View Full Version : Panic with NVIDIA driver

03-20-06, 10:10 PM
I'm using a DELL Precision M70 with a NVIDIA FX Go1400 on it. I recently installed NVIDIA driver 1.0-8178. The installation process is excellent. No problem with the configuration file (xorg.conf), the nvidia0 device appears after reboot -- -r, the log file for the X server shows no errors and no warnings of any kind. After logging in, the solaris panics with the following message:

Mar 18 00:49:12 ruben panic[cpu0]/thread=d2103000:
Mar 18 00:49:12 ruben genunix: [ID 335743 kern.notice] BAD TRAP: type=e (#pf Page fault) rp=d2163dbc addr=7261688b occurred in module "genunix" due to an illegal access to a user address
Mar 18 00:49:12 ruben unix: [ID 100000 kern.notice]
Mar 18 00:49:12 ruben unix: [ID 839527 kern.notice] Xorg:
Mar 18 00:49:12 ruben unix: [ID 753105 kern.notice] #pf Page fault

The panic occurs with any random GUI event, (a new terminal, solaris registration window, sound config, logging out, etc.). If I disable the GLX extension the problem goes away, but obviously I don't have OpenGL.

I tested the driver with Solaris 10 1/06, OpenSolaris build 20, 30, 31a and 34. Always the same result.

Any input is appreciated. Regards...

@rabadan: please post the complete panic output; depending on where this crash occurs, it may have been fixed, already.

Hi Zander,

Attached to this post it's a messages file with a few panics. Also, there's an attachment of my NVIDIA setup process after installing Solaris.

Thanks alot for the feedback. Regards...

@rabadan: thanks for the log files; are any special reproduction steps required or do the panics consistently reproduce immediately or sometime after logging in?

I've been able to reproduce this problem, it should be resolved in the next NVIDIA Solaris graphics driver release.

Thanks Zander,

The panic occurs randomly during session, but if from your login screen, select command line login you get the panic for sure. If you login, and from your graphics desktop use a terminal to shutdown or reboot your machine, it will panic instead of shutting down.

Any Idea of when the new release of the driver will be available?
