Post RH 7.3 (2.4.18-17.7smp) 3123 kernel oops

Ran into a problem that seems to point to the NVIDIA driver (drv 3123 from --recompile)

Upgraded RH 7.3 (2.4.18-5smp to 2.4.18-17.7.xsmp) on a Dell Precision 530. After 15 minutes of working around with the system, the following kernel oops was emited:

Does this happen if you don't load your NVdriver kernel module? i.e. reboot, don't load it at all (this means you'll want to remove the alias from /etc/modules.conf, and that means you'll have to move back to the opensource "nv" or the "vesa" X driver), and run for a while.

If it happens again, then the problem isn't with the NVdriver kernel module. This seems to be the case anyway, as I can't think of any way the stack trace would have functions like "sys_select", "sock_recvmsg", and "sock_read" in it if the problem was with the nVidia drivers -- they shouldn't be touching the socket system. Although X does use sockets, so the driver might ... no, never mind. The nvidia_drv.o file runs in userspace, as does X itself.

When you upgraded your kernel, did you also upgrade kernel-source, and recompile the NVdriver kernel module? You have to do that, you can't just copy the built version.

Yes, we recompiled with the NVidia driver after rebooting with the kernel upgrade.

Also FYI--This box is running stock KDE from 7.3.

------

I tried for an hour to get Xinerama mode on the "nvidia" driver that comes with XFree86, we need both monitors active for our in house application(s).

Twinview I can setup fine with the NVidia rpm driver, but it crashes for us.

Will run with the "nvidia" or "vesa" driver if I can get Xinerama working for this...
