Hi,

I have a MythTV frontend running Gentoo on an AMD 64bit with an Nvidia
6600 graphics card. I have had no end of problems with the graphics card
(Xid errors). It crashes with a white line across the screen regularly
when 3d goom is up when I'm playing music. I've so far been putting it
down to the nvidia driver but I'm beginning to think I may have a dodgy
stick of RAM or something as I also get Segmentation faults when doing
emerge's on occasion. When this happens it says its an OS error and
retrying the emerge normally fixes it. How can I find out what the
problem is? Is there a way of testing the RAM? Is it possible that it is
the nvidia drivers still (I am often playing music when I run an emerge)??

Any help much appreciated.

Cheers,
Dave.
