Default 180.50 completely unusable (x86_64), on 7600GT

Hi nvidia guys,

firstly thanks for this release, unfortunately

180.50
is COMPLETELY unusable:

when starting blackbox I only get the colored background, and with fluxbox only the background get displayed, too

gnome starts up (I can see from the log and at least tomboy) but only vertical coloured lines of different width appear

the X-server can't be killed anymore with CTRL+ALT+Backspace (I have to check if that's the same with 180.29)

libGL.so general protection errors still seem to occur
gnome-settings(daemon) doesn't represent the problem accurately (if it still happens) since I couldn't re-compile that apps / package to gcc 4.4. / non-hardened yet
since I can't control or see anything (black screen / only background-coloured screen or screen with vertical lines I'm not 100% sure

and the "BEST": I now get the Xid messages too

some distribution specs:

Gentoo GNU/Linux ~amd64 (testing / unstable),
gcc version 4.4.0-pre9999 built 20090414 (prerelease) rev. 146039 (Gentoo SVN)
kernel 2.6.29-zen3

both zen-sources, kernel-config and gcc 4.4 shouldn't be the culprit since other users get libGL.so problems with >180.29 to 180.44, too

besides that I "fixed" former gtk-based applications segfaulting (it was seemingly a problem with hardened toolchain -> now I'm on non-hardened toolchain)

attached you'll find the obligatory bug-report

many thanks in advance for your cooperation

Default Regression with 180.50

The release 180.50 of the driver is unusable on my system (GeForece Go 6200 Turbocache). The X server starts but shows only garbage. However I can still input text and move the mouse pointer around.

I saw this in dmesg:
Code:
NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 13, 0000 80016100 0000008a 00000404 1c9dc801 00000800
NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 2, CCMDs 00000000 0000357c 00000224 00000000 00001000

Release 180.50 unusable on my system too.

GeForce 7600 GS PCI Express 16x

It seems that all is working (KDE3), but nothing is visible.

nice, so the next release will hopefully be in a usable state again

could you guys also please try to fix and reproduce the infamous libGL.so issue ?

thanks

By the way, you can work around the problem by running "xrandr -s 1; xrandr -s 0". A VT-switch will break it again until you apply the workaround again.

By the way, the screen is corrupt, but how to correct it to make the screen normal? Do not tell me to reinstall system.
