lol, I might try that. Although I really don't need to go that far.
Lately, I have been able to spontaniously reboot by running five GL
applications at once. Which isn't pleasant but doesn't concern me too
much. Each time I've had a panic there has been only one gl application
running... and lately all GL programs are causing this issue.

As a matter of fact, that is what I think caused the problem. I just
upgraded to the latest drivers on the 19th... right before I had these
problems. That combined with the fact that all of these issues can be
consistently caused by running gl programs gives me strong cause to

this message before the new driver was installed. But I do know that
the old kernel had it loaded (it was hard coded with the configuration

presence of both AGPs.

lol, I would love to... if I thought I could help. But I am still
learning as much as I can about the kernel... nowhere near the level
required to help.
