I am having big stability problems with the kernel module. I have Dell XPS 720 H2C with Quad Core processor, 2x 8800 GTX cards. When I boot with the maxcpus=1 option, the computer runs happily, but as soon as I use all cores, running matlab for more than 15 minutes results in spontanous reboots. I am using Ubuntu 7.10 x86_64
Is anybody else experiencing these kind of problems? I will install Fedora Core now, as I have read people having succes with that distro.
Is it possible to use the opensource nv module on 1 8800GTX for use with X Windows and the binary module on the second 8800GTX for use with cuda?
I am really sorry to say so, but advising users to only use 1 processor when using the binary NVIDIA module is not really encouraging people to see NVIDIA as a HPC-supplier…
I hope someone has some tips for me to make it all work reliably. And I also hope that NVIDIA will come with an open-source CUDA driver :)
