Default 185.13: 30 second black screen bug worse

Dear nvidia developers

During the last few driver series you introduced a new bug, which causes a 30 second black screen on X restart (first X startup works fine).

According to you this bug is known and should be fixed, please see

http://nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=123003
(page 2, post from Aaron Plattner)

however, your new beta release has made the bug even worse.
The black screen is now there for more than 2 minutes (!).

Attached is a nvidia bug report. As I created it from a VT (as gdm refuses to start up after a limit of 120 seconds, which should be more than enough) the nvidia-settings -q all part is missing.

Even tough this info is in the bug log as well:
happens on a Lenovo Thinkpad R61 with an integrated nvidia quadro nvs 140 on Gentoo Linux.

Please fix this bug instead of making it worse _before_ releasing the new driver as final / stable.

Thanks in advance,

Fuchs

I'd be surprised if they'd fix that any time soon.
(..mhm..ok but I was also surprised that they managed to make it worse..)

Same problem for me, way worse than in the previous driver versions. I've been trying to get nvidia's attention for a while now on this issue (I've posted/bumped the original thread several times when new versions come out..)

Hey nVidia: What gives?

I just created this account, only to complain about this bug. Quite annoying when one has to restart X frequently.

I have a Thinkpad T61 with a Quadro 140 NVS.

Best regards

2NvFuchs:

Have you tried `sudo rmmod nvidia` as a temporary solution when trying to restart X?

artem: It does not do any good here. Only a full reboot and power cycle "resets" the card. Using kexec to reboot does not even help, even though all software is reloaded.

The module can't be unloaded when X is running, and depending on how X is restarted (for me the usual two cases are: zap via CTRL+ALT+Backspace or gdm restarting it because it crashed) you don't really have the chance to do so.

nVidia, any news or comments on this issue?
