Quadro FX3700 freezes with 177 and 180 on ubuntu
I don't know if it is exactly the same problem, but it looks fairly close...
The display freeze at some random time, except for the mouse cursor that could still be moved, but that couldn't affect anything. The cursor became a black arrow tilting on the left. I am not sure on this particular crash, but when it happened before, we couldn't do Ctrl-Alt-F1 to go the first console.
I was able to log in via SSH to do the nvidia-bug-report.log and the gdb.log while the display was still frozen. After doing that I usually do (init 3, kill -KILL `pidof Xorg`, init 5) and the user is able to log back in and start working again.
The setup is a Core I7-920 with a Quadro FX3700 on CentOS 5.2 64 bit with driver 169.09.
I did some random tests with the following versions:
All with the same results.
From now on I will create a nvidia-bug-report.log for each crash.
It's a problem that has been occuring a lot as we have a lot of those computer kit in place.
