Re: troubles with nautilus on x86_64

So it's now the middle of the week and there has been no activity on the bug report I made about nautilus. It's important (to me at least) that people realize that this is a BLOCKER bug because gnome is not usable with this bug in place. You only get about half the environment and as wwe are approaching the freeze point it would seem that *THIS* kind of bug would be quite interesting.

Hope you don't mind getting a message off list...I know you aren't a noob and this suggestion will make it seem like I think you are.

With my K8V using standard Samsung DIMMs from the Asus approved list, I cannot make my system run reliably at 200 mhz FSB...this system just does ***not*** like high latency memory. I spent over 100 hrs trying various memory timings and never found anything that wouldn't throw an error at least once within 8 hrs. Eventually I gave up and switched to 166 mhz FSB. The errors were always above 1000 mb...and primarily triggered by Test 6.

At the very least Memtest86+ V3.00 gives a little interesting data on what Asus BIOS uses for default settings. Running Test 6 for an extended period might possibly be interesting. The very bottom timing setting (cmd delay or something like that) was the only thing that helped but that didn't correct the problem entirely. BTW, these same DIMMs run fine on my Athlon XP system running a 200 mhz FSB...not exactly the same thing but at least I know the DIMMs are with spec.

At 166, this K8V/3200+ is dead reliable...at 200 it simply isn't. Perhaps you are running faster memory...but I have seen reports of problems running fast DIMMs with Winbond dram also. I gain a little of the speed back by running the CPU in turbo mode...2052 mhz which doesn't seem to phaze the CPU...the problem here is simply on the memory bus...and this may indeed be a pcb layout problem...of course, Asus says the problem doesn't exist and I should run Windows. There is an article on the Muskin site about the Athlon 64 and memory that I found very interesting...and perhaps we know why the Opteron uses registered memory...even using 2 DIMMs unbuffered is really pushing the limits.

Sorry to bother ya if you have been all thru this stuff...I know the frustrations...and since I am running FC2 T3 without any problems at all...
