Re: Fedora 7 freezes two or three times per day

Just want to check with the list that what's the current situation on this freezing problem with the nvidia driver. Any solution yet?

Since I switch to the nv driver, I haven't had a single freeze.



I changed my video card a few weeks ago as one was on clearance sale. It is still an Nvidia card and it works like a dream. No issues at all.

On the other hand, with a fully updated FC6 box, I have had freezes that show the exact symptoms that I had on my F7 machine. During the freeze I ssh'd into the computer and ran top and saw that Xorg was at 95%. When I tried to strace the machine froze. My work computer us using ATI so this points to a kernel issue.

With what I have been reading about changing the kernel scheduler and queuing system, I wonder if there is a conflict that will take some time to find.

I have been to busy to look at the nvidia site for personal reasons.

Work and other things are why I have taken so long to reply.
