Just as an update: Since I applied above patch (and started using acpi pmtmr as timesource) I had no lock-up ever since. Still have to try it with nvAGP though.

Nope, turning that on made no difference.

Works with the 2.6.9-rc1-bk9 with no problem. The latest is 2.6.9-rc1-bk10. For those having problems may want to try these with that above patch.

To apply 2.6.9-rc1-bk* patches:
cd /usr/src/linux
bzip2 -dc /pathtopatch/patch-2.6.9-rc1-bk*.tar.bz2 | patch -p1


To apply the above patch: NVIDIA--... --extract-only
cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6111-pkg1/usr/src/nv
patch -p1 < /pathtopatch/nvidia-pci-enable.patch
cd NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6111-pkg1
make install

mm? kernels are for really bleeding edge stuff. rc? and bk? are for fixes leading to next version.

OK. I'm testing this patch now. I'll report back in the next couple of days yea or nay if it fixes my lockups. My system is 2.6.8.1, 5700XT, dual opteron 244, K8W. Running FC2 in 32-bit, acpi=off pci=noacpi

I test by running glxgears as a first cut. Then running ut2004 as the more rigorous test. In the past it has been hit or miss.

So, I did an experminet yesterday. I switched back to tsc as timesource and guess what it locked up within a few hours of compiling. So for me the use of acpi pm timer is mandantory. I haven't tried acpi pm timer without this patch, but I have no interest to. Right now I am testing nvagp with acpi pm timer.

BTW, my system even works stable withthe new nforce2 cpufreq module...

Yeah, I'm gonna look at the config.txt too. This didn't solve my hard reboot issue. I'm wondering if ACPI is really preferred now. So I'll try with my MOBO set to ACPI and add ACPI options to the kernel, and try this all with ACPI enabled. Worth a shot. Otherwise it's on to hardware replacements, possibly other brands.

That is to say, the pci patch didn't fix it. Since I was running NO ACPI at all anywhere, I'm going to switch, and see if actually running with all the ACPI stuff going will help.

The grub.conf "acpi_skip_timer_override" looks interesting.
I'll add that after I see what happens with all the ACPI stuff up and running.
Thanks for posting your configs.

I had a problem with the -ck version of con's kernel patches. We narrowed it down to it possibly being 61.11 version of driver. I tried the previous version 60.16 and no hard freeze. You may want to try the previous version. Also if you are worried about 4k stacks, con told me you would benefit if you had greater than 4GB ram. I am using the kernel w/o 4k stacks and no issues......
