X doesn't start with GT240M and kernel > 2.6.31
1 Attachment(s)
I'm running Gentoo Linux. Laptop is Asus N61Vn with nvidia GT240M.

I got the laptop for over 6 months, everything was working fine up to kernel 2.6.31-gentoo-r10 and nvidia-drivers-190.42-r3 (included).
Got the problem when i upgraded my kernel to latest gentoo stable version aka 2.6.32-gentoo-r7.
I tried upgrading my nvidia-drivers but it doesn't work either, only thing working is returning to my old 2.6.31 kernel.

System hang 5 second after i try launching X, it become unreachable even with a ssh session opened from my desktop to my laptop before crash. Error is "NVIDIA(0): WAIT: (E, 0, 0x857d, 0)" in my Xorg.0.log.

PS : i got almost the same config (system and hardware) on my desktop except card is GT240 instead of GT240M, no problem on it.

I tried with kernel 2.6.33, same problem. Seems like it's related to new features in kernel > 2.6.31.
Problem seems to occur just after he enable acpi hotkeys events and just before he initialize OpenGL acceleration.

Re: error "WAIT: (E, 0, 0x857d, 0)" => X doesn't start
I'm running fedora, but the way I got around this was to add acpi=off as one of the kernel arguments.

After I did that no more problems booting and no more WAIT error.

You can add this value to the end of the 'kernel' lines in /etc/grub.conf (remember this is fedora)

or you can add them to the kernel lines when your grub.conf starts, if you're using grub.

hope this helps.

kernel 2.6.32

Thanks for the tip but i will stay on my kernel 2.6.31 with acpi until the bug with acpi and mobile nvidia is fixed in 2.6.32+ kernel

I'm running fine here with an 8600M GT and Gentoo, currently on kernel 2.6.33.
Maybe the driver-version does not fit with the newer kernel? I am using 256.25 now, but 195.36.24 (needs to be keyworded, but is in portage) worked fine for me, too.
Maybe just try that one?

Good luck!

I also have similar problems in fedora 12 and 13 (kernel > 2.6.30). No problems with fedora 11 an 2.6.30 kernel. The screen starts flickering or the xserver doesn't even start. I've attached the xorg.log files with errors like

Re: error "WAIT: (E, 0, 0x857d, 0)" => X doesn't start
BarbuDreadMon, do you still experience this crash if you pass option intel_iommu=off to the kernel at boot?

If intel_iommu=off prevents the crash, then this is a bug which should be fixed in the next release.

Re: error "WAIT: (E, 0, 0x857d, 0)" => X doesn't start
No more crash with intel_iommu=off at boot time. I'll wait for next release :).

Re: error "WAIT: (E, 0, 0x857d, 0)" => X doesn't start
Last several weeks I've noticed my laptop screen sometimes not coming up out of suspend, though I was changing kernel versions a lot so I thought that was causing it. Just had the opportunity to ssh into the laptop during one of those moments, and I see the exact same error in Xorg.0.log.

I'm on 2.6.32 amd64 with driver 270.41.06. I'll give the suggested intel_iommu=off tip a try. If that doesn't work, I'm going to go back to one of the 190 series, that was the last time I was free of this other problem: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=158091

Re: error "WAIT: (E, 0, 0x857d, 0)" => X doesn't start
Does anybody know whether disabling VT-d is identical to specifying intel_iommu=off?

(BTW, forgot to add on the previous post that I'm on a Thinkpad T410.)

Re: error "WAIT: (E, 0, 0x857d, 0)" => X doesn't start
Just had it occur again waking from sleep. Thinkpad T410 with NVS 3100M, kernel 2.6.32-21, driver 270.41.06. Didn't boot with intel_iommu=off, but I've had VT-d disabled from the BIOS since my last post. Gonna see if I can possibly revert to 2.6.31, based on BarbuDreadMon's experience.

Edit: Unable to revert since 2.6.31 is incompatible with my wifi card. :rw:
