I am trying to get an nForce4 system up and running
(Supermicro H8DCE (2) Opteron) and have experienced some problems.
I have had similar (but not identical) problems with Ubuntu and SuSE 10.0
My system just locks up frequently. The logs have been little help but
what I have found indicated CPU oops messages that seem related to nForce4.
I believe *my* problems are actually related to the combination of
nForce4, nVidia 6200 PCIe video card, and nVidia X drivers.
I say this because I reinstalled Ubunut yesterday and worked all day
with out lockup but with noticeably slow video. I then got around to
the nVideo proprietary X drivers and immediately began experiencing the
lock up again. I have tried the various X settings I found in the SuSE
and in some newsgroup postings but to no avail.
I am also experiencing a minor problem with the nForce4 attached SATA
resetting LBA mode when I reset but resetting OK if I power down.
not a deal breaker like the lock ups.
Hope this helps. If not please provide more information and maybe
someone can help.
