I'm getting occasional crashes with video player and X.
Reading logs of "startx &>log" and XFree86.?.log when the machines
crashes shows that X server is dying.
For wine, I get some reproducible crashes, for example when running
'make test',
but this only wine that is crashing, always into
I used Duron and now I'm using Athlon.

I never changed the AGP configuration if XF86Config, I only changed the
specified by NVidia, such as module comments and add.

I dont know this bug, I asked about crashes on NVidia forums but get
not sufficient information. Im using the latest available RedHat 8.0
kernel, 2.4.18-19.8.0.

Thanks for the tips.
