(All ubuntu 64 bit)
1 - MSI motherboard RS480-IL, AMD64 3200+, nvidia 256 card, nforce chipset,
2 - Same as 1 with ATI card: crashes
3 - Asus motherboard, Intel Core2Duo 1.6 GHz, nvidia 512 card, nforce
chipset, never crashed
I have had no problems with nvidia drivers (but I did with the ati fglrx
drivers). IME, although closed source, nvidia drivers have very good linux
performance compared to other brands. The fact that you have these problems
as well with the nv drivers says enough I guess. You don't have driver
problems, you have hardware problems.
