Description Ted Kaczmarek 2002-09-11 11:41:35 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.0 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020408

Description of problem:
Kernel 2.4.9.X with tyan 2462 SMP athlon was ok, but with 2.4.18.X kernel my box
will lock up.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Get tyan 2462 with smp
2.Install nvidia drivers
3.Play tuxracer, will lock after short time playing

Actual Results:  Machine will almost always lock after 1st race in tuxracer.
Occasionally you will make into the 2nd race. One in a while screensaver would
cause it lock up as well.

Expected Results:  Game plays out.

Additional info:

In IRC someone else said they had the same problem with all their newer Athlons.
Common demonimator seems to be the 3Com nics. He stated  he switched to Intel
nic cards and no longer has any problems. His history was the same as mine,
meaning with the 2.4.9.X series both he and I had no problems, but with 2.4.18
we both have the problem. My motherboard has two built in nics so switching to
Intel nic in not an option for me.

Nvidia binary drivers are unsupported by Red Hat.  Please contact
Nvidia for support if you encounter any system instabilities while
using their drivers.
