Default Re: nVidia driver + hibernate = no go?

As far as I remember I never had any problem using suspend to ram with 7600GT, under unstable ~amd64's gentoo.

Update on ArchLinux:
X Server 1.5.0 RC6 is soooo slow, so I tried getting 1.4.2 to work and I did it, by removing 100dpi and 75dpi fonts from xsever. In Arch these packages are called xorg-fonts-100dpi and xorg-fonts-75dpi. X does not crash at all.
Edited my post above a well.

Default Re: nVidia driver + hibernate = no go?

It's been a while now, so update on the drivers and stability (please note that I'm now using ArchLinux only (X - 1.4.2)):

177.8x series: suspend works, hibernate beeps and waits couple of mins but works, X does stuck for a 30 secs when restarted
180.06: suspend completely broken (blank screen, nothing works - no ctrl+alt+bkspc, no ctrl+alt+del, no wireless or bluetooth lights), hibernate beeps and waits couple of mins but works, X does stuck for 30 secs when restarted

177 series + IPP=2 has nasty bug - desktop environment slows down a lot after some period of usage. Period is not measurable, it just happens. With IPP=0 everything is fine during all the week (didn't test for longer), so it seems IPP has a bug.
I can't test this with 180.06 as suspend is broken and I can't use the driver generally.

Default Re: nVidia driver + hibernate = no go?

Short update to let You all know, 180.25 rocks!
Suspend seems to work - 3 suspend cycles + 1 hibernate + 2 suspend in a row and it resumes fine.
Hibernate does what it always did: beeps, wait 30 secs, beeps wait 30 secs and then resumes, apart being slow this is not an issue, annoying, but it works...
This means that finally laptop users will be able to use speed and other improvements found in 180 series, yay!
I probably will post again after through testing or in case of fatal issues...

P.S. 3-4 months and laptops can use the driver

Default Re: nVidia driver + hibernate = no go?

Now that I am running Ubuntu Intrepid I have had 0 suspend issues. It does not have the 30second delay problem either. It suspends/resumes to/from ram in a few seconds. I have literally suspended/resumed hundreds of times and never had a single failure.

I'm running 177.82 driver (haven't bothered to update to 180 yet).

Default Re: nVidia driver + hibernate = no go?

180.25 works perfectly here: Suspend-to-Disk (via TuxOnIce) works (and had before, once we set an appropriate ExtraPagesAllowance and after setting PowerDownMethod to "4") and now, Suspend-to-RAM works (for the first time in a long time) as well, too!

Thanks, NVidia! Hey Aaron, what was the regression youse guys had found (and why did it take so long to find it? )

kcrudup, do Your laptop behaves the same as mine when resuming from hibernate? I'm using TuxOnIce as well, but via the pm-utils...

Kirurgs: I get no beeping or otherwise, but everything does work fine (incl. S2RAM more than once, which never happened before even when it "worked", IIRC).

Default Re: nVidia driver + hibernate = no go?

Hi Kirurgs,

i know what you mean.... sadly to nVidia its more important to bring up new things in the drivers then releasing a stable 2D driver for Linux.
Nearly everyone with newer cards are having problems with hibernate or the powermizer.
At nVidia they say they cant reproduce the problem.... good excuse, cause when you say that, there is no problem.... what you cant see you cant fix.
Little bit childish, but thats the way it is!
Im having problems with both hibernate and the powermizer, do i have a exotic system you will ask? well just Fedora 8 with a GTX 260.
Im struggeling with problems since i got the card and that was in November, now end March (5months later) still have the problems.
I have giving up hope on a stable 2D for my card

There are to ways to solve your problems:
1 Use the very stable VESA driver, wich is much better then the nVidia driver in 2D (dont laugh its really true)
2 Buy a ATI card, they can provide good driver support on their products and if you have a problem they listen and give support.

Good luck!

If my problem still on a new release, i'ḿ going to Buy an ATI graphic card....i buy this because i hear this have better drivers... but i don't believe now.
Thanks!
