| Well ok, here goes. I recently did a post about X quiting out with
| a sig11 a lot. Its usually about once or twice a week but the
| other day it did it like 3 times in a row. The only responce I got
| was that it could be bad ram. So I ran memtest on the machine.
| Nothin, I have registered ECC ram (required for my board) I've
| pulled the sound card, no effect. I havent had a spontaneous
| reboot since I got the new video card. Which gives me the same
| effect weather I use the comercial nvidia drivers or the open
| source nv drivers. I dont seem to have the same problem in
| windows, but I run windows about as much as I run in the street.
| The only thing I've come up with is that its either the power
| supply, or I need to get some sort of line conditioner for the plug
| its pluged into. I have a beautiful surge protector, but I guess
| that wouldnt stop drops in the power level. Thanks for all your
Thanks, that provides more useful information....
I'm guessing it may be the Video drivers. I've seen several posts
recently about the NVidia drivers and mouse problems with FC3. Basic
lockup issues and mysterious reboots and the like.
Something to try.... Get a generic video card to test with.... STAY
AWAY from ATI and NVidia Chipsets. This will help eliminate any video
Another thing to try.... Use the init level 3 instead of 5. If you
have problems with crashes still, you know it is related to something
other than the video drivers. The text mode is much less stressful
for the video drivers.
Post a message to NVidia describing your problem, if not already
done. They should support the drivers they have.... and wait for the
BIG wheels to turn.
PS: I always have similar problems with my ATI card... and installing
FC? and running X right out of the BOX. The install always goes fine
weather in Graphical mode or Text mode.
