Default Solaris 10 - quadro fx - Xorg lockup / hangs

Hi,

I have been using an nvidia quadro fx 3400 in a Dell Precision 670 running Solaris 10 x86 for a while now, and I have been extremely happy with its performance. Recently though, I ran into the Xorg lockup problem.

For over a year I've been using Solaris 10 from an 05 or 06 CD distribution. I perform regular patch updates, so the system was up-to-date. This distribution of Solaris did not come with the nvidia drivers, so I installed the package from nvidia's web site (NVIDIA-Solaris-x86-1.0-9755.run). I have had absolutely no problems with this setup, using a dual-screen setup under Xorg.

Just a few days ago, I was forced to re-setup the system. I downloaded the latest Solaris CD distribution (8/07), which comes with nvidia drivers pre-packaged. Frequently, CDE will lock up in the middle of doing some work (nothing spectacular: Mozilla, dtpad, etc.). The system will still work and I am able to log in, but anything graphics-related is pretty much busted. Typically, the last application I used will report 100% CPU usage ('top'), and I am unable to kill it. Also, I am unable to kill -9 or kill -TERM the Xorg process. Rebooting is the only option left.

I have since installed the latest nvidia graphics package (NVIDIA-Solaris-x86-96.43.01.run), but unfortunately with the same results.

Below, you will find some excerpts from the messages log. (Note that 'led' is the machine name). I will be happy to report on machine specs if you let me know what may be helpful.

Any help and pointers will be much appreciated.

Thank you!

- Alex
