OK I was able to reproduce the problem. I am attaching both:
1. The log generated by nvidia-bug-report.sh.
2. The NVIDIA installer log, even though I did not have any problems installing the driver.
Here are some facts:
- With this particular nvidia-bug-report.log.gz:
* Was running ioquake3, everything froze up (keyboard and mouse unresponsive), and audio started cycling.
* Xorg process consuming 100% CPU as reported by top.
* Unable to recover without rebooting computer.
* I logged in via SSH to generate bug report log and to clean things up afterwards.
- The 3D appliations that I'm using are GtkRadiant (http://www.qeradiant.com/cgi-bin/tra...ki/ZeroRadiant
) and ioquake3 (http://ioquake3.org/
). Both seem to be causing crashes, When I run only Radiant the desktop freezes every few hours. I compiled both of these softwares myself, for 64 bit, on this very same machine.
- For this attached log, I shut down /etc/init.d/gdm and then ran "startx -- -logverbose 6" from the terminal to generate the bug report.
- When grub first boots my kernel, I get a message like this one across my screen:
"[ 0.512146] PCI: Failed to allocate mem resource #6:80000@e0000000 for 0000:0f:00.0".
I don't know if this is related to the graphics card instability or not.
- All Debian Lenny updates have been applied.
- Using latest NVIDIA production release drivers, I have not tried anything older.
- Kernel is 2.6.26-2-amd64 (Debian Lenny, vanilla).
- My HP Z400 has an up-to-date BIOS (786G3 v01.14 rev.A).
- On the HP support website there were some BIOS downloads for some video cards, but not for my Quadro FX3800.
- I have NOT tried booting with "clocksource=hpet".
