drivers 270.41.06 freeze when resize konsole
 
2 Attachment(s)
I am Fedora user, and I install the last release Fedora 15, KDE desktop with desktop effects
I have a toshiba laptop with 8700M GT card.
I use the 270.41.06 driver, installed with the akmod-nvidia from rpm-fusion.

When I want resize the Konsole, my laptop freeze, nothing work...

I can see a similar bug in Kubuntu: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...rs/+bug/760632

The workaround launch konsole with "env XLIB_SKIP_ARGB_VISUALS=1 konsole " work for me.

But there is another problem: I use a virtual machine for Windows7, and when I launch my VM
my screen is blurred, and the workaround don't work.

If I disable the desktop effects there is no problems.
I think that problems are related.

I attach 2 nvidia-bug-report.log.gz:

nvidia-bug-report.log.gz
before crash and
nvidia-bug-report2.log.gz
after crash.

I had exactly this issue, and had the RAM timings misconfigured in my BIOS. Fixing memory timings and reinstalling NVIDIA drivers was a solution for me; no Konsole freezes anymore.

Request a BIOS update from your manufacturer, or check if you have 2 SO-DIMMs with different timings inside your laptop.

This is a transparency issue.

Turn off all transparencies in your KWin theme.

There is a new driver released with the following fix:

Fixed a bug that caused freezes and crashes when resizing windows in KDE 4 with desktop effects enabled using X.Org X server version 1.10 or later.
This seems like the bug you're experiencing. Can you give it a try?
