NVRM: restoring bus mastering
Hi to all. I would appreciate some help in the following issue. Please excuse my bad english.
I'm running Fedora Core 2 with Gnome 2.6 on a P4 machine with NVidia GeForce 4 MX420 video card. At some point (I think after running MPlayer) it takes quite a while to open new programs in X (up to 2 minutes sometimes), I mean new gedit or xterm, not CPU or memory intensive ones. I get the following message on the first text console:
NVRM: restoring bus mastering! (/tmp/selfgz2250/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6106-pkg1/usr/src/nv/nv.c:2146)
Actually this file is not on my disk
I'm not sure whether this is the problem, but I'd like to know what this message means anyway. I also get an error in my Xorg.0.log file (see attachments)
- video card: NVidia GeForce 4 MX 420
- driver version: 1.0-6106
- distribution: Fedora Core 2 with all updates except kernel
- kernel version: 2.6.6-1.435
- video BIOS version: 04.17.00.45.af
- CPU: Pentium 4 at 2.4 GHz
- motherboard: Intel 845PE
- RAM: 256 MB (518 MB swap partition)
Thank you in advance

Re: NVRM: restoring bus mastering
First the normal X problems. It seems that the GLX portion of the nvidia drivers isn't used at the moment because there are some xorg/mesa files left on your system. The first thing to do is "updatedb" and then delete all files like libGL.*, libGLcore.* and libglx.* (find them using locate). Don't delete files with different names like "libGLU.*. After that is done reinstall the nvidia drivers and edit your X configuration file. In it remove lines like Load "GLcore" and Load "dri".
That NVRM error is I think not really an error. It is just a message from the nvidia kernel module. The file it mentions is just the source file where this message was created in combination with the line number.
Personally I think the slowdowns on your system are caused by the fact that you don't have very much system memory (only 256MB). When your system is slow it is likely using a lot of SWAP memory (swap is lets say 1000x slower than ram). Monitor what happens using "top" at times your system is slow.

I just started having system hangs and I found entries in my /var/log/messages file like this:
Aug 5 15:14:56 buttercup NVRM: restoring bus mastering! (/tmp/selfgz6563/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6106-pkg1/usr/src/nv/nv.c:2146)
These messages are in my log file at the exact same time as my system hangs, so this is definately related to these.
This is the first time I have ever seen this. Not sure what is causing it. but a google search found this link. Anybody else experienced this and found a solution?
