I had numerous problems with the NVIDIA drivers and both RH 7.2 and SuSE
7.3. Problems now seem to be solved by upgrading the SuSE kernel to 2.4.18
and XFree86 to 4.2. Upgraded the kernel using the mantel kernel at (think that is the correct address).

Subject: [SLE] X-Windows crashing with NVidia driver

Hi all,

I typically get one x-windows crash per week. Most of the time it is
while I am using the mouse wheel in Mozilla, but just today I got one
while typing in a gnome-terminal window. Also, when I shutdown the
machine, about half of the time the entire machine locks up with bizarre
colors on the screen as X is shutting down.

I'm running:

SuSE 7.2 Pro


Right now YOU is refusing my attempts to upgrade. The Win4Lin kernel is
no longer necessary (VMWare 3.0 runs excellently on an SMP machine), so
I can ditch that if I need to.

One other odd thing I've noticed: occasionally the mouse pointer will go
flying across the screen in either a horizontal or vertical direction,
while I'm not touching the mouse. :-) The mouse config is Option
"Protocol" "imps/2"

Any known problems with the above?

Thanks in advance,
