older versions of the NVIDIA drivers and/or complain to NVIDIA.

I used the first driver .14 from http://www.hailfinger.org/carldani/l...hes/forcedeth/ worked good. I'm using .18 on 2.6test9 and its a lot faster. the best is it doesnt taint the kernel. for the nforce2 locking up append acpi=off to your lilo config it fixed my lock ups.

PS for feedback on the driver if you read the web page above it lists an email to give feedback to netdev@oss.sgi.com

Thumbs up

Then be sure to report it to the driver authors.
