We've been experiancing lockups on multiple systems:
- athlon-smp redhat 9 geforce 4600
- athlon-smp suse 9.3 geforce 4600
- opteron-smp suse 9.3 geforce fx5200
- opteron-smp-dualcore - opensuse 10 geforce 6600gt
...running every version of houdini in the last year. The only common
demoninator is that we're using non quadro cards - but is that really
going to alter the stability that much? I believe that the cards were
using are the same is the quadro's apart from a resistor on the board.
Are the drivers from two unrelated code bases?
I'm now longing for the days of the good ole SGI's. This was just
wasn't a problem then. Mac's are even looking attractive now - at least
you know your running standardised hardware. This is now driving us a
little crazy - be keen to hear from any large shops - have any of you
cracked this? Also, sesi could help by recommending a hardware setup
that works(tm). (and isn't three years old).
In hope of stability... P
