I get an hard lockup at start with a 6600 GT on x86-64 arch. The keyboard LEDs blink and then I see the Nvidia Logo. Nice feature.
That is on Gentoo with same software versions.

And the /dev/nvidia* devices are not created here. A well, maybe unrelated.

Downgrade to Xorg 1.6.3.901 fix my problem...

So 2 solutions:
- nvidia bug with xorg 1.7
- xorg 1.7 bug

How to track down problem?

Where'd you get xorg 1.7? It's not in the repos.

Same here - Arch x86, Nvidia 190.42 and xorg-1.7.1 = Seg fault.
Downgrading to xorg 1.6.3.

It happen to me as well. Looks like it crashes in gtk applications only.
I'm running KDE4, everything is OK, but working in gimp is not possible now and read emails in Thunderbird is risky :-(

I had not time to downgrade to 1.6.x yet.

Default Re: ArchLinux, xorg 1.7, Nvidia 190.42 => segfault

Hmm, I'm also experiencing segfaults on Arch x64 with Xorg 1.7.1 and nvidia 190.42, but with a very specific repro in my case.

I'm having a separate X screen setup with three screens (two screens - "left" and "middle" - on a 260 GTX and one screen - "right" - on a 8800 GTS). X starts up alright and moving the pointer between the "middle" and "right" screens works fine. But when moving the pointer between the "left" and "middle" screens (both on the 260 GTX), the pointer starts jumping between them like crazy, hundereds of similar Xorg log messages are written and eventually X will segfault. Here's the full log:

Lightbulb Re: ArchLinux, xorg 1.7, Nvidia 190.42 => segfault

I had a segfault too with latest xorg-server and nvidia-190.42.

On the Arch Linux BBS, jxy found that it was related to the "TwinViewXineramaInfoOrder" option : http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.p...648490#p648490

I first commented this line, and it worked. Now I have changed it from "DFP, CRT, TV" to just "DFP", and it works too.
Since everything worked fine with the 185.36 driver, this is probably a regression in the 190.42 driver...

I have 9800GT, and as mkyral said it happens in GTK apps, especially if I start thunderbird and it crashes after some seconds.
