Smile NVidia 1.0-9631 drivers + GeForce Go 6600 feedback

Hi there!

In a previous thread, I listed some issues that I had with a GeForce Go 6600.

The freeze problem (in OpenGL and 2d applications) seems to be finaly solved.
My system has been rock solid for more than two days (normaly 1 hour of gaming should be enough to freeze the system).

But, there is still other major issues that remain unsolved. I'm not going to repeat the story all over again, because I already said it, but it would be nice to know if the NVidia Linux team is planning to solve them in the next driver releases.

Thank you for the new drivers!

Unhappy Re: NVidia 1.0-9631 drivers + GeForce Go 6600 feedback

Almost a week later, and my system freezes again!
I'm getting tired of this!

I followed some suggestions from the other thread, but without success.

I checked my memory with memtest86+ and it had no errors.

AFAIR I had freezing only with one of first driver releases when render acceleration appeared. This was few years ago.
I also booted my system with these kernel options, and I got a freeze after some time playing ET.

In attachment there are two bug reports. One using the regular kernel options, and another with the disabled kernel options suggested by zbiggy.

All the bug reports were created after the freeze, before entering X.org and the "--logverbose 6" flag was used in the previous X.org session.

Thanks,

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

Yup! Version 2.02, straight from the manufacturer.
