Default Re: Recovering from NVRM XID errors

I am quite disappointed that no NVIDIA supporter replied here or tried to contact me. Since then many NVRM XID threads with no resultion appeared here in the forums.

I wonder why a hardware error can not be gracefully handled from the driver software. If such an error occurs I would expect

a) some screen corruption in case of non-GL applications
b) some kind of GL error and screen corruption in case of GL apps.

Either of this would be much better than X hanging.

I hope the merger of ATi and AMD will put more pressure on nVIDIA, and they will put more effort in fixing their Linux and FreeBSD drivers.

ps.
Since setting back the AGP speed to 1x I did not experience the errors.
