Default Re: Random crashes, NVRM Xid messages

OK, obviously such symptoms could be the result of different underlying problems, but...

in my case, what *completely* cured the problem of random freezes and Xid messages (after weeks of painful experimentation) was removing all kernel modules that have to do with thermal sensors. I have also disabled all the relevant plugins from gkrellm, in order to prevent such modules from being loaded automatically.

The system is rock solid now, running for 2+ days straight under KDE+composite without a single glitch.

I suspect that some such program or kernel module is periodically polling/generating interrupts under nvidia driver's nose, messing up the interface. It would be nice if someone could debug this to the end, though.

Hope this helps,
