The board could be the culprit, or the video card too.

hogwash. i just built a state of the art system using an antec p150 quiet case to house my atx m.b.

couldn't have made a better choice.

give us a link to the anandtech site. it's possible there's a design flaw with a particular unit, but don't generalize. my antec rules. it's the best.

yes and nvidia hasn't resolved the problem with 7800gtx either.

so this is a known issue - confirmed independently. i asked msi and they point blank denied this.

specifically, my brand new out of the box 7800gtx would not horrizontal sync.

tried several different tvs, but same problem, and no sync adjustment on tv.

sent video card back (rma) and replacement didn't have this problem. but since it happened to someone else i am betting a dollar there's a design flaw despite this:

There is no such recall for the issue since it might just due to cable or video card itself with problem with the component/part.

hey, do you think these guys need to go to english class, or should they concentrate on quality control ?

your directory structure is sloppy. doesn't anyone there have the slightest basic computing skills?

what's the problem over there? a vegetable could manage files and folders better than this. some classes might help. are you misusing your training program, or is this a result of poor management?

at this point in the game i'm thinking of two options: 1. yesterdays technology 2. another chipset, one that's not nvidia

What is Nvidia doing if anything to rectify the problem?
i second this. read mine.

pm..

yes, i second this. same exact problem.

no precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel... unable to connect ... the installer will need to compile a kernel interface for your kernel. performing cc test with cc=cc. gcc-version-check failed: ./usr/src/nv/conftest.sh: line 19: cc: command not found
could not compile gcc-version-check.c please be sure you have your distributions libc development package installed and that cc is a valid c compile name.
if you know what you are doing and you want to ignore the gcc version check...
either way yes/no installation fails.

c'mon nvidia. we're all waiting on you. it doesn't have to be this difficult.

if bill gates can think of device manager then why can't linux. even without device manager i have been willing to dibble dabble with the command line, but enough is enough. if i'm going to have to get my hands dirty i expect at least for the code to work.

chipset drivers are included in the kernel.
the nvidia graphic drivers should work with the 7800gtx (where is the problem?).
there is no hardware raid. this is software raid provided by the bios. you can access it using dmraid. FC5 will support installing on a dmraid device (like nvraid).

try Gentoo 2005.1, use this livecd http://64.gnuplanet.de, it has dmraid support integrated.

We still have random look-up with 8174 drivers that we did not have with 7x.xx release. Hardware/software:
dell 670 2 xeon 64, quadro 4400, kernel 2.6.14.4, X.Org version : 6.8.99

Look up occurs when i launch an openGl app that is still in development and which use fbo. Sometimes X server hangs, it took 100% cpu, and after being killed the server cannot be re-launched without prior reboot (I have tried to do that but kernel hard hang).
I launch this app perhaps 50 times a day, and I have at least 1 hang a day.

I cannot go back to 7xxx driver because I need the packed_depth_stencil extension to be able to use stencil in fbo.

Same app run always fine and never look-up on the exact same hardware with “windows xp 64” bits and last nvidia 8x.xx driver

I join zipped nvidia-bug-report

I didn’t apply any of the zander patches because they don’t seems to be relatives with my problem, but perhaps it worth to try to apply them ?

Thanks for any help

Sorry if this has been answered already, but do I have to apply all the patches individually or is each one cumulative? I assume they're cumulative since the build numbers keep increasing, but I want to be sure.

@etymxris: they're not cumulative - if you think a cumulative patch would be helpful, I could make such a patch available.
