Default black blinking glitch on 173.14.09

I've been observing unique graphical issues with the latest nvidia driver 173.14.09.

Every now and then the screen blinks with a black area, which lasts only for a short while. At the same time the following error is dumped to the system console:

Quote:
NVRM: os_map_kernel_space: can't map 0xe0100000, invalid context!
NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 6, PE0000 0200 05000000 0000fce8 007ea5df 03200000
NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 36, L1 -> L0
The glitch occurs quite at random, once or twice an hour, nothing annoying.

It might be unrelated but the following messages appear a few seconds after the glitch occurs:

UPDATE:
I've recently had some short freezes (4-5 secs), with the blinking glitch. Fortunately, it unlocks after a few seconds, allowing to continue. Console error below.

I ruled out overheating, GPU is at 56-60 Celcius at the time of the glitch.

My setup:

nVidia 7400 Go (mobile GPU)

openSUSE 11.0 - pae kernel

I am led to believe the issue is driver-related and not a hardware issue. The problem does not occur when running windows xp.

I will appreciate any help with solving the problem. Thanks!

I can confirm this issue which is *always* reproducible and yields the same warnings/errors as you get by starting korganizer (from kde 3.5.9) using 173.14.09 on kernels 2.6.25.10/11 and 2.6.26 at least. I haven't fiddled with InitialPixmapPlacement etc., just a "vanilla" install of the driver.

A temporary fix for me is to use 173.08; using this driver the symptoms appear on starting konversation if opera is running. if not, konversation starts flawlessly.

very strange issue. I hope this is resolved in the next driver release!

Can confirm that running kernel 2.6.25.11 on 64 bit x2. It's getting very annoying. Log has:

NVRM: os_map_kernel_space: can't map 0xe0500000, invalid context!

Meanwhile I also tested two lower 2.6.25er kernels:

2.6.25.4 dmesg says:

And on 2.6.25.9 it says:

recommended boot args pci=nommconf and idle=poll do not alleviate the issue

The exact same symptoms appear using the new bugfix-version 173.14.12.
Guess this bug was not fixed by the bugfix release
