Hello Ssambantham! Certainly!

Thanks.
1. I run it on 1600x1200, I've also tried 1280x1024 having the same effect, regardess of the resolution.
Here are the Nvidia-settings config file with the Flightgear settings I am using ('.fgfsrc' must be in the normal user's home folder when running the sim) both in the same archive, and another archive with my Xorg.conf :
nvidia-settings-rc.zip
xorg-conf.zip

2. It can be between seconds after running the sim and after 5 minutes.
Hangup durations: 10-20secs. (On the 3.2.17 realtime kernel, many times the hangups/freezes do not recover, hard reset using PWR button being the only option)
Hangup repetitions: Every 5 secs of gameplay for 3-8 times in a row... until I move the mouse to the upper corner and wait till the system unfreezes and press 'X' on the window/kill the program. It rarely happens, though, that I get in the beginning only 2-3 hangups/freezes in a row, allowing me to play for some minutes before another freeze occurs.

3. The sim is called Flightgear. (http://www.flightgear.org) I use the latest developer Git version, instructions can be found here:
http://wiki.flightgear.org/FlightGear_and_Git
http://wiki.flightgear.org/Building_FlightGear
Prerequisites: Boost, OpenAL, ALUT, PLIB and other OpenSceneGraphDependencies (eg, libpng), OpenSceneGraph 3.0.1.

Remark 1: If you are having difficulties/lack of time in installing FG, and since such a bug hasn't been reported by other users/developers, I can record a video at the time the bug occurs using my smartphone, if such a video can be of any use.

Remark 2: The same NVRM bug appeared some months ago, last time I was using Blender 2.60a to render a scene. It happened when I was working on setting up a scene on the layout, not during rendering.

Remark 3: I ran a benchmark called ''Heaven Benchmark v3.0 Basic", which ran quite ok, no bugs or hangups/freezes.
Here are the results:
file:///home/orpheus/unigine_20120520_1409.html
file:///home/orpheus/unigine_20120520_1358.html

I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can provide more info.

Best regards!

Hi muadib25,

Thanks for detailed and quick reply!

Yes, If you could upload a video at the time the bug occurs, that could be of great use to quickly try for reproducing this issue.

Hello again!

You're welcome, I hope this will thing will get resolved quickly.

Here's a video flying a 'UFO' on Flightgear.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyF1D...ature=youtu.be

The program freezes with an NVRM output at 0:33 and after a while exits. I was also lucky enough to get some rare behaviour such as the black dropouts at 1:01, seen usually after I updated to the latest driver. Usually if I dont start pressing buttons like in the video the simulator goes on after a while, until it happens again a bit later...

Let me know if you need more videos!

I think this issue is somehow connected with network (wifi) activity. Normally i can watch full 2h movie using mplayer without any problem, but if I start any (multi-connection) download, the same movie causes hard-freeze/kernel panic generated by Nvidia driver.

P.S. If I just start download without watching movie everything is fine.

Hey Qbanin!

Although I have no Wifi, I just tried running FG without network. No change here, unfortunately...

Hi muadib25,

Thanks for sharing repro video link.

I am trying to configure flightgear flight simulator at my end.

Can you help me provide step by step procedure for this software installation(from configure, and make install of this developer version of flightgear from source code) . That would be of great help.

Thanks.

Hi muadib25,

I am able to compile and install flightgear development version in an Ubuntu 12.04, X server ver: 1.11.3, Kernel - 3.2.0-20-generic, x64bit by using below wiki.

http://wiki.flightgear.org/Scripted_..._Debian/Ubuntu

Now, I am not able to fly the exactly same way as you mentioned in the youtube video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyF1D...ature=youtu.be

I tried to fly by using tutorials, but it is very slow and issue is not reproeing. And also, you mentioned all the settings as high.

Please also mention what are exactly those settings.

Thanks.

Hi Ssambantham!

Glad to read you made it compiling the program! What is your hardware, do you use a GTX_260 for this?

Regarding graphics settings:

Open Attachment 43970 from my previous post. You'll find there a text file called '.fgfsrc'. Decompress it and put it in the user's HOME directory. It should take care MOST of the settings (graphics, nasal, network, etc). Don't forget to change the callsign to something else, as well as edit this line to match your IP!!:
Code:
--multiplay=in,10,94.254.38.166,5000
As you can see if you open it, you can edit, uncomment and put new arguments without having to rewrite all this on the command line. More info on these commands can be found by typing
Code:
fgfs --help --verbose
. Btw, whatever you type on the command line OVERRIDES the ones at '.fgfsrc'.

Now, on the shell type:
Code:
fgfs --aircraft=ufo
When the game loads, right-click once to rotate the mouse function to the steering cross, PgUp for throttle and drag the mouse gently towards you.

The visual settings can be found up on the Menubar under 'View -> Rendering Options'.


Question: What does an 'NVRM: Xid (0000:02:00): 8, Channel 00000003' mean? Do you guys have a table as to what these warnings mean? I mean, it could mean that my card is damaged or something... Or?

Best Regards!

Two more observations:

1. The freeze does not occur if I am just sitting on the runway or if I hover in the air (i.e. no terrain texture loading takes place)

2. The Drivers 295.49 are more stable than 295.53, my system does not freeze so often...

Can U tell me please at least what an "NVRM: Xid (0000:02:00): 8, Channel 00000003" means?

'Cause if I know its a hardware problem I can then buy another card...


Thanks in advance!

Ongoing nightmare here too. I've already posted my bug reports. I have had XID 1, 6, 8, 56. Also "GPU has fallen off the bus" and "os_schedule: Attempted to yield the CPU..." 9800 GTX+/MSI 790FX/Fedora 16.

I wanted to add what happens after I try to reload the nvidia module. Screen & keyboard lock up so I have to ssh from a remote host. I have to kill Xorg, compiz, etc to free up the module, then rmmod followed by insmod. Restarting X generates a stream of kernel errors, like this:
