[REGRESSION] 185.18.08 X crash on VT switch
 
1 Attachment(s)
When switching VT with the 185.18.08 driver the X Server crashes. (get back to the login screen but I stay at the same VT).

Any older driver works fine.

This also means that I can no longer supsend to ram (just end up at the login screen)

Bug report is attached.

Thanks for the quick reply, will use 185.18.04 until the fixed driver arrives.

When I first installed 185.18.08 I had compiz disabled and did not get X-crashes when switching VT.
(The terminal stays blank as it has allways done on my 9600m GS.
killing X and reposting the videocard with vbtracetool -p would restore it. But I didn't do this now)

As soon as I turned compiz on I get an X-crash when I switch VT (CTRL-SHIFT-F1).
(terminal stays black, like above)
When I witch back to X (SHIFT-F7) X crashes or restarts.
I end up on the login screen, the same as reported earlier in this thread.

I now also sometimes get black squares in stead of letters when I type in a gnome-terminal with compiz enabled.
(I do not get these with compiz disabled)
See screenshot, right-bottom

I attached bugreports without compiz and after compiz enabled (=after a VT switch X-crash)

Just tested here with 9800GTX+, 185.18.08, XFree86 4.70 and 2.6.29.2 kernel, and all appears to work normally - I can get to any VT, between them, and back cleanly, at least for the few minutes I tested.

me too.
openSUSE 11.1 x86_64 with quadro fx 1600 in dell precision m6300.

and detecting and applying second monitor on the fly with "nvidia-settings" tool also crashes X when configuring second monitor and clicking on "Apply".

this works, when compiz-fusion is NOT running.

I can confirm that this indeed fixed the issue for me.
Thanks for the quick fix.
