9746 8800GTS kernel bug leaving X-session
1 Attachment(s)
boot to runlevel 3

startx -- -logverbose 6

NVIDIA logo is displayed and X-session starts properly.
Logout from X-session (doesn't seem to matter how long X is running).
Screen goes black, but green light is still lit on monitor, so not in power saving
Load average goes over 10.
After a few seconds there is a "beep" sound.
Screen stays black.
dmesg and syslog have:

Can still login remotely with ssh to shutdown.

I have nvidia-bug-reports both before the BUG (while X-session is running) and
after the BUG (while screen is blank and logged in remotely with ssh).
IF i can figure out how to attach a file...

BFGR88640GTSE BFG Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS
Asrock 939DUAL-VSTA with latest BIOS
AMD Athlon64 3700+
Hannsg HW191D monitor
Linux goth.rogera.net 2.6.18-1.2869.fc6 #1 SMP Wed Dec 20 14:51:19 EST 2006 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

Fedora Core 6 with atrpms packages
[root@goth ~]# rpm -qa | grep -i nvidia | sort

Would it help debugging if I:

reported this problem somewhere else (this is my first post to nvnews)?
didn't load the lirc modules?
didn't boot with vga=792?
loaded fewer modules in xorg.conf?

Any other suggestions?

Re: 9746 8800GTS kernel bug leaving X-session
Yes, I'd be curious whether this problem persists if you are not booting with vga=792 (and/or vesafb support).

Yes, Lonni, removing the vga=792 works around the problem.

I had tried to search for "8800 kernel bug", but didn't get any hits.

Now, After searching for "8800", I found this thread that also mentions
not using framebuffer consoles:


Thanks for the quick and accurate response.

If a future version of the nvidia linux drivers allows G80's to work with
framebuffer consoles, I hope that it gets mentioned in the release notes.

Thanks, I've opened bug 280128 for this issue.

Re: 9746 8800GTS kernel bug leaving X-session - fixed with 9755
After upgrading from 9746 to 9755, I can boot an 8800GTS with vga=792.

[root@goth ~]# cat /proc/cmdline
ro root=LABEL=/ 3 vga=792

I can run startx and logout repeatedly without a kernel bug. It just drops back to the normal console prompt.


Thanks for taking care of this.
