The mouse pointer stays responsive here. The Xorg process is taking 100% of CPU Load though. This just happens when switching to a vt. When i disable the connection to acpid for the nvidia driver, the server will loop, if it is enabled (by default) the server breaks.

Hello,

I ran into this issue as well, using openSUSE 11.3 x86_64. I solved the problem by upgrading the kernel to Linux 2.6.36-93-default x86_64. After the kernel update, ALL lockup issues and heavy xorg cpu usage issues were solved.

I am using Linux kernel 2.6.35.8. I will try upgrading to Linux kernel 2.6.36.1.

I am getting these same lockup issues when using Mplayer over VDPAU. Using it over VA-API, I have no issues (same with VLC -- no issues).

I am also using 260.19.21 on Ubuntu 10.10 with Compiz.

I updated to kernel 2.6.36.1 and nvidia-beta to version 260.19.26-1. I played for around an hour and didnítí got a loop in my Xorg log. But still some hiccups for 10sek or so ((WW) NVIDIA(0): WAIT(Ö)). Iíll try to make some more testing today.

Hey guys,
Am running gentoo with the latest stable driver (stable by Nvidia that is), getting the same problem as others in this thread... the whole system goes out to lunch after doing a backtrace and even the magic syskey won't reboot it.

Took a snap of my screen, anyone seeing similar?

I run Gentoo Linux (amd64). Things do not quite look like they do for you, but I think I have had those vertical bars happen. Upgrading the kernel so far appears to have fixed the issue.

As a precaution, I also upgraded xorg-server to 1.9.2.901 (1.9.3 RC1), which I previously had masked as a troubleshooting measure. In addition, I upgraded to the new beta drivers today, although things seem appeared fine with the previous measures. Upgrading to the new beta driver putting the ebuild into a local overlay, changing its version to 260.19.26 and running ebuild ... digest on it.

Am on Xserver 1.9.2.901 with gentoo kernel .36-r3 (x64 too), been doing this since around late September onwards.. I'll give a try modifying the nvidia-driver ebuild to run the new beta.. be nice to get rid of this issue.

Which tree are you using? Stable or unstable? The package for the latest stable version is keyworded so it is not available for Gentoo Linux's stable tree.

nouveaus 2D performance on rotated monitors is nearly unusable (and i'm only speaking of editing text/code with gvim..)

Currently i'm looking at ATI cards.. it's said that their drivers became pretty well and also gained zaphodmode support latelty. Maybe i'll spend some cash and get rid of that nvidia disaster.

There is a difference between the nouveau driver and nvidia's binary driver. This forum is for issues involving's nvidia's binary driver. It is not the place to seek help for issues involving nouveau.
