@complexicated: there's no indication in this call trace that the NVIDIA driver is involved; have you tried a stable kernel, e.g. Linux 2.6.11.12?

I am using the kernel from Fedora Core 4 .. Is there a known problem with the kernel that ships with fedora, that you know of or do you need me test with latest linus kernel?

Also, I can use the generic nv driver or the vesa driver without hardlocking my machine.. so the nvidia driver is causing the error or is the error.

Thanks for your help, I really appriciate it.

Like you mentioned earlier the fc3 kernel worked fine, so the difference is actually the fc4 kernel and not the nvidia driver. This could very well be a incompability with your system and the fc4 kernel. Nv and vesa doesn't use half the same hardware features than the nvidia driver and therefor does not stress your system nearly as much.

I'll give you an example. Some people can run with a faulty memory module for several months until they reach a particular game which stress the system and OS to it's limits and crashes/hangs will start to appear but only in this game. They change the faulty memory module and everything is fine again.

Edit:
Ok, I admit it's a bad example, but it does show that not everytime things are as straightforward as you may think, so every option should be explored.

You ppl using Fedora x86_64 -- I'm sorry, but I suffered with that distro and bailed as soon as Mandrake/Mandriva x86_64 came out. You really ought to try it, it just works.

I beg to differ.
But what does that have to do with the new driver release?

Default Re: 1.0-7667 for Linux x86-64 released

I have two workstations with dual opteron 250 with FX-3400 running SLES9
driving Apple 30" Cinerama flat panel at 1920x1200. excellent 3D rendering
excellent FSAA, getting about 207 Meg available for textures. My problem
is my dual opteron 252 with FX-4400 same display same settings, XFree86.0.log shows and chipset id of 0x00F8 which is the same for the FX-3400 and only shows 256Meg available instead of 512 Meg ?? I have this problem on the last three set of drivers that I have installed. Even though futher down in the Log it will call out the GPU as an FX-4400, speed and performance is excellent just looking for the rest of the memory. Any ideas ?

Default Re: 1.0-7667 for Linux x86-64 released

Has anybody had any luck having this drivers install on Mandriva AMD64 (10.2)?

I think I have tried all previous driver versions, allways ending up with make errors. Actually I had the same problems with Mandrake AMD64 10.1. On the other hand when I was running Mandrake 32bit (10.0) everything run smooth.

This is the only discernible error message I get on my Mandriva AMD64:

In file included from /root/tmp/selfgz6663/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-7667-pkg2
/usr/src/nv/nv.c:14:
/root/tmp/selfgz6663/NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-1.0-7667-pkg2/usr/src/nv/nv-linux.h
:507:2: #error "kernel function vmap(), which is necessary for x86_64 appear
s to be unavailable in this kernel!"

Any clues?

Thanks a lot!
