Default Re: 1.0-7667 for Linux x86 released

The OpenGL code is shared between the Windows and Linux driver. Seems the latest (major) titles use DirectX except for Doom3, but OpenGL isn't going anywhere. It's the defacto standard for everything else than games.

Give us more TMU's, ATI provides 6 in their driver. Get it right.

The machines in question are Dell Precision 670's with dual Xeon 3.2GHz processors and 1GB Ram. The cards we bought for them are PNY 6600GT PCI-e cards. We've had a problem with every single workstation we put the card in. Going from 6629 to 7174 to 7664 to 7667 has not helped at all. Whenever the machine is doing something OpenGL-intensive (even as simple as glxgears), it tends to lock up in under 5 minutes, nearly 100% reproducible.

Unlike a lot of people, we don't typically get any Xid errors or any pertinent log messages at all. It just hangs, black screen, no keyboard LED's, nothing. Only a cold start will bring it back. I've attached a bug report (from a reboot after a crash) in hopes that it will be useful to someone.
I haven't experienced the issue you're team is experiencing. Even though my specs may be a little differant from Dell's offerings I believe it may be another issue. Such as faulty graphics GPU, improperly configured driver, voltage, etc. I'll post one of my workstation specs below so you can have a frame of reference in helping to narrow down the specific cause. Also it would help to know the name of the "OpenGL intensive" application you're running that is crashing. Most applications offer some form of crash log or at least a general crash log over view can be found in the system logs.

Yes but eventually they will get it right and they will still have 6 TMU's.

You know what, that's what they said two years ago. Nvidia is seriously years ahead.

I'm writing this from work with accelerated RENDER and 7664. The graphics card is a 6600GT PCIe (pci-x is not pci express).

Just for the record, no problems with RENDER at home either, specs in signature. Both systems running Fedora Core 4.

Wow .... It's amazin of how unobjective fanboys are. I like nVidia as much as the next person but they are very far from perfect.

Have another sip of kool-aid.

Hmm, RENDER is no problem here too, but this app

Cone( About 13 mb )
.
(Download it, unpack it, read the README, make sure that you've a backup, start it, press "NvCrash", ...)

and does it crash, do you get any XiDs, display corruptions...?
