Bug#342817: 342817: nvidia hangs system continues
found 342817 1:2.1.3-1
retitle 342817 nv open source driver hangs system with GeForce 6600 PCIe
I thought I'd give this another try, since the proprietary drivers (as
packaged for Debian) are unavailable for the 2.6.22 kernels. As before,
it hangs the system so badly that only a manual power off fixes things.
For me, this bug is very severe: it hangs the entire system, and exposes
me to security risks because I must stay with an older kernel.
