Default GeForce 7300 GS crashes

Hi everyone:

I've been experiencing several system crashes since I installed nvidia drivers 100.14.19 on my new Ubuntu i386 box. I have twin GeForce 7300 GS PCI-E onboard and crashes occur at anytime. When starting Xorg (7.2), when running glxgears, etc.

Sometimes it only freezes for seconds and then continues, sometimes it doesn't; sometimes mouse works during freezes, sometimes not, sometimes it doesn't boots xorg and it won't let me do anything but reset.

I've also tried 9755 driver version and same thing occurs.


Important is that it doesn't happen with the opensource nv driver, so I suspect it's a problem with the propietary one.


When it do works it does it perfectly.


I'm attaching NVIDIA bug report with all relevant system information.


Also, here's dmesg output after a crash and then after another:

First crash:

By the way I have Intel Core 2 Duo at 2.4 Ghz, 2 GB RAM and 2.6.20-16-generic #2 SMP i686 GNU/Linux, for those who won't read NVIDIA bug report.


Hope you can help me and specially hope NVIDIA can help us, as I know this is something that happens to lots of people.


Cheers.


Sirius.


UPDATE: Disabling Composite Extension stops crashes. I was using Compiz Fusion (latest) in situation above, when disabling it and the Composite extension, it no longer crashes. I must disable also the AddARGBGLXVisuals option for it to works.
Even with SLI enabled it no longer crashes, and by the way, it runs about 50 FPS faster (glxgears benchmark).

Default Re: GeForce 7300 GS crashes

Actually crashes haven't dissapeared.

Although I'm running with Composite and those visuals disabled, and no longer in Compiz, I'm still having those annoying crashes.

Now X starts always, but it happens suddenly after hours of running steady.

Don't know what happens.


Help appreciated.

Cheers.

I'm having a similar problem. What worked for me is falling back to driver 100.14.09. This stopped the crashing on my computer.

I think this problem needs to be fixed soon because it looks like a lot of people are experiencing similar problems.

Good luck!

Thank you for your response NeoNecro, I'll try that and see what happens.

I think we (ALL who have this same problem with different cards and configurations) should post a severe complaint to NVIDIA for having such bad drivers for linux, when their cards are most used, and most importantly because of ATI's recent release of GPU specs. If NVIDIA doesn't fix these problems, ATI drivers could take the lead and we would no longer buy NVIDIA cards for our Linux machines, what do you think?


Cheers.

Hey,

There is a topic about this filled with people who have the same problem: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=98638

I wouldn't mind using an older version of the driver if someone would answer to my questions, propose a solution or just tell me that they are fixing this in a newer version. But I have this topic open for three days now and not even one reply from anyone of this forum.

I don't think it would be to hard to fix something that works in a previous version of the driver?

Also I think you right, we should join forces and demand for a working driver!

Hi,

Thanks, really, for saying me that about the 100.14.09 driver, now I have a stable and usable machine.

It looks like this fixes the problem for some of us, so I agree with you, why did they scrambled the driver when releasing subsequent versions?

I'll open a thread on the subject of demanding better drivers, so we can gather more and more people and cause some change.
