Console corrupted when X is started
Hi all,

I have a Vaio S4M/S laptop with a Nvidia Geforce 6200 go and the lastest drivers 9755 installed on FreeBSD 6.2.

The problem is simple.

As X starts the textual consoles (ttyv0 to 7) are corrupted. Even shutting X off will not do any better.

X works without problems, but the consoles are unaccessible.

Any hints?

My X configuration is clean (no particular options enabled like RenderAccel or such)

I have the same problem with a GeForce 6200 (driver 1.0.9746 from FreeBSD ports). I had a FX 5900 on the same system and the problem was not present. Once X is started, switching to the textual console give me a black screen and my LCD monitor says "No signal". It seems a problem related to 6200 cards, but I'd like to see it fixed, since the importance of textual consoles.

Re: Console corrupted when X is started
Linux driver is also broken

Re: Console corrupted when X is started
So? Do you confirm the problem? Are you working on a fix?

Re: Console corrupted when X is started
Got the same problem, FreeBSD 6.2, 9746 driver.
Problem also seen in Debian GNU/Linux "etch" with the latest driver..

And I've got a few anomalies in Xorg in FreeBSD as well -- part of the rightmost border of the screen appears at the left, like when you play Super Mario Bros, you can cross from one side of the screen to the other.....

Re: Console corrupted when X is started
Are you using standard VGA or high resolution (VESA) consoles?

Re: Console corrupted when X is started
Standard text console, 80x25, no VESA.

I can confirm that with 6-STABLE (built on June 1st, 2007). Driver 9746 exhibits out-of-sync (according to my monitor) problems on the console once X has run at least one time. Before X has run, there are no apparent problems. 9631 does not exhibit the same problem.

1. Running nVidia AGP.
2. BFG 6800 OC AGP 128MB
3. DVI
4. dmesg (verbose) boot:

Re: Console corrupted when X is started
Have you tried the 100.14.11 driver release?

alexdupre 06-27-07 01:48 AM

Re: Console corrupted when X is started
Yes, just tried, same result :-( How can I help you?

I finally tried the 100.14.11 release. The monitor no longer shows the out-of-sync message. It now goes to sleep when I switch to a console.
