6111 still bugs out on DVI
I have had this problem on 5 earlier versions of the driver. Typically, I'll be rapidly scrolling text in a terminal window (Eterm on Enlightenment) and the video signal will completely leave DVI spec. I will see thousands of different colored rectangles a few pixels across within bigger blocks, flashing and changing color but roughly the color of what the screen was displaying. The X server takes up 99.9+% of the cpu (most of the time, if the box hasn't locked up). (oh, I can log in remotely and see what it is doing) It requires a _cold_ boot, and hardware reset of the card, before it will work again. It happened sporadically on kernel 2.4.26, maybe every 50 hours of activity, usually only when a program, like compilation, is generating lots of output. The driver is otherwise very stable, as I just finished Doom3 with no crashes. However, it happened again right after booting into kernel 2.6.8 - I hope that's not a sign!
I don't see anything about it in the XFree86.0.log, but I'll attach if requested.
1) GeForce4 Ti4200 64 MB
3) RedHat8 with upgrades, including XFree86 4.3
4) video bios upgraded to latest
5) Dual Athlon MP 2400, 1 GB Ram, all scsi components.
6) Tyan Thunder S2469UNG mb.
P.S. It is very dangerous when it does this as it once fried the DVI receiver on my $1000 LCD monitor! Thankfully, Dell replaced it!
===> I have now attached nvidia-bug-report.log.
