Default Re: startx causes kernel OOPS on Fujitsu D2618-C1 mobo, debian, many kernels & driver

Dear sandipt

Thank you for taking the time to take a look at this! Here's the output you asked for:

Code:
# cat /proc/driver/nvidia/gpus/0/information 
Model: 		 Tesla C2070
IRQ:   		 30
Video BIOS: 	 ??.??.??.??.??
Card Type: 	 PCI-E
DMA Size: 	 32 bits
DMA Mask: 	 0xffffffff
Bus Location: 	 0000:07.00.0
I'm intrigued by the fact that you asked what my Video BIOS version was, and to find that obviously this has not been detected!

Edit: Display model is Fujitsu P27T-6 IPS.

One symptom I've forgotten to mention is the boot process stalls (for 180 seconds) during the phase "Waiting for /dev to be fully populated". Following those 3 mins, the system continues init normally. I can see in the logs that this happens during NVRM loading the nvidia module:

Code:
# cat /var/log/kern.log

crw-rw---- 1 root video 195, 255 Sep  9 09:33 /dev/nvidiactl
Does any of this help diagnose the problem? It seems it may have something to do with udev, no? I ran across this in other contexts, but have failed to understand what it may mean in mine.

I sure hope you can help me figure this one out!

Sincerely,

Chris
