Hi Devs,
Not sure if this is the best place to post, but I couldn't find a Pangolin specific forum.
I'm using 12.04 (beta2) and I get a kernel panic (flashing Caps + Scroll lock) after about 20mins of use if I activate the fancy non-open source nVidia driver.
lspci reports that I have:
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation G71GL [Quadro FX 3500] (rev a1)
I'm running on an Intel 5000X series motherboard and have a Xeon CPU if it makes any difference.
Is this a known bug?

Moved to Ubuntu +1 (Precise Pangolin) forum.
