Default 5336 driver causes panic under load

I'm running stock Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.0 + all updates on a Dell 650:


I start a few clients to create some X and OpenGL noise (ico, glxgears, chromium) and then proceed to do a kernel build (using the "rpm" target in the kernel Makefile) and the system only survives a few minutes after that. I see similar problems running 2.6.3 too. This is very reproducible.

Attached is my XF86Config file. Note that I'm running a TwinView dual monitor setup. Following is an example panic message. Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated.

It appears that I can reproduce the same problem with the 5328 driver version, so it's not just 5336.

At this point I think it's time to test my machine's memory...

Looks like memtest-86 v3.0 passes with flying colors (though I'll let it run overnight just for good measure).

So, I don't think it is bad memory. That narrows it down to one of the following:

- A bug that has been in the nvidia driver for multiple releases
- A bug in the Red Hat kernel
- Some intermittent hardware failure other than memory

After the memory tests complete tomorrow I'll go back some further revs of the nvidia driver and see if I can make those fail under load too.
