Default Re: Crash of 3d applications with NVRM kernel messages

I just had this myself for the first time. I was Alt+Tab-bing from a 3D app to a 2D video.

nvidia-glx-177 (driver 177.82) on ubuntu 8.10
Linux ace1 2.6.27-11-generic #1 SMP Thu Jan 29 19:24:39 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux
With a single 9800GT

syslog/kern.log:
Mar 28 02:02:01 ace1 kernel: [177343.453159] NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 13, 0003 00000000 00008297 00001458 00000006 00000100

edit: dual-core Intel E7200, the card is an Asus 9800GT 512MB rev a2

Had to REISUB to regain control

I would add, I think it went into kernel panic on reboot, so I was unable to get a bug report log.

Have been unable to reproduce so far, even with n glxgears open, 3D games etc.

Hmm, not sure if it's the same issue. It sounds like your monitor is going into standby/just going black. I'm struggling to remember exactly what happened in my case, but I think the screen essentially froze (no visible corruption) but with the mouse pointer still responsive. Pressing buttons appeared to cause screen flashing. Was unable to switch to a VT, but could (on 3rd try) achieve a REISUB.

I was trawling through the huge thread here on 180.xx driver issues (>20 or 30pages) which sounds very similar, except everyone is mentioning startling visible screen corruption too, sometimes additionally with changes to the hue.

I'm getting fed up with these issues I can barely tell who's having the same problems as me, and a single Xid: message is of only so much help! The fact I can't reproduce the issue again is (whilst in some ways a good thing) hardly helping the debugging process. The amusing thing is, nvidia know that we've no choice: ATi linux drivers are hardly perfect either

One suggestion that the huge thread mentioned was disabling dual-channel RAM (if yours is running DC). So either a BIOS change or yank a module or two. Haven't tried myself yet as very busy this end & will shortly be away for a couple weeks

Another recurrence after alt+tabbing back to a 3D game (video also playing, CPU maxed with BOINC), this time there was also basic screen corruption, but it recovered successfully after ~ 2 minutes.

Same Xid message as before.

The only semi-relevant change that took place (a day or two) before the problems began was a couple of upgrades of xserver:

xserver-common (2:1.5.2-2ubuntu3) to 2:1.5.2-2ubuntu3.1
xserver-xorg-core (2:1.5.2-2ubuntu3) to 2:1.5.2-2ubuntu3.1

I haven't yet had time to try rolling-back to the previous versions.

Default Re: Crash of 3d applications with NVRM kernel messages

Just a couple hours after the prevoius Xid which I recovered from, I get another. This time I was just within a 3D game when it happened; no additional massive screen update like an Alt+Tab. This sounds similar to the larger thread, where the more Xids you get before rebooting, the more frequent they seem to become.

Sound looped, screens froze, no visual corruption. After 60 secs, sound recovered.
Couldn't switch to a VT, couldn't Ctrl+Alt+Bksp, etc. Waited 5 mins, no recovery.
SSH'd in OK, and killed compiz.real, which caused the machine to drop back to graphical login.

Bug report attached. (Ignore all the UFW firewall entries in dmesg; they're related to a program called Synergy on my LAN. I had to remove some of them at the beginning so the forum would let me upload it. The first Xid you see is the one two hours earlier, and the second is this one).

Logs are all standard:

kern.log:
Mar 31 07:01:42 ace1 kernel: [269831.112300] NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 13, 0003 00000000 00008297 00001458 00000006 00000140
daemon.log:
Mar 31 07:08:50 ace1 gdm[5997]: WARNING: gdm_slave_xioerror_handler: Fatal X error - Restarting :0
