Still freezing for me on my 8600M GT, I stay with the 180.29.

The nvidia kernel module fails to load here on my ubuntu 8.10 box with 2.6.29 custom kernel
previous nvidia driver version works fine

Relevant dmesg lines



[37366.612848] IRQ 25/nvidia: IRQF_DISABLED is not guaranteed on shared IRQs

This line aldo appears with previous version but it seems to be harmless at least in my machine/conf

[37470.764058] nvidia: Unknown symbol __per_cpu_offset
[37470.764638] nvidia: Unknown symbol per_cpu__kernel_stack
[37470.764974] nvidia: Unknown symbol per_cpu__cpu_number
[37470.765684] nvidia: Unknown symbol per_cpu__current_task

@erusul: which release do you mean by '[the] previous driver version'? The open-source parts of the 180.37 and 180.44 Linux graphics driver releases are identical; the closed-source does not reference Linux specific symbols.

Sorry for omitting that is

@erusul: this most likely is a problem with your kernel source tree, rather than with the 180.44 NVIDIA Linux graphics driver release - the only change to the open-source Linux kernel interface layer between 180.29 and 180.44 was an update to use del_timer_sync() instead of del_timer() in nv.c:nv_stop_rc_timer().

Ok silly me... i use git and a git checkout v2.6.29 was in order before installing the new drivers...

BTW why do you need the corresponding sources? it is not enough with the build directory?

This version seems to work well for me. The previous .37 and .41 versions were producing some random blocks on various HD clips which had previously played faultlessly with the earlier drivers. These were showing up with both mplayer and xine so seemed to be driver related. I was also getting problems where broken streams would freeze X completely. All these symptoms seem to have been fixed with the new version. Thanks to all concerned.
