An article over at Slashdot.org points out that Apple may be deleting posts relating to complaints regarding nVidia’s current graphic card drivers used in the Mac Pro line of computers. The post goes as follows:
“I purchased a Mac Pro within the first week that they were available, and immediately upgraded to 3GB of RAM (knowing that OSX loves memory). When playing 3D games (World of Warcraft mainly), the game would Kernel Panic the machine if I had played it for a few hours, or if I swapped in and out of the game a few times, etc. I eventually found out (from an official Blizzard poster) that NVidia has a bug in their drivers that kernel panics a Mac Pro if any memory past the 2GB boundary is addressed in the driver. After waiting months for a resolution to this, I decided to post on Apple’s support site. Within a few hours, they removed it from the site, placing it under ‘Posts Removed by Administration.’ What’s going on here? Is Apple trying to hide this bug, or is there something more serious going on between Apple and NVidia?”
No clear answer seems to have been provided and other users have complained about this bug under practically identical conditions.
If you have any ideas about this or have had a similar experience, please let us know.
