Default Re: Dell Precision M6500 - Nvidia Quadro FX 2800M - Unusable with Gnome3


i confirm that issue still open with driver 290.10 with same error:

[ 241.961] (WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (2, 6, 0x8000, 0xdfff2fff, 0x0000088c)
[ 248.961] (WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (1, 6, 0x8000, 0xdfff2fff, 0x0000088c)
[ 251.962] (WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT (2, 6, 0x8000, 0xdfff2fff, 0x00004a74)

To reproduce it is only needed do this easy steps:
1. start gdm with gnome3
2. login
3. execute glxgears

after 1/2 secs laptop monitor go to power off and i can't restart my system.

Same problems with or without vsync, etc.

Please, how can i help you to identify where is problem on the driver with nvidia quadro fx ? I think that some functions aren't thread safe and multi core system and so on my laptop where there are 8 core i catch soon this issue.

Is obviously a driver error because same software version with a nvidia gtx 250 (driver 290.10) and gnome3 works fine without this problem.

I'm a developer and i want only use my video cards with all its features. Is there a way to help you through test applications that could be simplify debug process? Is there a way to receive sources files and try to debug this issue from my self?
