Default 169.07 continued problems on dual-core/SMP

Continue to have the same lockups I have experienced since the 100.14.11 driver version on a dual-core laptop....booting with maxcpus=1 seems to make things more stable, however this is not an acceptable solution in my opinion as performance is greatly diminished.

Is there any viable work around for this problem or is there going to be a driver that actually addresses and resolves this problem? 169.07 does not work.

I am more than happy to post anything, here is some errors that get spit out to the kernel ring buffer as it locks up:

/var/log/messages-20080106:Jan 3 09:04:57 xps-m1710 kernel: NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 6, PE0000 1808 00000008 0000fa10 00ffffff 00000001

I also still have this problem (i.e. after several hours of using compiz, I get screen flickering and eventually X freezes), albeit not nearly as frequently as with the 100 series driver. I have a 7950 GTX Go card with a Intel dual core processor. Any one else have this problem with this card?

I long long time have lockups, but without Xid message. I experiment with maxcpus and 100.14.09 and other "workarounds", but I have lockups again and again and again! NVIDIA why you sleeping???


PS: Now I try to use legacy driver with low GPU frequency speed... But I don't hope...

Default Re: 169.07 continued problems on dual-core/SMP

I agree --- I had no issues when I was running on the 100.14.09, then the 100.14.11 and all since have had lockups -- it was worse when using the 100.14.11 and .19, almost once an hour if not more often at times, then the 169.07 came out and it was touted to fix these issues, it worked well for about a day, but then degraded again, and continue to have the issue --- it doesn't always lock up, but it is guaranteed to get intermittent quick screen flashes about once to twice every 10 minutes, then sometimes after the flash it locks

I have been running NVIDIA or another flavor driver (livna's kmod-nvidia) for about 3 years and never had an issue like this that wasn't fixed or even addressed ....

maxcpus=1 or noapic apci=off isn't acceptable solution, although with these options there doesn't appear to be an issue so it is definitely with something in the dual-core nature

anyway any help would be appreciated - I tried all the suggestions in STABILITY PROBLEMS - PLEASE READ FIRST posting

I have the same card in a DELL XPS M1710 laptop

Is there a way to turn off CPU temperature monitoring without turning off the complete APCI interface or recompiling the kernel? It seems that the XID NVRM errors pop up after a check of CPU temp:

/var/log/messages-20080106ec 30 10:26:58 xps-m1710 kernel: CPU0: Temperature/speed normal
/var/log/messages-20080106ec 30 10:26:58 xps-m1710 kernel: CPU1: Temperature/speed normal

Then the NVRM errors posted above and then eventually the lockups

I am also going to add a POLL to this thread because I am curious as to just how big of a problem this is for folks

It happend again, this time it didn't lock-up, but at exactly 2:59:59 uptime is when this error spit out ... might be a coincidence but odd that right at 3 hours uptime it went off ... all I was doing was refreshing a forum page without any plugins ...

OK question to those with the problem:

Do you guys have the 64bit firefox running? and if so do you have nppdf.so linked properly?

rpm -ql firefox | grep nppdf.so
then also run:
/usr/bin/mozilla-plugin-config -i -f
and see if you might have a link error

I have downloaded Opera to test if this is the issue -- it seems that at times of flickering/lock ups npviewer.bin is running rather high .. Opera implements the adobe plugin differently so testing if Opera is more stable, just a shot in the dark

Now I have a freeze, but from ssh I kill Xorg and have message in log:

It's patched 100.14.09, on original 100.14.09 I have lockups without messages in log.
And I have more lockups when running tvtime on top....

Unhappy Re: 169.07 continued problems on dual-core/SMP

All days is the same:

Feb 28 14:48:52 nb1 kernel: NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 6, PE0000 1808 00000000 0000fdf8 00000000 00000001
Feb 28 14:48:52 nb1 kernel: NVRM: Xid (0001:00): 36, L1 -> L0

Block keyboard, none alt-f1..

Dirty solution:

In another computer make a ssh on freeze machine

ps -f | grep compiz

and kill -SIGUSR1 "process compiz"

PLEASE nVidia! are there any really solution???

This is the same Xid message I get when the powermizer causes corruption on 169.12. It was causing flashes and freezes on earlier versions. Maybe it'll work for you too. Check out:

Similar problem here. When I run an OpenGL-Application (e.g. glxgears) after some X11-uptime, first symptom is a messed up geometry. I.e. the glxgears window appears without visible left and upper borders in the top left angle of the screen. Trying do move the window makes the X-Server hang for several seconds. Other windows are "polluted" with glxgear's window content - see attached screenshot. There were no such problems with the 100.14.09, 100.14.11, 100.14.19 and older versions. I first saw the problem with 169.07.
Syslog shows:

Angry Re: 169.07 continued problems on dual-core/SMP

Athlon64 X2 5600+
Linux 2.6.24
X.org 7.3
Compiz Fusion 0.7.0
Geforce 7600GT

I can only use nvidia 100.14.19 driver. If I use any of the 169 drivers, X will freeze (mainly when I open nvidia-settings and select OpenGL/GLX Information... it always freezes with 169 driver).

I think the problem is with the RENDER optimizations made in the 169 series:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d...64_169.04.html

Improved RENDER performance.

They should check this.
