3d apps crash and infobash restarts X [Solved]


Anyone know why if I try to use any nvidia driver other than the 7184, 3d apps crash and running infobash in a terminal restarts X?

Running 7184 works just fine. I have seen other people in irc running the same card that have beryl working with no problems, however they are all using a newer driver like 9631 or 9746.


Holy poop batman. I think I figured out what the problem was. The old ram I was using was mismatched. one slot had a 128mb PC2700 ddr333 the other had 512mb PC2100 ddr266. I hadn't tried any new drivers since upgrading my ram. Just installed 9631 ran infobash, played Chromium and a couple other 3d games with no problems. W00T.
