185.18.31 black screen
 
1 Attachment(s)
Upgrading to 185.18.31 gave me a black screen when loading x, no other way to exit than cold reboot. Had to revert to 185.18.14.
Attached bug nvidia-bug-report generated just after the cold reboot.

I'm on arch linux x86_64, x.org server 1.6.3,
GeForce 8400M G
Linux mocha 2.6.30-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Jul 31 07:30:28 CEST 2009 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T7700 @ 2.40GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

I think he is trying to tell you to execute those programs from a root console.

That probably won't change the outcome. This is likely the X server "hang" bug in the nvidia linux drivers versions 185.18.29, and 185.18.31. So far 185.18.14 seems to be working fine. Look at these posts;

First post for X server hang bug for 185.18.31

Same problem with a dell precision 6400 with quadro fx 1600.

Should be noted that on this computer, .14 and .29 where working fine, only .31 hangs.

Thanks pavlinux and thefirstm.

I entered those commands on the console, or I rather went back to init level 1 and started X. The problem is the same, except the screen isn't completely black but dark grey and has a small horizontal line in the upper left corner (like a text cursor but not blinking). Cold reboot is the only way to get out. I attach the nvidia-bug-report but bear in mind that my first attempt at running X was just after installing v185.18.31 so it complained about a kernel module mismatch (this will appear in the NVRM messages in the kernel log).

Now in this thread other people have reported the same bug on other platform so it's more likely a v185.18.31 issue.

Is there any investigation work for this bug? Would be nice to know.
