Greetings. I am having a problem with lockups on a new FC12 box (dual core 3 ghz, 4 gb memory,HDPVR,nvidia 8400gs). This happens reliably when replaying MythTV videos, but also randomly at other times using other apps. Usually but not always this is accompanied by a kernel panic (caps lock + scroll lock lights flash on keyboard).
I did a core dump with kdump and it reports:
Thread 1 (<main task>):
Cannot access memory at address 0xffff880028025b70
I am in the process of running memtest86+ right now, and it's been through several passes without errors. I know it needs to run more, but given the reliability of this problem with MythTV video playback I am wondering if the problem could be in the video card memory.
Does anyone know of a linux (or bootable) tester for video memory? All I am able to find are some things for windoze such as this
Also is there any way to track that address from the core dump back to a physical location?
