Google maps crashes 8756
 
Geforce MX440SE, xorg 6.8.2, linux 2.6.16.9

I get occasional X crashes - cpu 99% (kill -9 X from a ssh is the only way out, then a reboot as monitor is garbled and keyboard input goes AWOL), while using google map satellite images.

The only error log is this in syslog:

NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 6, PE0000 0548 ff474749 1f464548 00000000 ff434047

This has happened on at least the last 3 released Linux nVidia drivers. I am starting to get fed-up with it now - I don't mind a crash now and then, but when it locks the whole system up it is useless.

Re: Google maps crashes 8756
 
Thanks. I have a few questions:
0) Why are you using the ConnectedMonitor option?
1) Does this reproduce if you set NvAGP to 0 or 1 in xorg.conf?
2) Does this reproduce if you are not using vesafb?
3) What kind of motherboard & BIOS version are you using?

Thanks,
Lonni

OK,

0) Please see this thread and my posts to it (Lethe)
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=63773

1) I don't know - I will have to test for you, but seeing as I build monolithic kernel (nvidia is only module), I will have to do a special kernel build to take out AGPGART built in.

2) Again, I do not know - I have always used vesaFB?

3) The mobo is via KT7:

00:00.0 Host bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8363/8365 [KT133/KM133] (rev 03)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8363/8365 [KT133/KM133 AGP]
00:07.0 ISA bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C686 [Apollo Super South] (rev 22)
00:07.1 IDE interface: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C586A/B/VT82C686/A/B/VT823x/A/C/VT8235 PIPC Bus Master IDE (rev 10)
00:07.2 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6202 [USB 2.0 controller] (rev 10)
00:07.3 USB Controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6202 [USB 2.0 controller] (rev 10)
00:07.4 Host bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82C686 [Apollo Super ACPI] (rev 30)

I do not know the BIOS version off hand - but it is original, so dates from around 2000.

I have just build and install xorg -> X Window System Version 6.9.0
Release Date: 21 December 2005, so I will presist and report back here if I still get this issue. Maybe others that get it too can tack on.

Thanks for reply.

Nick
P.S. I am also on KDE3.5.2

Oh dear. Oh dear. Oh dear.

I got this again, even with new xorg 6.9.0 build and kernel 2.6.16.11:

Apr 27 18:47:34 linuxamd kernel: NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 6, PE0000 0338 ff29273f 00000000 ff25233b ff232139

and it appears to have trashed my monitor too.

GUI locked up (KDE3.5.2 built from source). I ssh'ed in, killed X. On return to console it was all garbled, and kaleidoscopic in movement... monitor then started making a whining noise - and on/off button didn't work - I pulled the power cord. Now it is dead as a dodo :-(

I am getting worried here now what the hell is going on...

Nick
