Started crashing again.

Kernel: 2.6.39.3, Driver: 275.19.

I am using kernel-2.6.37-rc5 (vanilla) on Gentoo, nVidia drivers 206.19.29. The problem also appeared using any combination of kernel and drivers since I installed the card (I tried 2.6.33, 2.6.35, 2.6.36 at least, with older nVidia drivers as well).

This happens about once a day (maybe once every two days) and seems to be totally random. Eg, sometimes I just move my mouse on the screen, and bam, it hangs; sometimes I leave my computer running during the night (doing nothing), I return next morning only to find it has frozen.

I am sure the culprit is the nVidia binary drivers; if I remove them and install Nouveau drivers, no more crashes (I did that and it ran for 3 weeks without problems - I reinstalled the binary drivers 4 days ago and already suffered from 3 hard freezes).

I attach the log requested but it seems to me it does not contain any useful info - maybe the script had a problem?

How can I further help nVidia troubleshoot and fix this *extremely painful* problem? It prevents from using my computer in normal conditions...
It's a shame really.
I experience the same problems as well most of the time. But for me they occur when flash content would be playing on screen. So now I've commented out #EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode=1 in /etc/adobe/mms.cfg and hope that will help, unfortunately this means it's running without hardware decoding on youtube etc. Knock on wood, no freezes. On the other hand your card would use a different VDPAU so perhaps no relation.

Yes, you're probably right. I just installed the Flash-Aid addon and I'm pretty sure that it sett EnableLinuxHWVideoDecode to 1. It's sad that I can't play accelerated video in 2011 because of driver issues.

I have related problems to this bug report (i think) with a Gigabyte 560 TI card.

I am using Arch Linux with 2.6.39 kernel and propietary nvidia drivers 275.21.

I can't get to card to fail doing extress tests but any specific actions freeze Xorg and i have to reboot, for example it is very easy to freeze the card with cairo-dock using opengl and subdocks in parabolic view, it's not the only way but get really easy to freeze this way.

I have too problems with flash ghost images in a different desktop where the browser it is opened that get fixed if i disable hw acceleration in flash (to be fair i have tested this the last time in 275.19 version).

Using in powermizer the "Prefer maximum Performance" helps somewhat (make more difficult to freeze) but not fix the problem.

Hi All, here's my two cents for what it's worth.

I've been having what I believe is the same problem.
GTX460, Ubuntu 11.04 Kernel 2.6.38-10 (64-bit), Sandybridge chipset. Random crashes (completely random as far as I can tell) were occurring on average every 3-6 hours, this was a hard crash requiring a hard reset, and when playing audio, this resulted in looping, sometimes distorted.

A couple of days ago I removed the nvidia drivers, and reverted to the nouveau drivers. Since, I have had no problems for about 48 hours runtime!

I have just upgraded my kernel to 3.0.0, and intend on testing this out, however there is currently a problem with nvidia binaries on 3.0.0. Apparently the latest nvidia drivers from xorg-edgers solves this. Will report back with results.

Hi All,

I failed to get linux 3.0.0 + nvidia 175+ + ubuntu 11.04 combo to work.
I instead gave up, and upgraded to 11.10. I installed the default nvidia drivers, and have now enjoyed over 16 hours of run-time (never happened before!).

After some reading, I believe the 3.0.0 kernel was probably unnecessary, and I would recommend anyone else trying to solve this problem to upgrade to the 2.6.39 kernel and give that a shot. I can't recommend upgrading to 11.10 because it is way too buggy at the moment.

Good luck!

Lewis

For me the problem seems to be fixed (or much more difficult to trigger) with the new nvidia drivers 280.13 version in the same 2.6.39 kernel, i will report here if the bug persists.

Still crashing with 280.13 driver on 3.0.3 kernel. It's actually not that hard to make it crash. Viewing a WebGL page in Firefox should do it. https://demoparty.mozillalabs.com/gallery/51/akemi

nVidia, do you need anything else from us to solve this problem? Is there a fix in the works?

Does the following dmesg help at all?

I just updated to 2.6.39.3 from 2.6.38.7 and yes... the crashes are back

I am on 275.19 for the nvidia drivers. I will probably revert to 2.6.38.7 which had 0 problems.

I have a similar setup (Sandybridge, GTX 460 M, core I-7) running stock Ubuntu 11.04. and the Nvidia driver version (280.13). Causes kernel crash - after running about 4/5 minutes. nvidia-bug-report attached.

Can someone from Nvidia please at least give us some kind of response? I noticed that Windows users are having issues as well. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=nvidia+460+crash. Is there something wrong with the 460 hardware? Is it a driver issue? Is it a compatibility issue? Are you able to reproduce the problems? Should I be returning the card for a different one? Silence is the worst thing that you can do.
