System freezes with 190.42 for 4 - 6 sec. on certain apps (mostly QT4 based) like Opera or Amarok. But Compiz window effects make huge problems too. My System is not use able with this driver! Changing back to 185.18.36

Bug-report attached

Hi

i had exactly the same problem with 190.42. The freezes where often triggered by mouseover effects in kde 4 especially in dolphin while using compiz. No problems with kwin as i remember.

My solution was to comment out some entries in xorg.conf

# Option "RenderAccel" "true"
# Option "AllowGLXWithComposite" "true"
# Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
# Option "RandRRotation" "true"
# Option "OnDemandVBlankInterrupts" "true"
# Option "NvAGP" "0"
# Option "DamageEvents" "true"
# Option "UseEvents" "true"
# Option "TripleBuffer" "True"
# Option "BackingStore" "True"
# Option "PixmapCacheSize" "1000000"
# Option "AllowSHMPixmaps" "0"

one of this settings is the "killer" :)
So the driver is running with default settings now and the freezes are gone. Hope this will help you

Please see the numerous other recent threads about UseEvents being broken on GeForce 8 and up. I've disabled it for future releases until we can get to the bottom of this issue.

I've UseEvents disabled in my config. It is better when with it enabled, but it doesn't help. I still have freezes on my quadro nvs140m
