X/PC hang by starting xawtv, vncviewer
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi,

i am using debian linux (testing)

Hardware:
VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C693A/694x [Apollo PRO133x]
GeForce4 MX 440
bt848 tv card

Software:
kernel 2.4.22
gcc 3.3.6 (Debian 1:3.3.6-7)
XFree86 4.3.0.1 (Debian 4.3.0.dfsg.1-14 20050601051219 fabbione@fabbione.net)

i tried several nvidia drivers with different prolems:
version 5336:
- vncviewer, vmware freezes X after some time
-> remote login possible, "killall -9 X" restarts the xserver
-> after that the text console shows only "acsi art", but X works again
- no problems using xawtv (bttv, v4l)

version 6629:
- xawtv freezes the Computer after a short time (no remote login possible)

version 7676:
- xawtv freezes the Computer immediately (no remote login possible)

The problems are reproduceable.
All drivers and kernel are compiled with gcc 3.3.6 (see above).

what ist the problem here?
before i used the gforce4 MX i had a gforce 256 ddr - no problems with this card and version 5336 ...

Hardware Problem? Driver Problem?


THX for help,
sebastian.

Your /var/log/messages is full of entries like these:
Aug 24 13:28:39 wurm kernel: NVRM: bad caching on address 0xc2eeb000: actual 0x163 != expected 0x173

The problem is called cache aliasing and can occur when multiple mappings to a certain memory page exist. To fix the problem you need to upgrade your kernel as it is a kernel bug. Not sure if the latest 2.4x kernel fixes the issue, if it doesn't you must upgrade to 2.6.11 or newer.

You may want to enable the debugging stuff for the bttv driver and see if that gets you any additional info.

options bttv bttv_verbose=2 bttv_debug=1 irq_debug=1
