Default Re: X freeze with 8178 sometimes

You can also try booting with pci=conf1

I don't see a K8NGM2-FID motherboard listed here:

Have you verified that you're using the latest BIOS?

Thanks,
Lonni

Hi Lonni,

Here are the links for the MSI board
http://www.msi.com.tw/program/produc...il.php?UID=702
http://www.msicomputer.com/product/p...2-FID&class=mb

I have verified Im using the latest BIOS (3.20).
I have also tried pci=conf1 but continue to have the problem. How does pci-conf1 help? Please note that this is a random problem, it does not happen always.

I am attaching a new bug report, since the old one showed an interrupt problem (I have fixed that, it was just some configuration I tried in the BIOS). The only thing I can think of is if there is a timing issue somewhere when initializing the driver. Also note that for the MSI board, I need to use "Pin Setup" in the BIOS for the nic, instead of MGII since this is the only way to detect and initialize the nic (using forcedeth).

nvidia-bug-report.log

What are the wait errors I get (look at my first post)

Thanks for your help.

The WAIT errors indicate that the driver is waiting for some event to complete. In some cases this points to a BIOS or kernel bug.

1.0-8756 has been officially released:

Can you verify whether this problem persists in 1.0-8756?

Thanks!

For anyone else experiencing these problems, I solved them by upgrading to 8756.

Thanks Lonni!
