Default Re: NVRM: os_schedule: Attempted to yield the CPU while in atomic[...] [260.19.21 x86

There is a thread to solve the problem here:

The reason why it looks like an Nvidia problem is, because the is no crash report. And the "NVRM: os_schedule: Attempted to yield the CPU while in atomic[...]" message is always printed after a start of the Xserver. And since it ends up in login screen - X11 doesn't get startet then any more - it is the last entry in the log.

To make it final I will test this now. But it looks good so far.
I think it's a more general nvidia driver problem which is triggered by different things. I get this error a lot on my Dell laptop with the newer drivers, but I don't use any VNC server. I remember though that nvidia did fix a bug related to screen grabbing and Compiz, which is a difference between 195.X and newer drivers (don't remember exactly in which version this was fixed, i.e. Compiz would grind to a halt when using VNC to access desktop).
