Binary package hint: nvidia-glx-180
- AMD Turion(tm) 64 bits X2 Mobile Technology TL-52 (2 cores)
- Kubuntu Jaunty 64 bits
- nVidia Corporation G72M [Quadro NVS 110M/GeForce Go 7300] (rev a1)
- nvidia drivers 180.44-0ubuntu1, 177.82-0ubuntu0.1
Using linux-image-2.6.27-11-generic or linux-image-2.6.28-11-generic I have a mostly stable system if I use nvidia driver nvidia-glx-177, no hang-ups.
But since I upgraded to the latest nvidia 180.44-0ubuntu1 my system hangs-up very very often (i.e., after 20 minutes from swith on my laptop). This is, it gets completely frozen and I must restart it by pressing the power button for 4 seconds.
I've tryed dissabling GLX effects but it doesn't matter.
Unfortunatelly I have no idea of which the cause could be. Any suggestion on how to inspect it is really welcome.
PD: I've changed the title and description of this bug since I thought is was related to kernel version (linux-image-2.6.28-11-generic) but I've confirmed that the hangups occur with any kernel when using nvidia 180.
