Default Re: 270.30 && KDE Konsole - system freeze after pressing maximize button

Same problem here. It started after upgrading xorg-server from 1.9.x to 1.10.x, and nvidia from 270.30 to 270.41.

I suspect the server upgrade is to blame, as other users have had problems with 270.30.

Looks like that was it. Downgrading xorg-server from 1.10 to 1.9 solved the problem for me (with 270.41).

There is also a very sloooow new version of libcairo2. It seems that this issue is reproducible only under KDE. I'm using Debian Squeeze with Gnome - no problems so far.

No... going to server 1.9.5 resolves the freeze problem but on some systems (see above
postings) maximizing, say firefox window, results in a black window, as well as konsole.
But there is no freeze just messed up konsole after that, sometime becoming transparent,
etc.

Also, while some have this problem on 1.9.5 others with same software and settings
do not. I can add to above that on my laptop with nvs140m there is no problem.

The console-resizing bug is a major issue. See the following thread from the ArchLinux forums:

https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/23381

Please fix this as soon as possible!

Please send solution for this problem.

On ArchLinux, the following workaround works. You'll need to find equivalent packages for your distro:

Downgrade to:
* xorg-server-common 1.9.4.901-1
* xorg-server 1.9.4.901-1
* xf86-input-evdev 2.6.0-2

I have dropped *hal* from my distro (http://wiki.debian.org/HALRemoval) I'm not going back, this is simple bug report for problem nvidia driver on konsole (kde 4.6.x).
Thanks.

So, is this likely to be fixed any time soon?

Perhaps if NVIDIA can't be bothered to fix this, then it could at least release the source code? Then the open source community could fix it themselves? Just a thought...

Best wishes, G.

Default Re: 270.30 && KDE Konsole - system freeze after pressing maximize button

According to other forums (Arch) the problem happens with other GPUs (intel, at least) as well, and according to my system it only happens with xorg server 1.10.1, it is gone with 1.9.5.

And I really doubt that the community would be able to fix this, it would take

1) persons with knowledge regarding X11 and drivers

2) a lot of time to work through the code

in order to fix this.

Kind regards

Fuchs

Thumbs down Re: 270.30 && KDE Konsole - system freeze after pressing maximize button

I should just add that it is possible to hang the system with gnome-terminal as well - certainly for users of Ubuntu 11.04.

Granted, gnome-terminal is not quite as unstable as konsole. But if you fill the terminal window (e.g. run "ls" on a large directory), then grab the edge of the gnome-terminal window and resize it a bit, then it will start creating some strange artefacts. If you continue resizing then eventually it will hang. Sometimes you will have to wobble it about a bit. Other times it will hang straight away.

Best wishes, G.
