Have they stated this or this inferred from the lack of movement by Nvidia?
I have gotten this in writing from an NVidia engineer (who actually
dealt with the IA64 driver), so it wasn't a public statement, but it was
a statement nevertheless.
What I _infer_ is that HP discontinued the zx series of workstations
because of a lack of supported IA64 video drivers: the only difference
between the discontinued workstations and the servers (which are very
much alive, indeed they've just been upgraded!) is the AGP slot.
I uninstalled the Nvidia driver, then re-installed X with the nv driver
The problem is unchanged.
That sounds about right - the problem really is with your libc (or
rather, an interaction between the NV driver and your libc).
How would I go about changing back? Looking thru debian docs, I see
references to downgrading to a different distribution but I didn't
find anything about downgrading a single package.
You can do worse than simply install 'by force' an old version of glibc.
To that, all you need to do is download the debs and install. So:
Also, where would I get the deb file?
From the archive!
Is there an archive somewhere?
You bet there is. Check here:
you might want to download and install
You may not need to go back _quite_ so far, but I'm really not sure -
haven't had nvidia hardware in an ia64 system for some time now.
As always, playing with libc on a running system can be a bit dangerous,
do be a _little_ careful. :)
