Re: kernel: NVRM: os_schedule: Attempted to yield the CPU while in atomic or interrup
I started to get this error message a few days ago, out of the blue. No driver or kernel update was done for long time before. Since then it happens always when starting up the X server (using startx from command line).
I updated my kernel to the latest stable 3.2.*, (and still used the 285. NVIDIA driver) but it didn't help. I saw some noisy Nvidia splash page, then my machine freezes. (probably X server running at 100% CPU).
I had to fall back to the Xorg vesa driver that works fine.
Could this be the sign of a dying GPU ? (it's an old 8500 GT)
