Default Re: Linux driver for GTX 460

Well... I replaced my "old" EVGA GeForce 9800 GTX KO with an Palit GeForce GTX 460 Sonic today and my X-Server crashes - or rather - "hangs" whenever my GPU is supposed to do something (be it OpenGL, VDPAU or sometimes even "twinview").
My mouse moves then, but nothing else. I can only hit reset or shutdown my PC via the power-button (everything in the background is still working, so ACPI events are cought).

I already mailed linux-bugs

EDIT:
Oh...

Default Re: Linux driver for GTX 460

I can also confirm that it does work with newest driver, albeit its not officially supported but it seems to be working. I haven't tried any linux games yet, but 2d seems to be working fine.

This is the exact same behaviour I'm experiencing. Oh btw 195.36.31 seems to work flawless so far.

Oh... I didn't think that version 195.36.31 would support the G104 at all!
But you're right! Works almost perfect! TwinView and OpenGL are working BUT VDPAU is not
And that's one of the main reasons I bought a new card.
Well maybe the next upcoming driver will work again

And BTW:
With 256.35 PowerMizer uses the Performance Level 0 (NV Clock 25 MHz, Memory Clock 135 MHz). It seems to crash when changing Performance Levels.

195.36.31 starts at Performance Level 1 (NV Clock: 405 MHz, Memory Clock: 324 MHz). No crashes when switching.
And when using TwinView, it alsways uses Performance Level 2. Same as Windows.

Is Dual Monitoring this demanding that you have to use the highest Performance Level?

Not sure how to confirm if VDPAU is working everything seems snappy VLC works fine, SC2 beta rocked b4 it ended a couple days ago, and Compiz works. If theres an easy way to test let me know and I'll try to verify.

I can't confirm dual monitor as I don't have one laying around however mine did default powermizer to 1, and I was able to change 'Preferred Mode' to 'Prefer Maximum Performance' and it changes it to level 3 and persists through reboots.

Default Re: Linux driver for GTX 460

I'm using 256.35 and have no problems with TwinView. It's on the lowest performance level (50/135 on my card) most of the time (I don't use compositing in KDE).
I also didn't see crashes or freezes when using VDPAU or OpenGL (then it switches to higher performance levels without a problem).

I'm using Fedora 13 and my card is a Palit GTX 460 Sonic.

For VDPAU you can test http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=133465

Default Re: Linux driver for GTX 460

I tried different Kernel-Options now (tried different xorg.conf-Options before) and nothing helps...
noapic nolapic acpi=off pci=nomsi pci=nommconfig... Still, my X-Server will hang...

Well... Maybe I'll do some more intensive Testing on my weekend... But for now, nvidia-drivers-195.36.31 are working fine (except VDPAU, like I mentioned ).

Default Re: Linux driver for GTX 460

Okay... Now I've done some more testing and logging.
Here are the results.

For every Test-Case I will attach four files:
1. nvidia-bug-report from starting with normal running-script (tries to start gdm)
2. nvidia-bug-report from starting with startx -- -verbose 6 -logverbose 6
3. Xorg.0.log with the same conditions as 1
4. Xorg.0.log with the same conditions as 2

1. Current stable running nvidia-drivers-195.36.31.
Kernel-Parameters: none (MSI, APIC and ACPI enabled)
Crashes/Hangs: None
195.gdm.nvidia-bug-report.log.gz
195.startx.nvidia-bug-report.log.gz
Xorg.0.log.195.gdm.log.gz
Xorg.0.log.195.startx.log.gz
